AceShowbiz - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding on May 19 was romantic and all. However, the couple reportedly went through a hard time before finally walking down the aisle.
Star magazine (via HollywoodLife.com) reported that Queen Elizabeth II had the Duke and Duchess of Sussex deal with some paperwork. "The word is when Harry and Meghan slipped into the antechamber before the ceremony at St. George's Church to sign the marriage registry, they also signed the prenup," a palace insider revealed to the magazine.
The insider added that the 33-year-old prince initially refused to sign the prenup agreement before "The Queen put her foot down."
"Harry's hands were tied and he had no choice but to cave in, and so did Meghan. When Her Majesty gives an order, Harry has to obey!" the insider went on saying. The insider also added that The Queen "is being extra careful about keeping the royal assets intact."
The documents that Harry and Meghan signed on reportedly clearly mentioned that "if Meghan and Harry split, she won't be walking away with the crown jewels." Moreover, Meghan would walk away empty-handed if they split with no children.
Fiona Shackleton, the highest-paid divorce attorney in the U.K., was said to draw up the documents and was allegedly waiting in the secluded area for Harry and Meghan to sign the documents. "She may have been there to make sure the paperwork went through without a hitch so Meghan doesn't get a dime if they do end up divorcing," said the source.
Previously, Fiona handled Prince Andrew's split from Sarah Ferguson 1996. She also handled Prince Charles' divorce from Princess Diana.
The prenup rumors aside, Harry and Meghan allegedly enjoyed their private honeymoon in East Africa, where they enjoyed exciting activities including safaris, outdoor adventures and simply lying in the sun. "It was the perfect break and blend of their passions," a source shared.
