Queen Elizabeth may be small in stature, but her influence, not only on the British Isles, but all over the world, is mighty. And thanks to the upcoming nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, those tuning in will be reminded of just how important she is. The queen's role at the royal wedding has yet to be disclosed, but those close to the royal family have said that it's definitely important. While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, royal expert Katie Nicholl called the queen's role in the big event "very prominent and important," but what does that mean exactly?
When looking into the history of royal weddings, the queen has seemingly always had a heavy hand within — both leading up to and during the big events. Whether giving the royal who's ready to wed her seal of approval on their future spouse, or opening up her home to host the big day, whatever the queen wants she seems to get. But seriously... when the rest of the world is waiting for you to give your public blessing for the royal engaged couple, it's clear that you're kind of a big deal.
