Buckingham Palace staff summoned to an important meeting this morning

Staff at Buckingham Palace have reportedly been summoned to an important meeting this morning.

The news comes as speculation mounts that an engagement announcement between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is imminent.

Speaking to the Daily Star Online, a source said that a ‘big meeting’ is being held today only fueling speculation further.

The source said: “They are set to release a statement from Kensington Palace later on, but if it is not released today it will be on Monday.

“I think the announcement will be about Harry and Meghan’s engagement, but we will have to wait and see.”

The alleged meeting at the palace is reminiscent of a gathering called earlier this year when the Duke of Edinburgh retired from public life.

The BBC is reportedly prepared for an imminent announcement of a royal wedding as speculation mounts that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are about to reveal their engagement.

According to the London Evening Standard, “the BBC is primed for a royal announcement.”

Sources say that an engagement announcement could come as soon as tomorrow, or early next week.

Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first appeared in public together at the Invictus Games, speculation has been rife that an engagement would be imminent.

The American-born actress recently departed the US TV drama, Suits, as she and her dogs are reportedly in the process of moving to London.

The Succession to the Crown Act 2013 states that up to the sixth-in-line to the throne must have The Queen’s permission. Even if Harry waited until after the Duke and Duchess’s third child to be born in April 2018, Harry would still need approval as he would only fall from fifth to sixth.

Since the news emerged that Prince Harry had whisked Meghan away to Africa for a romantic holiday in August, speculation has been rife that an engagement would be imminent.

These rumours were strengthened after Meghan conducted an interview with Vanity Fair in September, where she spoke publicly for the first time about her relationship with the fifth-in-line to the throne.

    There were no large meetings called when William’s engagement was imminent. Maybe more duties being offloaded from QEII to Charles.
