In only a month-and-a-half's time, 2018's most anticipated wedding is set to take place.

On May 19, Prince Harry will wed American actress Meghan Markle at St. George's Chapel in front in front millions of people excited for the couple to cement their eternal love for each other.

As any loved-up pair, thoughts of separation are far from their minds, but as even the royal family knows, the possibility is always there.

However, the beloved red-headed prince is so sure of his relationship with Meghan, he has reportedly refused to have her sign a prenup.

Harry is worth an estimated $40 million compared to Meghan's $5 million net worth. While the disparity is high, a friend of the couple said Harry has complete faith in his soon-to-be marriage.

"There was never any question in Harry's mind that he would sign a prenup," the source said. "He's determined that his marriage will be a lasting one, so there's no need for him to sign anything."

Like his brother Prince William - who also doesn't have a prenup - Harry inherited $14 million from his late mother, which adds to other various assets. While Meghan gained her fortune through her successful acting career, it pales in comparison.

However, while Harry is certainly smitten with his future bride, it's rumored not everyone in the British monarchy feel the same way.

On March 16, Queen Elizabeth II gave her official blessing for Harry and Meghan's impending wedding.

Abiding by the rules of the British monarchy, the Queen must consent to every marriage of the first to sixth royal family member in line to the throne and Harry just makes the cusp at fifth.

However, several people are speculating the official consent letter implies Elizabeth holds favoritism towards her granddaughter-in-law Kate Middleton to Meghan.

It reads: "I declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which Consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the Books of the Privy Council."

While nothing seems out of the ordinary, the public noticed a difference in the Queen's consent letter to William and Kate. She referred to the Duchess of Cambridge as "our trusty and well-beloved Catherine Elizabeth Middleton," while Meghan is only referred to as "Rachel Meghan Markle."

However, Twitter account Gert's Royals was quick to point out it isn't actually a snub, as the letter seen was written from the Instrument of Consent, and not from the Charter of Declaration, which was where Meghan's was from.

Since the letter from the Instrument of Consent occurs closer to the wedding day, it's expected the Queen will write a similar heartfelt acceptance.

Do you think Harry and Meghan's relationship will last?
