Prince Harry to marry? Duke replies with diplomatic laugh

By Tony Jones

The prospect of Prince Harry marrying girlfriend Meghan Markle has been raised with the Duke of Cambridge - who responded with a diplomatic laugh.

Paul Wright, general manager for William Cowley Parchment Makers, told the Duke: "If Prince Harry marries Meghan then his certificate will be on our vellum."

William met craftsmen who make the vellum for royal documents on a visit to Milton Keynes.

The Instrument of Consent is an elaborate document made from vellum, proclaiming the monarch's approval of a marriage. William burst out laughing when told about the use of the vellum and Mr Wright said about the Duke's response: "He just laughed - a nice laugh."
