Speculation over whether the couple - who have been dating over a year - would be able to exchange vows at the historic church has been rife since engagement rumours started to fly earlier this year because it was thought old religious doctrine surrounding the royal family would stand in their way as the 'Suits' actress was previously married to TV producer Trevor Engelson from 2011 until 2013.

But a spokesperson for Westminster Abbey, where Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge previously got hitched, has confirmed nothing will prevent them from tying the knot at the church in London.

Speaking to the Express.co.uk, the representative for Westminster Abbey said in a statement: "The Abbey follows the General Synod Ruling of 2002. Since then it has been possible for divorced people to be married in the Church of England."

And the spokesperson confirmed the 36-year-old star's Jewish faith won't prevent her and the prince from enjoying an "interfaith" relationship either.

The royal pair have even got the go-ahead to wed at St Paul's Cathedral - just like Harry's parents Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana did in 1981.

However, the flame-haired prince - who is currently fifth-in-line to the throne - will need permission from his grandmother Queen Elizabeth to marry the brunette beauty.

And, although they're not yet engaged, Meghan is reportedly keen to have her best friend Priyanka Chopra to be her Maid of Honour when they head for the altar.

A source said: "She plans to ask her best friend Priyanka Chopra."

And Prince George and Princess Charlotte - the children of Harry's brother Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine - are set to heavily feature in the big day.

The insider added: "Harry adores his niece and nephew and so does Meghan."
