The Instrument of Consent features many sweet symbolic embellishments.Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will Wednesday on 19 May in Windsor.

The instrument of consent image was released a week before Harry is to marry the American actress at St. George's Chapel in Windsor. To the left of the text is a red dragon, the heraldic symbol of Wales, together with the UK's floral emblems-the rose, thistle and shamrock. It also includes two golden poppies, the official flower of Markle's home state of California.

Harry is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth and sixth-in-line to the throne and will marry Markle, star of US TV drama "Suits" next Saturday at Windsor Castle, home to the British royal family for almost 1,000 years.

With the birth of Prince Louis, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's third child last month, Prince Harry is now sixth-in-line to the British throne after his father Prince Charles, brother Prince William, and nephew Prince George and niece Princess Charlotte.

The Queen signed the Instrument of Consent in March.

Actors Murray Fraser and Parisa Fitz-Henley talk about "Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance" which premieres in the U.S. this weekend. The Queen's signature, "Elizabeth R", can be seen at the top right of the document. Beneath the Label are olive branches, adopted from the Great Seal of the United States.

Known as the "Instrument of Consent", the document in which the Queen officially recognizes the marriage is "hand-written and illuminated on vellum by one of a panel of scrivener artists retained by the Crown Office", according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

Tens of thousands of visitors are expected in Windsor on the couple's wedding day on Saturday.

Harry, 33, and Markle, 36, are set for a very different kind of royal wedding, asking guests to consider donations to their chosen charities in place of showering them with wedding gifts. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and elections to championship games and royal weddings.
