Queen Elizabeth is really impressed with her granddaughter-in-law Meghan Markle. A source revealed in the new issue of a magazine.

The queen is thrilled by Duchess of Sussex's recent trip to Africa, where she showed her more mature side and therefore has earned the royal's respect.

"She's seeing a more mature, responsible side of Harry, and she's really impressed with how Meghan's upped her game," told the source to a magazine.

Looks like the 'Suits' actor's efforts have paid off. 'This is the real Meghan', added the source. "It's not an act. And while she'll never replace Diana, she's determined to follow in her footsteps".

Soon after the 38-year-old royal tied the knots with Prince Harry in May 2018, she quickly demonstrated that she is intelligent, polite and keen to learn, a source previously told a magazine, adding that her enthusiasm toward living a life of service and humanitarianism excites the queen and it's just the type of vim and vigor she likes to see in someone.

Meghan Markle has tied a ribbon at the site in Cape Town where a student was murdered last month, in a gesture of solidarity with those who have taken a stand against gender-based violence.
