If Zalie's parents sat in the Quire area then the grandfather could have sat in the regular seats. If the parents sat in the regular seats then I can see why the grandparents got seats in the Quire. Again these people sat on the bride's side of the the Quire and if there were seats for them, then seats were available for Meghan's family members if they were present.

Its entirely possible that any members of Meghan's family that did attend the wedding realized that to keep matters from becoming worse than they were, it was best to not publicly announce that they were even there. As has been said, a guest list has never been released.

We will never really know but I can understand the reasoning that if any of Doria's relatives or even Markle nieces and nephews attended, they'd prefer to be in the shadows rather than become tabloid fodder or dissension within their family.

The parents were part of the wedding party (as it was ) .Jake was a groomsman and Zoe was one of the mothers who arrived with the kids . The grandmother (Lady Caroline Warren)is the daughter of the Queen's BFF ,her and her siblings are super close to Charles ,her son is one of Harry's childhood friends (hence Harry being godfather to Zalie) not just some random.



And as I already explained there was no bride's side of the Quire . The Royals were on one side and the other side was split between his maternal family and friends ,his aunt and Meghan's mother and friends .


There was no way Ashleigh (Meghan's niece and daughter of Scamantha) was going to want the publicity and have her mother (who lost custody of all 3 of her children) who she has managed to get out from under lashing out at her in the press .


This is all beside the point . The Duchess of Gloucester married in and cut off the paternal side and it hasn't affected her standing why should it affect Meghan .


Different people have different relationships with their families and frankly it is nobody's business but Meghan's which of them she wants to have in her life .Not yours and not the self appointed guardians of family relationships on the Royal beat (many of whom are still paying her crappy family members to bad mouth her )

That's a very good point. And the same might be true for Meghan's friends, too, though on the flip side it would be hard to keep a low profile at such a high profile event.

If you are an 'unknown', you are of no interest to the media busy royal or celebrity spotting. It is possible that some of Meghan's maternal relatives were present but would have been totally ignored.

The big plus of this is that having not made themselves known to the media they are not banging on their doors for interviews or all the 'dirt' about Meghan and her mother.

Its a win for all around.

The point is that if they were there they wanted to fly under the wire. Considering how the media has hounded Doria and others, its understandable they didn't wanted their faces all over the internet. If they were sitting in the quire, they would have been identified by everyone. Sitting in the audience allows them to come and support Meghan without being drawn into the circus. It wasn't a matter of there not being enough seats.

In the study below (and yes I know it's the Fail reporting it but it is legitimate) 70% of anti-Meghan tweets sent over a two months period were found to have come from just twenty trolls!

This was in my Youtube feed today. I see verification in this because one of the trolls has had to disable anonymous posting on one of her blog accounts and not allow it on her personal website.



Wanna say it with me? "YAAAAAAAY!!!!!"

YAAAAAY! And I would add...FINALLY!!! The 'right to free speech' does NOT include the right to 'hate speech'. People are entitled to their opinion, they can also then bear the consequences for voicing that opinion in a hate-filled and vile, cowardly manner on someone who can't answer back anymore.

As Fergie said, much of social media has been turned into a sewer.

For me, this week has had a double whammy in it that has the BRF on the power play against the negative media and the negative trolls. First came the rules and guidelines that were enforced on the royal social media sites.

Then the Queen shoots and scores the winning goal by announcing on International Womens Day that Meghan is named the Vice President of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust and specifically says she will focus on women and girls.

No question about it. Meghan is part of a winning team and is definitely valued as a team player. Can't get better than that.

Yes there are some Markle relatives We don't hear from like two of Samatha's kids and some cousins.
We can only speculate why Meghan has issues with her family. We just don't have all the facts regardless the interviews from a few family members. Meghan is basically a nice person with family issues we don't have all the facts.

This from the Daily Mail. Take with a grain of salt.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...baby-born.html

If this story was a sanctioned leak from Meghan it would have made its way to People like the letter. This could be a leak by Sam and Dad to force an invitation.

I agree - I believe this leak was sanctioned by Samantha and her father to force a reconciliation. Good luck - Meghan is formidable.

I did love the video in that Daily Fail article of Meghan and Prince Charles sharing a little joke and laugh - they are very at ease with each other...it's great to see

Wow I though when her father release her private letter was the end of their relationship. If this story is true that would be great. It would be sad if Mr Markle missed seeing his new grandchild. They love each other I hope in time they can rebuild their relationship. So I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I don't think it would be wise for Meghan to reconcile with Samantha. If she and her father were to be invited over to England for the christening of Baby Sussex and Sam were to see any of the royals or the inside of any of the Palaces she would IMO be making hay out of this for eternity. And she is likely to turn at any moment, however she has been treated and start spitting venom again.

Thomas is a bit different. I do think he has been influenced by Sam to do things he wouldn't normally have done. If he sees Harry and Meghan and gets a handle on things I believe he could and would keep quiet for good. He does at least have some genuine affection for Meghan.

I am not buying it. I would not be surprised if Samantha is the source. Pretending to be Meghan's close friend.

The other reason I think this story is a Sam fueled mess is that Meghan referred to her as Dad's other daughter in her letter. I question the timing of the news. The BRF was at Westminster Abbey yesterday showing a united front with chatting, kisses and chumminess between Charles and Meghan that had to bum out Dad.

Thomas made the conscience choice to side with Sam.

Yep, I was thinking the same thing.
