I suspect Harry has spent some time at Cambridge gatherings which included the Middletons, didn't James and Harry play football together the year that the Cambridges hosted the Middletons at Christmas? Any birthday events for the Cambridge children would include Uncle Harry & his nephew George may be in the wedding. Pippa and Harry spent some time together in the lead up to the Cambridge wedding & both attended the Percy wedding as Pippa is very close to Earl Percy, they may have both attended other weddings (I can't offhand remember.) Thus, it wouldn't surprise me if Harry was invited to Pippa's wedding, after all William only has one sibling.

I really don't think that Harry will be invited. Of course the families mix when there's an event like a birthday or holidays but other than that, I don't think Harry spends very much time with either Pippa or James outside of those events for family.

When my ex brother-in-law married, although he and my brother got along famously at family gatherings I hosted, my brother wasn't invited to the wedding. He was a family acquaintance. I expect the same with Pippa's wedding. If she's wanting to have an intimate wedding that includes people she really cares about and is close to, I would imagine Harry would be quite far down the line of people to invite.

Then again, I may be wrong. We have no clue really how close Harry is with the Middleton siblings at all. I'm just going by my own personal experience.

This is pretty questionable. Harry has spent the last two summers in Africa. He wasn't at Charlotte's Christening, either.

There's also no evidence that Harry has ever met the groom. I don't think Harry is all that close to the Middleton family.

That's totally normal. Charles Spencer wasn't invited to Andrew and Sarah's wedding, even though Diana and Sarah were best buds. And Westminster Abbey is like 6 times the size of St. Mark's, so the Yorks had a lot more room for courtesy invites than Pippa will have.

My bird (who is taking a sabbatical from adorning my posts) passes on a thank you for a wonderful bird cage liner article.

Not worth even clicking on but that's the Daily Mail for you.

It must be the slowest day ever for the dailies!

Seriously? As if a Mids is going to dictate to a Royal re. their Plus One status! Assuming the Royal is even considering gracing the Buckleburry Bash with his or their presence!

And assuming Harry is likely to be invited!

If it's a relatively small wedding, why would he be? It's not like he socializes with Pippa or James, and they have many more acquaintances they are more apt to include.

But- as you say, a slow news day, and it's clickbait.

(Still- wasn't it the case that Camilla was not allowed to sit with Charles at a society wedding, and that made him determined to marry her?)

If it's true I don't blame Pippa for not wanting to have her wedding turned into a 3 ring circus.

Of course they can dictate invites, it's their wedding. The late Duke of Westminster and the van Customs had no problem with not letting HRH Charles and his gf Camilla sit together, much to the rumored chagrin of Charles. The royals are there in a private capacity, they can't just pull rank and make all the decisions themselves.

This is a smaller venue, if Harry somehow makes the cut (doubtful), it would be beyond rude for him to insist they give one of their limited seats to his gf, who is likely a complete stranger to them.

When William and Harry attended Tom Parker-Bowles wedding they did so without Catherine and Chelsy. Neither appeared put-off by not getting a plus-one. Though the hacking trial revealed Harry said he'd rather be at Katie Price's wedding than Tom's , so maybe he was secretly peeved.

Absolutely! The Royal wedding is coming up on six years ago and apart from 2 christenings Harry has been out of the orbit of the Middleton clan so, unless Wills pushes for invites, why should Harry fall foul of an invite? It sounds like it's going to be a relatively quiet homegrown family affair, and why not?

Don't know about the C&C episode, when was that?

When was the last time we have even seen Harry and Pippa together in the same place? Christmas 2015? Harry spent the past 2 summers in Africa missing both Charlotte's christening and George's birthdays. He didn't join with the family celebrating Catherine's birthdays in Norfolk. Maybe they were both at some wedding since 2015?

However, there is no indication that they are anything more than casual acquaintances. Harry isn't part of Pippa's family. We see the Queen and Philip entertaining the Middletons more the Charles or any other royal not named Cambridge.

The church that Pippa is getting married is the same one that they went to Christmas service last year. It's not super huge. There will be limited amount of guests there. So it's going to be family and close friends. Harry is neither family or close friend.

It's all just click bait. The Sun even had an article that said that Kate not wanting to steal Pippa's spotlight was going to stay back and watch all the kids from the guests because no one was going to bring their nannies. Get real.

The people that invite the royals to their weddings arent worried about the royals stealing the attention away from them folks. Go back to royal family reels on British Pathe and you will see what I mean.

William and Kate are attending Pippa's wedding not as TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge but as her sister and brother in law. George and Charlotte aren't Prince and Princess of the U.K. but her nephew and niece.

She isn't inviting Royals just to have Royals there. The Cambridges are her immediate family.

They're family, but they're also senior members of the royal family. With them comes more media attention no doubt. Just stating that when royals are in attendance to these weddings, no one is worried about the royals stealing their thunder. Never have.

It's more that people who watches the royals attend weddings are more worried about the royals stealing the attention away from the brides. People have to learn to get over these worries.

When my husband and I married, we did not invite either mine or my husbands sisters then boyfriends to the wedding. Neither of us knew the men in question very well, so the question of inviting them was never raised, by anyone. I think the DM is just being naughty here. Slow news day. :)

Exactly. Same as other weddings they attend. They don't get invited to have a royal on the guest list. They get invited and attend due to a personal relationship. Pippa is not looking for the fame of having a future king as page boy, if she uses George, he is her nephew. Just like when William and Harry often serve as ushers in weddings, it simply speaks of their friendship to the groom.

The only weddings when royaks are invited as royals are other royal weddings. And that has been Edward and Sophie the last years. And even that only applies to official royal weddings. The private ones of defunct houses like the ottingen one Harry attended, or minor royaks like Amedeo which Bea attended, are again based on personal relationships.

IMHO it would be unlikely that Harry, but more particularly Meghan herself, would want to telegraph the message they are engaged before any announcement (unless they see this as a way of letting the cat out of the bag and they're cool with that). It would create a huge amount of fuss around the couple at a time when they are still incubating their relationship. So if they make that decision (if Pippa gives them the option) we can say it will be a significant moment.

The only difference would be if the couple had been seriously living together for several years. That would change things. Meghan would then be a fixture and an obvious invite.

So saying, if Harry does attend, and Meghan shows up on his arm, I'd guess Meghan is a keeper.

I'm use to wedding invitees being allowed to have a plus one. Usually that would be a significant other whether wife or girlfriend.
Harry's taken past girlfriends as his dates so I don't see why Meghan would be any different except for the media attention she and Harry generates.
