If this is accurate it just proves what I have been thinking (and saying) ...Harry is gonna be there (and I think alone due to the situation) and George/Charlotte will feature as members of the wedding party. I think Kate will too (matron of honor) but then again wouldn't shock me if she wasn't due to all the hoopla that would ensue.

Are they linking to an official statement, or have they been privately informed? It just seems out of place. Did CH announce which royals would be attending Mark Shand's funeral?

The only thing I can say is reporters and media outlets have said KP 'confirmed' The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will attend the wedding and Prince George will be a pageboy and Princess Charlotte will be a bridesmaid.

If people have any issues, take it up with KP

It's the wedding of George and Charlotte's aunt, so that's a little different than a friend of Harry and William getting married.

There has been much discussion about whether Charlotte and George would be in the wedding and if Harry would attend, so KP obviously thought it would be better to announce that information

Hello Magazine is repeating the claims but claims it hasn't been said if the Duchess will be in the wedding. That puts the lie to rest of the story - why would KP confirm some of the family roles but not all? It doesn't make sense. For that reason, I don't think it came from anyone official.

Well, I personally think this is a bad idea. W & C & H have worked hard to draw a line between their private lives and their public lives. Now KP is making statements about something that has nothing to do with the public sphere. It's sending mixed messages.

What's next KP announces when Harry has met Meghan's parents.

The information doesn't come from a 'source' but 'KP confirms'. Every royal reporter tweeted the information at the same time.

Maybe they wanted to stop all these stupid is Meghan going to Pippa's wedding / Pippa has banned her stories. There was even a stupid story in the Sun that Kate was going to watch all kids and not even go.

Exactly. It wasn't "KP announces" but it was KP sending out the facts to all the royal reporters and them tweeting and reporting it.

I don't think it's super odd. Instead of having people speculating, there the facts are, done and dusted.

They may be planning to release photos, in which case it's good to inform the press beforehand.

I think we've exhausted the discussion regarding how long Pippa and James have been dating, so let's please move on. Also, I've deleted a number of off-topic posts, as well as a few posts trading back and forth personal insults. Let's remember to mindful of one another and to keep the thread on topic. Thanks.

I doubt it will stop the Meghan stories, she's not a HRH so her attendance wouldn't be mentioned by KP. If anything this will ramp up the stories now that the tabs are sure Harry will be there. Also now that the wedding has been given the official seal of KP, the tabs will be even more eager for Meghan to attend an "official" wedding.

Like I said, I don't agree with KP's choice here.

Agreed. KP is setting a bad precedence here if they plan on releasing information on everything the press speculates about. IMO it just give the usual suspects more Middleton 'social climbing" material.

Why should this fall back on the Middletons? They didn't force KP to issue a press release, so I don't see how this could get used as "social climbing" material.

Folks, KP released this information because this is an event where William, Catherine, Harry and the Cambridge kids will be attending and participating in. That's the only reason why they gave this info to the press. Other than that, KP really don't comment on private citizens.

I think the Palace did the same thing when Charles and Diana attended Charles Spencer's wedding and the weddings where William and Harry participated in as kids.

Royal journalists on twitter are already grumbling about KP doing press releases for the "non royal" Middletons.

I don't remember them releasing a press statement for this, though it's possible, I didn't follow the royals as closely back then. I hope they didn't or I can't write this off as a one time mistake.

It's just sad when KP doesn't know what it's doing.
