If you know a prince, you invite him to your wedding! (I certainly would)

I don't think that there's really any ulterior motive to inviting Harry to Pippa's wedding. With the closeness of family, I'd be very surprised even if Pippa still regarded Harry as Prince rather than just Harry who is her sister's brother-in-law.

When these people get together, they are not seeing Prince, Earl, Countess or any title but actually seeing and interacting with these people as real, live human beings.

I would think its pretty much a given that should Harry marry, Pippa and James Matthews would be a couple on the invite list.

Does anyone other than me think that either:
1. Pippa simply asked Harry if he wanted to come, and if he wanted a plus one. OR
2. Pippa asked Kate to ask Harry the same thing.

And then let the answer guide the choice? Because that's how I would have handled it if my Sister were the future Queen and I knew my brother in law, but we were not necessarily texting all the time. And of course if there were just public "issues" no matter what one did. JMO

One of the best observations I've seen in a long time. With Pippa and Kate being sisters, you have to know that they're in cahoots about anything wedding just as Pippa was right by Kate for her wedding. Its what sisters do.

Most likely the scenario you've presented is exactly what happened.

Well-said!

So much that has been said about the no ring, no bring is just the tabloids guessing, imo. I think Pippa would have handled things the way you described.

I have always admired how close the Middleton family seems to be. I would hope that Catherine, as Pippa's only sister, will be an attendant (bridesmaid? Matron-of-honor)? I would think since it's a private ceremony, family will be the top priority. I am sure it's gong to be a gorgeous event. I hope to see pictures... particularly of Pippa's dress, and The little Cambridges!

"With her wedding to hedge fund manager James Matthews less than a month away, Pippa Middleton is doing her utmost to ensure that the occasion is the intimate ‘family affair’ she set her heart on.
Aside from stipulating that guests at St Mark’s Church, Englefield, Berkshire, refrain from bringing along their latest squeezes — a ‘no ring, no bring’ policy, with a possible tactful exception for Prince Harry’s love, Meghan Markle — I hear Her Royal Hotness has also decided to maintain family tradition by entrusting the styling of her tresses to celebrity crimper Richard Ward."

I really hope people writing for the Daily Mail aren't sounding that stupid in real life .

Mostly, I think, people like Sebastian Shakespeare are very aware of how they sound in the articles they write and are doing it on purpose. They know that its the sensationalistic statements that draw people in to read what they write. If they did straight up journalism with the who, what, where, how and why facts, they'd probably be ignored.

They're on par with comedians that use a lot of four letter words for shock value.

Well, basically people like Sebastian and Ephraim Hardcastle are just purveyors of gossip so it really doesn't matter how stupid they are.

News is 90% internet now. These reporters keep their job by making their bosses money. Money made by clicks on articles. Sensationalized titles is one key to that. Since little information is released, they make do with any little hints and makeup the rest. Readers don't look to Shakespeare for news, they look to him for gossip. People who want to read about Pippa are looking for just that, gossip.

Pippa Middleton's wedding could be gatecrashed by locals | Daily Mail Online


Not a good idea!
This opens the door for the press, and they will probably take advantage. (Or even parishioners out to make $$ by selling the pictures).

How totally asinine that this is a printable story. Of course all the neighbors in and around the church that have known and seen the Middletons attending for years are going to, all of a sudden, turn into an angry mob and storm the church to get pictures to sell the Daily Fail.

I think an article like this has the ulterior motive of using the power of suggestion to get the end results that they want.

Disgusting.

So the same would have been true for any royal marriage, noble marriage, marriage of the famous in a COE Church. Parishioners could have attended, space allowing?

I'm pretty sure that with the smaller size of the church, every inch of available space is probably going to be used.

From what I've read here (I didn't click on the article as I tend to ignore the Daily Mail), all CoE weddings are deemed public and I supposed a parishioner could walk in but the way the article headline was worded, it sounded like a mob of irate locals would storm the barriers and demand to attend.

Security is going to be pretty tight anyways due to members of the BRF attending the wedding so little chance of sneaking in.

Well that is the same as here. If you want to see a couple married, you can always slip into the rear of church to watch as long as you are dressed decently and there is empty seats. The only time you can't is when your invitation states at bottom that "this must be presented before entering service" which is a nice way of saying that it is private and only invited will attend. Paid off duty police are stationed at doors and people have been turned away when they try to enter without invitation. Done quite often. It makes no difference who you are as once saw a relative of friend turned away from a service for not following. She never did that again.

Not a fan of the of the reception as described in the article, like a music festival w/ yurts, fish and chips stand and burger truck? What if it rains, does it rain in May in that area of England?
My niece had a lovely outdoor reception in a vineyard, but it was June in California where it never rains. There were hors de oeuvres and a sit down dinner followed by dancing - no Yurts, & no food stands or food trucks. Even so, there was so much space that people tended to cluster in their own cliques and not socialize very much.

I can't imagine security not being tight for this wedding; the immediate succession to the throne is attending: William (2) with future queen consort Kate, George (3), Charlotte (4) and Harry (5). Potential royal duchess Meghan is going to the reception. And the reception: they're kidding about the food served & theme, right? It sounds like a food truck park in the States. I get that Pippa wants a wedding that is different from Kate's but the Middletons are so keen to be seen as a posh family. There are Hollywood weddings that have been classier events. I'm kinda of wondering about the dress now; if it's going to be one of those strapless, tight, cleavage bearing disasters you see on "Say Yes to the Dress".

I know what you mean, I hate outdoor receptions!
(I always think there's bugs around; even if you can't see any, I think they are there!)

I much prefer a historic building or even a nice hotel.

I think the reception sounds like a ton of fun- a big, casual comfortable party with food people really enjoy eating and I'm sure with great music and dancing. I prefer that type of reception.
