Well honestly, I've never really seen anything that suggests Meghan and Patrick hang out together outside of Suits. They don't seem to have that close of a relationship to me. Either way, can't really compare Patrick's wedding to Serena's. The latter is much more high profile and will likely have more security and control over paps. So if the tabloids are right about the wedding and if Meghan has indeed wrapped filming then I would say it is likely she will attend.

True enough, but if they are a couple at the level being suggested, attending the marriage of one's future wife's good friend would be expected. It would also be a major signal that this is the real deal. JMO of course. It just has to do with meshing worlds, and part of that is the world of friends. Meghan attended the wedding of one of Harry's friends. The reverse makes sense, else it's too one-sided. (If they are a couple of that magnitude/depth).

I would expect Meghan to attend Serena's wedding. I know she stayed away from Patrick's wedding (and I do believe they are friends), out of fear of overshadowing the wedding, etc. But let's be for real. This is Serena Williams. Nobody is overshadowing her! Not to mention I suspect Serena's wedding will have a number of really high level, high profile people, so the security will be tight. The rumor is the guests won't actually know the actual location in New Orleans until the day before.

It would be nice if Harry could attend. It's what couples do. But it probably depends on his schedule etc.

I am still expecting to hear an announcement in the December/January time range. May/June wedding. (Of course I will turn out to be totally wrong!)

I am sorry but if people are still looking for a 'signal this is the real deal' I don't think anything short of an engagement announcement is going to do it.

The reality is Harry has a busy schedule. And a trip mid week to a wedding in the US with RPOs in tow is not a simple inexpensive matter.

The statement from KP, the VF article, the Two weddings Meghan has attended with him. Their vacations together. Her staying at KP and it seems tea with the queen. These are all pretty clear signs.

There are some people who are still going to insist it's not real, as she's gliding up the aisle! LOL!

It's tiresome. Makes posting unpleasant. Why bother. I respect that there are many here who are convinced of their views. Okay. But other views should not then be hectored or laid open to 'laughing-out-loud' emojis. What is all that about?

Take care.

Well our current affair tv show tonight is all about Harry and Meghan. They are saying the wedding will be July.

I watched 'A Current Affair' tonight too. They had the usual suspects talking heads on there, Dickie Arbiter (no friend of Meghan's) Katie Nicholls, Camilla Tominay, etc. all very briefly.

A Hollywood reporter too, who stated that 'nobody' moves away from a TV show in the later seasons because it's so profitable, residuals presumably and therefore her leaving was significant!!

They're all convinced of an engagement, several of them almost frothing at the mouth at the prospect and Dickie repeated the old furphy that they will be barred from WA because of Meghan's divorce. They seemed to be going for a January engagement, July wedding date.

A lot of froth of course, but they showed a good deal of Meghan, modelling, on the red carpet, in different clothing I hadn't seen before, a scene from Suits, I enjoyed it very much!

I think those of us who have seen this romance move from stage to stage, progressing quietly but becoming very serious, are rather mystified that you appear to feel that it hasn't progressed to that level.

The signs, Harry's November statement, Meghan visiting London several times, closing The Tig down, more or less hiding away from publicity until the VF interview, the appearances of the couple separately and together at the Opening and Closing IG ceremonies and at the wheelchair competition for instance, and now Meghan leaving Suits, don't seem to hold any significance for you, or it is 'Harry seems to be keener about Meghan than she is about him' as you stated in a former post (I've seen absolutely no signs of that at all, btw).

Or again, earlier, on no evidence that I can see, that the couple aren't deeply in love and the relationship might be a fling or affair, nor is as serious as other people think it. Again, ive never been able to see how you could read those implications into it.

I did point out that it has to depend on Harry's schedule. If I had a wedding to go and my boyfriend is busy, I'd entirely understand and be happy to go by myself. Just because someone is attached, doesn't mean they have to go to every wedding together. And when that happens, it doesn't take away from the fact that they are serious. It's one wedding.

+1 If Meghan's filming schedule from Suits is clear, I'd expect her to attend Serena's wedding. Meghan and Patrick Adams are friends. They filmed a pilot together before Suits so they have extended history. And the cast as a whole are friendly. But Meghan has repeatedly said that Sarah Rafferty and Rick Hoffman are her closest friends on the show. Pre-Harry, Meghan probably attends Patrick's wedding but I think she's closer friends with Serena.

Would be great to see Prince Harry at the wedding. It reinforces the idea that they're equal partners...you travel for my good friend's wedding and I do the same for you. Especially since Meghan missed Serena's baby shower to appear at Harry's polo match. Still, if schedules don't allow it's not an indictment of their relationship.

I agree. It would be nice if Harry could come, but if he can't, I don't really think it's a big deal. Unless there is something else on her schedule, I don't see Meghan missing it.

An unpleasant but important question...

Assuming that Harry and Meghan become engaged and set a wedding date...

What would happen if there were to be a death in the BRF before the wedding? Would the wedding be postponed, or scaled back, or what?

I’m not very familiar with mourning customs in the U.K. in general, or the BRF in particular. Perhaps someone on the board has ideas to share. Thanks.

It's Serena's day but I'm afraid the paps and the media will not focus on the bride solely. The media will make it about Meghan, and Harry if he comes. The money shot would be about a future royal couple. It would be like the Pippa wedding coverage, if Meghan and Harry show up; how did they enjoy the evening. Last minute information about location will not fly with the RPOs. I'm not sure if Serena would be ok with focus going to someone else.

I think it would depend upon the timing. If the death was within say a week or so of the wedding, the wedding would undoubtably be postponed. If the wedding was several months later it wouldn't affect it.

There are a few big differences between Patrick’s wedding and Serena’s (excluding any issues of closeness). Patrick got married last year, not too long after Meghan’s relationship became public knowledge. She was still figuring out how to approach things - she hadn’t even stopped using social media at the time. Patrick’s wedding also looks fairly... open. It was an outdoor wedding that involved camping and a trip to the beach, and a lot of celebrities.

Serena’s wedding is probably no less extravagant, but is likely a bit less bohemian, and therefore a bit more secure. Plus Meghan’s likely more comfortable with the public interest now (“comfortable” for a lack of a better word).

This is a wedding where the bride is Serena Williams and the guests will be the likes of Beyonce. Despite what royal watchers think, Meghan is small potatoes compared to other guests and really won’t be the prime paparazzi target. Now, if Harry comes or if they announce an engagement before then it would be a different story.
And comparing Serena’s fame to Pippa

I love Meghan and I love Harry, but I just don't see anyone upstaging Serena Williams. And because Serena Williams is Serena Williams, the security is going to be tight. There will be so many A listers there. Like Oprah/Beyonce level. I'm not saying Meghan and Harry wouldn't draw attention, or even Meghan just on her own, but so will a lot of other people. We may never even see Meghan enter the venue. She could go in through a back way or something. We may not even know who came to the wedding until it's over. Shoot, the wedding is supposedly tomorrow and the first anyone is hearing about it was yesterday.
