The church of England changed its rules in 2002 allowing divorcees to remarry in the church. WA has been asked and confirmed the couple can marry there.

Charles was a whole other matter. He was marrying the woman who he was cheating with during his first marriage (grounds to have a priest refuse to marry them) and he is the future head of the church. The queen didn't attend his civil wedding, but she did attend his church blessing by the archbishop of Canterbury.

The future king, as well as two of his siblings are divorced, and he and Anne are remarried. No reason to believe the royal family would not accept her as a divorcee.
And the Queen did attend Ann's remarriage which was in a Scottish church I believe. She got remarried before the 92 rule came into affect. I think the Queen not attending Charles's civil ceremony was very specific to him and his situation. Based on her past actions she's obviously not opposed to attending the marriage of someone who's been divorced, or else she would have skipped Ann's. So basically, no it doesn't matter anymore. I'd say there is nothing stopping the Queen from attending a possible wedding between Meghan and Harry in a church.

Do you think Prince Harry will use the 1902 State Landau in his wedding?

If it's in good shape and not in need of repair/restoration then I believe it could be used. However some of those decisions regarding transportation will be made only when the venue is chosen.

A lot too will depend on security concerns. Sometimes I think any royal riding in an open carriage is too much like a sitting duck. I would love to see them doing it though. Horses and carriages are so much more romantic than cars.

Security concerns are VERY well taken care of, since open carriages are so often utilised by the BRF.
Open Landau's are very much the tradition [for the 'return leg' back from Church] so I'd expect one to be used, but as ever that would depend on the Wedding Day Weather !

Every year the Queen and every Senior member of the Royal Family ride down the Mall in an open carriage or horseback and then stands on a open balcony. Security hasn’t stopped them from doing it. They are also surrounded by almost all of the Household Division of the British Army when doing it.

Since no BRF member co-operates and has a winter wedding (with snow and red roses and all) my next best wish is that the spring wedding has a day that rains cats'n'dogs. That will create the 'cozy' I'm looking for. Ha! (Evil)

Depends on where the wedding will be and how big it will be i think. If it will be a big wedding in Westminster Abbey, like the wedding of his brother and Catherine, then It's possible. If they will have a "smaller" wedding in St George's chapel at Windsor Castle like uncle Edward and Sophie i don't think it will be used. Edward and Sophie did travel in a landau through the streets of Windsor to their reception but it was not the 1902 landau.

The Scottish State Coach would be a good option in case of bad weather as it would give a great view of the couple.

This thread is about Harry's future wedding. It's not about when Harry will get engaged, Meghan's schedule, or Harry and Meghan's relationship. Let's stay on topic.

If the Glass Coach is not used, then what coach or carriage or landau might be used to take Meghan to the church?

They might follow the plan used with the Cambridges and the Wessex weddings and not use carriages on the way to the church. They might opt to transport everyone (Cambridge wedding) and Wessex (bridal party) to the venue via car. (The royals walked to St. George's chapel for Edward and Sophie's wedding.) The Cambridge wedding saw the coaches/landaus used on the return trip and the Wessexes went through Windsor in a landau after their wedding

I think with the Cambridge wedding it made sense. We got a glimpse of Kate in the car but not a full view until she got out at the cathedral, which makes for more of an appearance. The carriage is about celebration, and IMO makes more sense after the wedding, for the crowds to cheer for the couple together.

And if I'm not mistaken, wasn't Eugenie baptized at the church at Sandringham? If so that would make for a nice connection...her baptism and wedding both at the same church.

As for Harry and Meghan....I'd love to see a Scottish winter wedding for them. Something unique and different. BUT, I don't really expect to see that happening. I'm thinking we're probably looking at a mid-late May or sometime in July wedding. St. George's at Windsor, maybe, but quite possibly London since it'll be the last major BRF wedding until the Cambridge kids are of an age to marry.
Isn't St Mary Magdalene a fairly small church though? How many guests could be invited?

It is very small, judging from pictures. It's the right size for a christening that's only attended by family (it's where Diana, Charlotte and Eugenie were christened) but a wedding there would be quite small by middle class standards, much less royal ones.

We lived near Sandringham when I was growing up and visited the church many times. It really is very small.

Guests have to be informed, many of whom are Royal and perform to a very strict schedule put in months ahead of time. The same with any overseas VIPs. The most important thing is security which is organised with military style precision and with reference to any particular current alarms.

Most Royal engagements last around six months. Not every day would be spent in organising things obviously, but a wedding dress and attendants' dresses, cake, floral arrangements etc aren't whipped up in a couple of days either.

The announcement of William and Kate's engagement was in November 2010 and the marriage was in April of the following year, so it's possible that Harry happens the same. If the rumors are confirmed the wedding will happen in April or may.

The discussion about Meghan's visa has been moved to the Harry and Meghan relationship thread.

I think any speculation that Harry, the son of the future king and the last main line Royal who will have a wedding for decades, will have a small and private wedding is not in keeping with the reality of his role.

I don't think it will really be the venue, but it certainly would be unconventional.
