Except that Harry and Meghan recently attended a wedding in which Meghan knew neither of the parties marrying. I think there is more to this one. Not sure exactly what but all the conflicting media reports has me wondering...

To be frank though, I'm still trying to figure out why Harry attended the wedding. He doesn't seems particularly close to Middletons and with Meghan in town but not attending, it just seems especially weird for him to be there. I mean, Meghan travels to London to spend time with Harry but stays behind while he attends a wedding and (reportedly) waits for him to pick her up for a reception to said wedding she didn't attend? I'm sorry but NO. I don't think I could go for that...I'd just feel uncomfortable/weird about it all. But perhaps Meghan is just fine with it. If she's willing to deal with these kind of weird situations, then good for her, I guess.

The constraint was likely the size of the church so not everyone invited could bring a guest to the church but could bring a guest to one or both of the other events and from there it was Meghan's choice to make the trip knowing she would not be able to attend all of the wedding events.

The no ring no bring policy was something made up by the media. There were some couples who arrived at the ceremony who are neither engaged or married, e.g. Princess Eugenie & bf, Lady Gabriella Windsor & bf, James Middleton & gf. So it would be very odd if the 5th in line to the throne was not given a plus one.

My theory is that both Meghan & Harry decided it was best if she didn't show up to the ceremony where the media would be because of the hysteria surrounding the couple. Anytime they are spotted at a public event it will only crank up engagement talks as we saw with the Polo. The endless speculation must be driving them nuts & putting unnecessary pressure on them. Anyone whose been in a relationship knows how frustrating it can be when relatives & friends are constantly speculating about the status of your relationship. So imagine what it's like for H&M with the worlds attention on them.

I for one am glad that Meghan was a no show at the ceremony purely to give the couple some breathing space. Engagement talks began for this couple when they had only been together for a matter of months. I too have been guilty of it but I take it all back! Let us just enjoy watching them grow as a couple

Well I can imagine that she perhaps didn't want to make a fuss about it or decline to see Harry because she wasn't invited to the wedding. But again, that doesn't explain why Harry was even there or why he would be ok with it all. From what we know or what has been reported, I'm just baffled by a lot of things here.

Well at least Harry will have Meghan with him at the receptions. She'll get to meet the Middleton's and all the other guest. I'm happy for him. It's better having someone to share your life with.

I still think that the reason Meghan wasn't at the wedding ceremony itself was because she was a late addition. At the time of engagement, there was no one in Harry's life that could have been considered as being a good candidate for his +1. The church only held so many people and adding Meghan to the festivities called for only attending the after festivities where there was room to squeeze her in with Harry.

All the other +1s that attended the ceremony were together when the engagement was announced.

At least that's my take on it.

I can believe that people like Jack, Eugenie's boyfriend and Donna, James's girlfriend got their own invitations and were not necessarily "plus ones".

This makes sense as well.

All of you listening to the media should learn your lesson. None of the media outlets had a direct link to Pippa or James to know what was going on. They made up crap and you believed it.

This is a lot of pressure on a very new relationship. I'd say don't assume anything. One never knows even with those one knows, how much more with this relationship, which is pretty much a total unknown.

I think Meghan and Harry thought it was just not worth the extra chaos her attendance would create. Meghan wasn't in the picture when the engagement was announced and lot has happened since.

It was a lovely wedding and Harry and Meghan have the party to get all cosy and close.

Your theory seems the most plausible to me.

Meghan traveled to Jamaica to attend a wedding with Harry with even less notice, and that was a small church also.

Any wedding planner will tell you that there are always changes to the guest list, some guests drop out & new ones get added. H&M have been together for nearly a year so I wouldn't classify this as such a late addition.

Harry is too important of a guest not to have been offered a plus one. Also inviting Harry's gf also increases the chances that in the event H&M were to get married, the Middleton's in return would also get an invitation. Society weddings are all very calculated!

I think that is the best explanation too!
Social media is all abuzz with posts, memes, and videos about Meghan's absence at the ceremony.
This one is too funny:

So it really was best for Meghan to not be there after all!

Obviously then Meghan didn't want the attention on her when it was someone else's day.

Which means that a future Harry/Meghan wedding will be Middleton free?? Lets hope!

Seriously, who knows exactly why she wasn't there. I'm inclined to believe though that it isn't as simple as her not being invited or even that she didn't want to take attention away from the bride. There's quite a bit that just isn't adding up to me.

Occams Razor.

She wasn't invited, if she came it would of been as a Plus One. No need to read anything into it...the most obvious is usually right.
