Why should there be pictures? They're not trying to prove anything to anyone, and actually aren't trying to get the attention on themselves.

Agree. If they are at the party, they're probably thrilled that they so far outmaneuvered the photogs . They aren't show ponies, nobody in their right mind wants to be tabloid fodder.

From what we've seen of Meghan I don't think she would deliberately try to upstage the wedding--but the press does what is good for clicks or sales and would make a big deal out of nothing. A photo would really set things off. Much better that she keeps a low profile.

Perhaps they (H & M) were somewhat annoyed by the unrelenting paparazzi at the previous wedding they attended together and didn't want to go through (or put the bride and groom through) such an experience.

Harry and Meghan's discretion and that of the wholly admirable Middleton 'clan' has ensured that what is an essentially private day of celebration for the bridal couple and their family and friends has remained EXACTLY that, unmarred by the kind of feeding frenzy beloved of the 'Daily Fail', and [some] Forum members here..

Miss Markle was there. She looked great. She looks happy, very happy.

That's not a new picture of Miss. Markle. That's a picture of her at Harry's charity polo event.

"But as one friend tells PEOPLE, “He is very serious about her,” and she is spending time with him in London just a week after he flew to Toronto to see her following his two-week tour of the Caribbean.

Insiders say there is nothing to stop her being in the U.K. around the holidays and staying at one of the other royal homes, including nearby Anmer Hall — Will and Kate’s country home where she could join them for a shooting party and other festive fun.
"

Why Christmas with the Queen Is a 'Tall Order' for Meghan Markle
Yep, I remember this story and nowhere does it claim Meghan would be there. Quoting insiders saying that there is nothing stopping her from being there isn't tantamount to making a false claim.

Like I said, I would trust People over most other taloids or magazines. I believe their reporters actually do care to check for accuracy before posting. If I remember correctly, it was People Mag that clarified the story about Meghan wearing an H ring when all the other tabloids were running with the opposite.

Except "the nothing stopping her" part was a false claim. The Cambridges weren't even going to be at Anmer, that in itself would have "stopped her" from staying at Anmer.

The tabloids were spreading the Meghan and Harry were spending the holidays together rumor, People Magazine got excited (and wanted clicks) so they jumped on the bandwagon. I won't give them credit just cause they attribute their baloney to "inside sources" and coyly whip up the masses.

Yeah, I think you're reaching. Once again, they weren't saying Meghan (or The Cambridges) would actually be at Anmer Hall..merely that it was a possibility. That's not the same as making a false claim.

There's a photo appeared on Twitter of Harry driving back to the manor in his car wearing something dark, probabably a tux and Meghan seated beside him. Can't see anything except her face. Harry's smiling. It has also appeared on a certain anti Meghan blog beginning with Jersey. I don't know who the photographer is or whether it will appear in the press.

And I think you are excusing. Some might think tabloids regurgitating each others fabrications and putting their own little spin on things is fine. But I won't justify it.

For example, Back in September 2015, the Sun falsely claimed James Middleton and Donna Air split. People Magazine jumped on the bandwagon - as you can see in this tweet https://twitter.com/people/status/647193821890150400.

Then the couple issued a statement saying they never split. People magazine quickly deleted their original article (though they left the twitter link up, oopsie ). Then they wrote a new article talking about how the couple never split and they took some digs at some of the media that had reported the story, conveniently ignoring their own now deleted article.

They swim in the gutter while pretending to be above the other rags. If it walks like a tabloid, and talks like a tabloid..

I'm a little tired of this topic but if you want to continue this discussion it should probably be in the royals and the media thread, as I think our debating the merits of People Magazine has become off topic in this thread.

Personally, I'm on team "she was invited but decided not to go". Primarily because according to Rebecca English, all of her sources *but* the ones connected Meghan were saying she'd be at the ceremony, but the ones connected to Meghan were saying reception only.

Further, I strongly suspect she opted to skip the ceremony because of the attention thing. Not in an "I don't want to draw attention from the bride" way but more in an "I don't want to sit in a single seat for an hour and have people stare at me" way.

Lainey from ETalk did a podcast earlier this month with one of her contributors/friends, who mentioned that she had a friend who'd been at Soho House in Toronto with Meghan, and people were openly gawking at her. Like, not eating their food, just staring at her the whole time. Lainey Gossip Sasha Answers: Dinner with Meghan Markle & Is "No Ring, No Bring" Actually a Thing?

This is notable for two reasons: one, Toronto has a justified reputuation for being chill about celebrities; Meghan's talked before about how easy it is to live there because people leave her alone even when they recognize her. And two: at Soho House, you're expected to be cool about the other people there.

So if in the most "don't look at me" place she goes (which she's talked about as a haven) she's still getting stared at and people aren't eating their food, I can't imagine her existence is very comfortable at the moment. TBH, from the reports coming out of Toronto, it really doesn't sound like she's enjoying the attention.

Looks like the Sun got the money shot. Curious about more pictures possibly coming out.

As for being stared at, any woman dating a senior British royal is going to get this treatment. If Harry were 10th in line to the throne his love life would not get a lot of ink and clicks. What ups the curiosity ante is Meghan is an American, a divorcee, a woman of color, and a practitioner of the Jewish faith according to some reports. To have a woman with this kind of background possibly marrying into the BRF has some significance in history making and putting on a new image of the British monarchy. For that reason the stares are going to be more intense. If there were an engagement announcement the media would go into hyper-drive with questions about a woman with
a diverse heritage and her potential impact.

Ha. You brought it up and were wrong. But I'm more than willing to drop the discussion. Not interested in further debate.

I don't think she was ever invited to the ceremony for the simple fact that it makes no sense to sent out an invitation to a small wedding at a small venue to a stranger.
