That's what I was thinking. I think Prince Harry is doing the full-court-press with her (getting her invited to the wedding is part of that, I think). I wish him well, and rather hope she will agree. She will make a gorgeous bride, both because she is very agreeable to look at and because she has such style herself. We shall see.

You can barely see anything.

I see nice makeup and sparkling earrings on Meghan and a nice smile on Prince Harry. It is not much---but it is enough😊

Sparkling earrings and a smile are a sign they are next

Gabriela and Eugenie dates were the same. Well maybe one of them will be next. Honestly Gabriela seems most likely to be next.

Um...no. Me saying "they're next" is clearly my wish for the couple.😎

Picture is no big deal. Meghan is in shadow and there is a glare that makes her barely visible.

So now that there's a pic, is it enough proof that she was there? Or is the picture too grainy to be trusted? I like that this couple are doing things their way, and being as low key as possible too. Imo both go for great lengths to see each other, appreciate each other, and respect each other. I love it.

Maybe Harry prevailed upon the Yorks and had Meghan stay at Royal Lodge. Princess Eugenie was, after all, a guest at the wedding, and Harry has always been on good terms with them. The Yorks might have even hosted Harry and Meghan at Chalet Helora.

Harry may have picked up Meghan to drive her to the church grounds reception.
I think the fact that the villagers were allowed way in front of the media to watch the arrival of the guests and the bride really says how well the Middleton's are accepted as part of the village. On the same theme, both William and Harry managed to disappear into the guests with ease which shows how relaxed both are around the Middleton clan.

I'm a bit dubious about the report that had Harry had to do a 100 mile round trip to KP and back to pick up Meghan. Two things come to mind;

1. Leaving her safely at the Middleton's home, as previously reported was perfectly sensible and also makes me think she went to the reception because by then the family, friends and media had all seen the bride in all her beauty and her presence at the Reception wouldn't detract from the bridal couple.

2. It would be rude of Harry to skip the Wedding Reception having been invited to the wedding. Moreover, the reception would be the perfect opportunity to meet more of Harry's friends. It's a bit hard to meet new people and remember their faces, let alone their names in a crowded evening bash with the music rocking and the lights strobing.

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.

Here, here. A fine post.

I think the Royals themselves are less concerned over her ethnicity and divorce and more concerned about her current family and discord within that makes its way into the press. The 1990's press wars are a lesson hard learned for the Windsors.

The discord is pretty much her much older half sister who seems to be jealous of Meghan's life and seeks to make herself important. Not really much of a problem IMO.

I don't think she was in London but I doubt she was at Middleton. For one he was seen driving her. If she was already at Middleton manor where would he be seen driving her? The night party was there.

Middleton manor would be crazy with caterers and staff. Not to mention she has never met the family till now. A bit uncomfortable for her.

More likely they have a hotel room. They aren't likely to have driven back to London after the party. And Middleton manor would be full. She was likely where ever they are staying tonight.

I agree, this seems more practical.

May I ask why does it really matter where she was?

Why does it matter what Kate wore? Or what food was served? People are interested. If you aren't, by all means don't venture a guess.

Curiosity and the disbelief in the stories printed in the press.����
