In the UK the civil aspect of a marriage is carried out by a registrar.

In a catholic marriage, a registrar needs to be present, as well as the priest ( terrible family mess when the registrar was omitted).


Vicars and other members of the CoE are registrars (authorised personnel).

Really !! I never knew that I thought that was only other European countries. Here you just need a priest or minister etc or civil celebrant

Here while a registrar doesn't need to be present, as in Luxemborg where they have a civil and a religious wedding, a register is required. Really just means a stop at the court house to pick up a marriage license. It is usually signed as part of the ceremony, but it is witnessed at the court house by a register.

I completely agree with you. Further, it is all so unnecessary.

Should the couple in question choose to marry, I am reasonablysure they will marry at St George's, Windsor.

Goodness yes! She will be becoming a Princess of the UK, it will a very official occasion!

For all we know the proposal could have already taken place, just the timing of it's announcement left to come. They don't necessarily go hand in hand.

William and Kate got engaged three or four weeks before their own announcement while on holiday in Kenya. The only thing prompting "something ws up" was they arrived together at a friend's wedding during that period whereas before that they would arrive separately.

This is a big year for the family, with the Queen's major milestones along of course with the 20th anniversary of the death of Diana, which the boys are making sure is well documented and her life celebrated.

Harry may rather let the year pass or let all the major events pass with it before he and Meghan make any announcement.

Interesting comments by Prince Albert of Monaco, especially in that his mother was an American actress who married into European royalty.

In addition to his twins with wife, Princess Charlene, Albert also has two out-of-wedlock older children (one of whom is 'bi-racial').

Of course, by this point, if they are intent upon having a life together, there's not much more that Harry & Meghan can do except, 'Keep calm and carry on.'

Yes; it was interesting indeed that Albert commented about the relationship. I wonder why, as he doesn't seem have a particular closeness with any members of the BRF. Of course he's entitled to speak about the relationship but I just thought it was a bit odd. Maybe that's just me though.

There may be a relationship between them we aren't aware of...never know what they are up to behind the scenes.

^^ Well, for one thing, I'm sure Prince Albert was asked to comment (apparently in connection with the fact that his own mother, Princess Grace, was an American actress who married into European royalty).

And yes, Prince Albert could very well have more than a casual acquaintance with the British royals.

It was just a simple wonder I had, that's all.

And since we don't know their relationships behind the scenes I was all the more curious.

Y'know, I think that if we took all the two cents worth of opinions on Harry and Meghan's relationship that have been expressed here and every other place in cyberspace and in the media, we could probably pool enough two cents from them all to finance the biggest, grandest and most glorious wedding every to be seen in our lifetime.

Just my own two cents worth.

Not really odd of him to comment on the relationship. It appears he doesn’t know much when he says "they seem to have a good relationship" and just giving good advice. Someone who's knows what goes on behind closed doors wouldn't give them advice through people magazine. At least he wasn't asked about the engagement rumors.

Harry and Meghan wouldn't overshadow the 70th anniversary but rather enhance it. November 20th would continue on into posterity as a romantic day of the year.
I completely agree with this sentiment. It would be a lovely shared date.

I was delightfully surprised that Prince Albert- Sovereign Prince of Monaco- a head of state should publicly comment about Prince Harry's relationship.

Yes folks the engagement is coming! 😉

I wouldn't take the fact that Albert spoke about them indicates an engagement is coming.

I think if their relationship continues on it's current path, yes they will get married...time will tell.

I think Albert was being sympathetic to H&M because of the media instrusion have faced.

I assume Prince Albert was asked for a comment, not that he volunteered one. I thought he did a pretty good job of pivoting very quickly away from Harry and Meghan to instead talk about his own family. He only said about a sentence and a half of very generic stuff about H&M, really. He gave much more energy to talking about his mother and reinforcing the idea that his own wife's difficulty during their engagement wasn't her trying to run away (that was such a ridiculous case of rumor mill on overdrive!) but was instead her having a hard time adjusting to being under the press microscope.

why WAS he commenting? Surely he must have experience of turning away a press question..
