It was something totally off the cuff outside of Clarence House where William and Harry spent the night before the wedding. Here is a short clip of it.



It will probably be a bit harder for Harry to do something like this in Windsor. If Meghan is staying at Windsor Castle and leaving from there for the wedding, most likely Harry will be staying elsewhere (Royal Lodge perhaps?) and I believe it would be hard for a crowd to gather outside the Lodge.

This video reminds me that I have a totally random picture of a colleague's brother with Prince William at a pub somewhere... because he looks the same... so affable.

Sadly, I don't think we are going to see the guests arrive or depart, except for the royal family waving them off from the Chapel steps. I always remember HM taking off after one of the small children made a break for it. I can't remember whose wedding it was or who the child was but it was such a very ordinary family thing I chuckled,
We saw guests arrive at Edward & Sophie's wedding. They arrived in mini-buses.

Yes, expect the mini-buses to transport the extended members of the royal family to the wedding and back to the castle.

It is. I've seen it. You have to troll through some footage on youtube to get to it. HM was quick on the draw there.

An aside about that wedding -- I hated the giant bear and the tin foil mess on the back of the carriage that said "phone home". If it was my wedding, I would have removed the bear and the tin foil. Neither was humorous or touching, just off-putting. To prepare for this wedding for months, with all of the attendant irritations and protocol issues, here you're finally off to your honeymoon, and you have to look at that f_____g bear on your romantic carriage ride.

Actually, I read in an interview with Andrew a few years back that he still has that bear! It's standing guard in his office in Buckingham Palace.

It is quite beautiful. I am looking forward to watching it but wow there is not a lot of space. Very tight road.

Myself I can easily see where Andrew and Fergi would of loved the bear.

Does anyone know if Mr Markle will stay at Windsor Castle as a guest during the wedding week. As per Mary Donaldson and her family were invited to stay at a palace with drivers and everything else that was needed in Denmark.

This will be of concern. Meghan's parents will need protection, yet they will probably like to get out and around. I hope it works out to be a positive experience for them and not a tabloid press horror.

I'm sure that Tom and Doria will receive every consideration needed to make their stay for their daughter's wedding an enjoyable one. I wouldn't be one bit surprised if HM invites both of them to stay as her guests in Windsor Castle.

I know Sophie and her parents stayed at Royal lodge the night before the wedding, with the Queen Mum. I would think both Meghan's parents will be invited to stay at the castle with their daughter if that is where she is staying.

Finally finding the video of Sophie leaving WC and going down The Long Drive makes me feel better - I think people will be lining the road and it will be packed with people to watch Meghan on the way to St. George's Chapel.


Actually Sophie did not come from the Castle but from the Royal Lodge which is at the other side ot Windsor Great Park. She and her Family spend the night before the wedding there. Don't think this is an Option for Meghan as it is now the Home of Prince Andrew. Perhaps she and her Family could stay at Frogmore.

Yes if either of the couple stayed there, I would think it Harry who is close to the Yorks. Meghan would likely stay at the main castle, and her parents. Autumn stayed at the castle the night before her wedding.

Camilla went out onto The Mall the evening before the Cambridge wedding as well, a few hours before William.

It would bve very odd if Harry left his whole family at the castle and went off to stay with a cousin. More likely, either Meghan and family will be accomodated elsewhere, or in a different part of the castle.

It may be wrong as two different papers are showing a longer route.

Maybe they worked at WC and weren't general public?
Sophie drove down part of the Long Walk, but I think it was at the other end. Royal Lodge is just south of the south end of it. Her car then turned and went through the town and entered the castle at the other end.

I'm seeing more reporting of the longer route. I shaded in a rough approximation of the open space along the route, which shows why they would want to do the additional portion. The southern hook of it will be a slightly unusual setting for this kind of thing as it's very leafy and suburban in character.
