Will the Junior Royals travel in vans to Prince Henry and Meghan's wedding?
They used mini buses for guests at Edward & Sophie's wedding, so seems likely.

Yup, I think we’ll see those mini buses taking the extended family to and back at the wedding.

They really come in handy. My little sister is getting married this year, and I wish we had the funds to take the family to the wedding, wedding reception and back to the hotels.

I don't understand - at the Cambridges wedding minibuses were used to take guests from BP to Westminster Abbey - agree its a great idea.

But this wedding is taking place inside the Castle - why would minibuses be needed?
Are some guests gathering elsewhere outside of the Castle where they are collected and bused in?

THe Royals use the minibuses to transport the extended family to the weddings. They did so for Wessex’s, Wales and Cambridge weddings. It’s easier transport from the Castle to the Chapel and back, than to have everyone arrive by individual car.

Why don't they walk down from the Castle? it just seems odd. I can remember guests walking down for the Wales' blessing in St George's (the image of Stephen Fry looms large).

Just seems odd.

EDIT: Maybe the Wessexes was because of the long frocks!

And heels (and hats usually.) Plus even though it is a short walk for most, some have health issues precluding a walk of even that distance. And they wouldn't walk if if rains, so might as well use the mini buses that will be there anyway.

Some walk down, but itís better when using the minibuses. Limits the cars thatís needed.

Also I would think there will be guests not staying at the main castle. Perhaps the mini buses will be used for some who may stay in London, or to limit how much transport is needed from the hotels and such to the chapel. I know the castle has many guest rooms, but I doubt the queen is hosting every one.

But yes it is quite a walk for ones who are older, or if the weather is bad.

That makes sense - thank you. I wasn't expecting HMQ to put everyone up for the weekend but transport/hotels might be an issue.

I now imagine a fleet of coaches with outriders on the M4 bound for the Castle.

Distance, dresses, heels, age...

Many reasons. I work many events were golf carts take people from point A to B for those very reasons. Only time you see people is when they hit the press area. Though no idea about this set up. But I can see people being bussed close enough to have a short walk.

I’m looking forward to seeing the flowers. I hope they do something different like yellow, purple or orange.

I think if we go by Meghan's known taste ..it will be very clean colors/styles of flowers...maybe varying shades of cream/white. With perhaps some of her favorite flowers in the mix ...wasn't it pansy's?

Peonies.

I hope we don't see the same old white/cream like Kate. She likes color, just pops of it, flowers would be a great place to use them. Saw in her decorating style she used neutrals, and accessorized with pop of color, like flowers.

There are some lovely ones. Some of the ones, using the blush and lavender peonies, a subtle touch of color without being cream/ white. Still allow the dress to be focus, but still have a nice add of color.

What is Meghan's favorite color? Though looking at those bouquets the vivid red would be dramatic. Interesting if she joins a vivid red (say) with strong greenery. That would be the dramatic splash for the venue, which would complement a sleek and simple dress. I think the dramatic statement for the venue could come not with the dress but with the flowers, jewels, hair and tiara.

IF true, it's a sad day for collectors of Royal Memorabilia.. the 'keeping qualities' of [Brandy soused] Fruitcake are legendary, and slices of HMQ's Wedding cake STILL crop up for sale periodically.
A Sponge cake will be rotten and mouldy in about three weeks..

They might have fruitcake for the christening of their first child. I have to say that lemon elderflower sounds delicious and the sponge will be light as a feather to eat.
