This whole thing was weird. Who announces something over the weekend? Particularly a holiday weekend?

I don't understand why it's 'weird'. Are there 'rules' regarding announcements about a wedding? Curious.

In general, announcements like this aren't done on a weekend as a lot of staff aren't in the office.

I see. But I think a post indicated that the information was 'out there' on Friday. Looks like it was the decision of 'whoever' to publish the information to a broader audience on the weekend.

P.S. If Meghan was sending out the information, or instructing or giving the okay for the information to be sent out, I doubt she would be savvy regarding weekends, holidays and what all, especially given it was 'just' about the flowers. They must all be working like beavers on this wedding me supposes.

I wasn't suggesting Meghan is sending out the information or even instructing them on when to send it out. This particular announcement is pretty routine part of the wedding process. However, it's something the KP Communications office should've been aware of. It's just so odd how this was handled. I can't remember last time they issued a release, that's not breaking news, on the weekend.

It coincided with the Sunday newspapers, tweets can be scheduled to be released on a certain day which means no staff was forced to work.

They all sound lovely and the combination of tree branches too will look amazing!
It is splendid to know that Philippa Craddock will be using the peony in St. George's Chapel.

With so many wedding details being announced in advance, will some people loose interest in the wedding because so much has been disclosed?

Some details won't be announced until the wedding (Meghan's dress & Henry's title, for example). And in my mind there is no comparison between DISCUSSING and actually SEEING.

I agree. We may know that peonies and roses and foxgloves will be used, but how? How will it all look?

Yes. And based on a response to Emily Nash's first tweet about it, the information was embargoed until 12:01am on Sunday.

@scobie Latest via @GMA: Sources tell me that Meghan Markle quietly jetted out of London last Thursday to spend quality time (and talk wedding plans!) with her mother Doria in Los Angeles ahead of her #RoyalWedding to Harry next month.

@scobie The trip wasn’t the last chance for Meghan to see Doria before the big day. Sources say there are plans in place to fly mom over to London “well before [May 19] so she can be part of all the fun and festivities... and see that dress!”

@scobie Speaking of the gown, an insider confirms that top secret fittings continue to take place at an undisclosed London location and Kensington Palace. Best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney, who helped pick the designer, will actually be flying in for one of those later this month.


Glad she was able to get away and spend time with her mother. I remember some suggesting that she might wanted to be with her for Easter and seems that is exactly what she did. They also said on GMA that Harry had his stag-do as well.

Glad she is involving her mother as much as possible....Much fun to be had pre-wedding and on the day itself

In this video it was declared that all the flowers in Meghan's bridal bouquet may not be white.

Yes, those computerised fake-voiced YouTube videos are always negative and agenda-ridden. There’s loads of them about making quite outlandish claims about other members of the Royal Family. I just give them a wide berth ....Not worth promoting them on reputable forums. We should be getting more news on Meghan’s wedding plans soon

We’ve had some information about the bridal party, I just wonder who else could possibly be on the list Hopefully we won’t have to wait long to find out

The 36-year-old actor opened up to ET’s Keltie Knight at the This Bar Saves Lives event in Los Angeles on Thursday about his former Suits co-star, Meghan Markle, who is preparing for her highly anticipated royal wedding to Prince Harry on May 19.

Adams, who was joined by his actress wife, Troian Bellisario, noted that Markle “doesn’t need any advice” in the marriage department -- and he couldn’t give her any tips even if he wanted to!

“I don’t even have her telephone number anymore!” Adams admitted.

Patrick J Adams is trolling the media. The reference to a wedding gift of a Vitamix blender is a dead giveaway that totally went over Entertainment Tonight's head. I personally find it hilarious and I'm glad to see Meghan's friends supporting her even in this low-key way.
