Or Meghan turning to Harry and saying "give me your moms wedding dress so I can rip a part out and sew it into mine".

On another note I recently ran across a headline that said Harry officially asked William to be best man.
Yes it was confirmed a few days ago. William and Harry even joked about it at their event the other day.

KP posted a few tweets about it, like this

The surprise was that no mention was made of the rest of the wedding party.

And we can see how well that 'good luck' charm idea worked out for Diana!

I agree with someone else: some of this is a bit yucky.

This is Meghan's day, the bride's day. Not the deceased mother-in-law's day. Jiminies!

Meghan having diamonds from Diana in her ring seems a touch enough

Now if she included something from her own mother (which seems common enough) that would be her choice. But don't know if we would see that either.

i am curious as to whether any reports have circulated as to who will attend the wedding from other RFs. is it likely there will be several foreign royals, or just a handful of minor royals?

There are no invitations going out to foreign royals or heads of state at all. If there is any royal at the wedding, it will be because of a close, personal friendship with the couple. Only one I can think of is Prince Seeiso and his wife from Lesotho. Possibly some of the Greek royals attending as family. That's about it.

I'm giving Ms. Doria and Mr. Markle, the benefit of the doubt. We don't know what their financial status is. Though they don't have to, they more than likely want to help pay for her dress to contribute something to the wedding as her parents.

And who are any of use to assume or suggest that Meghan is paying for her mother's dress and her father's suit?

I think that the speculation of who is paying for what when it comes to this wedding is just that. Speculation. Its none of our business how much anything costs. Even if Meghan wore a dress that she paid a pittance for at a resale shop because she liked it, that's her business and no one else's.

It has been confirmed, at the time the invitations went out, that only personal guests were being invited. Not even local politicians like the PM.

There will be no invitations to 'royals' because that is what you do.

The only given would be Seeiso and his wife who we know have been invited.

Besides them Franz Albrecht and his wife I'd not be surprised if they were. Harry hunts with Franz for years, and attended their wedding.

Maybe a few Greeks and some of the German relatives.

Any money that Meaghan or her parents may put toward wedding expenses is money that they earned, not money that comes from generations of inherited wealth, so good for them if they have it to spend!

The wedding custom that I hate, loathe, and despise is that horrible one where the groom and bride mash cake into each other's faces!
I cringe when I see that.

Thankfully, it seems to be dying out.
(Not that Harry and Meghan would ever do that anyway!)

Doria and Tom Sr may chip in and get wedding jewelry for Meghan as a present. I can see Tiffany's, classic and simple and an American jeweler to represent her roots. Harry Winston and Neil Lane could be considered, but they are jewelers to the stars. Tacori is an American company known for bridal jewelry and it's based out of California. These companies may want the publicity.

Royal photographers are getting a little upset over the arrangements of Harry and Meghan’s wedding


The anniversary reminds me of all the photographers whose work we're lucky enough to license! @RegalEyes @JWhatling @royalfocus1 @PAImages @ArthurJEdwards @ChrisJack_Getty @markacuthbert @stephenlock2 @iimages1 @AlanJDavid @ijonesphoto @goffphotos Hope I've not left too many out!

Via @What Kate wore Twitter


Wow! Was that really 7 years ago?? We get to do it again in a couple of weeks time, just a different bride & groom. ; )

Via Mark Stewart Twitter


Not sure we will get the chance to take a similar shot. It's all a bit of a stitch up at the moment

Via Royal Focus Twitter


A real shame that photos will be so few and limited, all publications will look the same. Still can’t quite believe that such a major royal wedding has so few media covering for the benefit of everybody, bar the few members of the public allowed in.

This venue is smaller and more intimate. It was always going to be different to William and Kate's wedding.

I'm not seeing the issue. Sounds like they are being placed in assigned areas. Windsor Castle is smaller. It makes sense as the space is limited. I'm sure he will get his shot but honestly that post seems like he just whining cause he doesn't like his position.

I am glad that this wedding will be different. It will be as close to what Harry and Meghan want on their personal day as possible. I am sure that they have gone over plans with the Queen and Prince Charles. It will be proper by the law but of their personal liking. At lease I hope they do it their way and not bullied by anyone else. I am sure Meghan's mother and father have been told and approved. Let them invite who they want and eliminate those that they don't want no matter who they are. It is their day. People seem to forget that bit.

Yeah, not sure I understand what he is saying to be honest...that they won't be allowed inside? Were they for Will and Kate's? I am sure they will have an assigned area for pool reporter, just like they did in 2011

It seems he is complaining all the reporters/photographers are going to be in one small area. That they will all have the same angle, and same photos.

He is trying to pass it off as the 'public is going to suffer' because the public will not get multiple angles of the wedding.

Really seems like the photographer is grumbling because there wont be so much competition to 'sell the best photos'.

Its a smaller venue. There are limitations to be expected. Plain and simple. The public will get to see plenty.

No heís upset because only one outlet will be allowed to take the photos of Harry and Meghan leaving the church.
