Interesting compromise between traditional and feminist elements.

Nice updates. All the details seem so well thought out, personal and lovely. I LOVE that Doria will ride in the car with Meghan. I like how she didn't chose one Maid of Honour, instead all her closest friends are will be helping her as the wedding nears.

As for Meghan's friends. Can we stop with the mis-information. Some of her closest friends are from uni days, it's been said multiple times here, and if she doesn't want to pick one of her friends, she doesn't have to, it's her wedding. Her friends are no doubt absolutely fine with this. If other brides pick a maid of honour, good for them, their right, its their wedding. Meghan doesn't have to, though.

My guess would be that someone from the designer's team would do that because Doria is going to have to get to her seat fairly quickly, but I suppose we'll find out.

Edited to add: And actually, that's an interesting question, because that means she would be seated after the Queen which I thought is a protocol no-no. I wonder how all this is going to work?

But where will Meghan be staying?
If she and Harry are apart the night before, then it can't be Nott Cott.

I assumed she'd stay at Windsor, but it says she and her mother will be driven to Windsor. Is she moving into a hotel, like the Middletons did?

Meghan and Doria will be staying somewhere near. The release specifically said the press will get to see them exit and drive to the chapel. It also said they will go down the long walk. So I imagine she will be fairly close by.

With no matron of honour I wonder who’ll be looking after the children. The page boys and bridesmaids are likely going to need someone to corral them.

And no doubt it's arranged.

We hired a babysitter for our wedding, so I imagine something similar would be done for the kiddoes.

It is possible that one or more of the bridesmaids will be a little older like we saw with Lady Diana Spencer's bridal party. If not then there will be an adult discreetly corralling the bridal party if necessary.

I know it is Prince Andrew's home now, but might mother and daughter be staying at Royal Lodge Windsor?

Yes it is and IMO it is an excellent compromise.

Possibly Lady Louise on 'shepherdess' duty, for the 'gaggle' ?

I think it is actually very smart not to have a maid of honor, so as not to subject that person to the same invasion of privacy that Meghan's other loved ones have been victim to. I also hope this makes it clear that Tom Sr is a decent man who has been loyal to his daughter and not shared any information with his estranged kids.

None of the press is asking about Jr.s letter now. The Markle public extortion plan blew up on Tom Jr, Sam and the other complaining Markles like an ACME dynamite kit. If they were invited it would have been announced.

Pippa is perfect example of why not to have an adult maid of honour IMO. I understand why Kate did it, who wouldn't want their sister to stand up with them on their most important day. But I don't think they thought of the interest that it caused.

Yes, stick with the children....

I'm pleased to see they've included Diana's sister Lady Jane Fellowes.

I just had a vision of Louise with a decorated shepard's crook as she "herds" the strays. Perhaps one of the corgis can be there to keep the flock together.

According to the press release, Doria will be dropped off at the castle. That's where Meghan will pick up her pageboys and bridesmaids, before continuing on to the church. The release says members of the royal family will start making their way to the church at this time, so it's safe to say Doria will be in the church before the Queen arrives.

I remember the designer was on hand during W&K's wedding. You can see her fixing Kate's train right before she walked down the aisle, so I imagine the designer of Meghan's dress will be the one helping her with any last minute fixes.
