If Philip shows up Sarah won't be there.

I honestly don’t think Philip will be up to attending. The fact they mentioned it at all leads me to believe it’ll be a day of decision.

Hip replacement is a big deal at 96

I think Philip clearly wants to attend but he might not be well enough. It is understandable. I hope he doesn't miss it because I know he is very close to Harry and it would disappoint them both.

The Queen Regnant is who matters here and she will, be there

I wish Phillip well whatever happens and he wouldn’t let his grandson down on purpose .

I think all the family matters. My point is KP is preparing us for the fact Prince Philip may not be well enough to attend.

Meghan's parents are expected to meet the Duke of Edinburgh; so he is at least well enough to receive visitors. I would hope that means they can also find a way to include him in the church service on the wedding day.

I could see Sarah attending, simply because she has a relationship with Harry. Unlike William and Kate, Harry has been seen vacationing and skiing with the whole York family.

That said, if Sarah is invited, I doubt it will have anything to do with whether or not the DoE will be in attendance; a decision on whether or not Sarah is invited would have been made awhile ago - before the invites went out. A decision on the DoE’s attendance seems like it’s going to be made day of, based on his ability to attend.

Wonder if there are more health Issues. If he really wanted to be there he could use an wheelchair like Margaret did at Prince Edward's wedding.

I'm having trouble visualizing how the 'picking up of the bridesmaids/pageboys' would work - they'll all drive together w/ the bride to the chapel?
Would the bride be herding the very young ones into the chapel? Perhaps there will be no very young ones at all and thus no Charlotte or even George in the wedding party ?
If, as was suggested up thread, Louise is a Jr. bridesmaid in charge of herding children, could Meghan and her mom be staying at Bagshot w/ the Wessexes the night before? I suppose staying w/ godfather Andrew makes more sense. Is there a hotel in Windsor that Meghan may have reserved for herself and her mother? Where is her father to stay? The same place?
So many questions for me.
Nonetheless, I am looking forward to learning the answers in 2 weeks, wait 2 weeks, whoa that's getting very close!

Would he though? We all know how proud Philip is and he would never want to be seen as weak. That is why I think they are waiting. If he can use his cane he might do it but a wheelchair? Nope.

I find the first engagement very interesting being so soon after the wedding. Are there any big known events they might attend in that period happening?

The anniversary of the Manchester terror attacks I believe would be near.

I agree. I think health reasons given his age and recent operations would be the only reasons why he wouldn't attend. It all depends on how he feels on the day.

The Manchester bombing attack anniversary is May 22. They have already announced a few memorials including a concert. My guess is that the royal family will attend the main one. And since it is the following week, it makes sense Harry and Meghan join. They will leave for their honeymoon afterwards.

That would make sense yes.

If he uses wheelchair, he’ll need pillows to elevate to be higher than his knees. I know (had both replaced) he probably isn’t able to “sit” in regular seat. Imagine a high seat at a bar where your legs are dangling—that’s what it like. Also, the agony of getting into a car, where again, you need to be elevated (lifting you foot an inch feels like 500 pounds, even after a few months). I kid you not.
