I don't expect to see Sarah at any of the day's events.

I just can’t wait for the festivities to kick off. These couple of months haven’t been good for me at all, so I know the wedding celebrations will bring a little cheer to me.

Sorry to hear that. I hope it gets better soon

11 more days to go! Soon, we will be in single digits.

A little cheer is always welcome. Who knows, perhaps a certain Duchess may even end up with an RFO soon.

One can only hope.

I might not be able to watch the wedding live and probably will have to record everything. My family is going through a very tough time and we might be very busy on the wedding day.

I would think that the evening party would basically be one for close friends and family that are young enough to party hardy through the night. I don't expect either Charles or Camilla to stay for those festivities past the dinner they're hosting. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Sarah in the chapel but most definitely, she will not be seated with the royal family. My guess is that she will be seated on the side with the Spencer relatives.

Hope things look up for you and yours Dman. Tough times are never easy at all and a blessing is that the family all pulls together during difficulties. Sometimes in order to see a rainbow, you have to stand a little rain.

It’s one thing when it Eugenie’s wedding, but this was just unnecessary and caused more trouble than it’s probably worth from a publicity standpoint. Sarah is not exactly the most discreet person. You add that to the awkward situation of where she’d be seated (with the royal family or away from her daughters with the other guests?), it’s just unnecessary issues to add to the planning. Given that she won’t be the only person Harry has had some contacts with not to be invited, I don’t see why she’d have to be invited just because Harry skied wth the York family years ago with his ex-girlfriend. And really, who wants to go to their ex-husband’s relative’s wedding?
Harry might have a far more personal relationship with aunt Sarah other than 'going on a ski holiday years ago'. I'd say it completely depends on Harry's relationship with Sarah. If they know each other well because of Harry's close relationship with his cousins, it makes sense for her to be invited - good prep for the October wedding where she will have center stage as mother of the bride.

If Harry on the other hand doesn't have that kind of a relationship with her, it's totally fine if they decide not to invite her (but if the duchess of Kent is invited who only in name is married to the duke, why not also invite Sarah, duchess of York, who seems to have a far closer relationship to her former husband and his family).

^^^ Based on apparent closeness of relationship it would make sense to invite Sarah but I believe she is persona non grata to the Duke of Edinburgh and so make, efforts are made to ensure she is not around for any major royal events.

Maybe the whole purpose of inviting Sarah to H&M's wedding is to get Philip use to her again before Eugenie's wedding ;-)

If she does, I’d have her sign a Non Disclosure!

So, what will the duke do in October? Refuse to attend his granddaughter's wedding because her mother is coming? This might be a perfect exercise leading up to the other royal wedding this year as this time Sarah can attend low key

If Harry is so close to Fergie, he would have fought for her to be invited to all the festivities. I hope she is not using the wedding to send a message she is back in the royal fold. Not being invited to the private party negates that.

I think we would have heard if she had not been invited to his wedding and reception. We know that Harry loves his Aunt regardless probably because she provided a feminine family member to fuss over him a bit when he was on holiday. Hugs and such are important.

Why would we have heard? And from whom?

I think the absolute vitriol that Philip feels for Sarah is vastly overblown. As it may be the case that Philip has a severe dislike for her, I would think that with the DoE being a sane, rational gentleman with manners (outside of his proverbial gaffes), I'm sure its not a situation where he would react out of control with being in the same room as Sarah, Duchess of York.

Should Sarah be in attendance at Harry and Meghan's wedding, I'd bet my last gyro that she wouldn't be seated anywhere in proximity to Philip. They'd basically just be in the same room with each other. This has happened before with both Philip and Sarah being at the Ascot races if my memory serves me right.

If people that couldn't stand each other were a reason to invite or not invite someone to a wedding, most guest list would be a whole lot shorter.

Why does she need to be invited to all festivities (and we don't know whether she is invited at all and if so, to which part)? It is assumed that probably Charles and Camilla will not stay for most of the private party. I don't expect Anne and Timothy to be there (at all or all the time) and there are about 400 others that are invited to the day events but not the evening event. It is expected that especially the younger generation will stay for the evening party, so I truly don't see why one specific person should only be invited for all or not at all while that isn't true for 2/3rds of the invitees.

And we know for sure that it is not up to Sarah herself to decide whether she is invited or not. That would be up to the couple with vetting from the queen and prince of Wales.
