Depends on if Eugenie and/or Sarah remained close to her. But her simply being Harry’s mother would have nothing to do with it.

Presumably they haven't been invited.
However, one royal expert has commented that QMII in any circumstances was unlikely to attend anyway. Partly because Harry is some way away from the throne, and partly because of possible BRF considerations of her recently having lost her husband.
As for other DRF members attending. That would have been a possibility, but again Harry is pretty far away from the throne and there is no history of him socializing with other members of the DRF. So there are no ties of personal friendship either.
There’s no doubt something to this. QMII attended William and Catherine’s wedding but he’s second in line to the throne.

The thing is that with Harry's wedding, how close he is to the throne has no bearing on the invitations. William's was a semi-state wedding and Harry's isn't. As has been stated, no dignitaries of any kind make up the guest list but primarily its close family and friends of the couple along with people that know Harry through his charities and patronages.

I'm sure that the Queen would have been delighted to have the occasion to spend time with Queen Margrethe but Harry's wedding is not the occasion to do it.

Lovely to see the prayer, and am looking forward to the music!

The prayer for Meghan and Harry in marriage and to all who are married is beautifully worded, encouraging and inclusive. It's a lovely gesture by the Church of England.

I would think its very much a given that there will be myrtle in Meghan's bouquet. Its been a tradition of royal brides for quite a while now. I also expect her bouquet to be laid on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Westminster Abbey in days after the wedding. Some things you can set your clocks by.

Leave it to the daily Fail to need an expert to report something anyone knows. Myrtle has been in every royal wedding bouquet since the wedding of Queen Victoria. The bush it came from, actually grew out of a stem of myrtle in Victoria's wedding bouquet.

Besides it being a regurgitated story that has already been reported at least once since the proposal. Running out of news to print.

Yes, probably they, and I, are looking forward to something of a bit of substance, the composition of the bridal party for example, instrument of Consent, the Coat of Arms, an appearance of them together on a date, the florist, cake, anything!

Maybe someone from the Greek royal family will be invited as Harry seems to know them socially.

We already have the florist and cake details. We wont see photos of the actual until the wedding. The instrument of consent isn't going to draw in readers except the biggest royal fans. The coat of arms may. But the only things they really have left, that will get in big readers, are bridal party and maybe a date.

In that last KP statement issued last week it promised to provide some details of ongoing progress ref the cake and flowers/decorations.

And I know the Instument of Consent is not of general interest. Nevertheless articles about it and about Kate's Coat of Arms appeared in the media in the weeks before the wedding. And there are now only nine days to go before Harry/Meghan's nuptials.

For instance, details of Kate's Coat of Arms, released to media ten days before the 2011 wedding.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-13127145

Plus on the 17/18th the main focus of interest would surely be on Doria and Meghan's movements before the wedding, as also promised in that statement.

Yes I'm sure that at some point we'll see a photo of it at WA.


Here is Kate's bouquet. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/...88_634x421.jpg

What we know of so far is that Tom Sr. has left Mexico and made it into California and stayed overnight at a motel. What I'm thinking is, and I think it would be great, that perhaps Tom Sr. and Doria will fly to the UK together. That would really be great to see Meghan's parents as a united front.

GMA saying Doria is already in London and staying at KP.

Thomas Snr is en route.

I assume her close friends and their kids (bridal party) are on their way too.

I imagine the friends with kids will likely travel this weekend if their kids are in the bridal party. If not, they'd probably get there mid-week. Once the announcement about the bridesmaids are made, they won't get a moment's peace if they aren't in UK already. But they are unlikely to travel before the weekend since they kids are in school. They'll miss a week as is.

Omid said on GMA that Jessica arrives on Monday. I would guess that probably the case for most of them. Get there early in the week and have plenty time to do everything.
