Oh, I think there will be plenty for all of us to enjoy regarding this wedding, whether we are fans or not.

Do you think that we will hear "I, Henry Charles Albert David,...." or "I, Harry Charles Albert David" at the wedding?

Trendy 'bowl food'. Never took the queen for being trendy. Thought Charles may go a bit less formal for the evening dinner or the late night meal. The queen..... But then again though it is being served 'bowl style' it is said to be classic dishes and ingredients.
It was obvious from the start

Oh it is not about being a rabid fan Missy, it is about wishing this young couple well in life and lots of love and joy, this goes not just for Harry and Meghan but for all couples getting married, don't you agree?

We will almost certainly hear both their legal, formal names. So Henry and Rachel.

Absolutely no question about it. During the marriage ceremony when it comes to the vows, both full legal names will be used.

I wonder if Princess Margaret’s grandchildren are invited.

Who would Harry have to explain to? From what I gather, its *his* wedding and *his* invitation list. Obviously since the invitations have all gone out, that means that the invitation list is exactly how Harry and Meghan wish it to be.

Because it would be unequal treatment of people with the same degree of kinship to him, or the Queen for that matter, and who are members of the extended Royal Family.

My understanding is that this is not going to be a State Wedding, but a private wedding that has been agreed to be broadcasted. Therefore Harry and Meghan are perfectly entitled to invite whoever they please and they feel they are connected to. They are not under the obligations of William and Kate. There is no "raison d'état" to be followed here. It's the same as P. Eugenie's wedding in a few months. He is very far from the throne, so he can have a very personalized wedding, despite the fact that he is perceived a very prominent figure within the Royal Family.

Since the Queen and Charles are paying for this wedding I imagine they got to choose a few of the guests. The Queen's extended family would all be invited if she wanted them there.

Why would he need to explain why he didn’t invite his third cousins if he’s not close to them? I’d imagine if he’s close to them, they’d be invited. And don’t see why Margaret’s grandchildren wouldn’t be invited. My understanding is that Harry has spent a decent amount of time with them as they spend Christmas with the Queen at Sandringham as well.

The article posits that there's a snub because this time around the Queen's composer hasn't been asked to write something new for the ceremony, but in fact it seems as though the last time that happened was the Queen's own wedding.

That gives quite a different impression. It sounds as though it really wasn't as big a "snub" as it was made out to be.
