What milestone event in Harry's life or in Amelia Windsor's life have they all attended? They see each other at Trooping and Christmas Lunch, but there are so many people there for so little time.

I am betting we will see Kate and Jessica M. helping with the wedding party.

Not their personal milestone events--the events within the BRF.

Didn't Meghan refer to the Litt girls as her "Fairy Goddaughters"??

So perhaps she isn't officially their godmother; it's just more or less an honorary title. It isn't likely she would be godmother to both girls anyway.

Being a godparent in the US does not require one to be baptized or even of any particular religious domination or spiritual background. You simply agree to do it and show up at the christening ceremony. Sometimes it's not even as formal as that. The parents ask and you agree and that's that. I think it makes more sense to assume that Meghan knows what her relationship is to those kids than it does to try to dissect it based on what you think you know about her life.

Love the wedding party, so many kids! Having many children at your wedding makes it a more joyful event, lot's cuteness overload! Can't wait to watch the wedding on my TV.

BTW, is the wedding going to be broadcasted inside the chapel? I was wondering if we get to see only outside or we get to see their vows live...

I love the wedding party. Lots of little children should make for a joyous day. I actually think that Jessica and Benita will take the role of haranguing the kids without being official bridesmaids.

I'm sure there will be someone corralling the children at the beginning, and even getting them started down the aisle.

But it's a very long aisle when you are 2 or 3 years old, and when you walk into a space filled with 600 strangers. I'm not too concerned about the beginning, but, as I said in an earlier post, without a responsible older bridesmaid or page to keep the little ones moving along, and reassure any nerves, I foresee the possibility of tears, wandering off, stopping dead in the middle of the church, or fingers up noses or in mouths.

And actually, for me, all those things would be a feature, not a bug, since the unpredictability is exactly what makes little children in a wedding so adorable.

I watched the Lifetime movie and the stuff about The Crown now makes even less sense as Florence's (god daughter to Harry) Uncle plays Martin Charteris

From what I know, there will be live coverage from inside St. George's Chapel of the entire ceremony. We'll see it all.

That's my understanding too...we will see everything inside during the wedding.

Oh, we get to see the whole shindig. There would be no other way.

I love that there will be so many little children! I imagine we will see the two Litt girls with 2 smaller girls each to hold hands with then George paired with Jasper and the two Mulroney boys paired up.

Yes, it could be really fun, or---not. Personally, I would never count on a 2 year old (prime tantrum age) to behave. If I were the child's mother, I would be so anxious, and then embarrassed. However, not my wedding, so I don't get a vote! They will be awfully cute together.

This is a personal observation, and obviously not necessarily reflective of the 'wider' mood in the UK [and beyond], but amongst my friends, family, colleagues and acquaintance, and amongst my Social media 'friends', there has been a marked 'change of tone' of late.

Previously 'those that cared' or were interested in the Wedding [a majority], were excited and full of anticipation, and 'happy' for the couple..
Now they are weary and WARY, wanting it 'to be over with'...There is a palpable sense of unease and uncertainty, even [amongst some] of foreboding...
None of this is the fault of of the couple themselves or the BRF, and less to do with the 'minor' Markles [most have NO idea who Samantha even is]. It is the antics of Markle Sr who is responsible for this obvious pall.
I'm old enough to remember quite a few BRF weddings, and, although [in retrospect] all was not 'comme il faut', in some cases, I have never registered any level of disquiet prior [even] to the ceremony itself... Today, there IS.

It is very sad, that one individual [and SO close to a principal party] as contrived to 'take the shine off' what ought to be a joyous occasion...

This is my general feeling also. I was used to Sam's shenanigans, but this whole issue with her father has left a sour taste in my mouth. I think that Harry and Meghan have a huge battle on their hands in dealing with her family in the future. Unfortunately, I don't think they will go away until Tom Sr. passes. I hate saying that, but it's the way I feel about the situation right now.

I think the feelings of weariness and unease are quite understandable - I have felt it myself these last few days.

I can only describe my own feelings on the matter and will try...

In spite of month and months of reading and hearing all the rubbish coming from Samantha and Tom Jr, I don't think anyone could have envisaged what's been happening the last week or so, how it all seems to have come to head just days before the wedding, confusing and conflicting reports about Tom Jr, Samantha's involvement and possible influence on her father, his state of health, will he or won't he be at the wedding etc etc

It gives me the feeling of just wanting to get to the Wedding Day without any further trouble - lets just get to Saturday and all will be well. I'm afraid until Saturday comes, we have to sit it out, wait and hope Tom Sr is OK in his health and ride the storm until it's over.

Let's also remember that Meghan has conducted herself throughout all this with great dignity, hasn't said anything, done anything, kept her distance from the problem and in my mind all this stuff has nothing whatsoever to do with her. I say let the Markles get on with it and concentrate on what we're actually interest in: the royal family and the monarchy.

I don't know if they have released that or not?
