I will say this, after Tom Jr. 's apology letter, if I was Meghan I "may" invite him but disinvite dad and still walk down the aisle alone or with Harry.
I've also always been of the opinion that Meghan 's nieces and nephews should be invited.
That "apology" letter was not an apology letter. How dare you suggest that [...] her brother attend the wedding after all he has put Meghan through!!! He hates her!!!!!

At least Senior screwed up "royally," but he has not spoken out against his daughter or said deplorable things like Junior and Sam have. He loves his daughter and does not despise her like the other two. Once he recovers he will hopefully get the verbal slamming from Meghan and Doria that he deserves but he is NOT on the level of Sam and Junior.

Ashleigh and Christopher should attend. Particularly Ashleigh, who is a lawyer and the inspiration for Rachel Zane. Obvious "Duh!" choice to me. Christopher too. Neither of them have said a peep to the press and they have lived their lives outside of Samantha's influence. Maybe Noel, because she has spoken out against her mother and defended Meghan, but she has a bad rep as a nascent extremist so I don't know about that one.

Uncle who is an Orthodox Bishop-----does she even know him?

Uncle who got her a job at the Argentinian Embassy---all well and good, but he cancelled that out by selling out his brother's location to the paps. Cain and Abel stuff, there. If I was Meghan, no way in heck I would invite him.

The Dooleys? Seem to be basically good people who just want to cash in on the publicity. Nothing against Meghan and have spoken highly of her. They have also all but disowned Junior. I personally see nothing wrong with pot farming but the conscious royals may disagree. OTOH, Most of them have not seen her in years. And also, some controversy MAY arise from the fact that one of the brothers has a HUSBAND. I'll leave that alone. Just saying.

She could at least invite some of the other Raglands and Johnsons. Impeccable behavior from them.

Just commenting on the wedding guests. Who's left? LOL.

Do you think that all the flower girls will walk ahead of the page boys?

To tell you the truth I don't know much about the family and can't put a name to faces or people. I think all 3 of Samantha's kids should go, maybe a few of Tom Jr.'s as well as the uncle who got her the embassy job; and as I said earlier (maybe in another thread) I think Tom Jr. can come; he seems repentant (seems being the operative word) and he may be able to be reasoned with. Again I have not followed this much because I don't want to give these people any more attention, on the other hand that first letter was really horrible but maybe he can truly apologize to Meghan and explain himself.

Was the uncle who got her the Embassy job the same as the uncle who sold her dad's location in Mexico to the paparazzi?

There might possibly be some family members on the Ragland side. Most of them didn't speak to the press, and even the one who did only had nice things to say about her.

Hmmm then I can see why he wasn't invited.

On another thought, I wonder if there will be attendants who aren't bridesmaids who will help corral the little ones. I cannot imagine a 2 year old making it down the aisle without having a meltdown.

Since you say don't know who these people are or what they have done, perhaps some reading would be helpful before suggesting they deserve to be invited.

According to Jessica's instagram, they were identified as fraternal at birth, but she had them tested again last July and the results came back as identical. So press outlets may be relying on old stories that refer to Ben and Jessica's "fraternal twins".

Well Ashleigh and Christopher are 2 of Samantha's kids.

A few of Tom's kids?? He has two sons. Those are the same two sons who are currently in London with their mother, and who are selling their story to who ever will pay. And trying to be royal corespondents for the wedding.

Her Uncle that got her the job? He is the one who sold out his own brother.

You think Tom Jr who has continuously attacked his sister, even sending letters telling Harry not to marry her, should be invited But not her father who until recently has been quiet. And though the pictures weren't good, never sold out his daughter or spoke bad of her

Doria has several some half siblings and a stepmother. Her side of the family has been quiet and we don't know if any of them have been invited.

Yes indeed. Would you invite him after knowing that? (No matter him pulling strings to give you a job twenty years ago?)

Uncle who is a Bishop-------does she even know him?

Tom Jr.? seriously? He hates her and has shown it time and again. [...] He has viciously attacked her in the press. The "apology" letter was just a pathetic excuse, last-minute desperate effort to get back in her graces.

Ashleigh and Christopher----Definitely. Not a peep to the press and she is close to them. Ashleigh is the inspiration for Rachel Zane. Noel----has defended Meghan and has all but disowned her Mother---but is sort of a loose cannon in regards to her her life---has ties to Alt right groups so maybe not.

The Dooleys? So they are pot farmers. And? Nothing illegal about that in the States. The BRF may disapprove, though. Also, they have not seen her in years. Plus one of the brothers has a husband. Can the BRF look pas that? Don't know. Their main fault seem to be to try to cash in on the publicity. Aside from they have been highly complimentary to Meghan.

The Raglands and Johnsons should come.

Sir Elton John and David Furnish attended William and Catherines wedding as a couple (and looked quite stylish walking into the Abby together,) and more than likely theyll attend Harry and Meghans wedding together as well, so not much controversy from that angle. Regarding the pot farming, Catherines Uncle was caught up in some drug scandal (and spoke a few times to the press to boot,) Tara Palmer-? had a history of drug issues yet was invited to W&Cs wedding. If the Dooleys were close to Meghan they would have been invited, Im sure.
The Queen is paying for this wedding & the large reception for all afterwards, thus if she felt it important that her entire extended Royal family be invited they would have been.
We must remember that Harry and Meghan will have been allocated X number of invitations, Charles X number and the Queen X number - if it were important to the Queen to have more extended family present the number attending could have been as high as 800, they settled on 600, presumably after compiling the respective lists of those to be invited. Well know on Sat. who made the cut :)

Do you believe that the flower girls will carry baskets that have some of the flowers that are the same as in the bridal bouquet?
At this point I am not sure what to believe about this wedding anymore.....yet plastic fake flowers really throws me and I am a strong flower girl, real flowers only please!

I read earlier on Twitter that the flowers won't be going into the Church until Friday. So not sure the flowers seen today were for their ceremony.

Thank you Pranter, I sure hope the flowers for the wedding are *real* not fake flowers for I would be so disappointed if they were fake......

Question here everyone...
What is the big issue with who goes to the wedding? After all it is Harry's and Meghan's wedding or is it someone else's......so what if some members are not invited to the wedding or not, that is up to the bride and groom on how they view their own relationship with some of them....just reading the drama of the siblings and their dad is stressful enough without who gets to go and who stays home or else they go out drinking beer somewhere........

I recall a story from after William's wedding where he said courtiers gave him a list of people that must be invited to his wedding. He went to the Queen and asked what to do, and her response was, "Bin the list." She told him to invite those that he and Kate wanted to invite.

Every wedding, royal or not, will probably have this sort of guest drama. I have quite of few stories of my own from the weddings I've attended.
