The Fail reports that Markle relatives insist that Tom Markle will escort his daughter down the aisle in spite of his leg injury. I'm not even bothering to link that, but I hope he does. On that big moment in his daughter's life he will be a source of support and a bond with her homeland and a dozen other things. And I hope he meets Harry within the next few months.

The only thing we can likely count on is myrtle. As it is tradition in the BRF to include it in bouquets. It has been since the time of Queen Victoria.
Peonies are her favorite.

The flower that first came to mind for me as far as the bridal bouquet goes is the Forget-Me-Not. That is a flower that has a special meaning for Harry as it was used in naming his charity in Lesotho "Sentebale" and was very much included in the display Harry helped create for the Chelsea Flower Show one year.

I doubt it. It’s a private family wedding.

No. It won't be able to accommodate a sitting president's security detail. All guests invited will be invited as personal guests of the couple and their families. The Obamas might be invites simply because they are friends with Harry and have worked with him on different things, but their security detail is far less now that he's not in office anymore.

This is not a State wedding so Heads of States will not be invited. If it were then the current POTUS would be on the guest list.

Its not a state occasion. Heads of state are invited to weddings when they are state events. William and Kate only had heads of commonwealth countries.

Obama and Trudeau if they are invited are not invited because they are or were heads of state/government . But because they are personal friends of the couple.

We know she likes, maybe loves, them. That based on an Instagram post from a bouquet she received. May be a stretch to call them her favorite. But they are a common bouquet flower so wouldn't be surprised if used.

Agree Osipi Would be a wonderful way to include his mother in a way. The charity was named that to honor the memory of the two mothers, both Diana and Seeiso's mother Mamahoto. Both women had a lot in common. Mamahoto was known as 'the mother of the nation' and did a lot of work helping vulnerable children. I think both mothers, Mamahoto died in 2003 (charity founded in 2006) would be proud of their sons and the work they do in their mothers' memories.

I truly hope Seeiso and his wife will be in attendance. Shocked if not.

Since it's not a state wedding, then it will not televised, nor will there be a carriage ride to BP or a kiss or the balcony I assume?

Darn!

It will be televised. There won't (most likely won't) be a kiss on the balcony since they are getting married at St George's.

Not being a state wedding have nothing to do with any of the other things. I believe the royal correspondents said that Jason Knauf confirmed it'll be televised at the BP briefing. There will be a carriage ride through Windsor. Nothing at BP or kiss on the balcony as it's not going to take place in London. However, we could get a kiss on the stairs outside of St. George. I'm hopeful seeing how naturally tactile they are.

Seeing as the wedding is at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, that alone cuts BP out of the picture. It most likely will be televised though. Edward and Sophie did not have a state wedding and it was televised.

I think you misunderstand what a state occasion is. Have you seen the weddings of William and Kate? Edward and Sophie? Andrew and Sarah? These were all televised. And none of them were state occasions. In the UK, the only weddings that are State occasions are those of the monarch or the heir. So the last state wedding was Prince Charles. Before that would have been the queen.

There will be no ride to Buckingham palace or kiss on the balcony. Why? Because they aren't getting married in London. They are getting married at Windsor, at St George's.

The reception is being held at Windsor Castle, not Buckingham Palace, so no carriage ride or balcony kiss. They said the ceremony will be televised.

A carriage ride might still feature at Windsor, there is a route they could follow and maybe that’ll be what they meant by “including the public”? But texankitcat is right, the ceremony will absolutely be televised but no balcony appearance or kiss as Windsor doesn’t have a balcony for the purpose.

Watching them in Nottingham, I'd be very surprised if they DIDN'T kiss publicly on their wedding day! And more than once, I'd wager.

It will be televised, like Edward and Sophie. I think the likelihood of it NOT being televised would be smaller than a split atom.

I want Meghan to have as much as possible. If the reception is at Windsor Castle is a carriage ride still possible?

Yes. Take a look at Edward and Sophie, and even photos of Autumn and Peter, who got married at St George's. There was a carriage ride involved with both.

Trudeau is not a head of state, he's a head of government. Canada's head of state is the Queen.

If the Obamas are invited it will be because of their personal friendship with Harry and Meghan. If the Trudeaus are invited, it likely is because Justin Trudeau is the head of one of HM's governments. I actually wouldn't expect the Trudeaus to be invited if the PMs and/or GGs of the other Realms are invited. Meghan having a personal friendship with Sophie Gregoire Trudeau won't make inviting one of the PMs of a Commonwealth realm, but not the rest.
