I've edited and deleted a number of off-topic comments. As long as you don't get political, it's fine to discuss whether the Obamas or Trump (or any government official) will attend the wedding.

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.

Sorry, head of government.

But no, if Meghan chose to invite Sophie and her husband to attend, it would not be because they are heads of the government. It would simply be as personal friends of the bride. Unless either of the couple has a personal relationship with any other PM that I am not aware of, there would be no requirement for them to be invited to the wedding. This is a private family wedding. They get to invite who they choose.

It's like arguing you cant invite Obama without inviting Bush and Clinton. Note when William and Kate married they caused a stir when neither Brown or Blair were invited to the wedding. They were the only former PMs not invited to the wedding. Why? Because the others were not invited because of their position. They were invited because they were members of the garter, and all members of the garter were invited.

Invitations to the Obamas and Trudeaus would be extended Inspite of who they were, not because of who they are.

I think I've missed something: Mr Markle has a leg injury?

Apparently, according to his family, the Fail and other tabs he does, but it 'won't prevent him escorting his daughter down the aisle'. I think the problem is he's become reclusive.

So......an older junior bridesmaid like Lady Louise? Do Meghan's American or Canadian close friends have daughters of an age that would work? Have to admit I would love to see Louise in the wedding party.
Meghan is godmother to Benita Litt's 2 daughters who are both under 5 .
And the there is Jessica Mulroney's 3 kids who are 7 and 4 (her sons are twins)

I wonder if we will see any kids from Meghan's mother's side of the family. We don't know as much about Meghan's relationship with any on that side.

Can't tell if she isn't close to any of them or if they are just keeping mum.

I would love to have banana bread cake at any wedding - what a lovely surprise... it's so moist and yummy.

But I still don't get how people knew the banana pic Meghan posted on instagram was such a "tell". Can someone clue me in? Do bananas mean something royal? I've been confused for a year, lol.

No, it’s not a tell. It’s just that was posted when they were outed. Right before the racist and sexist stuff got out of control. Harry was in Toronto at that time too, so people just have generally read a lot into it.

Will Meghan have Georgie Boy Daffodils in the bridal bouquet? The daffodils were named in honor of Prince Harry's nephew, Prince George.

Is there a reason why Meghan's bridal bouquet would contain an homage to George rather than reflect her tastes?

Plus aren't daffodils really hard to keep fresh? They wilt at the slightest puff of hot air.

As much as the couple adores George, that's a bit much given what has to be in there and the bride's own taste. I don't think Pippa even had it in her bouquet. If she goes with peonies, which are her favorite, she won't have much room because these tend to be bigger flowers and the bouquet for royals brides just aren't that big.

Darn!
It will be televised. William and Kate's wedding was not a State wedding.

If someone was to ask me what the perfect food is, I'd say the banana. I have yet to meet anyone that does not love a good banana and if that is the choice for a wedding cake, I'm in 100% agreement on it.

When thinking back to that banana post made, what seems so very long ago now, it seems like this couple is not only very affectionate towards one another but they are also very sentimental and can attach meaning to even little things and make them special. I think we're going to be seeing a lot of that with this wedding.

Ummm not crazy about bananas by themselves. Banana bread I do like as long as it's made correctly!

If it is true...and ,,honestly, I very much doubt it, it looks like they are making an effort to be original. I think it's silly...It's one of the things people will remember forever!!

Oh well, too bad, it's their wedding. If the guests don't like it, don't do it for their own weddings. If they want to be silly, then they should be as silly as they want. It's their day.

I have read that Harry is very fond of bananas, (read that back in his army days) and that therefore the banana post on Meghan's social media was an in-joke of theirs.

I quite like banana cake myself, but I do think their wedding cake will be a traditional fruit one.

I’ve been to probably over 40 weddings in my life and I have no idea what kind of cake we had at them. There is only one exception, the couple had a cake with mixed fresh fruit and it was so hard to cut and kept falling apart that my table didn’t get any. It was ten years ago and we still talk about ''that wedding cake’’. So, as long as the cake is tasty and there is a lot of it they’ll be fine.
