QVC or HSN had replicas of Kate's wedding earrings as well. Then there are dolls and plates. I imagine we'll see some of those for Harry and Meghan.

I like the idea of confetti made of rice paper being used at the wedding.

The Mirror is suggesting that William is cutting out early from the wedding so he can attend the FA Final. I know William is president of the organization, but to miss any part of Harry's wedding to give out a trophy is just wrong. They could find someone else to give the prize; or William can pre-record a message wishing both teams good luck.

Harry and Meghan must be working hard behind the scenes on their wedding plans. They’ve managed to keep the lowest of lowest profiles since their engagement.

I think we all can pretty much agree that this couple isn't a party hardy kind of engaged couple out enjoying the night life in the city. I kind of like the idea that this couple are a couple of homebodies that don't seem to need outside stimulation to enhance their relationship.

Why would anyone believe what the media says or suggest unless William actually told them that is what he was planning to do? To even think that William would cut short his brother's wedding to hand out an award..... I seriously doubt this has even crossed William's mind....football vs his brother's wedding......

Methinks its the Daily Mirror having to print at least something about this supposed conflict of interest that has arisen with the wedding and the FA finals being on the same day. Its all a tempest in a teacup.

Meghan has not been seen since the outing on Dec 1st and Harry's only been seen doing official engagements and I think one shot of him leaving the gym.

They are masters at keeping a low profile. Kudos to them!

Osipi I think that they are willing/able to do that speaks to their relationship and bodes very well for their future.

I think we also forget that Meghan just moved to a new country. I think they are likely keeping low as she adjusts to things especially with these high profile family gathering starting this week. I am sure she a nervous wreck.

Also they have managed to stay hidden most their relationship. They value their privacy.

Either gullible or trying to stir the pot.

It seems like that, yes.

William isn't even needed for the whole game. Just to hand out the award. He can easily do that if he wants to. I highly doubt he and Kate were going to party into the wee hours of the night anyways. He can do all of his best man stuff and make his speech at the evening party and then take a chopper over to the game and hand out this award that's so important to everyone apparently.

They've pretty much kept the lowest of lowest profile for their whole relationship. We didn't know they saw each other at least every two weeks, and we certainly didn't know they ran off to Africa together in 2016.

Oh I can just see the Daily Fail headlines with this scenario. "William Uses TAXPAYER Funds to Helicopter to FA Final Game Leaving Kate Home With The Kids and DITCHING his Brother on His Wedding Day!!". big, BIG letters taking up the entire front page even.

My guess is that he'll prerecord the speech of congratulations ahead of time, enjoy all the events of the wedding and retire with Kate and his children at a reasonable hour. Baby #3 will still be a newborn and require Mama around quite a bit.

Yeah I agree that Kate and William wouldn't have stayed into wee hours regardless. The would have 3 children under the age of 5. They will be plenty busy.

I don't expect William will be at the FA Cup. I don't think anyone expects him too either.

What a busy day that will be though.

I'm just saying with all this dramatic uproar, that's an option. They do take helicopter for engagements at times. People will always find reasons to nitpick at things.

So very true. Its the reason why the Queen pays out of the Sovereign Grant to lease these helicopters that the royals use. That's their purpose. It *is* possible that is what William would do but IMO, I don't think its probable.

She's got a lot of work to do... guest lists, her gown, a rehearsal dinner gown/dress, a reception gown, shoes, accessories, florals for the wedding, royal lessons, protocol lessons, prep for her and Harry's tour of the UK, seeing family and friends in the US/Toronto before she becomes royal... it's a good thing she's already having her stuff moved for her...

Plus it's the holidays too.

It's in my nature to be a planner, so I would be freaking out right about now if I was Meghan. I consider 6 months to be almost no time at all to plan something this huge.

I actually just hyperventilated on Meghan's behalf.

Yes - she's got help, etc., but still - it's stressful. Plus she's moving at the same time, learning a whole new country... wow.

She *does* have a lot on her plate right now after seeing you list what is probably the majority of them. One thing I think is probably true too is that with staying in with Harry at Nott Cott and being a "foodie", both of them have very tasty and nutritious full plates to keep them hale and hearty and healthy throughout these hectic times.

I kind to like to think too that Meghan is enjoying every minute of it and has hit the ground running getting all those ducks in a row and relaxing with Harry over a glass of wine at night going over, together, all the plans and how they're shaping up. It might be a stressful time, to be sure, but I'd like to think its a pleasant kind of stressful and more of an adventure.

Then again, I'm the most disorganized person I know and planning with a mess of lists of "to do" things and I never saw eye to eye much.

Given all the stress from moving to a new country and stress from the media, I'm surprised at how calm and grounded she seems to be. I would be a total mess. Harry also seems to be alot calmer
