Princess Margaret married Earl Snowdon on 6:th May in 1960 at Westminster Abbey. So It's not impossible with a May-wedding.

Don't think it will be on the 6:th though as it falls on a Sunday in 2018.

Does anyone know what kind of visa Meghan needs to be able to marry in the UK and if there is a time frame for the marriage attached to it ?

The reception will take place at Buckingham Palace.
principessa, These are nice titles. What is the history of the title of Earl of Menteith?

She probably has a fiancée visa, which requires her to marry within 6 months.

We’re likely looking at a May wedding based on that - March is Lent, April is when the baby’s due/the Cambridge’s anniversary, and the Queen’s birthday, and June is past the 6 month point.

That would be my guess too. Its also possible that if, for some reason, the wedding doesn't occur within the six month time frame, they can apply for an extension. I don't see them having a problem getting one if they should need one.

I'm not sure how useful the visa regulations are in figuring this out. A general feature of the strict immigration laws in western countries is that they often become very flexible when the applicants are people of status or means.

I'm sorry. I should have said that in my part of the country it is unusual for a man to choose not to wear a wedding band. Of course, they don't if it is dangerous on their job. I should not have said "most". Certainly, Harry should do what make he and Meghan happy.

I wonder if that will have any impact on Abbey vs Windsor.
I have wondered that myself.

She has been pretty much on target with her reporting on H & M so I hope she is correct. I don't want to wait any longer.

I'm thinking Mia Tindall would make an adorable (if rambunctious) flower girl while Savannah and Isla Phillips would make lovely junior bridesmaids. Maybe Viscount Severn as a page boy? You could also have Robert and Rose Fellowes, the grandchildren of Baroness Fellowes, or Rosemary and Henry Hutt, the grandchildren of Lady McCorquodale. It would be a nice gesture to include some of the Spencer cousins in the bridal party.

I hope he does but that is more due to personal preference than anything else.
I think it would be nice if he did. Meghan will likely have some input on that. It's another thing to look forward to...

I'm guessing an April or a May wedding (f*ck the saying, who cares. Loads of couples get married in May) in St. George Chapel. Without the Bank holiday and the amount of organisation to pull off a wedding in central London which is too expensive and in my opinion also too elaborate.
We'll see. I don't think the lack of bank holiday really matters, as Prince Andrew married at WA without one. I'm still partial to WA for Harry and Meghan but I kind of suspect it will be St George's. I would love to be wrong though!

The only reason I want it at WA is because I want the balcony kiss. And yes, I know St. George has the steps, but it’s not the same as a balcony kiss. However, if I was a betting person, my money is going to St. George’s. The reason is the PoW didn’t announce it’ll be in London in the announcement.

Wasn't there an official comment about how this was going to be a "non-traditional wedding?"

I think it might entail casual clothing and a big Windsor bash for families of military personnel ... something along those lines. Yes, something very different with a focus on charity or supporting the military or one of Diana's causes.

All the talk about non-traditional wedding has come from the media. Nothing in the PoW announcement or comments from today indicate the particulars.

Tomorrow BP is supposed to release the time and location of the wedding.

Yes, I noticed but perhaps that's because they hadn't yet decided on a location? The balcony kiss is the main reason I want a WA wedding as well. I'm prepared for St. George's but I'll hold out a little hope until it's confirmed.

Basically, the announcement from the Prince of Wales today was almost word for word identical to the one he issued when William and Kate got engaged. No particulars other than just the announcement that they are engaged was made.

We won't have to wait too long. In fact, I think I may forego a long winter's nap as I imagine the details will be released in the morning, London time.

I'm usually up around 5am. That makes it about 11 am London time...maybe I'll be up before the BP announcement!

But wouldn't it be fantastic with a Scottish wedding. Pre-wedding Ball att Stirling Castle, Wedding Service at St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh. Harry wearing a kilt and the drums and bagpipes are playing while Meghan enters the Church and they are leaving, followed by a cortege at the Royal Mile and a post-wedding lunch at Palace of Holyrood House....Yeah i know it won't happen but it would have been great.
Ah, that would be my ideal wedding for Harry and Meghan..........something different and out of the box and just for them......it won't happen because HM does not go there till later in the year, so London it is.....St. George's has my vote for it seems more comfortable and it is a bit smaller also.

The wedding should be at St. Paul's. Period.

Harry is very charismatic and marketable. Other than his grandmother, brother, paternal aunt, and paternal cousins removed (Alexandra and Marie-Christine) he is the most popular royal.

He deserves the spotlight of the decade, and in a time when Britain and the world is going through tensions and economic and social division like never seen before, it is time for some majestic world joy.

St. Paul's.

Actually William and Catherine's announcement said:
'The wedding will take place in the Spring or Summer of 2011, in London. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course.

St. Paul's.
There is no way its going to be St. Paul's. The wedding will not be determined by popularity whatsoever. He will not ever have a bigger or grander wedding than his brother, who is the heir to the heir, did. William's wedding wasn't even a state wedding. Those are for monarchs and heirs only.

It will be a wonderfully, beautiful wedding and done how the couple wish to do it.
