But Maids of Honour are married women and can be attendants at weddings. Brides can have what they like, royal or otherwise.

I like that idea...it could look quite nice too. Not sure on the 'American' symbol...so many she could go with.

Nah, he wonít. Itís different than when he was Williamís supporter, but itíll take everything in him not to look. He seems to generally look for where Meghan is whenever they are in close proximity. But this is tradition. Itíll probably be the longest few seconds of his life though.

She might pick something representative of Toronto as well. She seems like to pay homage to her adopted home.

I know she's technically not Royal but Zara had a matron of honor-her best friend Dolly Maude whose son was the pageboy.
I think it would be fine for Meghan too. And you know, the people that would be upset by that--well their opinions probably don't really matter on something like this.

I assume that you mean Matrons of Honor, then?

I agree, it will probably feel like five ages instead of five minutes (just picking a random number of minutes that it will take for Meghan to reach Harry at the altar).

I just realized that this is a difference between British royal weddings and the weddings I'm used to attending. At the ones I'm used to, the groom stands at the altar facing the congregation and watches his bride approach him every step of the way. Harry did have to peek at Kate.

Yeah that is very different.. Here in America the groom watches his bride walk down the aisle. I don't know how the grooms handle the first moment seeing her being when turns around but I guess that is another special moment. Ready for it!

I do think that when that moment comes, they could turn down all the lights to really, really dim and Harry's eyes and his smile will light the room as he first sees his Meghan. I think this moment will be the biggie for me watching the wedding.

I think I read somewhere that British grooms not facing the bride was optional, so Harry could watch Meghan walk down the aisle if he wanted? I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

I know Meghan and Jessica are close but I can't really see Jessica in the matron of honor role. Lindsay seems more likely to me but I wouldn't be shocked if Meghan has no adult bridesmaids.

Sweet idea, but not possible.. St Georges is FLOODED with natural light, regardless of artificial sources.

Here is video from Edward and Sophie's 1999 wedding as they depart St. George's Chapel for a ride through Windsor.

It might give us a suggestion as to what Harry and Meghan will do after their ceremony.

So there were two carriages. I suppose bridesmaids and family were in the second one. I couldn't see, was it Charles as well?

Meghan was Lindsay's MOH so you probably right. I know she is in the final stages of her pregnancy so she will have some time to recover by then. That is if she even has one but I would imagine she would like that.

Curryong-While watching the video I believe that I saw Charles and Andrew in the carriage with the young attendants. I didn't see any other family in landaus or carriages for the procession through Windsor. The Queen and DoE returned to the Castle but didn't follow the couple or the attendants including Charles and Andrew. (I'm sure that was his bald spot and he was wearing light grey that day.)

Here is a second video that shows them in the streets around Windsor. Start at minute 22:00.

Actually it really isn't tradition for the groom not to watch his bride walk down the aisle. At least not one the royals stick to. I heard William and Kate really wanted to do it that way because she didn't want him to see her until she got to the alter, and he didn't really want everyone seeing him react to her walking down the aisle. But other royal grooms absolutely have watched their brides walk down the aisle. Edward did when he married Sophie. Andrew did when he married Sarah. I believe Prince Charles did when he married Diana. Just knowing what we do of Harry, I can't imagine he won't want to as well.

No matter what he decides, I bet his eyes glisten. I just think they will.

Could Meghan's mother and father both walk their daughter down the aisle?

The downside of Harry facing the congregation is that we might not get to see the first moment he sees her in his wedding dress as I'm sure the camera would be focused on her as she walks the down the aisle. But I want to see that first moment dammit!

That's an interesting thought. Harry did ask for both of their permission.

I would really love to see that happen. Then when the celebrant asks "Who gives this woman in marriage", Tom and Doria say "We do". Its a possibility as we know that her parents have quite an amicable divorce.

Or maybe Doria just does it. Now that would be interesting.
