St. Paul's.
Umm, marketable?

Popularity has nothing to do with it. And economics plays into to it the opposite way. Security costs would be higher with St Paul's. And the venue is too large anyway.

Ah... gotcha. I must have missed that reading the announcement. Thanks.

The wedding date etc for William and Catherine's wedding were also released a few days after the actual engagement, so I don't think how not having that as the focus today has a bearing with what will be happening. I have been counting on a May wedding at St George's... We'll see what they announce later this week.

I am quite sure the two of them and key people within the family and household already know the details but they just haven't been shared yet.

As they also thought the engagement announcement was to be on Friday, I'd like to keep the options open. Maybe tomorrow, and if not tomorrow, certainly in the next few days (fot that I go by the timeline of W&C)

This info came from Camilla T (interview she did today) and she's been pretty accurate on their story. But we'll know tomorrow if she's right or not!

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.
There was one big difference; in Wm and Kate's announcement, it said they would live in Wales after the marriage; in this one, it says Harry and Meghan will live in Nottingham Cottage. Not when.

I wish the couple well; they had an articulate and charming interview. I too think it will be St George's in May so it will be interesting to see.

Do you believe that some of Prince Philip's relatives from Germany will be invited?

She already moved in...

Oh, I don't necessarily disagree, although the focus here was on the location which we knew for Will and Kate the day they announced their engagement but we don't yet know for Harry and Meghan. Hence, my response.

They may have already had some idea but I wouldn't be surprised if certain things weren't set in stone, so to speak.

That’s likely because Meghan has already moved into Nottingham Cottage.

They even told us in the interview that they've been living there together. The two words "our cottage" kind of gave it away.

It would be a nice gesture to include some of the Spencer cousins in the bridal party.
And hopefully some kids on Meghan's side of the family. I really would be irritated to see a whole wedding and no representation from Meghan's side of the family other than her parents. She has young godchildren and cousins on her side.

However, weren't there still at least two options within London; or was it clear from the start that London meant Westminster Abbey (and not St Paul's)?

My main message was that not announcing the location today doesn't necessarily imply it will be St George's (nor that it will be the Abbey).

I'm putting the date as May 26th the last Saturday in May which is also the start of a 3 day weekend in America for Memorial Day.

It would depend on the size of the wedding, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they did.

In attendance at William and Kate’s wedding was:

- Philip and Xenia of Hohenlohe-Landenburg and their spouses, grandchildren of the DoE’s eldest sister, Margarita
- Maximilian and Margarita of Baden and his wife, grandchildren of the DoE’s second sister, Theodora
- Karl Adolf of Hesse and his wife, son of the DoE’s youngest sister, Sophie.

The only sibling not represented was Cecilie, who has no surviving descendants.

Well I agree with that.

I think most assumed that WA was the only realistic option for Will and Kate.

I would imagine the ones that Charles/Harry are close with would be invited. I know several of Philip's nephews and their families were at Windsor last week for the 70th wedding anniversary.

I would think that if that were the weekend, the castle would have to be closed longer than one day for security reasons. In Washington, DC, security officials often close off areas for days before a large event.
