Anything that doesn't come from named sources should be taken with a very large grain of salt. Especially if you consider how privately Harry and Meghan have been able to conduct their relationship until now.

I wouldn't expect to get any real leaks about the wedding to be honest.

US Weekly has been off about nearly aspect of this relationship. Before this, I believe they ran another "exclusive" claiming Harry and Meghan would announce their engagement in January. We know how that turned out.

And Doria may very well walk her down the aisle but it's safe to say US Weekly has no real inside information on that.

Oh I know they don't have any real info. I just would love it. I still think it will be the dad.

I can write using the same "tricks" the media uses. For example. "Unnamed sources (I'll reveal my sources too. They're the voices in my head) have informed me that it is most probable that Harry and Meghan will have their first child within three years after the wedding."

There you have it. People actually pay green dollars for this kind of stuff. I think I've missed my calling.

How many times from August (the Africa trip) till November was an engagement announcement expected 'momentarily' from 'sources'? Even a broken clock etc etc.

By the way, isn't there a Privy Council meeting next week? I wonder whether anything, like a formal written consent from a certain grandmother, has been added to the agenda?

Agreed. That magazine makes stuff up.

However, I'd like to see her walk down the isle alone. She's a grown woman, and doesn't need anyone to 'give her away'. I think she'd look lovely walking down the isle to her prince by herself. Plus, I don't think she's super-close to her dad.

Meghan on the contrary has herself said she is close to her father. People making assumptions based on that Harry hasn't met him yet.

Its not a matter of the old 'giving away', but escorting her down the aisle.

That sure wouldn't do it!

I think we pretty much all know that if there were to be such a thing as a dog ring bearer, HM would insist on it being one of the corgis. She knew that's why the her corgis were playing "suck up" to Meghan when she visited Sandrinham.

How soon did Royal Wedding merchandise for Prince William and Catherine go on the market after their engagement had been announced?

I think it depends on if it's official or unofficial, no? The unofficial ones were made available the day of the announcement.

THE leader of the council covering Windsor Castle has asked police to remove homeless people from the area before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding in May.

I’m not going to defend this type of behaviour - cleaning up homelessness by simply moving homelessness is not a solution. However, this is not at all uncommon behaviour. It happens every time a major event that draws a lot of national or international attention happens.

Several posts presenting opinion as fact without sources, and responses, have been removed.

I don't know where this info comes from but it smacks of political manoeuvring to me ( and that includes the police as a possible source)

Can we please all be totally honest for a moment - no one wants homeless people on the streets on the day of the wedding - no one.

The fact that something needs to be done to help them is a real and active problem but small towns like Windsor struggle to cope - this isn't a nasty request, its a plea for help.
