Time to move on - let's get back to other elements of the wedding to discuss.

Funny, but who is representing the doll with the brown hair?

US Magazine wedding forecast. For what it's worth.

I happen to think the wedding ceremony will be similar to the Earl and Countess of Wessex wedding in 1999. You can go on YouTube to watch their wedding at St. George’s and the Chapel make the best venue for an elegant and intimate wedding.

I think if the Cambridge’s were allowed to get away with it, they would’ve had their wedding there.

I just hope the congregation will be able to see the ceremony on set up tv screens.

For their wedding cake, I hope they have a traditional cake like Will and Kate, or Frederik and Mary. Hopefully they won’t get a modern looking cake like Albert and Charlene, or Madeleine and Chris.

However, whatever makes them happy.

I know it's flashy (suits Monaco) but I love it. All that pink and ocean motif. Anyone know what kind of cake it was? Plus the smaller one they are cutting which doesn't look as interesting?

I loved their cake too. This is the only thing I could find about theirs

Quote:
Their wedding cake was the centerpiece of the reception. In addition to the 110 pounds of strawberries, the cake also featured 2,000 edible flowers including Proteas, South Africa's national flower. Most of the ingredients were picked from Roc Agel, the estate that Monaco's Prince Rainier III gave to Grace Kelly as a wedding present in 1956.
I find Will and Kate's so boring. The British weddings seem to be white: white flowers, white cakes, white...... I am hoping Meghan and Harry break a few moulds in cake and flowers. Or at least Eugenie. Hope at least one if not both weddings break out a bit.

I really like Madeline and Chris's. It looks like it wasn't really cake but a artful display of macarons. Cake is always so disappointing/overrated as a food, but macarons are consistently delicious little delights!

I agree, as a personal fan of macarons I thought Madeleine and Chris's cake was fun and creative. It was modern without being too overboard, unlike Albert and Charlene's, which was a bit too flashy for me, but as others have said; that's Monaco!

I wouldn’t not mind if they did not have a white wedding cake. I would love if they had a yellow wedding cake, or in any other color. To me, yellow wedding cakes are very beautiful. It would be great if they had a yellow but traditional cake with flowers.

I thought American members in particular would like to know that a new IPSOS-MORI poll has just been released showing that 69 % of the respondents believe that Donald Trump should not be invited to Harry and Meghan's wedding, and only 23 % think that he should. If, however, president Obama is also invited, support for inviting president Trump rises to 39 %, although 54 % still think he should not be invited.

I believe Mr Trump said [whilst in Davos] that he expected to visit the United Kingdom 'in the later half of this year'.
That would preclude his attendance on the 19th May..

Well, I think it would be a good idea to invite him.

He probably wouldn't attend, but it would be a friendly gesture and help repair the damage from the waffling over the state dinner.

It isn't up to Harry and Meghan to repair anything. It is their wedding and a private event. They are not even a semi state occasion. The leaders of other commonwealth countries are not going to be invited. So why should Trump be invited? Obama is not a sitting president, and his is a personal invite.

The government can fix what ever mess there is with state visits. Though it doesn't seem for one moment that it was the British totally or at all at fault for the issue. No need for Harry and Meghan to pander to him and his whims.

Politics is an art form you're correct. But remember, royals don't get involved in politics.

The wedding is not a state occasion so no current head of state would be invited unless they are friends, family or acquaintances. Harry and Meghan are not obliged to invite Trump. The Obamas were not invited to William and Kate's wedding while he was president, in fact, no sitting US president has ever attended a British royal wedding. Besides, it's been a year still the state visit was offered to Trump and from what has been reported he is not well liked in the UK for various reasons, pushing the state visit back (and now a "working visit" is on the table). Trump's remarks and actions may be the contributing factors for the results in the IPSOS poll; and it's been reported he backed out of the US embassy out of fear of protests. Members of Parliament dragging him on social media for the cancelled dedication doesn't help. There have also been reports that the UK government, specifically the Foreign Office, is trying to convince Harry and Meghan not to invite the Obamas, friends of Harry, out of fear of offending Trump if he's not invited. This last bit can be factoring into the poll results: a perception of Trump is trying to crash the wedding and pressuring Kensington Palace and and the government to keep the Obamas off the guest list and shoehorn himself and possibly FLOTUS (First Lady) onto it.

I believe there's a fear Trump's presence at the wedding will cause a scene and nobody wants that. Politics should not enter into the wedding but I'm afraid it has.

It shouldn't be a matter of protests or anything else. Harry and Meghan have no relationship with the man, so no invite, plain and simple.

The only precedence for a Trump being invited would be Melania. Nancy Reagan attended while FLOTUS, but then again Diana and Charles' wedding WAS a state occasion, Harry and Meghan's isn't. And even then, her husband didn't attend. Nancy also attended Andrew and Fergie's wedding but the weddings of the younger children were much bigger occasions back in the 80s.

A reason politics have entered into it is Harry's very visible and recent involvement with the Obama's, that's partly what has sparked all the carrying on about invitations.

Frankly I don't know what difference it makes. It's a private wedding, the guest list is going to be based on their personal wishes not state requirements.

I'm just saying that, since things are strained at the moment, it would be a politic gesture. He won't go, so why not?
In any case, it sure wouldn't hurt!

I'm sorry but since it would be a political gesture is exactly why he should not be invited to a private royal non-state family wedding. The royal family are not to be used to make political guestures. Added to that, Harry has a relationship with the Obamas, so if he may not be able to invite them, why invite Trump? Meghan is on public record as being anti-Trump.

Last but not least, Windsor is going to be locked down security wise for large crowds. Can you imagine if Trump is invited and attends and the large protests that would result? I don't think that the royal family or the government want images of protests in connection with a royal wedding being beamed around the world.
