LOL! These two would never go away. Inviting them to the wedding would just make them more emboldened.

Meghan was right to continue to ignore them.

Well, that will be lovely to wake up too!

What's left besides the bridal party and guests?

ETA: And I agree with the consensus that its best to ignore Samantha and Thomas Jr for many of the reasons listed.

At the press briefing I hope the team is ready. Some reporter I'm afraid will bring up Jr's letter as a gotcha question, hoping to throw them off balance.

Definitely! I wonder if they will confirm Thomas Sr.'s attendance.

People magazine is usually a highly reliable source but nothing is better than Kensington Palace IMO. Than that will discredit some of Jr.'s comments because it will show 1) contrary to his lovely letter (said with all kinds of sarcasm) Thomas Sr. will be in attendance in the wedding and 2) will lead to the inevitable questions like if he was wrong about this...what else is he wrong about?

Yeah,,,the team will be ready with the usual "no comment ". In addition to the bridal party, what about Meghan's court of arms announcement?

I can't imagine what else it would be other than the wedding party. We know the dress and dukedom won't be announced til the day of the wedding...unless they are going to confirm Meghan's parents attending? I don't really see them doing that even.

It’s not a press conference but a press briefing. We may or may not get info tomorrow.

The information may get embargoed until either the wedding day or a few days before.

^^^ Correct. They said it was a big briefing but I got the impression the details likely will be released in the coming days.

The bridal party, coat of arms, pre wedding locations/vehicle, and arrival schedule would be my guess.

That's extremely naive. First, they've BEEN talking. Had they been invited, the press and all those that criticized Meghan for their behavior will feel completely justified to put all of their past behavior on her and feels as though it give credibility to the negative things they've said about Meghan. Second, a leopard doesn't change spots. They will just keep talking, and this time, they would actually be empowered and be seen as credible because they've been on the inside. There is a reason why royals close rank and cut out those that sold them out.

Samantha was trashing Meghan on her twitter the week Meghan and Harry's relationship became public. She's the one who brought up the pushy princess, social climber tags re Meghan. Her tune only changed, when she realised, that the relationship was serious, and she had stuff to gain from praising Meghan. If these people were invited to the wedding, it would be the same re every milestone, they'd want this and that and if they didn't get their way, they'd become nasty. Tom Jr published his own emails with his lawyer, where he tried to demand money from Meghan, or he'd embarrass her. That had nothing to do with a wedding invitation.

And I have to add, why on earth should Meghan have to invite her 'enemies' to her wedding? Why should she placate these adults toddlers in the hopes they would behave? She's allowed to make her own wedding a happy day for herself and Harry, not feed two overgrown egoes, and have these haters in her wedding who aren't even part of her life, haven't been for decades.

I'm moving this quote over here so I my response can be in the correct thread.

Someone brought up a good point in the Wedding thread:

Quote:

Oh yes you’re quite right, I mean just because we’ve seen the plethora of photos the Markles have sold of daddy & meg in childhood, including the graduation one, that isn’t to say non exist of her with him as an adult ...She must’ve had some on her instagram surely like the ones with mummy


Which led me to wonder:

When was the last time that we know of that Meghan and her father were together? We have tons of photos of Meghan as an adult with her mom and zippo of her and daddy. I get the feeling that when this family fractured long ago it turned into Doria and Meghan against the world, and that included her dad.

Don't quote me on this and perhaps someone else can provide more information but I believe that Meghan spent Thanksgiving 2016 in LA with both Doria and her father. Mom and Dad are still on good terms with each other. I'm going by memory here so it may not be exactly accurate.

Thanksgiving 2016. How do we know? Meghan posted it on IG thanking the two people that brought her into the world.

This is getting disturbing. It's one thing to discuss family friction and fractures. It's another to disregard everything we've heard from Meghan first hand about how important her dad is to her upbringing and how much she loves him just so people can speculate she's against her dad with her mom. That's quite disgusting. If the mods continue to allow this type of wild speculation to go on here, it'd be quite sad.

There's nothing to base this family feud theory on, we can't just start to assume Meghan is feuding with her dad because there aren't publicly shared pictures of them out there.

It is a pity Missy that your media are not showing many photos of Meghan with her Dad. Our media show plenty of photos of them together. Horseriding and as a little girl. They also show bits of a home movie where Tom jnr is holding a toddler Meghan by the finger tips. Helping her to stand. I guess its just a matter of what your media have decided to show.

Lots of speculation through kaleidoscope glasses going on here. I don't recall anywhere credible that ever alluded to discord between Meghan and her mother or her father. In fact, what I have heard is that they're all still quite close despite a divorce.

I was talking about as an adult. I do remember Thanksgiving now that it's mentioned. But you have to admit there aren't a lot of photos out there of her dad and her when she was an adult.

Oh fine, I'm done. Delete away if you want mods. I should know better than try to ask a provocative question.

They're personal family photographs is why. Duh. They *shouldn't* be shared with the masses.
