This means that who Harry marries is a matter of state. Who Beatrice or Eugenie marry is not, but who Harry marries is.

I am perfectly aware that the consent is legally required, but what I meant should be pretty clear. Being first or fifth in line is not the same and the required degree of caution when deciding on Harry's marriage is obviously not the same as it would be for Charles or William.

Let's be realistic, unless a tragedy happens Harry won't be king, neither will any of his children. He won't normally have direct access to government papers or government ministers and will have little involvement in state mattters. Hence the claim that his marriage is de facto, ialbeit not de jure, outside the category of a relevant state issue.

Does anyone know when Suits stops filming?
Suits films up to November.

People are speculating that they will be engaged by Invictus so choosing significant dates before that. A romantic birthday proposal for one.

Even if they get engaged earlier, I don't see it being announced before filming is at least done. I think there will be the obvious expectation of her being in London after engagement in lead up. I don't see a wedding until after season finale anyways.

I thought I read a post a while back which mentioned that they had a short hiatus from filming in June. As Harry will be in Singapore and Australia in early June they won't meet up then, but maybe later.

There's probably been a lot of preening in the spa for several of the female guests in the run up to this wedding. It's just unfortunate that a lot of the fresh complexions and the finery looks as if it's going to be hidden under multiple umbrellas. That's English weather for you!

She has a killer lower body!
I can't wait to see what she wears tomorrow. I hope she wears a nice, elegant, and chic fascinator instead of a hat.

She does that and she's sold out! Won't think the same of her. In fact, a fascinator in hair's breath of her hair and they are engaged! She's morphed into 'them'.

I'm sure the people who invented the law knew this as well, get they still chose 6 degrees of the crown to be their cutoff mark.

How tall is she? She has that long lean look that kinda reminds me of Diana, first time that's crossed my mind, seeing her in this outfit.

Meghan is 5'7". Diana was 5'10". Harry is 6'1".

Prince William is 6'3".

Meghan is 1" shorter than Camilla, in fact, so she would be one among several royal women moderate in height (many are 5'5").

She's actually pretty short. I'd guess 5'5 or 5'6"

Gina Torres is 5'10" and you can see Gina, Sarah and Meghan together in this photo: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...d22513b891.jpg

It's even more pronounced in a photo where Gina's wearing flat sandals and Meghan's wearing 3" heels and Gina is still noticeably taller.

Glad that Meghan wore a Toronto Blue Jays baseball cap today; she is certainly showing allegiance to her adopted home while in London!

Very much so, because he is in a position to be a Regent.

Please no. 9/10 fascinators come out looking like some kindergarten art project gone wrong. A nice proper hat is elegant and just as fitting for a wedding.

Meghan Markle is listed as being 5' 7" in bio details that I've seen online. And I suspected as much having seen her in pictures in heels and in flats, and walking/standing next to Prince Harry, who is 6'2".

Harry is listed online as being 6'2". Where do you see him as 6'1"?

Harry is listed as 6'1" plus 1/4" Splicing it fine. ON IMDb.

Meghan is listed as 5'7" (not 5'5" or 5"6"). But even so, Harry is 6 inches taller which she can off-set in 3-inch heels to some degree.

Well regardless of how tall she is or isn't, alongside Harry she looks petite. Perfectly proportioned but petite and, going on her physique! and her flair for clothes, a believe something of a pocket rocket!

The chances of Harry being appointed as a regent to the Queen is very slim. Even in Charles' or William's reign, the chances are still slim.

More importantly though, is that Harry is and has been a Councilor of State in the UK if and when needed.
