LOL I have had that same thought!

That was one exciting morning indeed. Even my fingers was too excited to type my congratulations. I suspect the same feelings will be involved for tnis couple.

Yeps! Here too! I think the members here that weren't here at that time should be prepared to log in, read whats going on, take a break to get a cup of coffee and a snack and come back here to find that there's three new pages of posts to read. That'll be the way of things then, most likely, until a week after the wedding actually happens. We'll have so much to talk about as then the relationship between Meghan and Harry will be very, very public.

Preferably in Westminster Abbey or wherever the wedding would take place.

During Will and Kate's wedding I was watching the events itself while also continually glued to TRF too. We can all be together virtually over cyberspace.

I don't expect Harry's wedding to be too much different from William's except maybe a bit less "royal" and maybe on a smaller scale. I'd really love to see it happen sooner rather than later because I do get the gut feeling that Harry and Meghan have found something very strong between the two of them and that they can make something that lasts as a partnership for the rest of their lives.

Then again, I'm not holding my breath because I can remember buying into a fairy tale match made in heaven that was a disaster. Take it as it comes I guess.

HA..maybe if we start appealing to them now (surely they read the forum??) we will get an invite???? Wouldn't that be something!

Yep, did the same thing for W&K lol post and watch!

IF they marry (and I have the same feeling about it you do), I think it will be a lower key event....Meghan has been married before, both of them are well past 30 and it doesn't seem either one of them are 'splashy'.

Being further away from the crown also gives Harry more leeway into having the kind of wedding he prefers. It'll still be a big deal as its definitely a royal wedding but I think we'll see more elements of a laid back nature to it.

One thing for sure, once the announcement hits the fan, Meghan most definitely would have or be in the process of setting up permanent residence in the UK. Another aspect that she'll have to deal with is the relocation of her fur babies to their new home. Interesting what she'll have to comply with.

Yes I would expect a more relaxed type of wedding. I'm sure he'll wear his military uniform ..but I am not convinced he'll marry in one of the big Churches.

Our son just transferred a few months ago to Germany with his wife and 2 dogs ..they have pretty similar requirements. It wasn't any big deal really, all seemed to go smoothly.

So assuming it all goes to plan...I would guess she would move in (quietly) with Harry at his current home (after engagement announced).

I think that'll be the way of it too. Times sure have changed. I seriously don't see Meghan being holed up at Clarence House or Buckingham Palace (which'll probably be under renovation anyways) like in the days of yore. I can see Harry and Meghan being free to plan the wedding they want without even as much "requirements" that William had.

We'll see what happens but its all definitely something to hope for and look forward to.

Yeah didn't Kate more or less live with William prior to the wedding?

I think any requirements would be almost non-existent outside any Church ones that need to be observed.

Fingers crossed for the next year or so!

I was working the day Will & Kate got married. Luckily it was in an elderly home so most of them were watching too and I could pop in and out and watch with them.

St. George's Chapel seems like a very likely choice too.

They lived together in university and shared hotel rooms all the time while they were going on all those jet set vacations.

I think Meg and Harry are in fact not going to be forbidden marriage at this point.

I can't think of any reason Harry and Meghan would be forbidden to marry.

I know W&K lived together at St Andrews and shared hotel rooms etc, it was all unofficial. I was speaking more about after the official announcement they were engaged.

I've seen St George's mentioned here before...I wondered if they would go even smaller though.

Never know, supposed he could go for Westminster too, as his brother did.

I think Kate had a flat and William more or less spent all his time there rather than at Clarence House. Seems logical to me. Sophie also "lived" quite a bit, I think, at Edward's apartments at Buckingham Palace before the wedding too.

Its all good. It adds to the fact how well couples know each other before going down that aisle.

Yeah I don't remember anyone paying much attention to where they lived prior to the wedding. I seem to remember hearing that about S&E also.

When they are together it does seem that they spend a lot of time away from the media at Harry's home just hanging ...that's good that they are doing this.


LaRae

If they do marry..can you imagine the fashion threads for the house of Windsor?

I also agree that if Meghan and Harry do get married, or whoever Harry marries, the wedding will be in a more relaxed setting. Now that George and Charlotte are here, he has 'sunk' further in the line of succession and thus I doubt he will have a big ceremony at Westminster Abbey like his brother. I can imagine that the wedding will be fairly small (for the BRF anyway) and intimate; held at a location like St. George's Chapel at Windsor where Edward and Sophie got married.

You know, if it wasn't for the very good pictures the DF provide, I would never visit that sight again.

I'm totally in agreement with that. Perhaps we should have an area specifically for Fail articles and call it The Click Bait thread so that what goes into threads like this one are actually credible sources to be believed.

Its kind of sad that the writers and the articles don't live up to the excellence of their photography.

With the exception of Robert Hardman, but just when it comes to the royals, because I don't agree with him in anything else.
