Congratulations! Clearly they didn't want to wait so why not just go ahead and do it, solves a lot of potential issues for everyone. They can always have a big party later.

So far only the online newspapers reporting it, wait and see if it makes the BBC soon lol.

I think they were right, the only important thing in a wedding is the commitment to each other... the rest is not very important and can be done in better times

They were really right not to wait any longer !

I guess they did decide that they wanted to be married to each other more than they wanted the big celebrations, which aren't guaranteed to be available next year either.

Of course her Grandparents being in attendance was probably also a key factor. Their wider (and younger) family and friends can perhaps have a reception with them later on.


I do hope we get some pictures released though.

Edit: Yes less "secret" and more "private".

Oh how sweet that they've married and Granny and Grandpa were able to be there in attendance. I don't see it as being a "secret" wedding but rather a private, intimate one.

They also married on my son's and his wife's 10th wedding anniversary so I have the *perfect* song handy that I'll pass along here as I did to the kids. :)

Yep and I was hoping they would "elope" and seems they kind of did. It made the most sense all considering. Once things are a bit more stabilized I think they will do a bigger ceremony with extended family and friends.

Possibly the issue is the age of the queen and Philip. If they waited a year, the grandparents are very old... and might not be there or might be too ill to attend. Im glad they did the right thing..

I agree. It was not a "secret" wedding as their families were in attendance.



As I said in another forum, it would be unreasonable to expect them to wait as we won't be back to "normal" until the second half of 2021 in the best case scenario of an effective vaccine.


I am happy for them and wish them all the best.

Congratulations for them -best wishes.

Hardly an elopement.. a private marriage with only close family and possibly a few friends in attendance. They can't have another ceremony unless they renew their vows.

Lemon Lyman 07-17-2020 07:47 AM

Awwwww so pleased for them and shows what is important to them is being husband and wife🥰

My prediction of 23/6 was right [emoji12]

Lee-Z 07-17-2020 07:50 AM

Aaawww, good on them for going ahead and having their wedding, and how lovely her grandparents also attended :flowers:

Congratulations to the couple!

Hence the quotation. I am well aware it is not that. And again they can have a small ceremony or reception with family or friends if they choose. People do this when their is a desire for more than one. I had a friend have two weddings... one in her home country and another in her husband, though the second wasn't really wedding. It was just more for the families to have that experience too as they were technically already married.

I am happy they went ahead and married. The future is unknown and her grandparents aren't getting any younger. It was the right decision all around. Wishing them looks of happiness.

An interesting line in this article:

Buckingham Palace has as yet not confirmed the wedding however British media reports say it has taken place.

Mind you they haven't denied it - but it is only the tabloids that are so far reporting it.

Another interesting tit bit I have picked up:

https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal...e-Queen-latest

Today is the 103rd anniversary of the day George V chose to change (or at least make official) the royal house from Saxe-Coburg Gotha to Windsor.
