It seems like I can’t turn on the television or browse the magazine rack without seeing images of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, The couple are certainly captivating and have everyone antsy to learn the details of their upcoming May wedding. I have to admit, I’m giddy with anticipation for the big day.
It wasn’t quite a rags to riches fairy tale for Markle, who spent years as a Toronto resident. The former Suits star was far from the household name she is at this point, prior to starting her romance with Harry. Now the couple are set to marry in mid-May while royal enthusiasts and Markle fans sit on edge anticipating images and information about the dress, the guest list, the honeymoon and everything in between. Here are the few, vague details that are known at this point:
The wedding between Meghan and Harry will take place on May 19, 2018 in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. After their vows at 1 pm, the married pair will take a carriage ride through the town of Windsor,
Anyone who thinks the dress designer will be shared ahead of the big day, is off their rocker. It’s now confirmed that Meghan has selected and her Canadian pal, Jessica Mulroney- stylist and wedding consultant- was in London assisting Meghan with the process. Only a handful of people actually know who the dress designer is. Judging by Markle’s fashion selections lately, the dress is sure to be a showstopper.
The wedding party
The only confirmed members of the wedding party are Prince William and Duchess Kate’s two little ones, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. It’s also being rumored that Jessica Mulroney’s daughter Ivy may be the flower girl.
The guest list
It was announced that 2,640 members of the public were invited to the wedding. Aside from that, little is known about celebrities and other members of the royal family who will attend. It is likely that Prince William and Duchess Kate will be there, along with William and Harry’s immediate family. Markle’s own relatives -including her half sister and half brother- have caused a bit of drama.
Meghan’s half brother,Thomas Markle, was involved in a drunken New Year’s brawl which apparently embarrassed the future royal. Her half sister, Samantha Grant, has been threatening to release a tell-all book revealing supposed negative details about Meghan. It’s unlikely that the two will be invited. Meghan’s mother and father are reported to be attending, seeing as they are close with the actress. Oh, and the Spice Girls may also make an appearance!
From small screen starlet to British royalty, Meghan Markle has certainly put her name on the map, while also carrying on with humanitarian endeavors- much like Harry- benefiting young girls and women in impoverished nations.
She and Prince Harry were once considered an odd couple and unlikely match, but the two are now one of the most adored couples around the globe. Their wedding is sure to be one spectacular event.
