Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle which will take place on May 19. Mr. Thomas Markle walk his daughter down the aisle of St George's Chapel
- Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry's family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day.

- In the morning of the wedding day, Ms. Doria Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle to Windsor Castle by car. Mr. Thomas Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George's Chapel.

- Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading during the ceremony.

- Guests will arrive between 0930hrs and 1100hrs. Guests will arrive at the Round Tower by coach and will be seen walking to the South Door of St George's Chapel.

- Members of The Royal Family will begin to arrive from 1120hrs, and enter St George's Chapel through the Galilee Porch. Some will be on foot, and others will arrive by car.

- Prince Harry and his brother The Duke of Cambridge will arrive at St George's Chapel most likely by foot and will enter via the West Steps. This will allow Their Royal Highnesses to acknowledge all of the people gathered in the Castle precincts, including the 200 charity representatives gathered in the Horseshoe Cloister at the bottom of the steps.

- There will be a brief stop at the Castle where Ms. Ragland will head onto the Chapel and Ms. Markle will be joined by some of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys before she continues her journey to the church, where she will enter via the West Steps.

- After the Service ends, the newly married couple will walk out of the church and acknowledge the 200 representatives of Prince Harry's charities gathered in the Cloister.

- At the end of the ceremony, when the couple step into their Carriage, close family members will gather on the West Steps and wave them off on their Procession.

- Members of the congregation will file out of the church onto the grass to see the start of the Procession before walking to the reception at St George's Hall. All guests will attend the reception.

- Bride and Groom will go to Windsor Castle for the evening reception at Frogmore House.

- Official photos to be taken by Alexi Lubomirski will be relased during the week.

  2. Finally some updates about the wedding. Hopefully lots of photos and a super wedding to watch on TV. The best to both of them, for their special day.

  3. So Harry gets to meet his father-in-law for the first time a few days before the wedding, and never gets to see the rest of the bride's father because she does not get along with 20 plus members of her family. Good luck Harry hope you didn't rush into this!

    1. Given what the "20 plus" members of her family have been saying I wouldn't get along with them. They strike me as absolutely awful.

    2. Agree, Franny. Who knows what further name-calling and abusive rants her half-sister and half-brother would indulge in after the wedding, at the royal family's expense. Also not sure of security concerns that may have been dictated to Meghan given her half-brother's arrest for violence, threatening with a gun, and admitted alcoholic rages.

    3. I agree too
      I read somewhere Meghan's mather, in the past few days, had a long meeting with a famous american journalist. So probably we'll read an article about it.
      Let's hope it will have the right touch. I'm not so sure

    4. Middleton family never gave an interview. Stylish choice!

    5. Given the vicious, nasty, downright untruthful comments by some of Ms. Markle's HALF-siblings, why would anyone expect for them to receive an invitation to the wedding? By their own admission, each one of these individuals have not been in contact with Ms. Markle for well over five years or more. So again, why are they expecting to be invited when they made no effort to remain in communication with her prior to her engagement to Prince Harry?

      And what is the big deal about Prince Harry not meeting Ms. Markle's father until a couple of days before the wedding? As it has been widely reported and even mentioned by Prince Harry himself, he has spoken with Mr. Markle frequently by phone, so its not as if there hasn't been any contact whatsoever between them. Not that I'm royalty by any measure, I didn't meet my in-laws until months after I was married because similar to Ms. Markle and Prince Harry, my in-laws lived overseas (in Australia) and I'm an American.

      It is truly sad how some people just can't bring themselves to be happy for this couple.

    6. So the bitter, nasty, contemptible, downright dishonest HALF-siblings who by their own admission made no effort to remain in contact with Ms. Markle UNTIL to her engagement to Prince Harry, should receive an invitation to the wedding, huh? Why? Their behavior alone speaks volumes about the types of people they really are despite the horrible things they say about Ms. Markle.

      And seriously what is the big deal about Prince Harry meeting Mr. Markle face-to-face a couple of days before the wedding? As it has been widely reported and even mentioned by Prince Harry himself, he has spoken to his future father-in-law frequently on the phone, so its not as if there hasn't been any communication between the two. I didn't meet my in-laws until 8 months after getting married; they lived overseas in Australia and I'm an American.

  5. So she has to come by car in her wedding gown from London to Windsor? That is about 45 minute ride. That seems odd. Why wouldn't she prepare at Windsor?

    1. Does it say that they will come from London Diane? I think they will be staying nearby. I agree that a 45 minute journey would be horrendous - given the crowds and roadworks etc!.

    2. No Barbara - I posted below. She will be at Windsor on Friday night in an undisclosed location. The castle has I think 1000 rooms. She and her Mother will travel from there up the Long Way to West Steps. Her Dad will meet them there. That makes better sense. 45 min is w no traffic. Imagine the cost w security to actually come from London.
      I am so excited 🤗

  6. Ok so little bits are missing here. Meghan and her Mother will be in Windsor on Friday night at a unnamed location. There drive to the chapel will be short. That makes more sense.

  7. Easy on the blush, Meghan. Blend, blend, blend. Love the blouse!

  8. It’s unfortunate the castle is directly underneath the Heathrow flight path. Every minute planes come roaring over to the point where it does become uncomfortable. It is also unfortunate that the guests invited to the grounds of the castle are not given refreshments and are advised to bring a picnic.

    1. It is quite possible that airplanes will be diverted away from the castle for the couple of hours duration of the wedding, both for security and noise purposes.
      I also think it is somewhat ridiculous being invited to something and not being offered so much as a bottle of water and a biscuit. Wasn't there a famous story about crowds of uninvited strangers turning up at an event and being fed plenty of bread and fish by the host ?

    2. Agree about the food and drink - it's odd. I live near Windsor and don't find the planes that noisy - they don't come in that low over the castle and town.

    3. Taking a picnic with you....but not a bottle...would be dangerous....
      ...hopefully people will find good solutions....probably they get advise....

  9. Lady Jane Fellowes is one of the sister of princess Diana, isn't she ?

  11. In two weeks all the hoopla is over we seen the dress the Tiara, all the guest's we'll have a lot to talk about the fashions the most important dress on Meghan. After that we all can take a small breather. After that we are watching for a bump the appear. It never ends but it is fun. Well I did not get an invite,so no need for me to dust off my Tiara ha ha.I do wish them all the Happiness in the World. May God Bless them always.

  12. I feel for Ms Markle, her half-siblings tales don't reflect badly on her, they reflect badly on those telling the tales, in fact they speak volumes. Two older, less successful half-siblings who are jealous, not only of their younger siblings success in her career, but also in her success in finding love, with a Prince.

    I wish both Prince Harry and Ms Markle every happiness, I hope they have a wonderful life together.
