Just Two Weeks Until Royal Wedding

(London) – With the royal wedding just two weeks away, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are stepping out of the spotlight to prepare. The palace released more details about the upcoming event, but Markle’s dress is still top secret. Well…depending on who you ask. The Daily Mail posted an image that is believed to be Markle’s dress; a hand-stitched, heavily beaded design that is valued at just over 100k. 4BDD03AF00000578-0-image-a-82_1525466771557The site reports, multiple royal and fashion industry sources have revealed the actress has opted for British couturiers Ralph & Russo to make the first of two gowns she plans to wear on May 19. The above mentioned that she will reportedly walk down the aisle at St George’s Chapel in front of 600 guests  – and an estimated billion TV viewers worldwide – as well as  one for the reception being held afterwards by the Queen in St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle.02-meghan-markle-prince-harry-2.w710.h473
And contrary to a published tabloid report from Markle’s half brother, the palace says Markle’s dad is invited along with her mother and both parents are going to get acquainted with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles a week before the wedding.

The bride reportedly won’t have a maid-of-honor. Naturally, Prince William is Harry’s best man.

The late Princess Diana’s three siblings will attend the wedding, but baby Prince Louis will be resting at home. It’s still unclear if Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be among the page boys and flower girls.

Meghan Markle’s Toronto Home Hits The Market For $1 Million

(SL) – Former Suits actress Meghan Markle’s house in Toronto has hit the market already.  The 36-year old divorcee who is preparing to marry 33-year old Prince Harry moved out of the house last month after she wrapped her final season on the the USA network tv show.

Modest in appearance from the outside, the inside proves you can’t judge a book by its cover.

Located on sleepy Yarmouth Road in the leafy well-heeled Toronto neighborhood of Seaton Village, the property, reportedly rented by the show, was home to Meghan for several years.

It’s an open-plan house. And the estate agents as ‘luxe’, says it boasts a cinema room, a high-spec kitchen-diner, three sumptuous bedrooms and two bathrooms.  It appears the realtor is also selling it for $500,000 more than it was a decade ago. It’s assumable that they’re attempting to capitalize on the house’s royal connection considering Prince Harry would visit Meghan there quite often and Meghan herself will soon be marrying into Queen Elizabeth II’s family.
