(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. The 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.
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. Markle’s mother will ride with her to St. George’s Chapel on the big day, while her father will be waiting at the chapel to walk her down the aisle. 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.

Bless her heart. Meghan seemed a little nervous as she took everything in. I’m sure her curtsy will smooth out a little as she continues to get used to royal behavior :).

(SL) – The news most were expecting has finally been announced. Prince Harry has found his Princess in Meghan Markle.
The story broke early Monday morning to nobody’s surprise outside of the naysayers. Some were skeptical because Markle is a divorcee and the world knows how strict the rules can be within the Royal Family but it appears the Queen of England is delighted to welcome Meghan to the family.
The hints have been apparent lately following pictures of Harry talking to Meghan’s mother, Doria Radlan, a yoga instructor and social worker who works for Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services in California at the Invictus games.
Doria divorced Meghan’s father Thomas (Hollywood Cameraman and Lighting Director) when she was six. A couple of months ago there was speculation that Markle had met Queen Elizabeth which was even more telling of the status of their relationship.
But the engagement appeared to be imminent when Markle quit her role on the TV series ‘Suits’ and closed down her blog The Tig and ended her partnership with Canadian retailer Reitmans.
