Who will be attending the Royal Wedding?
600 people have been invited to the ceremony and 200 to a special after party event, which will be held at Frogmore House, Windsor. The guest list is being kept tightly under wraps but actress Priyanka Chopra, who is a close friend of Meghan’s, has confirmed her attendance and we’d be surprised if some of her former Suits co-stars weren’t there too.
Will Meghan Markle’s family be attending the wedding?
There’s been much speculation about this, especially given that some distant family members have been happy to ‘spill the beans’ in the press. It has been confirmed that Meghan’s mother Doria Radlan will be attending. Her father Thomas Markle Snr recently had a heart attack and following the set-up of some paparazzi photos, by her half-sister, it’s looking unlikely he will now be attending.
What will Meghan’s title be after the wedding?
It hasn’t been confirmed yet but it’s looking likely that Meghan will become HRH The Duchess of Sussex as The Duke of Sussex title is currently vacant, and it’s expected that will go to Harry following the wedding.
Is there a Bank Holiday for the Royal Wedding?
Sadly not. As the wedding falls on a Saturday and Harry isn’t an immediate heir to the throne, the public will not be getting an additional Bank Holiday this time around.
