This is a mini article round up about Meghan Markle, and I’m also including Prince Harry at an Invictus event today, May 30.
I really had hoped that I would never have to or want to write about Pippa’s wedding ever again, but there is an article in the Express which has some quotes I found funny, so I thought I’d share.
“BESOTTED Prince Harry left Pippa Middleton’s wedding early so that he and Meghan Markle could drive back to Kensington Palace alone together. The couple spent just four hours at the black tie bash at Bucklebury Manor, the Middletons’ Berkshire home, before quietly slipping away to London.
“A wedding insider said ‘It was very much a case of an early night for Harry and Meghan. While other guests revelled until 4am, they left at midnight. Meghan is a really lovely girl. I was quite surprised how shy and softly spoken she was. They look really sweet together – really comfortable in each other’s company and very happy.’
“Meghan’s attendance at the reception was kept so secret that her name was left off all the security plans for the night. Fearing a leak, party planners Fait Accompli are said to have arranged for the Suits star to bypass the hour-long guest screening process and go straight into the glass marquee on Harry’s arm.
“A source said: ‘The whole thing was very carefully handled. There was no way Meghan was going to upstage Pippa on her big day – they knew photographers would be looking for a shot of them rather than focusing on the newlyweds. That’s where the whole ‘no ring, no bring’ thing came in. It was a clever way of dealing with the fact Meghan wasn’t going to be at the church or lunchtime reception. Who would argue with that?’ […]
“The wedding insider added: ‘In the old days Harry would have been the last person on the dance floor. It used to be a case of, the sun’s coming up, shall we go home now? But with Meghan by his side he seemed more interested in getting back to Kensington Palace. They left hours before most of the partygoers.'”
“Who would argue with that?” A lot of people. A whole lot of people.
There have been a bunch of random fake articles floating around which Gossip Cop has taken to debunking, but in one of their debunking articles they mentioned something interesting: that Meghan “is committed to living in Toronto through the end of 2017” and that house hunting together is “very premature”. So… Not a winter wedding, then?
I’m also including an article and photos of Harry at the Invictus Games Team UK unveiling at the Tower of London today. Harry met with 90 servicemen and women who will compete in 12 adaptive sports in Toronto in September at the 3rd Invictus Games.
“Speaking to the UK team, the prince said: ‘It’s going to be good. Whether you get a medal or not you are going to have an amazing experience. Suck up all the experiences. For your family, your loved one, your friends, everything has changed too. Their aspirations may have been changed as much as yours. They will have made sacrifices too. This is a chance to thank them too. Thank them for the sacrifices they have also made.
“‘No matter how you are going to do I promise you that you will feel a million dollars. Whether you cross the finishing line first it last will make no difference to me or to anyone. It’s in our blood to win, it’s in our nature to win. [but] whether you are blowing smoke out of your a*** as your cross the line makes no difference. It is what you are achieving, what you have achieved to get there.
“‘This is a real opportunity for you guys to be congratulated and recognised for the amazing things you have done and the amazing things you are doing and will go on to do. This is the last stepping stone and as I see it there are many different paths you can now follow.'”
On a purely superficial note, Harry looks really good in his black Invictus shirt and olive trousers. I mean, no wonder Meghan wanted to get back to KP from Pippa’s wedding as quickly as possible.
