The royal wedding is just over a month away and there are still many unanswered questions. We have some of the top 10 burning questions about Prince Harry’s wedding and some rumors that could provide answers!
Since the royal wedding was announced on May 19 in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, we’ve had endless questions. It’s tough to know all of the answers about their wedding.
The palace is keeping many elements secret and the couple was to surprise the public too. People in the UK have even gone as far as to bet on some subjects as well.
With more details getting revealed almost every day, there are still some burning questions on the mind of royal fans. Here are some of the top 10 burning questions we have about Prince Harry’s wedding:
Question 1: How many people will attend at the Prince Harry’s wedding?
It was recently published that all of the royal wedding invitations had been sent out. The wedding is going to be a grand affair and members of the public will be invited to greet the couple outside. The size of the venue will limit the guest list at the ceremony.
The royal wedding which took place at St. Paul’s Cathedral accommodated 1900 guests. Will and Kate’s wedding will be significantly larger than Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s.
St. George’s Chapel that has been selected for this wedding only hold around 800 people at maximum. This was the venue for Charles and Camilla ceremony in 2005. It’s important to expect a scaled-back Royal Wedding when compared to Will and Kate.
Question 2: Who will be Prince Harry’s fiancee’s designer?
This is commonly one of the most popular gambling items for a royal wedding. It is also the case with Prince Harry’s wedding.
Meghan is widely known as a fashionista. It is tough to actually tell who her designer may be. There’s extensive speculation that she may use a United States designer.
Prince Harry’s fiancee Meghan has named a number of designers when her character Rachel Zane was married on Suits. She suggested that Christos Costarellos, Delphine Manivet and Ellie Sab.J. Mendel were all favorites. These could easily make their way into the running as her designer.
Furthermore, Meghan has been known to include unique styles in her wardrobe. She announced her engagement in a Canadian coat and has showcased American and UK fashions in many appearances. Her designer could be an absolute wildcard and it is continuing to leave people guessing.
Question 3: Who are the bridesmaids at Prince Harry’s wedding?
No one will know who the bridesmaids for Meghan Markle will be until the Prince Harry’s wedding.
There is much speculation that some of Meghan celebrity friends like Serena Williams, Misha Nonoo, Linday Roth or Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney could be involved. Other notables include Priyanka Chopra, Janina Gavankar and more. At this time it’s very difficult to tell who will be a bridesmaid.
One person that we can likely rule out as a bridesmaid at the wedding is the Duchess Kate. She will be giving birth to a child in April and very unlikely to be in the wedding party for that reason. Even though the two have bonded since the engagement, it’s unlikely that Kate will be a bridesmaid.
Again, we will have to wait till Prince Harry’s wedding!
Question 4: Who will be the groomsmen for Prince Harry?
The same story is true for Prince Harry at his royal wedding.
Generally speaking, royal weddings didn’t usually have a best man. Prince Charles and Prince William chose brothers as supporters. As these two broke with tradition it’s likely that Harry will also have a supporter.
The best speculation is that his brother Prince William shall be the best man or supporter. Harry was chosen as Will’s supporter for his wedding and it would only make sense of his brother returned the sentiment.
Again, make a good guess about the best man for Prince Harry’s wedding!
Question 5: Are his niece and nephew involved?
Princess Charlotte and Prince George were involved with Pippa Middleton’s wedding in May of last year. The two did their duties elegantly as pages. They are perhaps the best decision as the pages for this Prince Harry’s wedding as well. As they’ll be a year older it’s likely that they can be a bit more behaved.
Prince George actually had a bit of trouble stepping on Pippa’s train and had to take a timeout. Prince Harry may also involve his younger cousins Zara Phillips Tindall, Isla Phillips and Mia Tindall. They could step in as pages as well or have some involvement.
Another child that is quite likely to have an invitation and role in the wedding is Isabel Veronica “Ivy” Mulroney who is the four-year-old daughter of Meghan Markle’s good friend Jessica Mulroney.
Question 6: What will their wedding rings look like?
Prince Harry’s fiancee Meghan went outside of the norm choosing an old diamond engagement ring. The stones that she received were from Diana’s jewelry. It’s very unlikely that the same type of flash will be present in their wedding rings.
The engagement ring was designed by Prince Harry using two diamonds from Princess Diana’s collection and a center diamond from Botswana. This country is where both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first traveled together on a relief mission visiting earlier in the year.
Meghan had a wedding ring that interlocked with her engagement ring in her marriage to Trevor Engelson. It is somewhat likely that this same trend will continue with the band that she selects here.
One of the traditions that has persisted with Prince Harry wedding rings is the use of Welsh gold. The tradition of using gold from mines in Wales has persisted since the year 1923. Prince Harry’s great-grandparents began with these types of bands and this is very likely where they will source them here.
Question 7: What title will they be awarded after Prince Harry’s wedding?
After Prince Harry’s wedding it’s very likely that he will receive a title just as Will and Kate did at their own wedding. When they are married Meghan Markle will receive the title of Duchess as and Prince Harry will receive the title of Duke.
Usually this is a queens wedding present on the wedding day and there should be no different. The speculated title that the two will be given is the title for Sussex. This has been a long vacant area. The son of King George the third was the last to be the Duke of Sussex.
Their full titles after the Prince Harry wedding will most likely be HRH, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex and HRH, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Of course we won’t know their official titles until the announcement at the wedding.
Question 8: Where is the reception for the Prince Harry’s wedding going to be held?
There are said to be two official receptions happening for the wedding day. After the two say their vows at St. George’s Chapel, they will move to two parties throughout the evening.
The first reception starting around at noon is going to take place at St. George’s Hall, located in Windsor Castle and it’s the largest room.
With a space of 180 feet long and 29 feet wide, it offers ample space for the guests. Prince Harry’s wedding will welcome around 600 to this first reception. This is a space that the queen often uses for formal dinners. It will be quite an exclusive luncheon and this is likely where the Queen will make the announcement of the title.
The second reception will be a much more private affair. Around 200 guests attending at Prince Harry’s wedding will go to the Frogmore house, located in Windsor England around half a mile from the Windsor Castle. This is a historical estate with many gardens, walks, bridges and trees.
There will likely be ample photo opportunities here. This is the venue that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose for their engagement photos as well.
This isn’t the first time that Frogmore house has been used for a wedding reception either. In 2008 Peter Phillips and Autumns Kelly used it for their wedding as well.
Question 9: Which famous figures are attending at Prince Harry’s wedding?
There has been extensive controversy as to who is invited to the royal wedding. William and Kate had a number of British celebrities in attendance like David Beckham, Sir Elton John and more.
Some of the most likely glamorous pals of Meghan Markle that will likely come on invitation, including Jessica Mulroney, Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, Millie Mackintosh and more.
Surprisingly Harry has also sent out invitations to his ex-girlfriends Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas. Both got invitations to Prince Harry’s wedding and will be attending for sure.
Other famous news has included that the Spice Girls all received invitations to the Prince Harry wedding. Sir Elton John will also be attending the wedding and had to cancel two shows in Las Vegas to do so.
There is some speculation that Barack Obama may also be attending the wedding. This caused a bit of a stir as Donald Trump was not invited to their wedding.
The former president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle spent time with Harry at the Invictus games. The government even pleaded with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to invite the Trump to their wedding.
Other rumors that are circulating include the chance that Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters may be attending to the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wedding for performing as well.
Although there is no fully confirmed guest list yet, there will certainly be some very famous figures attending. The entertainment for the Prince Harry wedding has not yet been confirmed either. There’s a very good chance that a number of the music stars attending could give exciting performances.
Question 10: Who is attending from Meghan Markle’s Family?
Prince Harry’s fiancee Meghan Markle has a tricky relationship with her family. Her half-sister Samantha has consistently been in the media downplaying the validity of the marriage.
Megan’s parents also divorced when she was a young age. She has a half-brother who is older as well that is unlikely to attend the royal wedding.
Then burning question: who is attending at the Prince Harry’s wedding?
What is perhaps the most surprising is Meghan father has never officially met Prince Harry. Her father Thomas Markle Sr. is not one to comment in the media and typically stays at his estate in Mexico. He is rumored to be walking Meghan down the aisle. Supposedly he has only communicated with Prince Harry through e-mail but is in full support of Prince Harry wedding with her daughter.
Meghan Markle’s mother will most definitely be in attendance. Doria Ragland met Prince Harry at the Invictus games. She is a yielded teacher in Los Angeles and Meghan considers her to be one of her best friends.
Meghan already feels like one of the royal family. Although she is not typically that close to her own family, the Royals met her at the family retreat at Christmas.
Christmas at Sandringham is generally an event reserved for those who had married into the royal family. Meghan was the first to attend as only a fiancé. Some have speculated that her time at Christmas was like having a family that she has never had.
Her decision not to invite some of her family members and her instant involvement with the royal family and their events actually has drawn some backlash with her half-sister Samantha. Some people have a judgement that Markle was generally “Too busy” for her family in the past but she has made herself available to the royal family.
Although there is a slight rift between Meghan Markle and her family members at the time of Prince Harry wedding, hopefully the family that she has chosen to invite will support the celebration.
Hopefully answering some of these burning questions about Prince Harry’s wedding have helped you get a bit better prepared for the upcoming May. Stay tuned for more news as it’s revealed coming up to the date!
We don’t want to spoil the entire celebration for you but knowing the magnitude of this event is important.
