Many people around the world are looking forward to the big royal wedding. The wedding will be a family affair, and Meghan’s father and her mother will both attend the wedding. Plans have already been made for both families to spend time with each other before the big day. The royal wedding is planned to take place on May 19th at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor.
Meghan’s parents are scheduled to arrive in the UK at least a week before the big day. This would be the first time that Meghan’s dad will meet Harry in person. The two have spoken on the phone when Harry asked Thomas’s permission to marry Meghan. But a one-on-one meeting has not happened yet. However, the wait is finally over. Harry has already spent some time with Meghan’s mother. Most notably, the two met during the Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada. This was the first time that the Prince and Meghan’s mother were seen in public together.
Harry and Meghan have also decided to stick with tradition on the wedding day. They will both have separate dinners with their families. However, it’s not yet clear where Meghan will spend the night. In 2011, Prince Williams and his bride Kate Middleton stayed at the Royal Suite of the Goring Hotel, a luxurious hotel in London. We are not sure if Meghan and Harry will do the same thing but it’s very likely that the two will stay close to Windsor.
An insider within the Royal family told us that Meghan had chosen to spend a quiet night before the wedding with her family. The statement also noted that it’s been quite some time since Meghan and her family had been together and this was the perfect opportunity to do so. Meghan is also expected to host a small dinner for her close friends on the wedding day.
As for Harry, well, he will spend the night with his father Prince Charles and his mother Camilla. His best man and brother Prince William together with his wife Catherine will also be present during the dinner. It’s very likely too that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip will host a dinner at Windsor Castle for Harry. If the wedding would be a state event, the Queen would host dignitaries.
But the wedding is, as we have already stated, a family affair. It looks like the Queen is indeed looking forward to spending time with her family before the wedding. Harry and Meghan have already spent a lot of time meeting people after their engagement but it’s expected that they will do the same thing on the wedding day. Nonetheless, everything is now set as the big day approaches.
