The press secretary provided an update on Friday (May 4). PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Meghan Markle “We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public,” the update reads. “The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun.” Read the full outline inside… We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public. The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun. We said from the outset that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle were keen to make sure that members of the public would have the opportunity to feel part of the celebrations on their wedding day. This is their way of expressing their gratitude for the messages of support they have received from around the UK, the Commonwealth, Ms. Markle’s home country of the United States, and right around the world. In today’s briefing I want to share more details of what people can expect to see in the day’s leading up to the wedding, and on the day itself, and explain what the public can expect in Windsor. The first thing I would like to share is that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to welcoming Ms. Markle’s parents to Windsor for the wedding. Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry’s family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day. Both of the bride’s parents will have important roles in the wedding. On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by car to Windsor Castle. Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George’s Chapel. Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion. In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as Best Man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother’s family in his wedding. All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day. As we said back in November, this wedding will be guided by tradition, allowing everyone to celebrate what makes Royal Weddings so special, but also one which reflects the personalities of Prince Harry and Ms. Markle. We have been announcing details over the last couple of months and in the final week ahead of the wedding you can expect to hear more about the arrangements, including: The Instrument of Consent; Details of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys; The work of florist Philippa Craddock and the Crown Estate gardeners who have been growing and preparing the flowers that will fill the church; An update from Claire Ptak, the baker who will make the wedding cake, and the chefs who have been working in the Palace kitchens to make the final preparations and; We will publish the full Order of Service on the website on Saturday morning so members of the public can follow the service at home. I will now take you through the high level outline of what you can expect to see from the evening of Friday 18th May. The key moment for the day before will be the arrival of the bride at her accommodation. We expect this to happen early evening. On the day itself we expect Windsor to be very busy. The council has worked with partners including Thames Valley Police to plan what will be a fantastic day of celebrations. As the Royal Borough of Windsor has said, work is well underway to ensure the occasion is a memorable and joyous one for all involved and they are working closely with a wide range of partners. Rail operators will be putting on extra trains and there will be park and walk and park and float services to help people get into town. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and book all travel arrangements early so they can make the most of their trip. I would very much appreciate the media’s assistance in spreading the message that visitors to Windsor will have a chance to be part of a very special day, but those who will be heading to the town really do need to plan their journeys carefully. The Royal Borough has confirmed that preparations include: A 6,000 space pre-booked car parking area at the Review Ground, just off the Long Walk; Food stalls and facilities, including big screens showing live footage of the wedding and Procession, on the Long Walk and in Alexandra Gardens; Viewing areas along the whole Procession Route (Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road and the Long Walk); A team of 140 Royal Borough Ambassadors have volunteered to help steward the event and assist visitors throughout the day; The town centre will be decorated with bunting and ceremonial banners along parts of the Procession Route and; Live entertainment from local groups throughout the town centre. In order to make sure everyone can get through expected traffic, the members of the public who have been invited to be inside the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding will be arriving from around 0900hrs. As a reminder, 1,200 people have been nominated by Lord Lieutenants from across the country for their work supporting their communities. Many of these people are sharing their stories with their local media and supporters – the couple are very pleased that their wedding has provided a platform to celebrate the inspiring work of community and youth leaders from around the UK. The first thing these people gathered will see on the morning of the wedding will be the arrival of guests between 0930hrs and 1100hrs. Guests will be arriving at the Round Tower by coach and will be seen walking to the South Door of St George’s Chapel. Members of The Royal Family will begin to arrive from 1120hrs, and enter St George’s Chapel via the Galilee Porch. Some will be on foot, and others will arrive by car. Prince Harry and his brother The Duke of Cambridge will arrive at St George’s Chapel most likely by foot and will enter via the West Steps. This will allow Their Royal Highnesses to acknowledge all of the people gathered in the Castle precincts, including the 200 charity representatives gathered in the Horseshoe Cloister at the bottom of the steps. Also around the time Royal Family arrivals begin, a pooled media facility will cover Ms. Markle and Ms. Ragland’s departure from the bride’s overnight location. We expect the journey into the Castle to take them along part of the Long Walk, allowing members of the public gathered there to see the car as it passes. There will also be a brief stop at the Castle where Ms. Ragland will head onto the Chapel and Ms. Markle will be joined by some of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys before she continues her journey to the church, where she will enter via the West Steps. The Service will take around an hour, and we look forward to announcing more details of this in the weeks ahead. After the Service has concluded, the newly married couple will process out of the church and acknowledge the 200 representatives of Prince Harry’s charities gathered in the Cloister. The couple are delighted that these people who will be such an important part of their official work in the years to come will be the first people they see after their wedding. As the couple step into their Carriage, close family members will gather on the West Steps to wave them off on their Procession. As a reminder, we expect the Carriage Procession to take just under 25 minutes. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to this part of the day. It will be their chance to express their gratitude for the goodwill and warm wishes they have received from all quarters in the months since their engagement. Members of the congregation will file out of the church onto the grass to see the start of the Procession before walking to the reception at St George’s Hall. All guests will be attending the reception. The public elements of the event will be over at this stage. The final thing you can expect to see is the Bride and Groom departing Windsor Castle for the evening reception at Frogmore House. In the days that follow, we will facilitate interviews with some of those who have been involved in the wedding, as happened in 2011, for example with the hairdresser and dressmaker. The formal photographs, which will be taken by Alexi Lubomirski, will be released during the week......»»

The former wife of Prince Andrew was shunned from the royal family after it was revealed in 2010 that she had offered to sell access to her ex-husband for hundreds of thousands of dollars. She was not invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding in 2011 due to the scandal. Sarah is the mother of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, the cousins of the the groom Prince Harry. They were spotted arriving for the wedding with their father. “Harry always planned to invite [Sarah]. She is the mother of [Princess] Eugenie and [Princess] Beatrice, both of whom he is close to,” a source told E! News. “Harry has always been fond of Ms. Ferguson and he would never want to exclude a family member.” “While there may be people within the households who would rather she didn’t attend, Harry has not had to fight to invite her. Every decision Harry and Meghan make for this wedding is their own. They have the freedom to do as they please,” the source added. FYI: Sarah is wearing an Emma Louise Design dress and jacket. Beatrice is wearing a Roksanda dress. Eugenie is wearing a Gainsbourg dress......»»

A Technical Glitch On The Royal Family"s Website May"ve Spoiled Prince William & Kate Middleton"s Baby Name Reveal!

Did a technical glitch just spoil the royal baby name reveal?? As you surely know, Prince William and Kate Middleton have stayed shockingly tight lipped about their third little one's moniker, following the young prince's birth on April 23. However, it seems that the royal family's website may've inadvertently revealed the news. Related: Twitter Praises Kate's Post [...] Did a technical glitch just spoil the royal baby name reveal?? As you surely know, Prince William and Kate Middleton have stayed shockingly tight lipped about their third little one's moniker, following the young prince's birth on April 23. However, it seems that the royal family's website may've inadvertently revealed the news. Related: Twitter Praises Kate's Post Baby Glow! Apparently, there are designated pages for each of the prominent members of the Windsor clan. Viewers of the site can access these pages by typing in a name separated by dashes following the main site's URL -- royal.uk.! Now, if you type in Prince George and Princess Charlotte's names, you'll come across an "access denied" screen. So, why is this important??? Well, this error may've proven that William and Kate have named their youngest... Albert! It's said that if you type in royal.uk/prince-albert, you'll witness an "access denied" screen pop up. If you try this link with a different name, such as other frontrunner Prince Arthur, you get a "Page Not Found" screen. Don't believe us?? Find the telling evidence for yourself (below)! The Prince Albert link: The Prince Arthur link: We can't say we're surprised that Albert is likely the little one's name. For starters, British bookmakers have listed the moniker with 5-1 odds while taking bets. Not to mention, Albert has been a prominent name in the royal family for some time. Most notably, Albert was the beloved husband of Queen Victoria -- thus it's popped up among several of the full names of her distinguished descendants. Queen Elizabeth's father's birth name was Albert, until he took the royal name King George VI upon his brother's abdication. Both Prince Andrew and Prince Harry have Albert as one of their middle names. You see?? It seems right that a baby Bertie joins the royals at Kensington Palace. (FUN FACT: Queen Victoria was raised at Kensington Palace. The pieces are all coming together!) Nonetheless, we won't know the royal tot's name until the palace makes an official announcement! Stay tuned!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle Has Some Seriously Strict Rules To Follow Now That She"s A Duchess!

Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry [...] Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry & Meghan Will Visit Thomas Markle In Mexico! In fact, there are all sorts of royal rules Miz Markle is now required to follow as a member of the Windsor family. We're being completely serious. Not only is Meghan's style now dictated by royal decree, but also the way she walks and talks. For a breakdown of all the royal restrictions, be sure to proceed (below)... 1. Under no circumstance is Meghan to take a selfie. It's said that the 36-year-old Duchess once told a fan that she and Harry are "not allowed to do selfies." Apparently, this rule is meant to encourage commoners to make eye contact and conversation with the royals. 2. As selfies are a no-no, so is personal social media usage. As you surely know, all news regarding Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton comes from the Kensington Royal Twitter and Instagram pages. Thus, ahead of her marriage into the family, Markle had her IG and lifestyle blog go dark. 3. Meghan is to keep her signature to herself. NO AUTOGRAPHS! In order to prevent forgery, the Suits alum is not allowed to sign any autographs. 4. Dark and/or colored nail polish is prohibited. This explains why Meghan wore Essie's Ballet Slippers pink polish at the wedding. Oh, and it's also Queen Elizabeth's favorite color. 5. Royals must ALWAYS travel with mourning clothes. This rule was instated after the then Princess Elizabeth and husband Prince Philip were blindsided by King George VI's death while abroad in Africa. The twosome were forced to travel from Africa to the United Kingdom in regular clothes. Nowadays, royals must always have a set of funeral clothes packed in order to be respectful. 6. No matter what occasion, female family members must always curtsy to the Queen. At official events, Meghan is also expected to curtsy to anyone who outranks her. 7. Short hemlines are a no-go! It's believed that the Queen disapproves of skirts that are more than an inch or two above the knee. So Meghan better toss out those tiny red carpet numbers from her Hollywood days. 8. Speaking of Hollywood, Meghan seemingly can no longer pursue an acting career. She represents the British people now, so she has an image to uphold (and we doubt an acting gig in Tinseltown will help with that). 9. Meghan is discouraged from voting in British elections. Although UK Parliament says that it's not against the law in Britain for royalty to vote, it's viewed to be unconstitutional. 10. Markle can no longer cross her legs -- in public, at least. She'll be expected to perfect the "Duchess Slant" made famous by Princess Diana and proudly carried on by the Duchess of Cambridge. 11. Meghan will have to throw away her wedges, as the Queen despises them! 12. Assigned seating for life! At any royal family gathering, Meghan will always be expected to sit next to husband Harry. 13. Dinnertime is at 8:30 pm! When dining with Harry's monarch grandmother, Meghan will have to be ready at 8:30 pm to eat. The meal will last no later than 10 pm. 14. Also, Meghan isn't allowed to eat before OR after the Queen. Guests dining with the Queen can't start eating until the monarch begins chowing down. However, once she is done, so is the rest of the dinner table. 15. Meghan can't just walk into a royal room. During family functions, there's a strict entrance line, which is as follows: Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Duchess Camila, Prince William, Duchess Kate, and then most likely, Harry and Meghan. 16. If the Queen's awake, so is Meghan! If Meghan crashes with Queen Elizabeth at all, she is required to stay up until the longtime royal falls asleep. 17. Monopoly has been banned! Supposedly, the Duke of York Prince Andrew previously revealed that the royals are "not allowed to play Monopoly at home," as "it gets too vicious." 18. In order to avoid food poisoning, Meghan can no longer enjoy shellfish. Now, not EVERYONE in the royal family adheres to this rule, but the Queen still does!! Man, oh man. We hope Meghan has this list memorized!! We're wishing her only the best as she embarks on her new royal life! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle Breaks Tradition & Gives Speech At Royal Wedding Reception — "I Finally Found My Prince"

Following her nuptials to Prince Harry on Saturday, the new Duchess of Sussex said a few words during the nighttime reception hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House. Related: Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding Album A source tells ET of her time on the mic: "The first person to get up and speak was Meghan. This was a real breach of tradition. Usually the bride doesn't talk. It is, of course, the father of the bride, but seeing there was no Thomas Markle, Meghan decided that she would speak." Adding: "She is an outspoken, self proclaimed feminist and I was told she wanted to have the chance to say in person a very big thank you to the royal family, which is exactly what she did." That's right, bb! Say what you need to say! The insider also says Meghan took time to praise her spouse after thanking his family: "When it came to her new husband, Harry, she said, 'I finally found my prince.' It was very romantic and very sweet." As for her own family, her mother got a special shout out: "I do know that she thanked her mother, not just for being there today, but for being there for her entire life. And I'm not sure what she said, if anything, about Thomas Markle." It's complicated! We're glad she took a moment to say what was on her heart! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Houston Man Electrocuted & Killed In Floodwaters While Checking On His Sister"s Cat: "He Probably Drowned. And Burned."

Another tragedy from the waters of Hurricane Harvey. A 25-year-old Houston man died on Tuesday after he was electrocuted by a live wire in floodwaters while trying to check up on his sister's stranded cat. Alyssa Pasek said her brother Andrew (above) was "just trying to be my hero" when he returned to their evacuated neighborhood to [...] Another tragedy from the waters of Hurricane Harvey. A 25-year-old Houston man died on Tuesday after he was electrocuted by a live wire in floodwaters while trying to check up on his sister's stranded cat. Alyssa Pasek said her brother Andrew (above) was "just trying to be my hero" when he returned to their evacuated neighborhood to check up on the cat she left behind on the second floor of her home. She explained to People: "[Andrew]'s fearless. That kid was so brave… He just really wanted to go and be the one to call me and tell me, ‘She's okay, she's fine, don't worry." Before evacuating her Houston home on Monday, Alyssa tried to convince her cat to come downstairs, but D'Artagnon, a 15-pound Maine Coon cat, refused. Related: Joel Osteen Has Helped Hurricane Harvey Victims Than You! The 27-year-old didn't have a cat carrier, so she put an automatic feeder and plenty of fresh water out for the feline. Alyssa was convinced the animal would be fine on its own, but her brother wasn't. Andrew, an Eagle Scout who frequently rescued stray animals he found on the street, called his sister Tuesday afternoon and said he was going to check on the cat. Alyssa recalled: "I said, ‘Okay, please be safe.' I asked how deep the water was — I was so afraid of him drowning. He told me he loved me and that was it." The Army Corps of Engineers had previously done a controlled release of the Addicks Reservoir, putting their neighbors' lawn knee-deep in water. Unfortunately, the power wasn't shut off and a live wire was dangling in the water Andrew began trekking through. Back in 2011, Andrew had plates and metal screws in his ankle from multiple surgeries due to a car accident. According to his mother JoDell, the current of the live wire was drawn straight to the metal. She explained: "Because he had plates and screws in his ankle, the minute that he stepped into the live water, it knocked him off his feet. His friend was walking behind him and Andrew pushed him away and said, ‘Don't touch me.' "He said, ‘I'm dying,' as he fell into this light post that must have had this live wire. The current went to his ankle and he lost his balance and he fell into the water." Andrew's friend ran to a nearby home and called 911 and notified the family. But because Andrew was in waters with a live current, rescuers could not get to him. JoDell continued: "They maybe could have resuscitated him if they could have gotten to him. But the power was turned on so they couldn't get to him. They could not go try and help him, He laid in that water. He probably drowned. And burned." OMG, so horrifying! Related: Tyler Perry Donates $1 Million To Hurricane Harvey Relief The mother says Andrew was in the water for over an hour-and-a-half before the power company turned off the power so his body could be retrieved. JoDell is rightfully "angry" at CenterPoint Energy in Houston for being responsible for a such a preventable tragedy. She noted: "They could have electrocuted someone else. It could have been a child. They flood the subdivisions, but they don't turn off the power. It's crazy." Mourning her son, she continued: "It breaks my heart. He was just a helper. He always wanted to help. He had a Jeep Cherokee with a tow bar and he was constantly helping people with their cars out of ditches. He was always helping." So awful. Our hearts go out to Andrew's loved ones and all of those devastated by the floods in Texas. [Image via Facebook.].....»»
