Why Meghan and Harry Are Unlikely to Use the Same Horse-Drawn Wedding Carriage as William and Kate

Duchess Catherine
Why Meghan and Harry Are Unlikely to Use the Same Horse-Drawn Wedding Carriage as William and Kate Meghan Markle‘s royal carriage awaits. But which one will she ride in on her wedding day? When Meghan takes her first royal carriage ride alongside Prince Harry following their wedding ceremony in Windsor on May 19, it will be an open-top affair, so that well-wishers lining the roads outside Windsor Castle can get a clear view of the happy couple. But which carriage, exactly? The choice rests with Harry’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth, who houses all the carriages in the Royal Mews. (Located on the grounds of Buckingham Palace, the Royal Mews is a sort of parking garage for everything from horses to carriages to state cars.) “My guess is that it will be an Ascot Landau,” suggests Jo

Prince Harry
Royal tests Meghan has to pass to marry Harry Her wedding day may be just a little over a month away, but Meghan Markle still has two ceremonies to go through before she marries Prince Harry. The 36-year-old actress, who is due to marry Prince Harry on May 19th at St George’s Chapel, will have to be baptised and confirmed before she can walk down the aisle. According to reports, the former Suits star will spend the next month immersing herself in the religious traditions of the Church of England. Meghan was brought up a Christian, however due to the fact that she’s marrying the grandson of the Head of the Church of England, she is being baptised and confirmed into the faith. The American actress can either choose to have water trickled down her forehead when she is baptised or b

Prince Charles
Charles and Camilla's 'Aussie love child' shocked at royal news He’s the man who claims to be Prince Charles and Camilla’s secret ‘love child’ and now Simon Dorante-Day has opened up on the royal couple’s hectic trip to Australia. Simon, who sensationally revealed in October that he plans to take Charles and Camilla to court to prove he’s their son, said he believes he’s the reason Camilla decided to cancel her part in the tour altogether. Last week, it was reported that Camilla has pulled out of the trip to Australia, where she was supposed to be attending the opening of the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. The Duchess’ travel sickness was blamed for the late cancelation, with sources claiming Camilla isn’t very good with such long-haul flights. However, despite the fact that

American princesses: 10 women who found love with royal heirs

Prince Harry
WALLIS SIMPSON AND EDWARD VIII Although she was still married to her second husband when they met in 1931, the Prince of Wales couldn’t help but be drawn to Wallis Simpson. Charming, sophisticated, always impeccably dressed and with an American’s instinctive lack of servility towards the monarchy, she was unlike anyone the Prince had ever met in the court presided over by his father King George V, a man who didn’t believe in putting jokes in speeches or appearing in public without a top hat. After his father’s death, Edward reigned for only 10 months, giving up the throne in 1936 to forge a new life as the Duke of Windsor with his beloved Wallis. The advent of a less conservative social order has meant history has judged his striking American wife more kindly than was the case then. Wa

Back to school: Meghan Markle attending Princess lessons ahead of Royal Wedding MEGHAN Markle is going through ‘finishing school’ to turn her into a princess. Ahead of tying the knot with Prince Harry, the US actress is taking lessons in etiquette and elocution. A royal source told the Daily Star Sunday: “Meghan is on a crash course with a trusted coach used by the royals. “There’ll be no stone unturned as in less than 12 weeks all eyes will be on her – there is no room for error.  “Harry has been brought up living and breathing all this. “He has a lifetime of nurturing and breeding behind him but Meghan has a matter of weeks to learn what she needs to be accepted at the royal court. “If she was left without guidance, the marriage would begin in the same vein as Diana and Charles

Prince Harry
How Meghan Markle's Fashion Is More 'Accessible' Than Kate Middleton's Meghan Markle has done much more than just win Prince Harry's heart—she's made quite the impact on the fashion industry as well and could be changing some of the perspectives of the royal family a whole. The so-called "Meghan Effect" has been in full swing since Markle and Harry announced their plans to marry at the end of September, with pieces Markle wearing causing a stir online, and in many cases selling out. The phenomenon is one that is reminiscent of the one that has followed her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, since her own arrival into the royal family back on 2011. Another way the Meghan Effect has impacted the industry has been through the increased traffic to fashion blogs that are devoted to the styles

How Princess Estelle WON Hearts of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during Sweden Visit?

Duchess Catherine
Meet the Princess who charmed William and Kate during Sweden visit Meet the most influential royal you have probably never heard of, helping to keep republicanism at bay in her native Sweden. She is Princess Estelle, the five-year-old Duchess of Ostergotland, who charmed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their recent visit to Stockholm. The vivacious youngster is being credited with a surge in the approval rating of the Swedish royals, which was languishing at just 50 per cent for many years until recently. A sex scandal which engulfed King Carl XVI Gustav, who marks 45 years on the throne this year, was partly to blame for their drop in popularity. Now his eldest daughter Victoria and her firstborn Estelle are winning over the public. When Crown Princess Victoria, 40, an...
