Meghan in Black Gown as she Joins her Prince for Pippa's Wedding Reception

The society wedding of the year took place yesterday when Pippa Middleton and James Matthews exchanged vows at St. Mark's, Englefield surrounded by family and friends. We were very much hoping to see Meghan accompany Harry to the ceremony, instead Harry arrived with William. Following the wedding, Harry drove back to Kensington Palace to get his girlfriend to take her to the glittering reception. At this point, it's looking unlikely we'll see any photos from the reception, however this snap of the couple en route to the party offers a little glimpse.

The Sun reports Meghan was invited to the entire event, however Harry and Meghan wanted to ensure they didn't upstage the bride (reporters remain varied across the media as to whether Meghan was invited to the ceremony).

'The pair were seen grinning as they made a subtle entrance in the nick of time to catch the spectacular Spitfire display. A source said: “Harry is extremely fond of his sister-in-law. They had a wonderful time at Kate and William’s wedding. “He knew this was all about Pippa’s big day and he and Meghan jointly decided they didn’t want to upstage her.
 “Harry went all the way to London to get Meghan and bring her to the party. He was determined not to upstage Pippa but also really wanted them to enjoy the wedding together,. He left as discreetly as possible and travelled with her all the way back up, showing just how serious he is about her. He didn’t want Meghan having to arrive along, without him alongside her, at the reception.”

Prince Harry arriving with Prince William. They exchanged smiles and jokes as they made their way to the church. A couple of tweeters mentioned it almost looked like William could have been saying "You're next Harry" :)

The bride looked beautiful in a Giles Deacon gown, below the beaming happy couple after the ceremony.

The Sun reports Meghan was elegant in a floor-length black dress, sunglasses and a white jacket for the lavish reception on the grounds of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury. "Music could be heard belting out from the glass marquee from a live band on Saturday evening, including jazz renditions of Call on Me by Eric Prydz and The White Stripes banger Seven Nation Army. Best man Spencer Matthews, the younger brother of groom James, could be heard earning rounds of applause speech which took place at the late hour of 11pm." Below, a look at the Spitfire flypast guests enjoyed after a lavish dinner taken by @journalistemily.

The Mail reports William, Kate, Harry, Meghan and of course the bride and groom danced the night away until 4 a.m at the striking glass marquee erected on the Middleton property. "Hundreds of VIP guests watched as footage of Pippa Middleton and her new husband was beamed onto the back of her family's £6million Berkshire mansion in a dazzling display during the reception on Saturday night. The newlyweds' faces were projected onto the windows of Bucklebury Manor along with psychedelic lights and, at one point, what appeared to be the silhouette of a shapely dancing woman against a green background. At one point James was shown in his hunting gear - an apparent nod to his lengthy campaign to win the affections of his bride - as guests partied until 4am."

It very much sounds like a wonderful evening was enjoyed by all. It's wonderful to see Meghan by Harry's side for the reception - it was also an excellent opportunity for her to get to know and meet more of their circle of friends. Guests changed into glamorous evening looks for the reception, I'm sure Meghan's gown was the epitome of elegance. All in all it was a lovely wedding. I don't know about you, but I'm certainly thinking another royal wedding would be simply fabulous *hint hint Harry* :). We leave you with another look at Mr and Mrs Matthews!

Meghan Enjoys Beauty Treatments in Soho Ahead of Pippa's Wedding!

It's the weekend we've been discussing for months! Meghan arrived at Heathrow Airport from Toronto on Tuesday night and was whisked straight to Kensington Palace where she is staying with Prince Harry this week ahead of the couple attending the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews in Berkshire tomorrow. Meghan was photographed today leaving a spa in Soho following beauty treatments including a soft pink manicure.

Mail Online

More from the Mail Online:

'Although anticipation is building over the dress Pippa will wear for her wedding to James Matthews, there is just as much buzz around the outfit the American will don. But so far her plans have been kept under wraps, although it is understood she will wear a hat. 
Meanwhile, the Church of England has confirmed Ms Markle and Prince Harry could wed at Westminster Abbey if they were to get married. But the Prince would still require the Queen’s permission and it is believed the Archbishop of Canterbury would need to provide a special licence for any potential nuptials. Well-placed sources say the relationship is extremely serious, and that Meghan’s invitation to Pippa’s wedding is the ultimate endorsement, meaning she could be a potential princess.'

Meghan opted for a casual look with, a baseball cap, leggings and a jacket. Meghan carried the Mulberry Clifton Rosewater Small Classic Grain bag. The £725 piece is described: "The Clifton is a compact, understated shoulder bag that cleverly camouflages an organiser's paradise underneath its neat exterior. Internal compartments provide ample room for essentials, and the chain strap can be adjusted and styled in different ways. Signature press studs and a subtle Mulberry logo are the final embellishments."


With thanks to Meghan's Mirror Meghan's trainers are the Nike Flex style. They are available at 6 p.m. for $56.

Meghan on the cover of several of tomorrow's newspapers (with some rather "rear" focused headlines..).

Of course we're all looking forward to (hopefully) seeing what Meghan wears tomorrow. The Telegraph's Bethan Holt writes:

'Meghan Markle has reportedly arrived in London ahead of her appearance at Pippa Middleton's wedding to James Matthews on Saturday. Her invite to the society wedding of the year is the latest sign of her growing closeness to Prince Harry- and the Middleton-Cambridge clan. Her attendance at the ceremony, due to take place at St Mark's church in Englefield, Berkshire, will also add a new sartorial element to the day besides the sleek Middleton triumvirate of Pippa, Carole and Kate. As a relatively little-known style entity, Markle's choice of lookwill be a key moment in her gradual transition from  philanthropic, social-media star to de facto member of the royal family.'

According to Lainey Gossip, Meghan has had several fittings for the event:

'According to E! News, Meghan will be at the ceremony, the reception, and the after-party; in other words, she’s invited to all parts of the wedding, not just the reception as was initially suggested. E! News is also reporting that Meghan’s had two fittings in Toronto for the event.'

Whilst we still don't know for certain if we'll see Meghan at the ceremony, I think it's safe to say she'll likely opt for an elegant, classic look most likely teamed with a hat for the occasion. For Meghan's first polo appearance she opted for the Antonio Berardi Double Breasted Sleeveless Dress.

Below we see the feminine Brocade Insert Pencil Dress by the designer. This dress would look amazing with the right hat.

Meghan is very close friends with designer Misha Nonoo, according to the Telegraph: "Misha Nonoo, the wife of Old Etonian Alexander Gilkes, has been credited for introducing Markle to Prince Harry so it would only be natural for Markle to replay the favour by wearing a piece from Nonoo's collection which she shows in New York." Perhaps the designer will create a bespoke look?

Another brand Meghan favours is 'label of the moment', Self Portrait. Their much-loved Azaelea dress would be a lovely choice with a crisp jacket.

Do you have any style predictions for Meghan tomorrow?

Harry and Meghan Hug for Second Polo Appearance!

What a treat this weekend has been! Meghan Markle made her second polo appearance as Harry participated in the Audi Polo at Coworth Park once again today. Our favourite photographer James Whatling covered the event and managed to capture fantastic snaps of the happy couple hugging before the game commenced. I'm not one to jump the gun, but I think you'll agree, it's very clear to see they are very much in love.

Harry slipped away from the crowd to share a moment with Meghan who likely gave him words of encouragement ahead of the game.

Yesterday, Meghan was much more visible alongside spectators including Prince Harry's confidant and mentor Mark Dyer. She was all smiles as she cheered on her Prince in a very stylish Antonio Berardi high-low dress and a crisp white blazer. It's excellent to see her there again supporting Harry - they are clearly prioritising spending time together and making their "long distance" relationship work.

Prince Harry was joined by Prince William today. They played in support of two charities particularly close to William's heart - Tusk Trust and Royal Marsden.

They were delighted to lead their team to victory in front a star-studded crowd.

Stars in attendance included Luke Evans and Emma Stone.

Meghan wore a tan trench coat and a white dress underneath.

As photos are incredibly limited, it's difficult to positively identify Meghan's pieces, however the team at Meghan's Mirror believe she wore the Burberry Silk Bishop Sleeved Trench. Crafted from lightweight silk and dyed in classic beige, the trench is belted at the waist. It's currently available at StyleBop. We know Meghan is a huge fan of Burberry and a classic trench is another stylish addition to her wardrobe.

Meghan sported her Oliver Peoples The Row O Malley NYC Sunglasses. They are described as "A collaboration between two American labels celebrated for subtle sophistication, Oliver Peoples The Row designs feminine renditions of iconic frame silhouettes, all featuring custom lenses crafted of colored mineral glass." They retail for $450 at Barneys

The cover of The Sun features a very romantic photo of Meghan and Harry sharing a kiss.

Our reader Bluhare referenced this excellent tweet from royal account The Regal Look. We hear your sentiments and echo them :)
