Your (Mad About Meghan) Royal Wedding Invite!


Little did I know when I started Mad About Meghan that just almost exactly a year later we would be less than two weeks away from Harry and Meghan's wedding. It feels like a good time to say a heartfelt thank you to those of you who have followed Meghan's journey thus far on the blog. A number of you have been in touch asking what my blogging plans for the day are; at 8 am BST I'm going to run a Live Blog covering the day and all the key moments as they happen. Later in the afternoon, I'll publish a separate blog post fully covering the ceremony, carriage procession and the reception (hopefully we'll see a photo or two). I'm very much considering a separate live blog covering the day before the royal wedding with stories and news as it becomes available; if you would like to see that please let me know! I hope you'll join me for what promises to be an unforgettable day for royal watchers. I look forward to joining you all on 19 May :)

    1. Super idea re Friday coverage; FYI, BBC & all Canadian Broadcasting Networks will be covering Saturday’s events as well as special programming in the next ten days. Interested persons can google “Royal Wedding coverage “.

  5. I am so excited and I am looking forward to Harry and Meghan's wedding! I started reading this blog way before the engagement last year, even before Harry made the famous statement. I used to go to other sites before Harry met Meghan but those sites were fair to other royal members but were mean to Meghan, so I decided to follow this one, happy to find you Charlotte and yes I accept your invitation! My husband and I will be watching this wonderful celebration together. My sister promised to join with and she will make an English Breakfast with eggs, sausage, baked beans, grilled tomato and some fruit, I can not wait!!

  15. I am RSVPing yes :) Would love to follow the coverage in the days before, as well.

    My friend and I are already planning our sleepover to catch the coverage bright and early on the American East Coast.

    Many, many thanks for all you do Charlotte. Your blogs are always a bright spot in my day.

  16. Charlotte, I accept your invitation. Thank you for doing a live blog for the wedding. It will be in the middle of the night my time, but I'll be wide awake and excited (and probably drinking strong coffee!) Your Kate and Meghan blogs are the most reliable for all the news. Thank you for a job well done.

    Charlotte, did you really expect anyone to turn down more coverage?

  27. Oh Charlotte, thank you a thousand times for doing this!!! Like the other folks here on the blog, I hope you won’t get worn out and that you’ll enjoy all the festivities too! I have to calculate what time I have to be up across the pond here in Nova Scotia - am thinking around 4 am if EST is 3 am. I’ve been saving a special bottle of wine for this occasion! I just have to make sure I recover from it in time to play the organ at church the following morning. I don’t think it would be appreciated if I did a face-plant on the keyboards during the service!

  34. Charlotte,
    Your invitation card is not only thoughtful and beautiful; it looks like the original the couple sent out. it also looks forward, by a positive twist of your care, to alter the bad mood, which goes up and down with one story or another out there in cyber space.

    My response even w/o RSVP requested - would have been a yes punctually, if it was two weeks ago. Only last week, did I find out I have to work on the 19th. I will miss my most favorite part of the event; the suspense of following the day from the morning until its completion. I will miss your posts and comments as events unfold, and the input of commenters. Well, I will be here by 6:00pm EST on May 19, God willing. By then, you may be having your well-deserved rest, about 10:00pm, UK time.

    I admit to have watched Kate’s entry into the Abbey and her walk-in the aisle, one too many times. It remains one of my top most favorite scenes. I hope there will be a memorable “magically immortal” moment from this wedding too. I was happy to have watched W&K’s wedding day from the very beginning, arrival of the guests, and especially the jubilant mood of the people waiting for the day, the groom and bride. If I remember correctly, the sun came out when she arrived at West Minister Abbey.

    May 20th, this blog will have a different name; the “Mad about Meghan” will change to…? Little did you know? In fact, you were ahead of it all, when many doubted. While it will be a new chapter forward, I will kind of miss the suspense which unfolded as “Mad About Meghan” blog. The constant insight of Eve-Germany and Surfer Girl who actively advocated on this blog for Meghan had been a lesson in optimism, intuition and consistency. Mr. D from UK, bluhare, Claudia and royal fun are all memorable. It had been one fun and informative ride while it sorted the many factors of society in the past and present. No one knows about the future; just hope it will be all good, and those who saw the good will hopefully find it all to be so.

    Best Wishes to all of you, this blog, the couple and the new future title of the blog.

    2. Eve from Germany8 May 2018 at 14:22

      Thanks, Anon 15!! As I still struggle with my personal life, I try to draw strength from moments like when Charlotte started the MAM blog and I just KNEW Meghan would become Harry´s wife, I just KNEW it. I knew she would immediately be eager to be out and meet people, get involved. I´m glad she´s proven my impression of her right so far. That helps me to trust my instincts, as crazy as that might sound...
      Following Meghan here on this blog, reading, learning, commenting, sometimes focusing on facts, sometimes doing the exact opposite (lol!!) with all of you - it surely was not only a welcome distraction but often a shining light in the middle of quite a lot of dark moments during the past months. I´m still planning on writing to H&M should I ever find a new place for myself - I haven´t forgotten his words at the Invictus Games ceremony....
      I hope and pray, too, that Harry and Meghan will be able to cherish their love in the years to come, build on it and find happiness and, in difficult times, strength to come through them, maybe even stronger than before!
      Thanks to everyone, and may I join in on your Best Wishes, Anon 15!! :-)))

    5. Thanks Anon15 for your lovely words. This blog has been a joy to follow, and comment in right from the beginning and share in the anticipation and excitement of this incredible partnership with you all. Eve, SG and other regulars - thanks for all your enjoyable commentary - long may this continue, it's been great getting to know and share with you - big hug to you everyone x.

      Charlotte - you continue to be the font of all knowledge and expertise when it comes to Meghan (and Catherine) and I've had the fortune to follow you from the start (with both ladies) - I wouldn't look anywhere else now and will be accepting your invite with pleasure. There's always something for everyone, male or female, to discover, inform and delight. And I love the idea of this still being called 'Mad about Meghan' after she becomes a Duchess. x

    6. Sorry for the delayed response. The week-end has arrived; I wish you all a very nice one.

      Heather,
      Thank you. I could not resist to look back especially considering where it is at now. I was not here when DKB started either. I arrived at DKB blog from a link which web address was something like britishroyals.uk. DKB was one of the links they provided. It was sometime in 2013, gradually continued here as Anonymous, and January 2015, joined as 15.

      Eve,
      You are welcome. Please continue to inspire more than you may not know; people read, and may not comment. The good and the bad in life, is part of being a human being. To be capable of knowing where one’s life is, admit it, and yet find joy from others happiness is another lesson to learn for some in this world. You have arrived in good form. It was as much interesting following your enthusiasm, optimism and comments, as keeping up with this couple’s relationship on this blog. You are missed on DKB. That blog has its own life too, which can lead into a different kind of discussion and information. You are missed there. I hope you will reconsider.

      Mr. D from UK,
      You are welcome. It is so nice and special to find your current comment while you are traveling and working in a different country. It is interesting to know how another part of the world perceives the wedding from a familiar MAM & DKB commenter.

      Hello SG- I hope you are ready for the party. You deserve a special honor as the wedding party planner of MAM.

      One more week to go-see you all next Saturday. Stay well and good.

      Delete
    7. PS: Eve,
      I hope you are reminded that it is a matter of time, make reasonable patience your friend until the right time and/or place happens. I have some obstacles in my way, as well as some good. Over the years, I learnt to be grateful for the good, and try working at solving the problems. Sometimes it feels forever, one can only carry on with the good before the bad affects other areas of life, and gets worse. I am sure you continue at the effort to solve the issue and make what you want happen rightfully. In truth, it is bad health which is the worst challenge in a person's life OR bad influence which results in bad health. It is good to know you continue to choose happiness while you are working on the challenges of life's routine. I don’t mean to minimize housing as routine as it is one of the most important parts of life, but millions of people sort out their housing issues every day as part of living. Your week has arrived! and enjoy it, as positive as you are. May it be a bright month and year in all aspects of your life, with a blessing from God.

    Charlotte, I've been wondering if you will be changing the name of this blog once Meghan becomes Duchess (or princess, or whatever he title will be), i.e...."hrhduchessmeghan.blogspot." I understand if you don't, as this has been an established blog for a year now. However, I feel the current title won't show the same respect to Meghan's position as does the title for Kate's blog. I think that's important because I have a feeling she won't get the respect (from the public in general) that she will deserve.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello Pam,

      I'm giving it serious consideration. Initially, Mad About Meghan was only a short-term name, since then it's really grown on me. Changing it could prove quite challenging logistically and in the days after the wedding I expect a number of sites with Meghan's title to pop up and I worry it would be very difficult for people to find this space and associated social media accounts. On the other hand, I completely understand your points. I'll continue to think it over for the next week or two.

      Mad About Meghan or Duchess Meghan? What do you all think?

      Delete
    2. IF ITS NOT BROKEN DON'T FIX IT! Love title Mad About Meghan because we are. A title before your name doesn't earn respect. It is the person that you are inside and how you project to others on the outside. Our girl is perfect for the role!

      Delete
    3. I'm all for Mad About Meghan.

      Delete
    4. Mad About Meghan has grown on me, too. I think it's appropriate considering the reaction of the crowds as Meghan and Harry toured the country. No matter what title she is given by the queen, people will always be mad about Meghan. She will be royal by marriage, have the official title and will have to follow certain rules, but Mad About Meghan suggests another side of her, her down-to-earth approachability, and kindness. Kate, being the future queen, might need a more formal blog title, but I hope you keep Mad About Meghan.

      How about “ mad about duchess Meghan” i think it’s a unique title and people probably won’t have trouble finding it.

    6. ๐ŸŒธ My vote is for Mad About Meghan. It already has a life of it’s own and it is a good one.๐Ÿ˜Š

      I absolutely ADORED the title from the beginning. It somehow captures for me Meghan - I don´t know her personally, but the title suits her, simple as that. So please continue with it - althouth I could live with the "Duchess" addition! ;-))

    14. Charlotte, it is a dilemma that only you can decide as there are many factors none of us can weigh in on. If you change the URL - then you'll have to pay for two domain names and have to set up a redirect, it could impact your search standings, etc.

      What I believe you should know is that none of your audience will leave. You are greatly admired and respected for your thoughtful and informative postings.

      A header (or added tagline) is a much easier change than a URL. Mull it over, give it time. We will all follow. :-)

    15. I agree - keep this as "Mad about Meghan" with your sub line changing to "The Life and Style of The Duchess of (Sussex?) - lovely new graphic too? x

  65. My little girl and I are totally in, Friday and Saturday. We're planning on having a full English breakfast and tons of tea. And since she's only 7 y/o we'll also have lots of twirling around in a princess gown with accompanying ohs and ahs, along with wanting her hair done in the same style as Meghan's. Can't wait.

  67. I will most definitely be on your blog Charlotte! Your live coverage of events are always much more exciting, informative and up-to-date than any news outlet (no offense to them). How exciting will it be for all of us to "attend" the royal wedding via this blog :)

    Your work is most appreciated Charlotte!

    I Have been quietly following along since day 1 of this blog and I will be here for any, and all, of the wedding festivities!

    Charlotte you have created two very unique places, about 2 very different women, where the caliber of quality information and level of kindness are second to none. Thank you so much for these fun, safe places to indulge royalists from around the world!

    I'm in this blog since a very little time and I like it because everybody comments with kindness and civility. This is very special. Maybe I shouln't give an opinion about the site name because of my short permanency in it, but I think Mad about Meghan is very appropriate before and after the wedding. It sounds nice and marks a difference with the site dedicated to Kate and her family.

  79. When Vanity Fair came up with a cover of Meghan, titled “Wild about Harry”, it was several weeks after you started the blog, “Mad About Meghan”. I thought, VF came up with a reflection of your blog for Harry’s version. MAM is a prelude and a chapter all on its own, not only a man mad about a woman, but the world was stirred in amazement, and a different kind of madness had been going on too. IMHO, may be archiving MAM as an archive accessible under the future blog name may work.

    You have been known for over seven years as a DKB blogger, and to have a “twin blog” of similar / compatible title will ease people into the alternate universe, while be mindful of the brothers spouses, though different, also as team members of “the fab four”. If Meghan was to become a duchess, then the sister blog will be DMB. Like you stated, many blogs with Meghan name will pop up; it may be better to maintain the consistency of what you have been known for, as a DKB blogger.

    It will also be post the madness, entering into the challenges of marriage, duty, possibly family, the known and the unknown future. I hope you will go for the DMB, or whatever titles the Queen will bestow on the couple. I hope everything of MAM will continue to be available as a pre marriage history on your blog. Regardless, your very own judgement is most reliable. Thank you for the offer to sort out what had been, and what will be. Stay good and well!

    Long time ago, someone asked you, what this blog will be titled after they marry. If I remember correctly, you favored naming it, HRH Duchess Meghan Blog.

  88. If you do feel you should rename the blog, perhaps "Mad About Meghan" could be the subtitle. Meghan has a sort of theatrical life, of her choosing, so this original title would be suitable.

    I found your Kate blog just after her wedding---I was looking at all sorts of information online and you created a nice home that was full of amazing vies and information and just the truth. I seldom read the posts because I thought they were just about fashion but I jumped into the Meghan blog because of the abuse she was receiving and wanted to vent some, and I have met the NICEST people. Thank you for all you hard work and all that lies ahead. :)

Welcome to Mad About Meghan! We do so look forward to reading your thoughts. Constructive, fair debate is always encouraged. Hateful, derogatory terms and insults are not welcome here. This space focuses on Harry and Meghan, not any other member of the Royal family. It's not the place to discuss politics either. Thank you for reading, we look forward to your comments :)
