Meghan and Harry were banned from sitting together at Pippa Middleton’s ‘dream’ wedding


MEGHAN MARKLE was reportedly uninvited from Pippa Middleton’s 2017 wedding ceremony as there were fears she would “overshadow” the event. The Duchess of Sussex attended the “private” reception after but she didn’t get to spend much time with Prince Harry.

Meghan was reportedly uninvited at the last minute to the ceremony.

Royal experts explained that Carole Middleton feared Meghan would “overshadow the main event”.

For that same reason, the Duchess of Cambridge decided not to be a bridesmaid or maid of honour to keep the attention on the bride.

Royal author Judy Wade explained Kate made this decision to not “upstage her sister”.

Although Meghan didn’t attend the religious ceremony in Berkshire and Harry arrived at the church on her own, reports suggest she was later invited to the reception.

After the ceremony at St Mark’s Church, guests enjoyed a glamorous reception and evening party.

The reception’s menu included mini haggis, deer carpaccio, langoustine claws and asparagus with Hollandaise sauce.

The evening party featured a light show and games for the guests.

However, following Pippa’s request, guests were not allowed to sit together.

Pippa decided to change the traditional wedding seating rule.

The new and unique seating plan meant couples couldn’t sit with one another.

Therefore, it is thought Meghan Markle and Prince Harry didn’t sit together for dinner and the same happened to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The guests reportedly loved the idea and no one seemed to mind.

Kate’s sister wanted to make sure all the guests spent time together and got to know each other at the event.

A source explained that was the wedding “Pippa and James dreamed of”.

Pippa looked beautiful at her wedding wearing a Giles Deacon dress and a handmade Maidenhair Fern tiara.

Pippa and Mathew have two children: Arthur and Grace.

Kate Middleton’s sister is currently pregnant and expecting her third child.
