Royal Wedding: Prince Harry will ‘have a knees up’ before Meghan Markle marriage
LOOSE WOMEN invited Dickie Arbiter onto the show today to speak about how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be celebrating ahead of their wedding in Windsor tomorrow.
Royal commentator Dickie was a guest on today’s Loose Women to talk about the royal wedding.
He joined Kaye Adams, Saira Khan, Nadia Sawalha and host Andrea McLean.
In a royal wedding special devoted to the couple tying the knot in Windsor tomorrow, viewers saw the ladies dress up for the special occasion.
Dickie accompanied the panel to give his insider knowledge on how the royal couple will spend their last night before they’re married.
Nadia asked: “Will there be a bit of drinking, a late night at the bar?”
“There will be a bit of drinking, the Prince’s dad is holding a dinner for 200 people and after that there will be a bit of a knees up,” Dickie explained.
“The wrinklies will go off to bed and the youngsters will get on with it.”
Tonight the Prince of Wales is hosting a dinner party for 200 guests, made up of family and exclusive guests, and Meghan and Harry will of course be in attendance.
Dickie also revealed what he thought the late Princess Diana would think of Meghan.
“She would have been delighted that Harry has settled and found someone to start a family,” he said.
“Hopefully this will stay without a hitch, unlike his own childhood.”
Having been a spokesperson for Queen Elizabeth II until 2000, he noted that he wasn’t surprised that Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland wasn’t taking lead on her daughter’s big day.
But he did say he “would have liked to see her” walk her down the aisle.
It was announced this morning by Kensington Palace, that Prince Charles will be walking with Meghan.
The statement added that the Prince of Wales was: “Pleased to be able to welcome to Ms Markle to the Royal Family in this way.”
It comes after Meghan’s father Thomas Markle Sr. is unable to attend due to emergency heart surgery.
Dickie also spoke about the planning of tomorrow’s nuptials and who was in charge of the overall decision making.
“As far as the wedding is concerned Harry and Meghan call the shots,” he said.
Tomorrow Meghan and Harry will tie the knot at Windsor Castle at midday.
Following the ceremony at St. George’s chapel, they will ride in a carriage through the streets of Windsor, which will be the first time the public will see the couple as husband and wife.
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12:30pm on ITV.
