Yesterday, it was announced that Mike & Zara Tindall (Harry and William’s cousin) had chosen The Duke of Sussex as one of their daughter’s godparents. At the same time, Harry & Meghan attended the christening of Lena at St Nicholas Church in Cherington, Gloucestershire. The couple were joined by Lena’s parents, The Princess Royal (Princess Anne, Lena’s grandmother), Captain Mark Phillips (Lena’s grandfather) and Her Majesty The Queen.
Kensington Palace has also confirmed to some news outlets that the Duchess of Sussex won’t make other public appearances until Baby Sussex is born, though she’ll still have private meetings.
Last night, Harry & Meghan attended a Christmas Carol Service hosted by the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund at St Luke’s Church in Chelsea, West London. Both William and Harry are patrons of the charity, which was created following the death of their friend Henry Von Straubenzee in a car acccident back in 2002.
Meghan gave a reading of the poem Our Deepest Fear during the service. This is the second event Meghan attends in an unofficial capacity in 2 days, as she attended Michelle Obama’s talk at the Southbank Centre and met with her afterwards.
The British Royal Family all went back to Windsor Castle today to attend the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. Princess Eugenie, 9th in line to the British throne, is the daughter of Prince Andrew, The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York; and is the younger sister of Princess Beatrice. Jack Brooksbank is the European brand manager for Casamigos, the tequila brand co-founded by Georges Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman. Eugenie and Jack have been together since 2010 and got engaged back in January. Eugenie’s sister and Jack’s brother were respectively Maid of Honor and Best Man.
Harry & Meghan arrived with the rest of the family, and were seated next to The Cambridges and Anne, Princess Royal. Meghan wore a Givenchy coat and dress paired with Manolo Blahnik heels, a Noel Stewart fascinator and a Givenchy clutch. She completed her look with jewelry from Pippa Small. You can find photos from the arrival/departure and the ceremony in the gallery.
The wedding must have been quite special for Meghan & Harry as it probably reminded them of their own, which only happened 5 months ago!
Before we begin with today’s news, we are very delighted to wish a happy birthday to HRH The Duchess of Sussex! Meghan celebrates her 37th birthday, and her first as a member of the Royal Family. While she will sure celebrate with close friends and family, today Meghan and her husband Prince Harry attended the wedding of Charlie Van Straubenzee (a childhood friend of Harry’s) and Daisy Jenks in Surrey. The Duchess was seen talking with Celia McCorquodale, Harry’s cousin, and her husband George Woodhouse (The Duke & Duchess attended their wedding back in June). Among other guests were Princess Eugenie of York and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank, who will marry at St. George’s Chapel on October 12. Today, Meghan wore a Club Monaco dress with Aquazzura high heels, a Philip Treacy fascinator and a Kayu clutch.
This is probably the last time we see Prince Harry and Meghan, Duke & Duchess of Sussex in August, as the royals usually take the month off to enjoy some time with their friends and family before resuming their work in early September.
