Will the Queen Even Attend the Royal Wedding??

So exciting! Prince Harry and his new fiancée Meghan Markle’s wedding will be in May at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, but what many fans are dying to know is if one very special guest, his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, will be in attendance.

Even though there were rumors swirling that she wouldn’t be present for the red-headed royal’s upcoming nuptials, Kensington Palace’s latest announcement suggests that she may be in attendance. “Her Majesty the Queen has granted permission for the wedding to take place at the Chapel,” the statement read on Tuesday, Nov. 28. People has also reported that the Queen will be there.

The couple announced their engagement on Monday, Nov. 27 — and even revealed Elizabeth knew all about the engagement before it happened because Harry asked her permission to propose! “His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle. The wedding will take place in Spring 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course,” read a statement from Harry’s father, Prince Charles. “His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family. Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents. The couple will live in Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace.”

However, some reports suggest that Elizabeth might not attend the special day. Since Elizabeth, 91, is technically the head of the church of England, some say she should not endorse a marriage with someone who’s been divorced. Meghan, 36, was previously hitched to Trevor Engelson from 2011 until 2013.

A source told the news outlet that similar to how she wouldn’t attend her son Prince Charles’ ceremony to Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005, she may not make the exception for her grandson. So upsetting!

However, the red-headed royal, 33, and Meghan are still determined to have as much fun as they can at their big day with or without Elizabeth! “It will be fun, but classy,” a source told Life & Style. “Harry isn’t into the stuffiness and formalities that come with being a royal. He’d rather serve rum cocktails and tequila shots than expensive champagne.” We can’t wait!

Meghan Markle to be First Black British Royal??

The engagement of Britain’s Prince Harry to actress Meghan Markle is raising eyebrows on both sides of the Atlantic for a particularly British set of reasons: She’s a biracial woman who will be the first American divorcée to marry into the royal family in nearly 81 years.

Harry, the 33-year-old second son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, quietly proposed to Markle earlier this month. On Tuesday, the royal family announced that Markle will become a British citizen before she marries Harry during a May 2018 ceremony in Windsor Castle. The young couple will live in Nottingham Cottage, part of London’s Kensington Palace.

The famously secretive royal family made the engagement public on Monday. In an interview that evening with the BBC’s Mishal Husain, Markle said she and Harry met in July 2016 on a blind date set up by a mutual friend, then cemented their relationship during a camping trip to Botswana. She said Harry asked her to marry him during what she described as a “cozy night” at home.

“It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got down on one knee,” she told the BBC. “As a matter of fact, I could barely let you finish proposing. I said, ‘Can I say yes now?'”

The engagement sets the stage for the first royal wedding since Harry’s older brother William, the heir to the British throne, married Kate Middleton in 2011. Nearly 23 million Americans watched TV coverage of the wedding, outstripping the number who had watched Charles’s wedding to Diana in 1981 (the ring Harry gave to Markle included several diamonds that had belonged to his late mother).

The engagement also ends months of speculation about the future of Harry’s relationship with Markle, who took the unusual step of cooperating with an extensive Vanity Fair profile earlier this year.

Markle is no Kate Middleton, who kept a low public profile while dating William and has seamlessly slid into the public role expected of the woman who will be Britain’s next queen.

 

That’s not just because Markle hails from Los Angeles — she is also divorced, half-Jewish, and biracial. Her mother is African American; her father is white, and Jewish.

It’s also because Markle had a high-profile role on the USA Network show Suits and ran the Tig, a lifestyle blog.

RHONY’s Luann D’Agostino Ends 7-Month Marriage

It’s over for Luann D’Agostino and husband Tom. The Real Housewives of New York City star announced Thursday via her Twitter account that she and her husband of seven months are calling it quits.

“It’s with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce,” wrote the former Countess. “We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!”

A close friend tells PEOPLE it was Luann who officially moved to dissolve the marriage.

“She is sad,” says the source, “but she was the one who made the decision to file.”

The source reveals that Luann is going on vacation and “finding comfort” with her grown children, Victoria and Noel.

Adds the source of Luann and Tom: “They had lots of issues and really tried to make it work, but it was just obvious they weren’t on the same page.”

Luann’s RHONY cast mate Ramona Singer, who had previously gone on dates with Tom and who made no secret of predicting the relationship would be short-lived, was among the first to respond to the news, replying to the original tweet: “I am so sad for you.”

The couple’s Dec. 31 wedding was the main event of a lavish, three-day wedding weekend in Palm Beach, Florida, attended by several friends of the bride from various Housewives franchises.

Luann, 52, was previously married to Count Alexandre de Lesseps. Tom, 50, had not previously been married.

Beset by doubts about their relationship throughout their whirlwind courtship, the pair weathered divorce rumors in mid-July, with a source telling PEOPLE the couple had hit a “major rough patch.”

“Tom and I are in love, and marriage takes work,” Luann told PEOPLE at the time. “We are working on this together.”

One insider told PEOPLE in July that many of the couple’s issues stemmed from “trust issues” related to lifelong bachelor Tom’s previous infidelity and flirtatious personality that had been causing friction well before the wedding.

“There have been a lot of problems,” acknowledged the source. “She felt he was using her for her fame and he went from Ramona to Sonja to her. He’s a Housewife groupie.”

Luann herself told PEOPLE just days after word of newlywed troubles surfaced: “What couple doesn’t argue? Tom and I have a very passionate love affair going and that’s why we got married.”

As is her custom, the “That’s the Way Love Goes” singer has mostly avoided the spotlight during her pregnancy. But in late November she took to Twitter to update her fans on how things were going, tweeting, “Hey you guys… It’s been awhile… but I’m still listening.. I feel your love and prayers.. Thank you.. and I’m doing well.. Al Hamdu lillah.”

In April of last year, she canceled her remaining comeback tour dates, and announced plans to start a family.

“We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change . . . My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” she said in a video message to her fans at the time. “Please, if you can, try to understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up; doctor’s orders.”

Jackson and Al Mana wed in 2012. This is the couple’s first child.

People first reported news of the birth.
