Princess Diana: How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will honour the Prince’s late mother at the royal wedding

Prince Harry was delighted to announce his engagement to Meghan Markle in November 2017, and the royal wedding has caused much excitement among fans with the date set for May 2018.

And while the happy news has delighted the nation, as with Prince William’s wedding to Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, the event has been tinged with sadness over the fact their late mother, much loved Princess Diana, won’t be able to attend the special day.

However, there are subtle ways in which the couple plan to pay tribute to Diana on the big day, and ensure her memory lives on…

Prince Harry has ensured Diana’s side of the family is set to play an integral role to proceedings, including her brother Charles Earl Spencer and Lady Sarah McCorquodale.

In an official statement, Kensington Palace said: “Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother’s family in his wedding.

“All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading.

“Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day.”

Tiara

There is suggestion that Meghan could wear the same tiara Princess Diana wore on her wedding day, back in 1981 to Prince Charles.

Flowers

Their floral arrangements look set to nod to Diana too, with blooms including white garden roses in her memory.

After a 13-year-long relationship with Elizabeth Hurley and dating a string of famous women including Drew Barrymore and Jemima Khan, Hugh insisted marriage wasn't for him.

He said in an interview in 2015 that the legal or religious union of men and women is a recipe for "misery", adding: “I’m not really a believer in marriage.

"I’ve seen very few good examples, maybe five, in my life, but I think otherwise it’s a recipe for mutual misery."

"We went through terrible years at the beginning when neither of us had any work, living in a tiny flat. It was quite bonding."

Danniella Westbrook fears she’ll relapse on cocaine as she prepares for surgery to fix collapsed face with bone from her rib

Danniella Westbrook fears she'll relapse on drugs because of the pain she's in ahead of her surgery to fix her collapsed face.

The former EastEnders star struggled with cocaine addiction for years but is now clean and is preparing to have bone from her rib inserted into her cheek.

But she says the pain is excruciating, and her craving for drugs has resurfaced, telling The Sun: "It's enough to send you back to drugs, but I won't do it.

"It has been a shocking time, a shocking two years health wise. It would be so easy to go back [to taking drugs]. I'm an addict of the highest order so I have addictions in every area.

"I don't normally do painkillers. I'd rather just be in pain.

Danniella has asked her pal Kerry Katona to be by her side and support her and make sure she doesn't become addicted to the prescription painkillers, adding: "Kerry will be with me a lot through the operations.

"I need to make sure everyone who is close to me is in the loop. Should there be a problem with medication drugs then people will know what to look for so I'm not in a vulnerable position."

The former soap star previously lost the septum in her nose after years of drug abuse but her current condition actually stems from osteoporosis, and she says the impact on her looks has been devastating.

Admitting she feels suicidal some days, Danniella said: "I keep thinking this is not who I am, that's not what I look like.
