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.

Why Kate Middleton won’t be joining husband Prince William on next royal engagement as he prepares to embark on tour of Africa alone to fight against illegal trade of wildlife

Kate Middleton won’t be accompanying her husband Prince William on his next series of royal engagements in Africa.

The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to the couple's third child, Prince Louis, in April this year and has made a number of appearances during her maternity leave for special occasions, such as Trooping The Colour.

Prince William’s next royal tour was arranged by the UK Government, as part of his role as the President of United For Wildlife and Tusk Trust, but there’s a reason Kate won’t be by his side.

OK!’s royal expert Christina Reeves explained Prince William has often chosen to go solo in his battle against wildlife trade, while Kate also opts to go alone on personal projects close to her own heart. Likewise, Meghan Markle will also soon embark on a royal engagement of her own.

Christina said: “This working trip to Africa was arranged by the UK Government for Prince William – predominately in his role as President of United For Wildlife and Tusk Trust.

“While there will be some public engagements, the majority of his schedule there will remain private as he meets with with leaders from each country and key figures working in animal conservation ahead of October’s Illegal Wildlife Trade conference in London.

“Typically William has always worked solo in his fight against illegal wildlife trade, which is why we wouldn’t see Kate join him on a trip like this or him joining Kate on her own personal projects, such as promoting the importance of perinatal, maternal and children's mental health.

“William’s visit to Africa is in the same vein as his 2016 solo trip to Vietnam, where his goal was to urge people to stop buying rhino horn and elephant ivory.”

Christina believes Kate will remain off royal duty for a little while longer as she continues to focus on her new baby boy, as well as Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The royal expert added: “At present, Kate is still on maternity leave and there aren’t plans for her to return to official engagements until further into Autumn. We did see her take time out to attend some key events, such as celebrations to mark the Centenary of Royal Air Force in July, but her priority continues to be at home with George, Charlotte and, of course, baby Louis.”

During his time in Kenya, William will meet with the British Army Training Unit Kenya in Nanyuki, Lakipia County.

His trip will commence on Monday 24 September until Sunday 30 September.
