I’m not going to lie, I barely paid attention to the Cambridge family yesterday despite the presence of four out of the five. Between the Givenchy gown, the ceremony and the carriage ride, it was all about the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. BUT, I think it’s worth circling back to talk about the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte who were certainly notable guest stars at the royal wedding.

T-6 Days & the Wedding Details Keep Coming

Instrument of Consent

As we creep closer to May 19 more and more details about who, what and where keep coming out. Let’s start with the most official and work our way backwards to the straight up gossip, shall we?

Yesterday, the Instrument of Consent – the Queen’s official consent – for the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was shared with the public. Many were quick to point out that Meghan wasn’t referred to as “trusty and well-beloved” the way that the Duchess of Cambridge was in the lead up to her marriage to the Duke. The simple answer to that is that Kate is a British citizen and Meghan isn’t – the language is dictated as such.
