Prince Harry, arrived with his date, Meghan Markle, to Pippa Middleton’s wedding reception this evening.
The wedding reception
Pippa was smiling in a tailor-made Giles Deacon wedding dress as she got married to her fiancée, James Matthews.
The private wedding celebration took place at the Bucklebury home of Middleton’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton.
300 person attended the reception among Middleton’s sister, Princess Kate, and Prince William
Markle, 35, and Prince Harry, 32, started to date last summer. Markle is an actress as well as a philanthropist.
Accompanying Prince Harry to such an important event left people wondering if there may be a future possibility of their wedding.
It is also the first time Markle joins Prince Harry to an event where Prince William and Princess Kate along with their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte attended the ceremony.
A smaller celebration at St Mark’s Church
Markle did not attend the reception that took place in Englefield House, where guests went after the celebration at St Mark’s Church in Englefield, Berkshire, nearby the Middletons’ Bucklebury house.
Her disappearance is a sign of respect to Pippa’s wedding and an attempt not to steal the show from her maintaining it as Pippa’s big day.
100 guests roughly attended the intimate ceremony where Middleton embraced a “no ring no bring” policy for celebration inside St Marks Church.
Their first public appearance together happened at the beginning of this month after Harry’s charity polo match when the couple kissed and hugged.
In April, Harry traveled to Toronto where Markle was filming a series to spend Easter weekend with her which resulted in him skipping the traditional royal Easter St. George’s chapel at Windsor castle with Queen Elizabeth II.
“Despite the distance, the media attention and everything else, there’s a real ease to their relationship,” an anonymous source said. “It just works. They are deeply happy.”
