Kate Middleton's younger sister pulled together quite the affair, though there was one noticeable absentee at the ceremony: Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle. The actress avoided the paparazzi by skipping the church altogether, heading straight for the reception instead.
In a grand romantic gesture, Harry took himself on a 160km round trip from the Bucklebury venue to pick Meghan up in person from Kensington Palace in London.
“Harry is extremely fond of his sister-in-law. They had a wonderful time at Kate and William’s wedding. He knew this was all about Pippa’s big day and he and Meghan jointly decided they didn’t want to upstage her,” a source told The Sun.
“Harry went all the way to London to get Meghan and bring her to the party. He was determined not to upstage Pippa but also really wanted them to enjoy the wedding together. He left as discreetly as possible and travelled with her all the way back up, showing just how serious he is about her.
“He didn’t want Meghan having to arrive alone, without him alongside her, at the reception," the source continued.
If only we all had a Prince Harry in our lives.
