American actress Meghan Markle was absent from Pippa Middleton’s recent wedding with millionaire hedge fund manager James Matthews.
There was a very good reason for the 35-year-old actress’ absence too, as Prince Harry made the decision for Markle not to attend the wedding service as to not upstage the bride.
Very selflessly, Meghan stayed at Kensington Palace, and then her Prince charming drove 100 miles back to London to pick her up and take her to the second reception at the Middleton’s home.
A source told the Sun:
“[Harry] knew this was all about Pippa’s big day and he and Meghan jointly decided they didn’t want to upstage her. Harry went all the way back 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 didn’t want Meghan having to arrive alone, without him alongside her, at the reception.”
So far, the only photos of the actress we have seen at the events were of her and Prince Harry entering the estate.
Harry left the first reception at Englefield House to bring Meghan to be in close proximity with high-profile members of the royal family, feeding rumors of another potential royal wedding.
What a nice show of selflessness from everyone’s hopeful royal-t0-be.
