Pippa Middleton Was Reluctant to Invite Meghan Markle to Her Wedding - Here's Why

Pippa Middleton was reluctant to invite Meghan Markle to her May 20, 2017 wedding, the new book “Finding Freedom” revealed.

“The media frenzy that followed [Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's] every move made them somewhat of a reluctant addition to the guest list for Pippa Middleton’s vows on May 20, 2017,” authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote in the book that was released this week. “Both the bride and her mom, Carole, privately harbored concerns that the American actress’s presence alongside [Prince] Harry might overshadow the main event.”

The authors continued, “the day of the nuptials, The Sun ran a cover story, ‘It’s Meghan v Pippa in the…Wedding of the Rears,’ accompanied by a rear-view paparazzi picture of Meghan in yoga pants leaving a central London yoga studio that week side by side with the infamous photo of Pippa from behind during Kate’s 2011 wedding ceremony. Harry and Meghan agreed that she couldn’t possibly turn up at the church, only fifty meters away from a specially arranged media pen, after such a crass cover story.”

She ended up not attending the ceremony and only attending the reception, and sat apart from Prince Harry.

Pippa and Meghan have been seen together since the wedding and looked to have a good time.
