    It will be interesting to see exactly what she brings to the monarchy.

    What's your point? She's an actor who's done sex scenes. So what?

    ... what exactly is the point of any of them?

    I hate the royal family but that wasn't my question. Which was why you were posting a clip of Meghan Markle in a TV sex scene with the comment you did. And why you're now posting pictures of her in skimpy clothing.

    Why not just come out and say whatever it is you're thinking?

    Oh, and clashes with the FA Cup Final. :facepalm: Good luck with public transport if teams from outside London get into the final.

    It's only 20 minutes on the Jubilee line from his gaff. He could do both!

    Once you've read procopius's "secret history" about the byzantine emperor justinian and his wife theodora the prurient nudge nudge of your suggestions is by comparison of scant interest. But you need not look back to the sixth century. Edward vii's love life when he was Prince of Wales was considerably more er energetic than either William or harry's. W & H by contrast really rather dull

    I never thought that hash tag 's earlier post, that the RW would be on Sat 26th May next year, was a confirmed thing :hmm:

    This BBC link confirms Saturday 19th May will be the date. Not a Bank Holiday w/e, no additional BH, and the weekend before we go away to Bearded Theory. Royalty are shit :mad:, refusing to sort their big days around my personal convenience :p

    We'll have to go rural walking in Wales (if the weather's good), for maximum media sycophancy avoidance :cool:

    Proof that the royals aren't the same as the common man.

    What guy doesn't first check the footy fixtures before saying yeah okay honey that date looks good?

    What's footy?

    It's the thing that some of your guests will go to when they apologise that they are ill and can't make your wedding.

  14. What you talking about, common man? His brother is the guvnor of the FA ffs. And a Villa fan, cos his great gran spoke with a Brummie accent on Spitting Image.

    The FA cup final has long lost its prestige where the country stopped to watch it since they shifted the kick off to 5:30 in the afternoon. It’s just another sporting event now.

    Load of bollocks.

    Harry livens up the royal family. MM might be as awesome as Harry thinks she is.

    Justreading the article Date set for Harry and Meghan's wedding

    and several paragraphs down is this -

    Ms Markle will be baptised into the Church of England and confirmed before the wedding.

    Wtf? Why?

    Fuck knows but I’m guessing it has something to do with royalty and CofE rules because omgz she’s a divorcee, and American, or something.

    I wonder how quick she gets her Brit citizenship and if she has to go through the same bullshit as my foreign wife just to live here with me. Bet not.

    The weird thing is, she's being forced to change/adopt/convert to a new religion to join this strange royal cult and there's no commentary on it at all. Like it's normal.

    The priest at the venue they've chosen will have insisted on the conversion not the royals themselves.

    This is standard if you want to get married in a church. Having to bullshit the priest that you are a good [insert religious denomination].

    TheHoodedClaw "Ride me sideways" was another one

    It's really not that unusual for religious people of different denominations to undergo* a bit of conversion if they want a church wedding.

    * go through the motions anyway

    I went through the motions (well,bricking it somewhat on the day) but there was no conversions foisted on me. Nothing against church/temple/etc weddings but to have to convert seems a bit archaic.
     
  25. Gromit

    Gromit International Man of Misery

    If you think that's archaic there are some priests who won't marry couples who have lived in sin first. Even though they are of faith they are not pure of faith. Computer says no.

    Did I pick up that Megan Markle was a Catholic by background, or have I made that up? :confused:
     
  27. Guineveretoo

    Guineveretoo Mostly bewildered

    Because she can’t get married in church otherwise?
     
  28. Guineveretoo

    Guineveretoo Mostly bewildered

    It is normal, if you want to be married in a Church of England church/cathedral.
     
  29. She’s Catholic, no? At least she went to a Catholic school.

    They don’t have to butter up the vicar though, his nan’s the vicar’s guvnor and the church is inside her house.

    skyscraper101 0891 50 50 50

    She’s Protestant, according to wiki. But obviously she’s not CofE being American.
