Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry in May 2018

Royal wedding date: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry in May 2018

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding will take place at Windsor Chapel

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle will wed at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May.
Kensington Palace has confirmed the pair will not hold their nuptials at Westminster Abbey, as Prince William and Catherine Middleton did.
Instead, they have opted for the lower-key choice of St George’s Chapel at the Windsor Castle royal estate west of London.

Prince Harry was christened there, and his father Prince Charles held a blessing there after his civil wedding to his second wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, in 2005.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appeared on British TV to discuss their engagement.

“As with all members of the Royal family, Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there over the last year and a half,’’ Prince Harry’s communications secretary Jason Knauf said.
“They are grateful to the Queen for granting permission for the use of the chapel.’’

The royal family would pay for all the core elements of the wedding including the service, flowers, and music.
No final date has been announced, and Kensington Palace is yet to reveal who will conduct the service, although it is likely it will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

The happy couple officially announced
their engagement on Monday in London
A Kensington Palace spokesman also confirmed that Ms. Markle, a Protestant, would be baptized and confirmed into the Church of England prior to the wedding. The Queen is the head of the Church of England.

While much smaller and less grand that Westminster Abbey or St Paul’s Cathedral, which are both in the historic center of London, St George’s Chapel can still seat 800 guests.

However, it is on the Windsor Castle estate and will be more difficult for members of the public to access.

Mr. Knauf said the day would be a “fun and joyful’’ occasion for family and friends, and Prince Harry and Ms. Markle “want the day to be shaped so as to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations too.’’
It is not yet know how the public might be able to view either the wedding or the potential arrival of the bridal party at the chapel. The service will be televised.
Ms. Markle, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, formally announced their engagement at Kensington Palace, their home, on Monday.

Mr. Knauf revealed Ms. Markle would begin formal royal duties almost immediately and would join Prince Harry at a series of public appearances in Nottingham, a midlands city three hours north of London, on Friday.
She will conduct a street walk to meet the public, visit the National Justice Museum, and join a celebration for World AIDS Day.
The spokesman confirmed the American Ms. Markle would begin the process of gaining UK citizenship, which was likely to take several years.

Prince William and Kate Middleton were married at Westminster Abbey in 2010

It was also confirmed one of Ms. Markle’s dogs, a beagle called Guy, was now living with the couple in Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace in central London, while her second dog, a mixed-breed called
Bogart, had been rehomed with friends at an undisclosed location - presumably in Canada or the United States.

“It is a permanent arrangement,’’ the spokesman confirmed, leading the British press to joke about headlines of “Bogart Dumped.’’

“Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are extremely grateful for the warm public response following yesterday’s announcement of their engagement,’’ Mr. Knauf said.
“In a happy moment in their lives, it means a great deal that so many people throughout the UK, the Commonwealth and around the world are celebrating with them.’’

Prince Charles and Camilla held a blessing at St George’s Chapel
 after their civil wedding in 2005

The date of the wedding and details on the service will be released in coming weeks.
A May date will avoid a clash with the arrival of Prince William and Catherine’s third child, which is due in April.
Prince Charles will also be in Australia in early April to open the Commonwealth Games.


British Royal: Prince Harry with girlfriend

Prince Harry makes first public appearance with girlfriend

TORONTO: Britain’s Prince Harry and American girlfriend Meghan Markle made their first formal public appearance together on Monday, with the couple holding hands and watching a wheelchair tennis match at the Invictus Games in Toronto.

Markle, an actress who stars in the TV legal drama “Suits,” has been dating Harry for more than a year. They both appeared at the Invictus Games opening ceremony on the weekend, but sat apart and were not photographed together.

On Monday, they both wore jeans and sunglasses, but did not escape the notice of the crowd, which cheered their arrival. The pair appeared relaxed and were seen leaning in to share whispered comments during the match, and also turned around and chatted with spectators in the row behind them.

There were about 200 to 300 spectators at the match, which was free to attend.
The Invictus Games are an international sports competition for wounded and sick military personnel founded in 2014 by Harry, younger brother of William, the second in line to the British throne.

The couple’s step into the public eye together will likely fuel speculation that marriage is on the horizon and only add to media interest in Markle.
Harry, William and William’s wife Kate are a staple of the front pages of British newspapers and gossip magazines, which pore over every aspect of their lives.

Harry last November criticized the press for subjecting Markle to “a wave of abuse and harassment” after the news of their relationship sparked a stream of stories about the 36-year-old actress in British newspapers, including comment pieces he complained had a racial undertone.

Markle, a divorcee, is a native of Los Angeles whose father is white and mother African-American.

Markle told Vanity Fair magazine earlier this month that she and Harry were in love, in her first direct comments about the relationship.

Her former husband, Trevor Engelson, is reportedly working on a television comedy about divorce and about sharing custody of children after the former wife marries into the British royal family.


Sex robot in British talk show

Sex robot appears as guest in British talk show

LONDON: The future may be here now-a sex robot surprisingly appeared in a British morning TV show.

Affectionately called “Samantha” by co-creators Arran Squire and wife Hannah Nguyen, the sex robot was turned off for the duration of the interview on the TV show “This Morning” to prevent it from saying anything inappropriate.

During the interview, Squire explained how the sex robot and sex dolls help to spice things up in relationships.

This was the case between him and his wife who thinks of Samantha as just another part of the family.

quire continued that his children would often ask about Samantha as well, while knowing fully well the sex robot’s true purpose.

Apparently, Samantha has a “family mode” which allows her to be in the presence of children.

The hosts were visibly unnerved by the revelations, which prompted guest psychologist Emma Kenny to chime in.

She pointed out that by supporting sex dolls, and to a further extent, sex robots, people are commercializing the female body.

Kenny also stated that the presence of Samantha is damaging to the relationship between Squire and his family.

Meanwhile, Squire and his wife affirmed that sex dolls are not meant to replace humans.


Japan princess set to wed commoner

Upcoming marriage will force Japan princess to quit royal family

TOKYO: Princess Mako, the eldest granddaughter of Japanese Emperor Akihito, will wed a former classmate, the Imperial Household said on Sunday, confirming a marriage that will further deplete the royal family since she must become a commoner.

The announcement was aired by public broadcaster NHK.

Mako is one of only four royal grandchildren. The other three are her younger sister, Kako, her brother, Hisahito, and Crown Prince Naruhito’s daughter, Aiko.

The shrinking royal population, which mirrors the broader aging of Japanese society, has raised concerns that the prince may also be the last.

Ten-year-old Hisahito is one of four heirs to the throne behind Akihito’s two middle-aged sons, whose wives are in their early 50s, and Akihito’s octogenarian brother, Masahito.

The engagement to Kei Komuro, who works in a Tokyo law office, comes after Japanese lawmakers in June approved a bill to allow Akihito to step down, the first abdication by a Japanese monarch since 1817.

A year ago, the first emperor not to be considered divine said in a rare public appearance that he feared age would make it hard to fulfill his duties. The 83-year-old has had heart surgery and been treated for prostate cancer.

But the legislation, which only applies to Akihito and not future emperors, makes no reference to the controversial topics of whether to revise a males-only succession law or to allow women to stay in the imperial family after marriage.

Conservatives fear doing so would be a first step to letting females inherit the throne.
Mako and Komuro graduated from International Christian University. She has a master’s degree from the University of Leicester and has been working as a researcher at a museum. Her fiance once served as a “Prince of the Sea” to promote tourism near Tokyo, according to media reports.
