Since the royal wedding is only nine days away and no official commitments are on the calendar, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is ticking the finishing touches before saying "yes."
Meghan celebrating the wedding to her best friend, the Canadian stylist, Jessica Mulroney is "high up" according to a friend, and looks forward to welcoming her parents to the UK next week. "Meghan can not wait to see them and show them their new home, there will be no rehearsal, instead Meg has planned a series of inconspicuous events for her parents so they can meet their new friends," a source said.
As reported by Vanity Fair last week, there will be a private family meeting so that Harry's family, including his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, can meet Meghan's parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland. Their parents spend a short time in London before heading to Windsor, where a dress rehearsal will take place before the big day. While the palace has not yet confirmed where Markle and Ragland will stay, a royal source said that Queen Meghan and her family offered Frogmore House for the duration of their stay in Windsor.
Meanwhile, Meghan has diligently zoomed in on the capital making last minute jobs before the wedding. Her schedule is managed by Harry's senior communications officer, Amy Pickerill, while the actress has an army of professionals on hand to prepare for May 19th. According to sources, she has her last dress fitting and should be overjoyed with her tailored wedding dress. (Bookmakers stopped betting on the designer of the dress at the end of March, photos of Harry were released last week leaving Ralph & Russo.)
It is estimated that Harry and his family will pay for the dress £ 100,000 and should be decorated with hand-sewn beads. Meghan is also said to have booked the services of the famous stylist Miguel Perez known for "springy curls" to make their wedding day. Although The Mail on Sunday recently quoted Perez as saying that he and Meghan have "a wedding day plan," Perez has meanwhile gone on Instagram to say he does not do Meghan's hair and "does not Once Meghan has met. "
Meghan has agreed to see her trusted facsimile Nichola Joss, whose signature facial includes massaging herself in the mouth to lift and model the muscle. Her manicurist was booked to come to Kensington Palace next week to make sure her nails look perfect for this important close-up as she and Harry change rings. And Meghan has trained and trained regularly at Kensington Palace and Heartcore Pilates, along with her friend, Instructor Heather Dorak, to fight her nerves before the wedding. "Meghan has been doing regular exercise to relieve stress," says a source. "She jogs through the park almost every day and starts each morning with yoga and a meditation."
While she and Harry both practically stop drinking as part of their healthy pre-wedding regime (Harry has also quit smoking for Meghan), the actress is invited to a glass of red wine in the evening to help her.
It is also an exciting day for the little Jasper George Galloway Dyer who was asked to be a side boy on the big day. The 5-year-old son of Prince Harry's closest friend, Mark Dyer, is rumored to have been one of Prince Harry's Gossensohns and will join Prince George who will presumably also appear as one the side boys of the couple. While Kensington Palace has not announced the details of the bridal party, the dyers have excitedly told friends that their son Jasper will have a lead role on May 19.
Dyer is a former equerry Prince Charles who became a mentor to Prince Harry in the years following Princess Diana's death. It was Dyer who suggested to Harry that he travel to Lesotho in his gap year, and since then they have been closely connected.
