Pippa Middleton weds: All the pictures from the 'wedding of the year'


Pippa Middleton, the youngest sister of Duchess of Cambridge, got hitched to hedge fund manager James Matthews in Englefield, England today. Her niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte served as pageboy and bridesmaid, under close watch by mom Kate Middleton.

Just as suspected, the bride wore a guipure lace dress made by British designer, Giles Deacon who had been seen leaving the Middleton home with a garment bag a few times months before the wedding.

The most likely reason Meghan did not go to the church in Englefield was probably to avoid upstaging the bride, Pippa Middleton, on her big day.

But when Prince Harry arrived with his brother, Prince William, rather than his girlfriend, naturally the world began to wonder where Meghan was - especially as The Queen has apparently given her blessing for Harry to propose to her.

But despite Meghan not being married or engaged to Harry, she attended Pippa Middleton's wedding reception regardless.

Meghan only attended the wedding reception, so she was not present at the church service.

Harry, 32, has been dating Markle since a year ago. At the ceremony, guests noted that the children were "very" well-behaved for the nuptials.

As royal enthusiasts wonder what made Markle skip the much-awaited church wedding, sources claim that was the focus of the royal couple - to remain as undercover as possible. The two have kept their relationship largely private since Kensington Palace confirmed they were an item in November.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry looked so happy and relaxed at the ceremony of Pippa's wedding that people understood they have really deep and serious relations.

Prince Harry is proud of his woman, he didn't want Meghan having to arrive alone, without him alongside her, at the reception.
