Prince Harry & Meghan Markle You're All Invited to Watch Us Get Hitched!!!

12/1/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be saying their "I dos" at Windsor Castle on live TV for the whole world to see ... just like his brother, William, and sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.

Harry and Meghan's wedding is still in the early planning stages, but our Kensington Palace contact tells us they'll allow cameras in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle to make it available on the tele.

We're told it will be a pool camera, meaning all media outlets can plug in and run the wedding on broadcast and cable TV as well as all digital platforms.

Here's the contest. Around 23 million Americans and 27 million Brits tuned in to Kate and William's wedding back in 2011. Our guess ... Harry and Meghan will beat that, especially in America because she's one of US. 

If you want to set your DVR, there are reports that the wedding will go down May 26 during Memorial Day weekend. The precise date will be revealed next week.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Memorial Day Weekend Wedding ... Report Claims

11/30/2017 2:55 PM PST
Breaking News

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are giving friends and family an extra day to recover from their wedding because they're reportedly tying the knot over Memorial Day Weekend. 

The wedding date is set for Saturday, May 26 ... according to one British tabloid. That would work out perfectly not only for their American guests, but also the Brits. That Monday is a Bank Holiday in the UK.

As we reported, they're getting hitched at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle outside of London.

If you're a Royal fam fan ... plan your holiday accordingly.

Meghan Markle No Royal Fast Pass To UK Citizenship

11/30/2017 9:28 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

No doubt it's good to be the Prince's fiancée, but Meghan Markle still won't get special treatment when it comes to becoming a citizen in the United Kingdom ... TMZ has learned.

Prince Harry's betrothed announced she intends to apply to be a legal Brit -- a process that can take up to 5 years for commoners. You'd think Meghan could get on some kinda Royal fam fast track, but Kensington Palace tells us no dice. 

Official word is Meghan will have to go through the process like any "normal" subject of the crown.

Don't panic ... this won't delay the wedding, but here's how it could have an impact. Presumably, Queen Elizabeth will bestow a title on Harry and Meghan on their wedding day -- just like William and Kate got on theirs. It's still unclear if Meghan would be allowed to use her title before she's a UK citizen.

Now, let's talk royal babies. If the newlyweds have one before Meghan gets citizenship, the kid would automatically be a dual citizen in the UK and the U.S.!! Fingers crossed, America.

Prince William Listen Up, Santa ... Prince George Wants ONE Thing

11/30/2017 7:53 AM PST

Prince William's now reduced to running errands for the other future King of England, although it's a very important one -- delivering Prince George's Christmas list to Jolly Ol' St. Nick!

Wills hit up Santa Thursday in Helsinki, Finland -- not too far from his North Pole HQ -- and handed him a very short list for the 4-year-old prince. It's a little hard to make out, but looks like all lil Geo wants is a police car.

It's unclear if he means a toy car, or the real deal.

One things's for sure. This look on Santa's face screams ... Can't YOU handle this one on your own, PRINCE?!!

Meghan Markle Peace Out, 'Suits' ... I'm a Royal Now!!!

11/28/2017 2:25 PM PST
Breaking News

Meghan Markle is officially saying sayonara to her day job ... and her bosses at "Suits" couldn't be happier for her. 

USA Network congratulated Meg and Prince Harry saying, "Meghan has been a member of our family for seven years and it has been a joy to work with her. We want to thank her for her undeniable passion and dedication to 'Suits,' and we wish her the very best."

There was speculation Meghan would be leaving "Suits" as she and Harry got tighter, and she hinted she'd be leaving after the engagement news broke. Works out well ... her lead character on the drama also got married.

She told the BBC she was proud of her work on the show, "and now it's time to work as a team [with Harry]."

Royal life over TV life. Ya can't blame her. 

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle It's Gonna Be a May Wedding

11/28/2017 7:54 AM PST

Meghan Markle's gonna be a May bride ... she and Prince Harry announced the month and location of their wedding -- and Harry's got history there. 

Kensington Palace says the royal couple will walk down the aisle in May 2018 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. They didn't say the date yet. 

Looks like they opted for May because April is Kate Middleton's due date for her and Prince William's third child. As for the Chapel ... that's where Harry was christened way back in 1984. 

Best part of the announcement ... "The Royal Family will pay for the wedding."

Big relief for the Markles.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Our Love is Goofy It Knows No Bounds ... Or Sounds

11/28/2017 6:47 AM PST

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are a turn-off .... but only when the mics are off.

Here's the couple right after finishing up their first interview Monday to the BBC announcing their engagement. You've seen some snippets already looking royal and speaking eloquently as hell ... but here they let loose after the interview ends and the mics are turned off.

Check it out ... sure, there's no sound. But you can still appreciate -- or throw up, depending on whether you're salty -- their silliness.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Church Wedding Still An Option ... Despite Her Divorce

11/28/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can walk down the aisle under the eyes of God if they want, 'cause there's no issue with a church wedding ... despite her being a divorcee.

British author Katie Nicholl -- an expert on all things Royal -- tells TMZ Harry and Meghan can get married in a church if they please, because the rules have been relaxed on divorcees getting married on sacred ground.  

There are several options available to Harry and Meghan, including St. Paul's -- where Prince Charles married Lady Diana -- as well as the Westminster Abbey -- where Prince William and Kate tied the knot in 2011.

There's a buzz Harry and Meghan want a smaller, more intimate affair and he might opt for something like St. George's chapel in Windsor Castle.

You may recall ... Prince Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles at Windsor Guildhall, which is like getting married at city hall. They chose that venue partly because they were both divorced and they had an affair so they wanted to low-key it for PR reasons. 

By the way, Nicholl has a book coming out on Harry. Timing is everything!!!

Giada De Laurentiis Here's What I'd Cook for Harry & Meghan's Royal Wedding ...

11/28/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Hell yeah! Giada De Laurentiis will get behind the grill for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding ... all they gotta do is ask.

We got the star chef at LAX Monday and had to ask her if she's down to cater the royal wedding ... given she's got SOME royal experience. Giada once cooked for Prince William and Kate Middleton during their trip to Santa Barbara back in 2011.

Definitely sounds like Giada is ready for an encore ... because not only is she down, she's also got a menu in mind. Pick up the phone, Harry. It's gonna be delizioso!!!

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Dish Deets on Engagement 'Can I Say Yes Now?!'

11/27/2017 10:32 AM PST
Breaking News

Prince Harry hadn't even finished his proposal when Meghan Markle kept interrupting -- CAN I SAY YES NOW?!

The newly engaged couple dished details about their engagement in an interview with the BBC ... revealing some pretty spectacular details about how it all went down. According to the couple ... the engagement happened a few weeks ago earlier this month at Harry's Nottingham Cottage inside Kensington Palace.

Harry got down on one knee and made his case ... but apparently a way-too-excited Meghan couldn't and wouldn't let him finish before charmingly butting in and asking, "Can I say yes now?" Adorbs.

And check this out ... Harry included 2 diamonds that belonged to his mother, Princess Diana, in Meghan's engagement ring "to make sure that she's with us on this crazy journey together."

Harry and Meghan met about a year and a half ago, but the relationship was turbocharged just 4 weeks into it ... when they headed to Botswana. Turns out, they never went more than 2 weeks without seeing each other. Completely fooled us.

Again ... congrats!

Meghan Markle Royal Title Up in the Air ... Because of Citizenship Questions

11/27/2017 7:09 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle will become part of the Royal Family next Spring ... the question is whether she'll be able to use the title Her Royal Highness.

As you know, Meghan's an American citizen and the protocol is ... you have to live in England for 5 years to become a British citizen. And here's the key ... you can't use a royal title unless you're a citizen.

In addition to 5 years' residency in the UK, a prospective British citizen must be 18 or over, of "good character" and fluent in the English language. They must also take an oath of allegiance to the Queen.

It's unclear if Meghan can short-circuit the process. It's gotta be helpful she has the Queen's blessing in marrying Harry.

When she does get the title, she will probably become a duchess, like her soon-to-be in-law, Kate Middleton. The rumor is ... Harry will become the Duke of Sussex, and she would become the Duchess of Sussex.

And finally, check this out ... if Meghan has to wait 5 years before becoming a British citizen and before that happens she has a child, that kid will get dual citizenship. If for some reason that child ascends to the throne, it would be the first monarch in British history to be both a U.S. and British citizen.

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry Bachelor Pad Living In Small Apartment

11/27/2017 7:23 AM PST

Meghan Markle will not be living in royal opulence ... not by a long shot.

She'll be moving into Harry's bachelor pad -- aka, Nottingham Cottage. It's a 2-bedroom, 1,324-sq ft home ... closer to a nice apartment than a royal abode.

The Cottage sits on the grounds of Kensington Palace, a stone's throw from where William and Kate live. William and Kate have 22 rooms.

BTW ... Harry will not be the first Royal to live with his fiancee before getting hitched. William and Kate shacked up before their 2011 nuptials.

As for whether Meghan and Harry will live in the Cottage after they get married ... nothing's been made public.

As for Meghan's ring ... it's made of 3 stones -- 2 diamonds from Princess Diana's personal collection and a third stone from Botswana where the couple recently went on holiday.
