The talk at this royal wedding was all about “The” Royal wedding.
“The buzz at the Royal wedding of Queen Elizabeth’s cousin Prince Philip of Serbia to commoner Danica Marinkovic at the White Palace in Belgrade was that Prince Harry would announce his engagement to Meghan Markle during the holidays,” according to a source at last weekend’s union, where celebrations last three days.
Rumors that Harry and Markle would marry started popping up online Wednesday, with Us Weekly reporting that the engagement has already happened and the announcement would come “soon.”
“There were two dozen royals at the wedding and the buzz was about ‘who’s next,’” we’re told.
Markle, who stars on the USA Network program “Suits,” is slated to wrap-up filming in November. While she and Harry did not attend Prince Philip and Marinkovic’s celebration in Serbia, royals including Queen Sophia of Spain attended the grand fete, which was hosted by the groom’s father, Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia.
One of the 800 guests in attendance called it a “fairy tale wedding” that was reminiscent of one very famous 2011 British wedding.
The world watched when Britain’s Prince William made Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge in 2011.
“It transformed the beautiful bride from a commoner into a Princess in the same way Kate Middleton became a royal when she married Prince William,” we’re told. Also in attendance was international travel blogger Valerie Jour, who famously doesn’t show her face on her popular Instagram feed, but that didn’t stop guests from recognizing her.
“She showed her face to the royals,” we’re told.
The newlyweds left on Monday for their honeymoon in Greece.
Now a mother-in-law, Princess Katherine will come to the city to host a benefit at Le Cirque on Oct. 25 for her charity Lifeline New York which supports Serbian orphans and provides medical equipment to hospitals.
