Inside the Buckingham Palace Garden Party with Royal Central’s Chief Reporter


Pippa and her fiancé James Matthews are evidently expecting some classic British rain on their wedding day, and are determined not to let it dampen their guests' spirits.

Pippa caused such a stir for Kate's wedding when she wore a very simple but figure hugging dress to act as Maid of Honour for Kate.

The wedding is taking place at St Marks Church, Englefield, on Saturday 27 May, with the reception expected to be held in the Middleton family garden.

Weddings are unfortunately never stress-free - even if you're Kate Middleton! James and Pippa want "to just feel like they are alone", a source told the outlet. Kate was in attendance while her husband was on an all-boys ski trip in Switzerland the same weekend.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be among the guests as their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte play starring roles as a page boy and bridesmaid. A day later, she returned to the polo field to cheer on her Prince and his brother William - and while at the charity game, Meghan and Harry were photographed kissing in a parking lot. She has been making sure that all eyes are on her and not her sister Kate Middleton. Do you think Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be on their best behavior during the event?

The plush powder rooms, provided by "the foremost provider of luxury toilets' Andyloos, join the huge glass marquee the Middletons had installed earlier this week, as preparations ramp up for the highly anticipated big day on Saturday". On May 20, she's marrying the financier James Matthews, and, once the two are Wednesday, you can go ahead and start calling her Mrs. Matthews, Lady Glen Affric, as long as she says it's OK.

Yesterday the sun shone for the first royal garden party of the year at London's Buckingham Palace.

However, Gossip Cop clarified that Middleton and Prince William are not divorcing nor are they doing secret therapy sessions. It is unclear if Queen Elizabeth will grace the event. The couple will Wednesday on Saturday in front of family and friends at the St Mark's Church in Berkshire. They called her "pretentious" and "over the top". Spencer found fame on Made in Chelsea and subsequently went on to become a reality star.
