Markle will sparkle

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE - ANNE MARIE SCAN­LON

‘GET ready. For the first five months of the year, (and that’s just for starters), at any given mo­ment of the day, some­one, some­where, will be say­ing the words ‘Meghan Markle’. Since the Amer­i­can ac­tress be­came en­gaged to Prince Harry, she has al­ready been hailed the saviour of both the Royal Fam­ily and UK, while at the same time be­ing vil­i­fied for pos­ing a threat to the monar­chy and bring­ing about the end of the Bri­tish way of life (as if that would be a bad thing).

She bet­ter get used to it. As the lat­est mem­ber of ‘The Firm’ and unar­guably the best look­ing, she will be the fo­cus of unend­ing at­ten­tion. (No­body say the words ‘Princess Diana’).

In the com­ing months, as the count­down to the Royal Wed­ding con­tin­ues, we the pub­lic will learn every­thing there is to know about MM, and, er, wed­dings in gen­eral. Ex­pect end­less spec­u­la­tion on the sort of dress MM will wear, who will de­sign it, how her hair will look, the shade of her lip­stick and even what canapes will be served on the Big Day.

No doubt lots of air will be given to ask­ing if Trump will be in­vited. (We guess not).

Speak­ing of in­vites, yet more dodgy re­la­tions will be un­earthed. She shouldn’t worry. The groom has his fair share of them. And be­cause Meghan is in her mid-30s, once the knot is tied, she won’t even have ar­rived at the Royal Re­cep­tion be­fore the baby spec­u­la­tion starts.
