MEGHAN AND HARRY DO IT THEIR WAY
If you’ve ever planned a wedding – or even sat near someone going through it – you’ll be familiar with the pressure to invite guests chosen by family elders. Whether it’s that annoying cousin-in-law (your nan just loves their comedy outfits, which will now ruin your pictures), or your parents’ Rotary club friends, these are people you haven’t seen since you were 12, whose presence will be at the expense of one of your best friends. So, when we heard that Harry and Meghan refused to kowtow to royal protocol, declining to invite heads of state ( Theresa May and Donald Trump will be ‘washing their hair’ on 19 May), we cracked open an Aintree-sized mini prosecco. Free at last!
