Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are getting serious — very serious. Of course, that’s if you believe the rumors. There are numerous reports coming out of England claiming that Harry and Markle are on the road to getting married. And if they do decide to get married, it will be a proper royal wedding at Westminster Abbey, even though Meghan Markle is Jewish and a divorcee.
Also, Wedding bells have finally chimed for the world's most famous bridesmaid.
Pippa Middleton, 35, was catapulted to fame in 2011 as her sister, Kate, married Britain's Prince William.
Middleton's svelte figure and shapely derrière sparked a media frenzy at the wedding. She was dubbed "Her Royal Hotness" and her bottom even ended up with its own Facebook page.
While it may not be royal wedding, it felt like one. The guests included two future kings, Prince William and Prince George, along with her sister, who is now known as the Duchess of Cambridge and is a future queen.

According to U.K. newspaper the Express, there are no official impediments to Prince Harry marrying Megan despite her marital history and religious background.
a spokesperson for the Church said to the Express:
“The Abbey follows the General Synod Ruling of 2002. Since then it has been possible for divorced people to be married in the Church of England,”
Furthermore, people of the Jewish, Buddhist, or Muslim faith are not legally prevented from marrying into the royal family. Markle, who is biracial, is also Jewish on her father’s side and has previously described herself as a Jew in an interview. She was also married to Trevor Engelson, a TV and movie producer, from 2011 and 2013.
There used to be a legal barrier against English royals marrying Catholics, but those were removed in 2015. However, a Catholic who has married a royal cannot become a monarch because the King/Queen of England is the head of the Church of England and therefore must be a Protestant.
Although a Prince Harry-Meghan Markle wedding is technically approved by the Church of England, Harry would still need to get the Queen’s approval before he and the Suits actress can walk down the aisle to royal wedding bells.
It was rumored Prince Harry would bring his girlfriend Meghan Markle, the star of the TV show "Suits," stoking speculation that the wedding might prompt Harry to also pop the question.
But the American actress was not spotted at the church and it remains to be seen if she will show up at the reception.
If she does attend the after party some royal watchers have suggested the excitement might be contagious.
Markle’s invitation to Pippa’s wedding is said to be a very telling sign that the prince and Meghan are serious about this relationship and that we could be hearing news of an upcoming royal wedding sooner than later
