To think it's unfair on HRH Catherine

It's been on my mind that a spring wedding is one way to make sure all eyes are on you and not Catherine. As depending on the date chosen she'll either be extremely heavily pregnant or possibly postpartum, she's never really rushed to the celeb demands of having your pre-pregnancy body in 4 weeks. If she has HG that lasts till term she really won't enjoy the day, I remember one heavily pregnant Mum when I got married going home in the end to rest she was struggling that much.

It'll be a dilemma for William as he'll want to celebrate the day, as will Catherine. If she's heavily pregnant or post partum he got really overly drink, I think I'm right in thinking Catherine BF so she can't drink and needs somewhere private to feed. (Plus possibly an outfit that allows for ease of feeding)

I'm wondering if there's already an announcement due for once their married, that Harry & Meghan are expecting, thus the 4/5 month turn around if not quicker, going by my interpretations of Spring. It seems rather rushed.

I understand given Meghan's age it's now or never, I just feel it's a bit harsh on Catherine, as in any scenario she'll not overly get to celebrate the day. She's always been close to Harry, so I assume she'd want to take part and have a time similar to her wedding, partying till the small hours.

A summer wedding would give Catherine & William the luxury of not worrying if baby will arrive imminently, or that Catherine will be postpartum, knackered and really not feel like a part of the day.

I know it's Harry & Meghan's big day, but as I've said he's always been close to his brother and SIL. I honestly thought any announcement would be with the third pregnancy in mind.

I can't believe that he hasn't talked to them about it, and that they will work out a way to manage just fine.

Can I interest you in a saucer of milk, OP?

(Especially if it all happens inside Windsor Castle)

I think you're over thinking and over invested!

Who gives a shit?!

Maybe she is glad that there will be something else to take the media’s attention away from how she looks straight after giving birth!

wowfudge Tue 28-Nov-17 08:28:32

Bloody hell. You are way too invested in other people's lives.

Taffeta Tue 28-Nov-17 08:28:39

It’s Catherine. She’s not going to get trashed, is she? grin

She’ll have nannies looking after the kids, it’s not a normal life.

Wow I think you're way overthinking this, and suggest you get a hobby of read a book! I gave up even reading all that, do you really care that much?? confused

NataliaOsipova Tue 28-Nov-17 08:28:56

I think you're thinking of this like it's a normal family wedding! I should imagine that "getting to celebrate" when the world's press is focused on you and your every word and movement is really rather difficult. She was never going to get to let her hair down and do the Conga with Prince Charles. I suspect the actual "celebrations" will be a private affair, held another time.....

I can't believe I'm commenting on a royal thread but...

1. The date is allegedly a month before her due date
2. I understand she's already resumed some her public appearances so presumably the HG is being reasonably well-connected.
3. She doesn't appear to have suffered to term in previous pregnancies.
4. I expect that the palace considered all these things.
5. She doesn't come across as the sort of woman who just sucks things up. I expect she and William would have been involved in discussions and said if she was unhappy about it.

Fuck's sake

pollythedolly Tue 28-Nov-17 08:29:43

I don’t think Kate gives a shit. Her and William have had their day, the media circus with that and the births of their first two. Probably be glad to have the heat off them for once and probably very happy for Harry.

HuskyMcClusky Tue 28-Nov-17 08:30:00

Good grief.

I’m sure they’ll work it out. grin

I think there are many things in this world that are unfair.

The fact that a woman with a fleet of nannies, personal chefs, trainers, and unlimited resources is attending a family wedding two months after giving birth, is not one of them.

PigletWasPoohsFriend Tue 28-Nov-17 08:30:42

Well tbf all eyes should be in them.

I'm sure they talked to them about it.

With the numerous amounts of designers at their beck and call I'm sure she will manage just fine to get an outfit. hmm

You seem waaayyyyyy overly invested.

TathitiPete Tue 28-Nov-17 08:30:42

Yeah, poor Catherine sad Isn't it terrible how many strangers are overly invested in all the goings on in her life.

Costacoffeeplease Tue 28-Nov-17 08:31:00

You've actually spent time thinking about this? Are you Kate? Or maybe her mum? If not, what the hell does it matter to you?

ghostyslovesheets Tue 28-Nov-17 08:32:00

seriously grin omg !

pastabest Tue 28-Nov-17 08:32:16

Bahaha as if you are that invested in someone's life and feelings you don't even know.

They have staff, it's not like a normal woman struggling at an event with a baby and two children. Or pregnant and two children. Her every need and whim will be met.

And you can drink when you are breastfeeding. Whatever makes you think you can't?

ilovesooty Tue 28-Nov-17 08:32:33

Oh for fuck sake. Seen it all now.

EdithWeston Tue 28-Nov-17 08:33:05

"It seems rather rushed."

About 6 months is absolutely spot on typical for length of a royal engagement.

The Duchess's HG seems to be controlled by mid-pregnancy, and she does some public engagements from about that time onwards.

Wedding details to be announced today, it seems. Quite likely that it'll be in St George's Chapel, Windsor (as Archbishop has said they can have religious ceremony) so admin for Cambridgeshire would be pretty straightforward.

Sarahh2014 Tue 28-Nov-17 08:33:50

They will have planned it so every scenario is covered.unless you're going don't worry about it

I'd love to see her conga with her father in law grin
