AceShowbiz - Prince William and Kate Middleton's newborn son will miss out on attending his uncle Prince Harry's big wedding to Meghan Markle. Prince Louis, the latest addition to the British royal family, will be almost a month old on May 19, when Harry and Meghan exchange vows in Windsor, England. However, he won't be joining his parents and siblings at the festivities, a Kensington Palace spokesperson confirmed on Friday, May 4.
The celebrations at Windsor Castle will mark Kate's first formal outing as a new mom-of-three. She will be able to watch proudly as her four-year-old son, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte, three, are rumoured to be playing roles in her brother-in-law Harry's wedding, where Prince William will serve as best man.
It has also been announced that former "Suits" actress Meghan will not have a maid of honor. "She has a very close-knit circle of friends and she didn't want to choose one over another," royal representative Jason Knauf explained. "All have been actively involved in helping her prepare for the day and will be there in the days beforehand. She's very happy to have their support."
Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan, who will spend their first night as husband and wife at Windsor Castle, have decided to postpone their honeymoon, choosing instead to take the traditional post-wedding vacation at a later date. "The couple will be going on honeymoon, but not straightaway," Knauf shared. "They will have their first engagement as a married couple in the week after the wedding."
When they do find the time to get away for a romantic break, the couple will reportedly be jetting off to Africa. According to Travel + Leisure, the newlyweds will spend part of their time at Namibia's luxury Hoanib Valley Camp, which is surrounded by mountains, sand dunes and unique wildlife.
The Prince and his bride-to-be previously escaped to Botswana to celebrate Meghan's 36th birthday last year, while the African nation is also where Harry sourced the main diamond for the engagement ring he presented to her in November.
