Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become such a spectacle, in the context of the royal family day-to-day plot, that it now seems they overwhelm any given event even when they aren't actually physically present for it.
After a tumultuous childhood in L.A. that saw her parents split when she was a toddler, Markle headed to Chicago to attend Northwestern.
Princess Zara Tindall, who is also pregnant, arrived at the chapel without her husband Mike Tindall and daughter Mia Grace.
By 2011, Markle had landed her "Suits" role and was engaged to Engelson.
Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leave after attending the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in London, March 12, 2018. Bridebook also expects that the May 19 ceremony will land a spot on the top ten most expensive weddings list.
It includes details of her friendship with Irish golfer Rory Mcllroy, Canadian ice hockey star Michael Del Zotto and her last romance before she met Prince Harry, with chef Cory Vitiello.
The show, however, filmed in NY and then in Canada.
Ms Markle, 36, who will marry Prince Harry next month, was married to Trevor Engelson, a Hollywood producer, for less than two years.
Their 2011 Caribbean wedding involved beach wheelbarrow races and parties, but soon "cracks began to appear", writes Morton per The Sunday Times.
On that occasion, the sister of the bride Pippa Middleton, 34, took centre stage when she was Kate's bridesmaid with a dress highlighting her posterior.
She ended their marriage "totally out of the blue", sending their rings in the mail after walking out with a blender from their West Hollywood home and moving to Toronto. Craddock shared the news on her Instagram account and announced that she was "thrilled" for the opportunity and that "the designs will be a true reflection of them as a couple".
According to the writer, Morton, things did not end well between the two.
Her LA friends "noticed the change in her", he wrote, claiming she cancelled lunches with old pals in favour of friendships with "those who could develop her career".
"Meghan and her friends watched the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, in early September 1997, tears coursing down their cheeks at the poignant moment when the cameras zoomed in on the royal coffin", Morton writes.
Morton quotes a supposed "friend" of Markle's called Ninaki Priddy as revealing, "She was always fascinated by the royal family".
