Royal Wedding round-up: Meghan's father to get a coat of arms, William to miss FA Cup Final + more




Meghan's father, Thomas, is rumored to be getting a coat of arms before the wedding - a tradition before royal weddings and something that Kate's father, Michael, got before her wedding (he received three acorns to represent his children, and a gold stripe to represent Carole Middleton, whose maiden name was Goldsmith). Meghan and Harry will likely get their own conjugal coat of arms in a few years, like Kate and William, who received theirs in 2013 (two years after they married).




William, president of the Football Association, wanted to figure out a way to attend both his brother's wedding and FA Cup Final but decided it wasn't feasible. The wedding is at noon and the game's probably going to start around 5:30 that afternoon, but the evening reception will likely be starting sometime around then.






Meghan's apparently chosen one of her close friends to be her maid-of-honor and it's likely her stylist, Jessica Mulroney.
