Did Meghan Markle attend Pippa Middleton and James Matthews‘ wedding ceremony?
The couple tied the knot at St. Mark’s Church at a private estate in Englefield, Berkshire in England Saturday in front of family and friends.
Harry was seen arriving via a private entrance, a source told E! News exclusively, and unlike the bride and groom and many of their other guests, he was not photographed there by the paparazzi who gathered outside. It was initially thought Meghan may have arrived with the prince but she was not spotted.
Another source had told E! News earlier in the week that they had planned to use the private entrance in advance, adding. “The other door is how guests who don’t want to be on camera will enter the church.”
“Right now Harry and Meghan are leaning towards not wanting to attract extra attention, especially on a day that’s not about them,” the source said. “It takes the pressure off.”
It is unclear if she will attend the reception, set to take place at the bride’s parents’ home.
Harry was later photographed at the wedding walking with his brother Prince William, who arrived at the wedding with wife and Pippa’s sister Kate Middleton and their kids Prince George, who served as a page boy, and Princess Charlotte, who was a flower girl.

Kensington Palace had confirmed Pippa and Harry’s romance in November. The actress’ attendance at the wedding would signal how serious their relationship has become, as she has never been confirmed to have appeared at an event involving any of his family members before.
In March, Megan and Harry attended his best friend‘s wedding in Jamaica. Over the past few months, the two have also since spent time together in Toronto, where she lives and films Suits, Norway and his native London.

Prior to the big event, a source told E! News that Prince Harry and Markle were focused on remaining as undercover as possible for a couple as buzzed-about as them.
“Right now Harry and Meghan are leaning towards not wanting to attract extra attention, especially on a day that’s not about them,” the insider shared. “It takes the pressure off.”
As for the night ahead, upwards of 300 guests will gather at Carole Middleton and Michael Middleton‘s residence to raise a glass of bubbly to the happy couple. The reception will be held in a stunning glass enclosing that was built across three days on their 18-acre property.
“It’s going to be magical,” a local told E! News. “There will be floral arrangements from top to bottom, it’s going to be magnificent.”
Meghan stepping out for Pippa’s wedding all but cements the seriousness of the duo’s relatively new relationship, which many believe is headed to a wedding of their very own in the near future. In November, Kensington Palace confirmed Harry and Meghan’s relationship.
“Harry is truly in love,” a source told E! News in January. “They’re very serious.”
Only time will tell if Meghan catches the bouquet! Fingers crossed, of course.
