Since making it official on Saturday afternoon, there’s been much talk about Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews and the fact that Meghan Markle, the girlfriend of Pippa’s brother-in-law Prince Harry, was not invited to the ceremony.
‘They’ve been dating for a year, what’s the big deal?’ people cried.
‘It’s because the royal family doesn’t support the relationship!’ others claimed conspiratorially.
'Divorcees aren't welcome,' others purported.
But in case you missed it, another star attendee of the couple's nuptials was also banned from bringing a date to the wedding - the groom's younger brother and groomsman, Spencer Matthews.
Listen: The do's and don't's for a 2017 wedding have been named. Post continues...
(If you're wondering why Spencer's name rings a bell, the youngest member of the Matthews family was, for a time, one of the leading cast members of the scripted reality show Made in Chelsea, acted as The Bachelor in the UK's 2012 series, and appeared in the 2015 UK series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here.)
But despite the fact that Spencer is currently dating radio host and model Vogue Williams, he too, like Prince Harry, was not given a plus one for his brother's big day.
