Will Prince William and Prince Harry’s step-sister attend the royal wedding?.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding is to take place on Saturday May 19, Kensington Palace has announced.
The pair, whose engagement was confirmed in November, are tying the knot at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
American actress Ms Markle has gone against tradition by choosing a Saturday.
Royal weddings usually take place on a weekday. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wed on a Friday and the Queen on a Thursday.
But Harry and his fiancee’s choice avoids the issue of whether the royal celebration should be a bank holiday.
While the wedding list has still yet to be finalised, and according to the Mirror, there’s a faction of the larger “family” which is often overlooked.
For example, Prince William and Prince Harry’s step-sister.
She’s called Laura Lopes and while you may not automatically recognise the name, she’s been on the scene for a while.
40-year-old Laura is the daughter of Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall and Andrew Parker Bowles, a retired British Army officer.
Rather than capitalise on her regal ties, however, Laura prefers to keep a low profile.
As for what we do know about her, according to OK Magazine , she married chartered accountant Harry Lopes in 2006 in Wiltshire.
William and Kate also attended along with 400-500 other guests, so we’re guessing she’s pretty popular too – and that she genuinely gets along with her step-brothers.
Harry (Lopes) and Laura have a ten-year-old daughter called Eliza, who was in fact one of the cute flower girls at Kate and Wills’ own wedding – just not the one who put her hands over ears on the balcony.
They are also parents to twin sons, Louis and Gus.
As for whether she’ll be at Harry and Meghan’s remains to be seen…
