Meghan Markle misses Pippa Middleton's church ceremony but attends the party

While Meghan Markle may have flown all the way to England for Pippa Middleton’s wedding, the 35-year-old Suits star was absent from the ceremony. Much to the disappointment of fans, Prince Harry turned up with his brother Prince William to St. Mark’s Church. The handsome pair matched in their formal attire of morning suits, vests and similar trousers.

This is the second nuptials Harry and Meghan have attended together. In March, the couple, who has been together since summer 2016, traveled to Jamaica for his friend Tom "Skipp" Inskip's wedding. Although this wedding is on a much larger scale, it is just another sign that the 32-year-old Prince and his leading lady are getting more serious. As Harry and Meghan made their way back to Pippa's family home, they were be joined by Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie and her boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, whom are close with the actress as they have many mutual friends in the London society scene.
