Pippa Middleton is set to marry long-term boyfriend James Matthews on May 20, and until now Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle has been left off the guestlist due to protocol prohibiting unmarried or un-engaged partners to attend the nuptials.
However, according to PEOPLE magazine, it's been confirmed that while Meghan is not invited to the ceremony she will be at Harry's side for the reception, which will take place at St. Mark’s church in Engelfield.
Official royal protocol aside, Prince Harry and the Suits actress are certainly getting more serious.

A source told The Mail On Sunday that Pippa has informed friends that she is worried about Meghan overshadowing her big day, and is therefore enforcing a strict ‘no ring, no bring’ rule. As Harry and Meghan are neither engaged or married, Harry will not be allowed to bring his girlfriend.
Just last week, when Harry and Meghan attended the wedding of Harry’s best friend in Jamaica, the couple attracted a lot of media attention.
‘She saw how all eyes were on Meghan rather than Lara. The situation was also stressful for Harry. Pippa and her mother Carole wonder whether Meghan’s presence could cause a great deal of unnecessary chaos,’ the source told The Mail On Sunday.
In recent months it seems Meghan and Harry are more loved up than ever. Following their appearance at the wedding in Jamaica, a source said: ‘This the first time that she and Harry have socialised so openly as a couple and is a significant step up in their relationship.’
‘Make no mistake, he is heads over heels about her. This one could go all the way,’ the source also revealed.
Maybe we could have another royal wedding on the cards?
