Harry and Meghan will include the public in their wedding by inviting 1,200
specially selected worthies to the grounds of Windsor Castle to greet the newly
married couple as they emerge from St. George’s Chapel. But much like a
Greyhound bus trip, they should plan to pack a PB&J.

Please enjoy the Guardian being shady:

Representatives of the royal family, which has an estimated net worth well in
excess of £400m, have sent letters to these guests encouraging them to bring
their own picnics, in a move described by one invitee as “unfathomable”.

Debrett’s guide to etiquette advises at least six canapés per person pre-lunch
at a wedding, but guests have been encouraged in letters from lord lieutenants,
the Queen’s representatives in the counties, “to bring a picnic lunch as it will
not be possible to buy food and drink on site”.

Damn—a Debrett’s burn.

“Kensington Palace indicated this week that some refreshments and snacks would
be available, but declined to elaborate,” the Guardian added. Never hurts to
bring a picnic lunch or two.

21-year-old Saeed Atcha, the founder of a youth magazine named Xplode, has been
cruising maps in preparation, noting the existence of a supermarket. He told the
Guardian, “There’s a McDonald’s, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to bring in a
filet meal.” It’s statistically very unlikely, but I’m picturing this as the
McDonald’s where Kit Harrington got a black eye defending his date’s honor the
night before his Game of Thrones audition. My money’s on this McDonald’s for the
real royal wedding after-after-after party.

Since Meghan is a commoner maybe inviting commoners is to make her feel at home.

Let us hope that there is no repeat of Khodynka Field.
