Why the Queen might not attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

Markle's status as a divorcee could also affect the couple's choice of venue.
Historically, the Church of England wouldn't let divorced people marry again in one of its churches. That law, however, was revoked in 2002. As a result, venues such as Westminster Abbey — where the Queen and Prince William married their respective spouses — and St. Paul's Cathedral — where Prince Charles married Princess Diana in 1981 — are now both available to Prince Harry and Markle.
Whether the couple will choose such a grand venue is up for debate, as Harry has reportedly said he'd rather have a smaller affair.
On Monday morning, the couple announced that they would marry next spring, though an exact date has yet to be announced. Prime Minister Theresa May has publicly said there are no plans for a national holiday to celebrate the nuptials.
