With Markle set to convert to her future husband’s religion, deleting all her social media accounts and assume all the roles as a member of the royal family, the 36-year-old had one last hurrah before officially transitioning into her role as a married (royal) woman.
On the weekend of March 3rd, the former Suits actress gathered some of her close friends and spent the day getting pampered at a glam spa at a five-star resort. The fabulous retreat was said to literally be fit for a queen. With details of Markle’s single send-off under wraps, one detail that was definitely leaked was the absence of Markle’s future in-law, Kate Middleton and Markle’s mother, Doria Radlan.
With their absences clearly noted, several started to wonder if there was bad blood between Markle and Middleton and her mother.
As it turns out, rumors of any bad blood between the two were completely shut down, and it was revealed that Middleton’s absence was due to her being seven months pregnant and coming off a full week of doing public appearances. With Middleton expected to give birth in late April, just a few weeks before the Royal wedding, the mother of two needed a rest. As for Markle’s mother, she just couldn’t get across the pond quick enough from her home in LA to attend her daughter’s bachelorette party.
So who exactly was there? According to the London Times and Brides guests supposedly included former reality TV star Millie Mackintosh (who has also been helping Markle plan the wedding), fashion designer Misha Nonoo, and Violet von Westenholz, stylist Jessica Mulroney, Markle’s Suits costar Abigail Spencer and new mom Serena Williams.
If you ask us, this sounds like a fabulous guest list, and we can only imagine what the ladies chatted about.
Markle is expected to assume her title as the first Duchess of Sussex when she marries Prince Harry on May 19th. Are you excited about Prince Harry and Markle’s wedding?
