Royal wedding: Will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle kiss for TV viewers?


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle glow in the royal wedding spotlight amid suspense over whether the lovebirds will share their post-ceremony kiss for TV viewers.

We know that Meghan Markle’s wild about Prince Harry, and that their fans around the world are eagerly awaiting their wedding ceremony on Saturday. But what we don’t know is the answer to the big bridal question: Will Meghan and Harry share their first kiss after they say “I do” with their television audience?

A kiss is just a kiss unless you’re watching Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding

Romance lovers adore the saying that “a kiss is just a kiss until you find the one you love.” Well, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have found the one to love in each other, and their first post-wedding kiss is viewed as much more than just an ordinary smooch. But will TV viewers enjoy front-row seats in their living rooms when Markle and Prince Harry first lock lips after they say “I do”?

The Sun predicts that Meghan and her real-life Prince Charming will participate in their first kiss almost immediately after exchanging their wedding vows on Saturday at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor. Rather than stand on a balcony to kiss, Harry and Meghan reportedly will kiss on the West Steps of the chapel after the ceremony.

The marriage of the second in line to the British throne was led by the Archbishop of Canterbury and was attended by 1900 guests, including foreign Royal family members and heads of state.

Kate Middleton and Prince William famously kissed on the balcony at the palace after their royal wedding as the crowds cheered. But an NBC insider told The Sun that in contrast to Kate and Will, Harry and Meghan are expected “to kiss when they come out to greet the crowds gathered outside.” If that plan does play out, Prince Harry and Markle will be much closer to their fans than Kate and William.

“For Harry and Meghan, coming out of the chapel is a fitting place,” pointed out the NBC source. “The public’s excitement for them too could mean they will be encouraged to kiss too, so that is why we are expecting that magical moment.”

What can we predict for Harry and Meghan’s first kiss based on Kate and William?

Just like Kate and William, it is known that Prince Harry’s and Meghan Markle’s wedding ceremony is carefully planned. Recounting Kate’s and William’s carefully choreographed ceremony in 2011, ABC News pointed out that “the couple’s balcony kiss was the one wildcard, and it did not disappoint.”

And that same suspense is true of Harry and Meghan as the world awaits their 2018 wedding ceremony. When and where Prince Harry and his Princess Bride will exchange their first kiss after the ceremony has become just as much of a wild card as it was for Harry’s older brother and sister-in-law. What we do know: When Harry’s and Meghan’s smooch does take place, it will mark the moment when Markle goes from Los Angeles actress to a true member of the royal family.

Moreover, although the exact timing for Meghan’s and Harry’s first kiss after their May 19 wedding still remains unknown, their expressed desire to have the world “feel part of the celebrations” is thought to pave the way for a public kiss at some point on Saturday.  Royal wedding correspondent Victoria Arbiter told the Express that Markle and Harry are “so touchy-feely” that TV viewers may also see the couple exchange kisses on their carriage ride through Windsor after the wedding.”
