It has been four days since the talked-about royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle which took place at St. George Chapel in Windsor Palace.

While many are still trying to break down Meghan Markle’s wedding look or compute the estimated cost of the wedding, many things have already happened since the royal wedding Here are some of them.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend first event as newly weds

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made their first public appearance after getting married last Tuesday.

They attended an event held at the gardens of Buckingham Palace in London to celebrate, Prince Charles’, Harry’s father, charity patronages and military affiliations ahead of his 70th birthday this year.

Prince Harry also gave a speech during the event where he spoke about his father.

“His enthusiasm and energy are truly infectious; it has certainly inspired William & I to get involved in issues we care passionately about and do whatever we can to make a difference,” he said.

Meghan’s estranged sister slams royal family

Samantha Markle, the Duchess of Sussex’s estranged sister slammed the Royal Family for their lack of effort and respect to bring Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, to the wedding.

A few days before the wedding, the Palace confirmed that Prince Charles will be the one walking Meghan to the aisle since her father, Thomas Markle, was given medical advice to no longer attend the wedding due to health issues.

Samantha said that Prince Harry should have picked up Thomas from the United States and flew him to England in a private jet.

“I think Meghan and Harry should pick him up [from the US] in a jet and take him to Buckingham Palace. After all, he did miss out on the wedding. I think he should have a lovely tea and a tour,” Samantha said as quoted in an article published on The Sun.

Her father, Samantha added, would have wanted to attend the wedding and walk his daughter to the aisle. Instead, he had to watch everything from a TV screen in Los Angeles.

She also criticized Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother. Samantha admitted she got annoyed with Doria after the latter went around saying that she is the only family member who showed up during Meghan’s wedding.

“For people to say she was the only Markle there is inappropriate. She’s not. She has no business calling herself a Markle anymore. My father has made Meg 99% of what she is today, through education, career opportunities, love and nurturing, her great sense of humour, building her self-esteem,” Samantha stated.

“To omit the person most integral in her development, everybody’s hurt by it. I’m really upset about the lack of respect for him,” she added.

Meghan’s nephew allegedly brought deadly weapon in UK nightclub

A few days after the wedding, news sparked that Meghan’s nephew, Tyler Dooley, was caught after allegedly trying to enter a UK nightclub with a knife

Tyler is one of Meghan’s family members who weren’t invited to the wedding, but the 25-year-old decided to flew to London to take advantage of the big event.

When he was confronted by the doormen, Tyler surrendered a 10cm lock blade knife claiming that he brought the weapon to the UK from the USA because President Donald Trump described London “as being like a war zone”.

Meghan’s nephew left the area before the police arrived and authorities said that no actions were taken against him.
