Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will attend Pippa Middleton's wedding together after all -- sort of

One month ago, rumors swirled that Prince Harry's girlfriend, Meghan Markle, would likely not be attending Pippa Middleton's wedding to James Matthews as Harry's date -- due to a "no ring, no bring" policy. After all, Pippa's soon-to-be brother-in-law's girlfriend was reportedly "banned" for the same reason. People have also speculated that Markle wasn't invited because she'd draw too much attention, but she may be on the guest list after all -- sort of.

According to People, the "Suits" actress will accompany Harry to the evening reception on May 20, but you won't see her at the ceremony earlier in the day. As the magazine puts it, "... Protocol prohibits unmarried and un-engaged partners to attend the event, but they are more likely to attend the big bash afterwards, which tends to be less formal."

Could this mean that a wedding of their own is on the horizon? The 32-year-old royal was spotted visiting his lady love in Toronto last week, ahead of Easter weekend, so the two appear to be committed to spending as much time together as possible.

We digress, though. Let's focus on Pippa's big day for now. We found out last week that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be page boy and bridesmaid, respectively -- so if she's worried about anyone stealing her thunder (though we do highly doubt that was ever the case), Markle may be the least of her worries.

While we're left wondering what Markle will wear to the bash, take a peek at her style transformation through the years:
