David Hasselhoff and Hayley Roberts: Married!

It's been a little over two years since David Hasselhoff became engaged to Hayley Roberts.

The famous actor is 66, and his fiancee is 38. 

But she's no longer his fiancee -- she's his wife. The two are now officially married!

Us Weekly reports that David Hasselhoff's rep confirmed to them that he and Hayley have married.

The two tied the knot on Tuesday, July 31.

The long-awaited nuptials took place in the southern region of Puglia, Italy.

Italy is easily one of the most romantic places to have a destination wedding.

And we also have a few details about the ceremony itself.

According to The Blast, the 66-year-old actor and the 38-year-old model did not have one of those huge productions of a wedding, but they did invite guests.

The guest list was limited to close friends and, of course, family, giving the ceremony an intimate feeling.

Among the guests, of course, were David Hasselhoff's daughters Taylor, 28, and Hayley, 25.

(No, that is not a typo -- in case it has slipped your mind, his wife and daughter not only have the same first name, they spell it the same way)

We're sure that they were overjoyed at getting to witness the loving union between these two longtime lovers.

This romance has been blazing for years -- ever since David and Hayley (his wife, not his daughter) met in a random encounter at a hotel, way back in 2011.

Hayley asked him for his autograph. He agreed -- and asked for her number in exchange.

That's probably not the response that she expected from the Baywatch and Knight Rider alum, but they started dating.

Then, in 2016, on a romantic picnic lunch in Malibu, he proposed to her.

And she said yes.

David knew that marrying someone new -- especially someone so much younger than he is -- was going to be a little different for his daughters.

"I told my girls what I was going to do," he actor shared after announcing the engagement in 2016. "And they were both really supportive."

"It’s tough," he said. "No one wants to see their parents split up."

That is mostly true.

"But they love Hayley," David said. "And they’re just happy for me."

The age difference isn't the hugest in the world. Unlike some celebrities, he's not marrying a woman as young as or younger than his daughters.

We imagine that the only real awkward part of this relationship is that Hayley (his wife) and Hayley (his daughter) have the same name.

But plenty of families have multiple people with the same name, and they've had seven years to become accustomed to it.

Our heartfelt congratulations go out to the newly married couple.

We hope that their marriage brings them many years of blissful happiness.

Kaley Cuoco Shares the BEST Wedding Photo, Featuring Her Furbabies

Three weeks ago, Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook got married! And while their honeymoon was wasn't exactly picture perfect, the actual wedding was beautiful.

Now, Kaley has taken to social media to share the best wedding photo of them all.

It features the newly married couple with their five most important guests.

"#tbt," Kaley wrote on Instagram late Thursday evening. "To what I think is the best family wedding photo ever."

While some would argue that it's not really a throwback if it's from a few weeks ago and you're only now sharing it, it's difficult to dispute the rest of her claim.

In this precious photo, we see Kaley and Karl ... and their family.

Their four dogs stand lovingly with them, but that's not all.

Look in the background and you'll see Kaley's horse.

Kaley Cuoco with Dogs, Before Her Wedding

Kaley and Karl actually have a number of pets, including a couple of rescue pit bulls named Shirley and Norman.

In the photo at the top, you can see Kaley holding little Ruby in her arms for the portrait.

The couple has multiple show horses, plus a mini-horse named Shmooshy.

Kaley is particularly passionate about pit bulls, in part because they have a massively unfair reputation that leads to their mistreatment and even death.

Contrary to how they are portrayed by alarmists and in the media, pit bulls are naturally gentle dogs with a caretaker's disposition. Like humans, they can become aggressive if they have been tormented with violence or otherwise mistreated.

Biologically, the most aggressive dogs are actually dachshunds. (Yes, really)

Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook, Wedding Dance

Before Kaley and Karl even began to date, she was telling friends and family that her next man needed to be a dog lover.

It is so important for couples -- particularly those looking for a long-term commitment with each other -- to have certain things in common.

Sometimes, religious differences can be managed -- especially if a couple isn't planning on having children.

But if one loves dogs and the other does not, that's a potential problem.

And plenty of dog-lovers would consider someone not lovings dogs to be not just a deal-breaker, but a huge red flag.

Kaley Cuoco Reception Photo

As we mentioned, their wedding was great. Their honeymoon wasn't exactly a romantic dream.

In fact, Kaley Cuoco spent the honeymoon in the hospital, undergoing some much-needed shoulder surgery.

Fortunately, the surgery was not emergency and had been planned about a year in advance.

It was non-urgent, and Kaley decided that she'd rather wait to recover from surgery (recovery is usually painful and is never fun) until after she and Karl tied the knot.

She's spent the past couple of weeks recovering at home.

If Kaley's family wedding photo rubbed you the wrong way -- maybe because you object to the idea that dogs (or a horse) can be family -- keep that in mind.

Specifically, when you're dating. If you don't feel that special connection to dogs or horses or other animals, maybe find someone who feels the way that you do.

We're so glad that Kaley found Karl, because the two of them can share their passion for their furbabies within their relationship.

Mike Sorrentino to Lauren Pesce: Let’s Hurry and Get Married Before I Go to Jail!

Well, he might be living up to his nickname more than ever these days, because Mike Sorrentino is stuck in a seriously complex situation.

If you watched Jersey Shore Family Vacation this season, you know that Mike proposed to Lauren Pesce, she said yes, and plans are already in place to populate the tri-state area with dozens of mini-Sitches.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino & Lauren Pesce

Unfortunately, there's a minor roadblock standing in the way of Mike and Lauren's domestic bliss.

When the focus briefly shifted from Ronnie's never-ending emotional meltdown, JSFV reminded us that Sorrentino is facing prison sentence for tax evasion.

While Mike has gone to great lengths to clean up his act in the years since his legal entanglement began, it's unlikely that he'll be able to avoid doing some hard time.

Which means, of course, that he and Lauren don't have the luxury of a long engagement.

“They are working out the exact date now, as well as the location for the wedding and venue for the reception,” a source close to the couple tells Radar Online.

Mike Sorrentino Proposes to Lauren Pesce

Mike is scheduled to be sentenced on September 7, and his lawyers have reportedly informed him that he should be prepared to serve at least two years behind bars.

Fortunately, Lauren says she's willing to wait for Mike for as long as she needs to.

“They are both hoping for leniency. But it does not matter to Lauren how long he has to go to prison,” the insider says.

“She will stand by him no matter what. She will be visiting him in prison as often as she is allowed.

Even though Mike might not begin serving his sentence until several months after he's sentenced, he and Lauren are planning to tie the knot this summer, just to be safe.

The original plan was for Sorrentino and Pesce to get hitched on the second season of JSFW, but a rushed production schedule put the kibosh on that plan.

The Situation Proposes!

But don't worry, unlike past Shore weddings, the entire guido crew will be in attendance, and most of Mike's castmates will be a part of the wedding party.

(We're guessing Ronnie was the only one left out.)

Insiders say Mike and Lauren hope to spend at least four months living as man and wife before his sentence begins.

And of course, they'll be hard at work making those little baby Situations.

As difficult as Mike's current situation is, those who know him best say he's never been happier -- and they credit Lauren with saving his life.

“Everyone is just so proud of Mike for getting sober Opens a New Window. , and are just as close with Lauren as they are with him," says the source.

Cardi B and Offset: Married!

Cardi B and Offset are expecting their first child and the public believed that the two were engaged. They are not.

As it turns out, Cardi and Offset got married in a secret wedding ceremony ... all the way back in September of 2017. The public engagement that we all saw was just a sham.

Sounds fake, right? But Cardi herself has confirmed the news. Take a look:

Cardi B and Offset

Cardi B prefaced her confirmation by tweeting:

"This why i name my album 'Invasion of privacy' cause people will do the most to be nosey about your life," she wrote, commenting on one of the great pitfalls of being a celebrity.

Cardi then went on to express a degree of fatalism about how fans can be intrusive.

Succinctly, she wrote: "Welp f--k it."

"There are so many moments that I share with the world," Cardi's tweet began.

That makes sense, given that she's on social media in the first place.

Cardi B Secret Wedding Confession

The "Bodak Yellow" singer goes on to explain that she still very much values her privacy.

"And there are moments," Cardi writes. "that I want to keep for myself!"

That makes sense. She may be a public figure -- and by choice -- but she still has a right to privacy.

Cardi explains: "Getting married was one of those moments!"

Note that she says was. As in, she has already done so.

She is already confirming what many fans already believed -- that she and Offset are not merely engaged, but have gotten married.

The wedding was secret, but the marriage is no longer under wraps.

Offset and Cardi B

Many fans are of course wondering why Cardi would not only keep it private, but have a secret wedding in the first place.

She understands that, and so she does the best that she can to explain her reasoning.

"Our relationship was so new," Cardi writes.

That is not normally cited as a reason for marriage, but okay.

She then describes how the two of them were "breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing to do."

Cardi acknowledges these struggles, "but we [were] so in love."

Ah, yes, love. Usually a healthy component in marriages.

"We didn't want to lose each other," Cardi explains.

Cardi B at 2018 MET Gala

Cardi even sheds some light on how this secret wedding went down.

"We found someone to marry us," Cardi writes. "And she did, just the two of us and my cousin."

To clarify, we're reasonably confident that she's saying that her cousin is the one who officiated the marriage. Cardi and her cousin did not both marry Offset.

Cardi describes the powerful occassion.

"I said I do," Cardi writes. "With no dress, no makeup, and no ring!"

Hey, plenty of people have nude weddings. You don't need a dress to say "yes."

So Cardi explains the very public proposal that Offset made -- a proposal that the world now knows was a sham.

"I appreciate and love my husband so much for still wanting for me have that special moment that every girl dreams of," Cardi gushes.

She describes "when he got down on his knee and put a ring on my finger and he did that for me!!"

(Has anyone else noticed that her writing rhymes a lot?)

Cardi B & Offset Image

Cardi finishes her message.

"Well now since you lil nosey f--ks know," Cardi writes with what we assume is a playful tone. "At least ya can stop saying I had a baby out of wedlock."

That's fair. Though that sort of thing really shouldn't matter.

It's worth noting that Cardi B's televised wedding, of which so many fans had fantasized, could have been worth $1 million.

Did nosy fans screw up that whole idea ... or was Cardi never going to have a big, official wedding anyway?

Congratulations to Cardi on her secretly wedded bliss. And extra congratulations to Offset, since he landed an incredibly gorgeous and talented woman.

Kat Von D and Rafael Reyes: MARRIED!!!

Congratulations are in order for Kat Von D!

And her HUSBAND, Rafael Reyes!

Kat Von D is Pregnant

That's right, yesterday Kat married Rafael, also known as Leafar Seyer, his stage name with his band, Prayers.

Or, well they were technically already married -- they tied the knot back in February in a quickie ceremony.

Back then, she took to Instagram to call Rafael "my soul's mate, my mind's twin, my best friend," and he was pretty gushy about her too, calling her "the girl of my dreams."

And even though it's only been a few months since then, it looks like they're more in love than ever, since they had their big wedding this weekend!

The whole thing really is just so sweet, and also so stylish -- wait till you see Kat's dress!

But before the actual wedding -- on Friday after the rehearsal dinner -- Kat took to social media once again to express her absolute happiness, along with a picture of some flowers.

Kat Von D flowers

"Such a beautifully emotional day today," she wrote, explaining that the next day she and Rafael "will have our wedding ceremony for our close friends + family."

"This has been the sweetest, most stress-free experience where we continuously fell in love with each other all over again with each day counting down."

As for the flowers, she said that they are three carnations that a friend brought them, and that they "represent him, me, and our sweet baby boy we are adding to our family."

Because in case you missed it, she's pregnant, too!

"All I can say right now," Kat continued, "is that I am so grateful fo my dear friends, and for my sweet husband."

"Lastly, thank you all for the love and for understanding that starting tomorrow we will most likely be stepping away from our phones for a while to be as present as possibly on such a beautiful day."

But thankfully, Rafael did grab his phone to give us a quick little peak at the beautiful bride!

Kat Von D Wedding Dress

Can you even handle this beautiful Beetlejuice realness?!

In the caption of the photo, Rafael told us that "In a couple hours I'll be walking down the aisle with the love of my life," and he added "EN VIDA Y EN MUERTE," which is what they've both been writing in their captions about each other for a while now.

It translates to "in life and in death," which is nice, right?

We don't have too much more information on the wedding yet, since they do seem to be off enjoying this special time together.

But in case you wanted more info on that amazing dress, it's by designer Adolfo Sanchez!

A friend was also kind enough to share a photo from the reception -- you can get a full look at the dress, plus the kind of decorations you'd expect from a Kat Von D wedding.

The friend congratulated the couple, saying "You are both beautiful people and deserve a lifetime of happiness together. Thanks for letting me be part of your amazing wedding!"

Kat Von D ceremony

And honestly, in case you're not getting our feelings on this, it really does look like it was an amazing wedding.

For the record, this is Kat's second marriage -- she was married to tattoo artist and Ink Master judge Oliver Peck from 2003 to 2007.

(She did have a string of bad relationships and engagements between then and now, but let's not bring up such bad memories during such a happy time.)

This is Rafael's first marriage, but he does have a daughter from a previous relationship.

In a few months, they'll welcome their baby, a boy they've said they'll name Leafar.

Once again, congratulations!!!

Royal Wedding 2018: The Official Portraits Are Here!!

Meghan Markle didn't merely marry Prince Harry this past Saturday.

She married into Prince Harry's famous and very wealthy family.

And this development has now been driven home via the release of the official Royal Portraits from Kensington Palace.

Official Royal Wedding Photo

Snapped in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle after Meghan and Harry magical carriage procession through London, the picture were shot by fashion photographer, Alexi Lubomirski.

This is the same artist who took the couple’s memorable engagement photos at Frogmore House in Windsor late last year.

The first image (above) is a truly epic gathering of the entire royal family (minus four-week-old Prince Louis, who stayed home at the palace because... come on, he's four weeks old).

Include in this snapshot is the little bridal party and Meghan’s proud mother, Doria Ragland.

(As you've likely read about by now, Meghan's father, Thomas, suffered a heart attack last week and then underwent a heart procedure. He was unable to make the trip.)

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs from their Wedding day," opens the Kensington Palace Twitter caption alongside this photo, adding:

"These photographs were taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski at Windsor Castle, following the carriage procession. #RoyalWedding."

Also featured in the photo set is a picture of just Harry and Meghan with their adorable page boys and bridesmaids.

And it's beyond precious...

Meghan, Harry and Kids

Led by Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eight other children include several of Harry and Meghan’s godchildren and children of their friends.

They are:

Florence van Cutsem, 3; Remi Litt, 6 and her sister Rylan, 7; Ivy Mulroney, 4; Zalie Warren, 2; Jasper Dyer, 6; and twins Brian and John Mulroney, 7.

"The duke and duchess would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said in a statement on Monday.

“They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and those who watched on television across the U.K., Commonwealth and around the world."

Finally, this three-photo release concludes with a romantic snapshot of the brand new bride and groom, looking as happy as two people can be:

Royal Bride and Groom

Meghan and Harry's wedding came six months after the couple announced their engagement to the world.

It went off without a hitch, but with plenty of memorable moments.

Markle, for example, paid tribute to Princess Diana by wearing something blue.

She also stunned and inadvertedly seduced millions of people around the world by changing into a sleek white dress for her evening reception.

Just... wow, right?

Royal Party Time

There was also the kiss outside the chapel and the rendition of "Stand By Me" that was sung right before Meghan and Harry exchanged vows.

The vows did not include the word "obey," which many have taken as a subtle pro-feminism stance by Markle's part.

We approve.

Check out the exchange below:

“It has been an incredible honor and privilege to document The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family; from the engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding and family portraits on Saturday,” Lubomirski said in a statement, concluding:

“This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget.”

The same goes for all who witnessed this blessed event.

Relive our favorite moments and fashion statements below:

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: Watch Them Exchange Vows!

Hey! Prince Harry got married to Meghan Markle on Saturday, May 19!

Perhaps you've heard.

Perhaps you've also read through the extensive coverage ofthe Royal Wedding on The Hollywood Gossip or, for some reason, on other websites around the Internet.

But we're guessing there's one major moment that you may have missed.

And that was arguably the most romantic and important moment of all...

... the moment Meghan and Harry vowed to love each other for all of eternity.

In the following video, we're first treated Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir singing an incredible rendition of "Stand By Me."

From there, we're taken to the Royal Exchanging of Vows, as Markle rocks her amazing wedding gown and then she and Harry make certain special promises to each other.

The footage may need to be watched with a box of Kleenex by your side.

"I Meghan, take you, Harry, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward," says Harry to open his vows, adding:

"For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God's holy law. In the presence of God I make this vow."

And then Markle echoes this sentiment:

I Harry, take you, Meghan, to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God's holy law.

In the presence of God I make this vow.

Following his marriage, Harry is now the Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel and will be known around Kensington Palce as His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex.

Markle, meanwhile, is Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex.

Pretty cool, huh?

But those titles would not be possible without the vows exchanged below.

Watch the moving video now:

Meghan Markle: How Did She Honor Princess Diana at the Royal Wedding?

As you've no doubt heard by now, Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in an unforgettable ceremony at Windsor Castle this morning.

At this point, virtually every aspect of the royal wedding has been dissected on social media and in the tabloids.

Meghan Markle Wedding Close-Up

There have been in-depth discussions about Meghan and Harry's celebrity guests; the moving ceremony that incorporated elements of the cultures in which both newlyweds were raised; and of course, the fabulous dress worn by the new Duchess of Sussex.

But some of the more subtle details of the ceremony have been largely overlooked.

For example, there's been little coverage of the moving ways in which Meghan and Harry paid tribute to his late mother, Princess Diana.

The most poignant tribute to the late Princess Di may have been the inclusion of her most beloved flower in Meghan's 16-foot veil.

"The spring blooms include Forget-Me-Nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales’ favorite flower," a statement from Kensington Palace read.

Meghan and Harry's Second Outfits

"The couple specifically chose them to be included in Ms. Markle’s bouquet to honor the memory of the late Princess on this special day."

For her second outfit of the day (pictured above) Meghan combined her something borrowed with her something blue by sporting an aquamarine ring from Princess Diana's private collection.

Meg also kept an unofficial British tradition alive by collaborating with a female British designer to craft the perfect dress, just as Di and Kate Middleton did.

As for Harry, his signals that his mother was on his mind were a bit more subtle but no less potent.

Royal watchers believe Harry's tendency to bite his lower lip was inherited from Diana:

"This is a micro-expression," human behavioral expert Susan Constantine tells Good Housekeeping.

Markle Wedding Dress

"In this deeply personal moment, Harry is trying to conceal his emotions."

And that's not the only way in which Harry's body language spoke volumes, as royal experts noted that he flouted custom by watching Meg walk down the aisle:

"At a British wedding, the groom and his best man (or supporter) will face the altar as the bride walks down the aisle," says Myka Meira of Beaumont Etiquette.

"He won’t turn to look at her until she is beside him."

Those Brits, they're an understated bunch.

Check out more highlights from Harry and Meghan's big day in the gallery below:

Royal Wedding Dress Debate: Who Wore It Better?

On Saturday afternoon, it finally happened.

As documented in detail, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married in London.

The former Suits actress and the son of Princess Diana said "I Do" in front of hundreds of guests in attendance at St. George's, not to mention thousands lining the street outside and millions watching at home.

Markle Wedding Dress

But we're not here right now to talk about those two romantic words.

We're here to discuss four equally famous words:

Who. Wore. It. Best.

The subjects in this case are the two Royal Brides from the past decade, Kate Middleton and Mrs. Markle.

The former, of course, tied the knot with Prince William back in 2011 in an event whose anticipation we never thought could be topped until today.

At the time, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a lovely lace Alexander McQueen gown designed by Sarah Burton, the fashion house's creative director.

The now-legendary gown featured long lace sleeves, a v-neckline and an extremely long train.

Kate’s dress was also composed of French Chantilly lace and English Cluny lace throughout the bodice, skirt and underskirt.

Here. Take a look below in order to refresh your memory:

Kate Middleton Wedding Dress

Markle, meanwhile, went with Givenchy.

She donned an ensemble by the fashion house's creative director Clare Waight Keller.

It featured a boat neckline bodice, long sleeves and a sheer cascading veil adorned with lace trim.

The delicate veil was actually made from silk tulle and it included a trim of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza.

Check it out here:

Meghan Markle Wedding Gown

Both women looked gorgeous. Stunning. Beautiful in every way possible.

About this there can be no debate.

But let's be honest now: While the world is standing up and applauding Meghan and Harry on their big day and wishing them the very best of luck, they're also engaged in a different kind of debate.

It's the kind summed up by the quartet of words we jotted down above:

Who wore her Royal Wedding Dress best, Middleton or Markle?

Go ahead and vote the poll below to make your opinion known:

Fashion Face-Off!

You must pick one: Who wore her Royal Wedding Dress best, Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton? View Poll »

It's worth noting that Middleton's dress grew to be so iconic and so memorable that H&M designed a similar version that retails for the affordable price of $299.

Will Markle's gown create such demand?

Will designers be lining up to essentially copy it and offer it at a discount to the masses?

It's far too early to say.

However, this much we can state with certainty:

Prince William and Prince Harry are both very lucky men. They married stunning women with terrific fashion taste.

Everyone here is a winner in the broad sense of the word... but only one of these brides can be a winner in the specific sense of this post.

So we ask again: Which Royal Wedding Dress do you like best?

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s Star-Studded Wedding: Which Celebs Were Invited?

Moments ago, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were married in an unforgettable ceremony at Windsor Castle.

Meghan looked flawless in a Givenchy dress, and Harry was dapper as always in his military uniform.

Harry and Meghan Kiss!

Which is all to the good, as the newlyweds had some A-list guests competing for the spotlight.

Royal weddings are typically attended by a few celebrities, but they're generally not as star-studded as Harry and Meghan's.

It's a testament to the strength of Meghan's Hollywood ties that some of the biggest names in the entertainment world made the trip to London for her big day.

For starters, the closest thing that America has to a queen - Oprah Winfrey herself - was in attendance.

Sadly, she didn't give in to the temptation to start handing out cars to the assembled dignitaries.

Oprah at the Royal Wedding

Of course, Oprah certainly wasn't the only A-lister on hand.

Among the few that publicly confirmed in advance that they would be attending were George and Amal Clooney.

Amal turned heads in a yellow Stella McCartney dress with an asymmetrical train.

The human rights attorney's connection to Meghan is a powerful one - sources say she advised the actress on London hairdressers shortly after Markle made her move to the UK.

Needless to say, ties don't get much stronger than that.

The Clooneys are There

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian were also on hand.

Alexis is a co-founder of the social media platform Reddit.

Serena, of course, needs no introduction.

Williams rocked a blush cocktail dress and got into the spirit of a royal wedding with some elaborate headgear.

Speaking of international sports icons, it wouldn't be a major UK social event if the Beckhams weren't in attendance.

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian!

Yes, Posh and Becks looked stylish as ever matching black ensembles.

Very subdued. Kim and Kanye would be proud.

Victoria might be pulling double duty today, as its being rumored that the Spice Girls will perform at Harry and Meghan's reception.

It's sort of unfair of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex to pull off such a baller event right at the beginning or wedding season.

Being a bridesmaid in your former dorm mate's ceremony next week just can't measure up, ya know?

David and Victoria Beckham at the Royal Wedding

Also in attendance were Elton John, Priyanka Chopra, Joss Stone, and of course, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Meghan's onscreen love interest - Suits star Patrick J. Adams - also made the guest list.

He posted a loving tribute to his former co-star on Twitter last night:

"Going to bed now and thinking a lot about the strange surreal and wonderful day my friend Meghan is going to have tomorrow. Meghan - wherever you are - we are so grateful to be here to watch you both take this monumental step together," he wrote, adding:

"Love deeply and live well."

Sound advice, and we're sure both Meghan and Harry took it to heart.

Meghan Markle-Prince Harry Wedding: The Dress! The Guests! The Photos!

Well, it's official, folks!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are married, and the former Suits actress is now a member of the royal family.

In most respects, the ceremony resembled previous royal weddings.

But in several important ways, Harry and Meghan made it their own.

Meghan wore a surprisingly simple Givenchy dress featuring hand-embroidered designs of flowers from every Commonwealth country.

Harry was decked out in full military regalia.

Both parties were openly head over heels with one another, displaying emotion we're not accustomed to seeing from the royals.

Here's a complete list of the fashion statements and other highlights from Harry and Meghan's big day:

1. The Royal Couple

Getting hitched
Meghan arrived at the ceremony decked out in a Givenchy gown that carried special symbolic meaning related Prince Harry's appointment as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.

2. A Special Tribute

Meghan's five-meter veil featured hand embroidered designs representing flowers from every Commonwealth country.

3. The Tiara

Laughing in her dress
As expected, Meghan also paid tribute to the royal women who came before her. The tiara that Meghan wore was provided by Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

4. A Little History

At their wedding
The diamond bandeau of the tiara was made in 1932. The brooch at its center was created way back in 1893

5. Woke Wedding

The royal train
The ceremony reflected Harry and Meghan's social conscience in several ways. Meghan made a feminist statement by walking part-way down the aisle alone, and her dress was designed by Clare Waight Keller, Givenchy's first female artistic director.

6. The Bouquet

There's a bit of history hidden in Meghan's bouquet, as well. Each previous royal bride dating back to Queen Victoria planted a bit of myrtle from their own bouquet for use in future ceremonies.

Meghan Markle to Make "Bold Feminist Statement" at Royal Wedding (Report)

Well, folks, we're just hours away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Predictions for what you can expect as the global media continues to foam at the mouth include:

Eyeing Harry

Yet another rundown of how terrible Meghan's family is; talking head-types pretending anyone actually watched the show Suits; and of course, painstaking second-by-second breakdowns of how the actual ceremony will play out, as though you've never seen a freakin' wedding before.

To be fair, tomorrow's ceremony is sure to be more interesting than royal weddings past, thanks largely to a last-minute curveball thrown by Meghan's lame-ass dad.

As you may have heard, Thomas Markle will not be attending his daughter's wedding for reasons that vary depending on whom you ask/believe.

The most likely explanation seems to be that Thomas is embarrassed that he was busted selling staged paparazzi photos to British media outlets, so he's decided to make the situation worse by bailing on the wedding entirely.

The decision created quite a stir, as Thomas was supposed to symbolically give Meghan away before she joins Harry at the altar.

Fortunately, it wasn't long before a suitable plan B emerged.

This morning it was reported that Prince Charles would walk Meghan down the aisle, but now it seems that's only partially true.

CNN is now claiming that Meghan will "make a bold feminist statement" by proceeding down the first stretch of the aisle "unescorted."

Of course, actual solitude is for peasants, and royals are never really alone, even when they're "alone."

So when CNN says "unescorted" they really mean Meghan will be joined by her bridesmaids and page boys, "with a senior church figure walking ahead."

The Donald's favorite news network also points out that Charles is no stranger to the task of walking blushing brides down the aisle.

Harry! And Megan!

In 2016, he escorted Alexandra Knatchbull during her wedding to Thomas Hooper - and who could forget the famed Knatchbull-Hooper wedding?

Just kidding, we have no idea who these people are.

Anyway, it's cool that Meghan is using her time on the world's biggest stage to make a statement that's sure to inspire other young women.

But our favorite part of this story might be the fact that Harry's grandfather, 96-year-old Prince Philip, will be in attendance less than two months after undergoing hip surgery.

We're sure he'll be there primarily to support his grandson and new granddaughter-in-law.

But we like to think he's at least partially motivated by a desire to make Thomas Markle look like a little bitch.

Meghan Markle Makes Stunning Wedding Decision, Snubs Her Own Family

Meghan Markle has shocked the world.

We're barely even exaggerating here.

Nearly the entire world has moderate to major interest in Meghan Markle's wedding to Prince Harry tomorrow, which means millions and millions of people are likely surprised by what the bride-to-be just decided.

Markle, M

Kensington Palace announced on Friday that Markle has asked Prince Charles to carry out the second most important duty of anyone at her ceremony tomorrow.

(The most important, of course, being Harry's job of vow recital and bride kissing.)

He'll be walking her down the aisle.

"Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel on her Wedding Day,” the Palace statement reads, concluding:

“The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way."

Markle had hoped her father would give her away to Harry, but he recently underwent a heart procedure and cannot make the trip.

Most observers had assumed that Markle would therefore be walked down the aisle by her mother.

We can't help but therefore wonder whether this last-minute change was truly Markle's decision... or if it was forced upon her by the Palace, which may not want any members of Markle's family front and center for this monumental occasion.

(Markle's mom hasn't done or said anything controversy. But the former actress has been slammed left and right by her half-brother and half-sister, neither of whom are invited to the wedding.

And both of whom suck a whole lot.)

An insider insists to People Magazine, however, that Markle is behind this surprising decision.

“It was Meghan’s wish and she is grateful for the Prince of Wales to be doing it,” this source claims.

Meghan and the Prince

Charles, of course, is the father of Prince William and Prince Harry -- but he is not without his own history of scandal.

He infamously cheated on Princess Diana prior to splitting from the beloved Royal many decades ago.

Thomas Markle, meanwhile, lives a rather reclusive life in Mexico.

He isn't especially close with his daughter, but he doesn't have a bad relationship with her, either.

Aside from his unfortunate health concerns, Thomas was at the center of controversy last week after admitting that he accepted money from the paparazzi in exchange for staged photos.

He likely didn't mean any real harm by agreeing to this arrangement, but making oneself into a public spectacle is a giant no-no in the universe of the Royal Family.

Said Markle, through a spokesperson, after her dad officially backed out of the wedding:

"Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.

"I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday."

A global audience will be tuning in for the event, which has sort of become a nightmare for one of its participants.

“This poor girl. Your wedding, everyone says, ‘It’s your day. It’s your day,’” said Amy Schumer this week on Australia’s Fitzy & Wippa podcast. “She’s like, ‘No it’s not.'

"She has to meet all these foreign dignitaries she’s never met before. There’s so much pressure. Can you imagine having a worse wedding?"

Not really, no.

We hope the ceremony goes as smoothly as possible on Saturday and we hope Markle has the bes time EVER on her honeymoon.

She deserves it.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry: Making a Baby ASAP After Wedding!

In case you somehow haven't heard by now, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be married on Saturday with their loved ones looking on.

Meghan's family won't be there, of course, but we assume they'll check it out on TV if there's nothing else on.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: In Love!

Anyway, the ceremony is sure to feature all the glitz and glamor and bedazzled, horse-drawn carriages that have made previous royal weddings so memorable.

But this time there's a giant elephant in the room in the room, and he's wearing a diaper.

Just ten weeks after she says "I do," Meghan will turn 37.

That's certainly not old, by any means, and anyone with functioning eyeballs can see that Meghan is a gorgeous woman who could convincingly play a character a decade her junior.

Unfortunately, it's a sad fact of human anatomy that the uterus is incapable of fooling a casting director.

Meghan Markle with Her Prince

That's our very idiotic way of saying that if Harry and Meghan want kids, they better work quickly.

And according to a new report from Radar Online, they're planning to do exactly that.

“Harry and Meghan want to get pregnant as quickly as possible after their wedding,” a source tells the site.

“They both know that as Meghan gets older, it can get increasingly harder to conceive – and they are both keenly aware of her vulnerability to health complications and the chance of miscarriage the older she gets.”

And, of course, they're both well aware of what's at stake.

Megan and Harry

If Meghan produces a male heir within the first year of marriage, her family will be gifted with four stout pack mules and a fowl of their choosing.

If she fails, she'll be locked in the Tower of London, where she'll remain until a knight of virtue true slays the two-headed hydra.

We haven't looked any of this stuff up, but we feel perfectly comfortable putting it out on the internet because we never learned how to be responsible. 

In all seriousness, the insider adds that while there's "no chance" that Harry would have held off on marrying Meghan if she couldn't bear children, the couple has already consulted with a fertility expert who has assured them that all systems are go.

“Meghan has always looked after herself by eating healthily, and doing a lot of exercise including yoga,” says the source.

“Being in optimum health increases any woman’s chances of conceiving, and someone in Meghan’s shape should especially have no problem in that area," the insider adds.

“The only issue is that she knows she is heading for the big 4-0, so knows the sooner she gets pregnant the better.”

As you've probably heard by now, Meghan's siblings and father are all terrible, so it's comforting to know she'll soon have a family of her own.

They say the best revenge is living well.

And the second best revenge is having ridiculously photogenic children.

Meghan Markle Issues Statement on Father: Sadly, He’s a Jerk!

In just two days, Meghan Markle will marry Prince Harry in the kind of lavish ceremony that most folks can only dream about.

Unfortunately, in the meantime, she's being made to tolerate a metric ton of bullsh-t from her wildly trashy family.

The Markle

For months now, Meghan's shady half-siblings have been talking smack to anyone who will listen, clearly hoping that her fairytale romance will somehow equate to them never having to work again.

Now, her father is doing his best to one-up his own children in order to retain the title of Worst Markle of Them All.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Thomas Markle had suffered a heart attack and would not be attending the royal wedding on Saturday.

Now, we know that Thomas is not in poor health, but still will not be making the trip to London for his daughter's big day.

The reason?

Meghan Markle with a Big Hat

Well, as far as anyone can tell, Thomas is embarrassed by a bizarre scandal involving paparazzi photos that he sold to a media outlet.

It's really not that big a deal on its own, but Thomas seems hell-bent on making it a big deal.

Rather than face the possibility that someone might make fun of him for cashing in on his daughter's fame, Thomas has decided to piss off one of the world's most powerful families by casting a dark cloud over a very important day.

The situation is so bad that Meghan has been forced to issue an official statement - her first as a member of the royal family - regarding her father's absence.

“Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health,” reads the statement.

Megs and Harry

“I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday.”

Officially, Thomas is sticking to the excuse that he's too sick to travel. 

“He has told Meghan he cannot attend due to medical reasons," a source tells People magazine.

“She is ultimately concerned, as Prince Harry is, for her father,” the insider adds.

“They have both been in touch with Thomas Markle in recent days, as they have for some time. They have been in regular contact.”

Does this jerk know his daughter will have the power to behead people as of Saturday morning?!

We haven't done much research, but we're pretty sure that's how it works.
