Meghan Markle Has Been Banned From Attending Pippa Middleton's Wedding

It's being claimed that the 31-year-old reality TV star and model - now in a relationship with the groom's brother Spencer Matthews - has agreed not to attend the nuptials between Pippa and hedge fund manager James Matthews next month, The Sun reports. It wouldn't be appropriate for her to be there after just a few months of dating.

'It's clear Pippa doesn't want to be outshone by any TV babes on her big day, ' the source adds.

Meghan Markle - known for her role in hit United States series "Suits" - is now linked to Prince Harry.

Her big sister may have walked down the aisle of Westminster Abbey in front of some 2,000 guests but Pippa Middleton has plumped for a much more intimate wedding venue.

But apparently the bride to be has a strict "no ring, no bring" guest-list policy that will be quite the blow for her future brother-in-law.

MADE In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews recently confirmed his relationship with model Vogue Williams.

According to biographer, Sally Beddell-Smith, who wrote the book "Prince Charles: The passions and paradoxes of an improbable life", the relationships of Prince William and brother Prince Harry will be "inconceivable" if not for the past of their father.

The report quoted a source as saying that Pippa Middleton and her mother, Carole, felt that there might be "unnecessary chaos" if Meghan Markle attended the wedding.

It's believed that Pippa wants to distance Vogue from William and Kate. She is confirmed to star in the new season of the long-running legal drama series that airs on USA Network.

But royal author Judy Wade previously told People magazine that she's doesn't think Kate will stand as her sister's Matron of Honour as Pippa did at her royal wedding in 2011.

Pippa and James will tie the knot on 20 May at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire.

Prince George, three, Pippa's nephew, is tipped to be a page boy and her niece Princess Charlotte, who will have just turned two, a flower girl.
