Monday Tidbits for September 24: Weddings Are Still in the Air

Cue up the Wedding March, again:

--New royal documentary coming: Queen of the World details Queen Elizabeth II's role as head of the Commonwealth and airs September 25th on ITV or October 1st on HBO. It includes comments from the Duchess of Sussex on her wedding gown and and wedding day. One tidbit is the reveal that her veil included "something blue": a bit of fabric from a blue dress she wore on her first date with Prince Harry. That caps a big week for Meghan, with the launch of the wonderful cookbook initiative for the families of the Grenfell fire. [ITV, Sky]

--In Japan, the official wedding date for Princess Ayako and Kei Moriya was set with another traditional ceremony. They'll marry on October 29. [Imperial Family of Japan Blog]

--Another Windsor wedding on the horizon: Lady Gabriella Windsor, daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, is engaged to Tom Kingston. [Telegraph]

--And finally, over at the Jewel Vault, the Balmoral break rolls on with church stuff and other stuff.

Coming up this week: Mary and more...
