Pippa Middleton is getting married to fiancé James Matthews soon. And apparently, the ceremony has been made open to the public, so the locals might gatecrash the event.

According to the legal advisory commission of the Church of England Synod, the members of the public are entitled to attend the wedding ceremony as long as there is available seating and unless there’s a genuine threat to safety and security, The Telegraph reported. “It’s a rather nice thought that they might be able to attend. I’m sure there will be interest,” said Andrew House, chairman of the parish council for the neighboring village of Bradfield. “A marriage is a public ceremony which at the least all parishioners are entitled to attend.”

The church ruling could present a dilemma to the wedding organizers. Kate Middleton’s sister imposed the “no ring, no bring” policy to allegedly control the number of people attending the event as they want it to be an intimate affair. Unfortunately, with the church being open to the public, anyone would be able to gatecrash the ceremony.

Stephen Borton, an ecclesiastical law expert and chief clerk of the faculty office of the Archbishop of Canterbury, has the same thing in mind. Marriages are not private events, and any parishioner who wishes to attend should not be refused. A number of people are expected to attend Pippa’s wedding, especially those who know the Middletons.

In other news, Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has not been officially invited to the wedding ceremony. But the “Suits” star is reportedly welcome to the evening after-party following the nuptials as a source told People that Markle has already received an invite.

Markle is reportedly already getting ready to attend the reception as she has filed a leave from filming “Suits” between May 15 and 22. This will give her plenty of time to travel to U.K. and attend Pippa’s wedding, Hello! reported.
