Meghan Markle doesn’t know about her bachelorette party, but it has been ‘sorted’

Harry Meghan Edinburgh

I wasn’t really thinking about Meghan Markle’s bachelorette party, to be honest. I guess I just thought she wouldn’t have one, considering that most of her friends are probably in LA and Toronto rather than London. In Britain, the “hen party” tradition is somewhat different than the American “bachelorette party.” Or maybe not, I don’t know – both versions probably involve a lot of alcohol and a raucous girls’ night out. In America, there might be a male stripper dressed as a Hot Cop. But modern hen parties/bachelorette parties could be anything – a nice dinner, a weekend getaway, a spa trip, whatever. When someone asked Meghan about her hen party while she was in Edinburgh this week, she said that it’s been “sorted.”

With just three months to go before the big day, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding planning is in full swing. Up next? The royal bachelor and bachelorette parties! During the couple’s first joint visit to Scotland on Tuesday, Meghan was asked about her upcoming bachelorette bash. And while she doesn’t know all the details her friends have planned for her, it “is sorted,” she told a crowd of eager well-wishers in Edinburgh.

“We asked them what they were doing for their stag and hen dos,” Tom Martin, 30, who is visiting the Scottish city from London, tells PEOPLE. “Meghan said, ‘I’m not sure — it’s sorted but it will be fun.’”

As for Harry, he said he’s also being kept in the dark on specific plans.

“I’m sure William’s got something up his sleeve,” he said.

I hope this means that her closest girlfriends are planning to fly into London and really do everything for her. I’m imaging Priyanka Chopra and Serena Williams jetting in for a day trip that involves mani/pedis and champagne, followed by a tasteful Hot Bobby stripper. Probably not! While the rules are being relaxed for Meghan, I get the feeling that she’s still being watched pretty closely and she’s aware that she won’t be allowed to really let it all hang out.

    She really is channeling Victoria Beckham, isn’t she? I love the buttons on her trousers.

    • Adele Dazeem says:

      I just came here to say that!! I love the pants, they really give her a curvy shape at the bottom in a very good way. Buttons for ever!

    • Imqrious2 says:

      Those pants would be perfection 3/4” shorter. LOVE the pearl buttons.

      Also love that it’s “sorted” lol. Guess those Brit lessons are taking hold 😊. Wasn’t it published that she and Harry’s parties will be combined into one hen/stag party? Could swear I read that somewhere….?

      • Olive says:

        she reportedly used the British pronunciation of “scone” the other day too

      • Veronica says:

        I laughed at that, too!! She really is quite the actress, isn’t she? She already has a British accent and now she is using British expression. We never use “sorted” in America in that way. Maybe Canada?? She is a chameleon and will transform herself into the perfect British princess!!

    I’ve met couples who do they bachelorette and bachelor parties 3-6 months in advanced.

    How is that fun?

  3. chlo says:

    I really love her entire outfit.

    • RoyalSparkle says:

      Lets hope Princess Henry I/w is not following vb.

      Regal and powerful looking HRH The Henry/s’.

      What is interesting and what CB posters have debated in past Post and now in print is: CW countries are speaking of the need of a leader in potential King Henry.

      We also though he built quite a bond and Tours with those countries – and is held in high esteem…. well now the ‘debate (?) of King Charles sharing his realm with his spare. They both seem good together so lets hope this would be good for King Charles – if true.

    I’m envisioning an over the top spa weekend in a castle somewhere – maybe France or Switzerland – with a group of amazing powerful fun women who can celebrate her.

  5. Snap Happy says:

    Seeing her in pants makes me wonder why Kate is always in a dress? Is she dressing like the queen?

    • princessk says:

      Well, I think Kate was channelling Barbara Cartland when she wore that pink flowing outfit at the Norway banquet.

    • Olive says:

      Kate is always in a dress presumably because she likes to wear dresses. Seems like she doesn’t like pants.

    • notasugarhere says:

      HM, Princess Anne, Sophie Wessex have all worn trousers on duty. Kate Middleton has worn jeggins and skinny jeans, but hasn’t worn proper trousers.

      • RoyalSparkle says:


        Waitie middleton wear dresses, as it is quicker -easier. This wont require much preparation – like most meet greet events she is ordered to do – less of her involvement/to work at – the better.

  6. Rhys says:

    I’m already exhausted by all the attention and events planned and I’m not even marrying the Prince! Gosh, her future life sounds like a nightmare.

    • princessk says:

      Yes, and would you believe people, especially on DM are so green with jealously. Meghan is making a big sacrifice no amount of money or jewels can compensate for what she is going to endure for years to come.

  7. Millenial says:

    For some reason I thought she’d cut her hair. Did she get extensions? Or is my brain broken?

  8. Laura Dawe says:

    I really love the cute purse she wore with the nice Burberry coat. Meghan is a really lovely lady and I can’t wait to see what she does in her role as a member of the British royal family.

    I am also a fan of Catherine, Diana, and of course, the Queen 💕

  9. Keepitreal says:

    Ms. Markle is really quite photogenic.

  10. Pandy says:

    No Canadians don’t say “sorted” either

  11. Nikki says:

    Someone read me the headline, and I thought it meant “SORDID” ! Sure got my attention fast!!

  12. graymatters says:

    I watch a lot of British TV. Sometimes words like “sorted” slip into my speech. I’ve also started emphasizing the second syllable in words like “research” and referring to pants as trousers. I imagine living in the UK would only intensify that. Otherwise, I speak in the Texan drawl I’ve carted around for the past 30 years. I imagine an actor would naturally pick up the lingo quickly.

    I stunned my 16-year-old with “fuckity bye” the other day, thanks to Peter Capaldi. It was not a good Mom moment.

    I’ve been very impressed by how Meghan has taken to royal life after so little time….she seems very engaging and the way she and harry are together is very endearing – she is looking stunning too. I’m getting mega excited about th wedding now…cant wait to see her dress …
