This Military Family Org Got a Royal Wedding Invite


I think we can all agree that it's pretty disappointing that Prince Harry is still planning to marry someone who is not me. But if we can move past that (that's very much an "if") we can probably also agree that the second coolest thing to actually getting to marrying a prince would be attending at the wedding of one as a guest.

Which is why I was excited to see that one of our friends from the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) is getting to do just that.

Invited as a partner of The Diana Award, which encourages positive change through a series of programs including one focused on mentorship, TAPS will be represented at the May 19 wedding at Windsor Castle by Diana Hosford, TAPS vice president for sports and entertainment.

(No word on whether not Hosford has started the necessary hat shopping.)

Hosford will be part of a group of 200 invitees who are attending through charities that have a close connection to Prince Harry or his fiancee (for now ... I refuse to give up hope*) Meghan Markle.

"It was with great joy, excitement and humble gratitude that I accepted this invitation to attend the Royal Wedding celebrations on behalf of TAPS," Hosford said in an appropriately proper statement. "I look forward to celebrating this lovely union and working together with The Diana Award to create opportunities for bereaved young people in the United States and the United Kingdom."

Now, please excuse me while go hat shopping and pack myself in her bag.

*In case you're upset about my desire to marry Prince Harry because I'm already married, let me just point out to you the same thing I told my husband. Meghan Markle is a divorcee. I could also be a divorcee. It's not that hard.
