哈里王子竟然不邀请他们!

2018-04-26 来源:国外网站推荐 - 由[国外网站大全]整理 60

There is a high possibility that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision not to invite either UK or international leaders to their wedding is to avoid the presence of US President Donald Trump, a British royal etiquette expert said at a news conference to foreign press in London on Tuesday.

本周二,英国一位王室礼仪专家在伦敦召开的记者招待会上对外国媒体表示,哈里王子和梅根.马克尔决定不邀请本国和他国领导人参加婚礼,很有可能是为了避开美国总统唐纳德.特朗普。

哈里王子竟然不邀请他们!

William Hanson, who is widely regarded as the United Kingdom’s freshest and most trusted authority on etiquette and protocol, said Markle had previously voiced her unfavorable opinion of Trump before her engagement, so with the wedding invitations excluding politicians is a diplomatic way to avoid having to invite him.

威廉.汉森被誉为英国礼仪规范最新派也最值得信任的权威。他说,梅根.马克尔在订婚前就对特朗普颇有微词,所以婚礼不邀请政界人士是避免邀请特朗普的外交方式。

Instead, the couple have chosen 600 guests with whom they have a direct connection to witness their marriage on May 19 at Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel.

哈里和梅根已选择邀请和他们有直接关系的600位宾客参加5月19日在温莎城堡的圣乔治大教堂举行的婚礼。

Despite Harry and Meghan’s wedding being an important national occasion, the prince is not in the immediate line of succession. As it stands, Harry is fifth in the line to the British throne behind his father Prince Charles, his brother Prince William the Duke of Cambridge, and William’s two children, and Harry will become sixth in line when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third baby - due very soon - is born.

尽管哈里和梅根的婚礼是英国的大事,但哈里并非英国王室的第一顺位继承人。实际上他只是英国王室的第五顺位继承人,排在他之前的有父亲查尔斯王子、哥哥剑桥公爵威廉王子和威廉的两名子女。威廉王子和凯特王妃的第三名子女很快就要出生,之后哈里将排到第六位。

Hanson said the wedding planning had clearly taken into consideration the arrival of the new baby, which could happen any time.

汉森说,很明显婚礼计划已经考虑到了随时可能出生的王室宝宝。

"Harry is very close to his brother and his sister-in-law, and presumably by extension, Meghan is also part of that circle," Hanson said.

汉森说:“哈里和哥嫂关系很好,所以显然梅根也是这个家庭小团体的一员。”

As far as the wedding is concerned, Harry "would not want something to upstage, nor to prohibit, such a major guest from coming", he added.

他补充说,就婚礼而言,哈里“不想被王室新宝宝抢风头,也不想让这位重要的宾客缺席。”

Hanson, who has been teaching royal etiquette for the last 12 years, half-jokingly said: "This wedding is probably going to be the one wedding that irritates everybody like me, because actually it will break the protocol as Meghan seems to have her own take on what she wants to do."

汉森教授王室礼仪已有12年,他半开玩笑地说道:“这场婚礼可能会惹恼像我这样的人,因为它其实将会打破礼仪常规,梅根似乎想做些她自己想做的事。”

The wedding cake has been announced well in advance, and the photographer as well as the florist are usually not revealed until much closer to the event, if not on the day or after the day, he added, "so already we are beginning to see, on smaller levels, a different sort of thing".

婚礼蛋糕的款式已经提前宣布,通常来说,摄影师和花商会在婚礼临近时才宣布,也可能是婚礼当天或者之后一天。汉森补充说:“所以,我们已经在小范围内看到一些不合常规的做法。”

Hanson said Harry, who achieved the rank of captain in his 10 years of army service, is likely to wear morning dress at the wedding, instead of the military uniform the Duke of Cambridge wore at his big day, because the upcoming wedding is less formal.

汉森说,哈里已经在10年的服役期间获得上尉军衔。他在婚礼上可能会穿晨礼服,而不是像威廉王子那样在大婚之日穿军装,因为哈里王子的婚礼没有那么正式。

According to Hanson, for men, key morning dress rules include a black or dark gray tailcoat with neck tie, and the waistcoat is usually double-breasted. For women, it will be a formal dress with jacket over the top, hats instead of headpieces, plus gloves to be super-correct.

汉森表示,对男性来说,晨礼服穿戴的主要规则包括:一件黑色或深灰色燕尾服搭配领带,马甲通常是双排扣的。对女性来说,穿一件正式的裙装,套一件短上衣,戴上帽子和手套,不要戴头饰,这样最合适不过了。

When asked how much Markle’s previous marriage and divorce matter to the royal court, Hanson said it would have been more of an issue if Harry were directly in line to the throne, although the royal family has relaxed their attitude to divorce during the Queen’s reign.

当被问及王室是否在意马克尔之前的离异经历时,汉森表示,如果哈里是王室第一顺位继承人的话,会有一定的影响,尽管在英国女王在位期间,王室对离异的态度已有所放松。

The couple have announced that they will be inviting more than 2,000 members of the public into the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch part of the wedding.

哈里和梅根已经宣布,他们将邀请超过两千名公众前来温莎城堡前的婚礼现场见证这场王室婚礼。
