People wondered why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle [VIDEO] did not attend Easter services with the royal family. Queen Elizabeth was there, but Prince Philip was home following a hip injury. Prince William and a pregnant Kate Middleton were there but not their children. That was probably Duchess Kate's last public appearance before she gives birth to the couple's third child later this month.

Trip to the United States

According to ABC News royal contributor Omid Scobie, Meghan flew back to the United States to give her mother an update on her wedding plans [VIDEO] to Prince Harry on Saturday, May 19. The bride to be left London last Thursday and went back to her native Los Angeles.

It was her first time in America since she moved away last November following the announcement of her engagement to Prince Harry. It was a surprise that she was able to get away without any reports of it until she returned.

Meghan shared as much as she could with her mother, but she and Harry are planning to fly Doria Ragland to London ahead of the wedding so she can help make the final preparations and meet the royal family. The social worker and yoga instructor will meet her daughter's future in-laws for the first time and see the wedding dress before Meghan walks down the aisle on May 19.

Meghan's supporters

Details of Meghan's wedding dress have been kept a top secret -- and for very good reason. The dress designer has not been revealed, but that person has been making periodical trips to Kensington Palace for Meghan's fittings.

Besides her mother, Meghan will have her best friend Jessica Mulroney close by her side to support her in the final days before the wedding. It has not been determined if she will be a bridesmaid or a maid of honor. After all, Jessica is a bridal consultant and reports say she is helping Meghan make major decisions pertaining to the wedding.

While the dress is kept under wraps, Harry and Markle did announce that Philippa Craddock, London's popular florist, is taking care of all the flowers for the church and the two receptions. One reception will be given by Queen Elizabeth after the wedding at St. George's Hall at Windsor Castle with about 600 guests.

Prince Charles will host another reception later in the evening at Frogmore House on the grounds of Windsor Castle with about 200 family members and close friends.

It looks like plans are coming together for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding next month.
