Aussie Woman To Stand Outside Prince Harry's Wedding In Full Bridal Gown
| Last updated
An Australian woman who stole a kiss from Prince Harry back in 2015 has decided to travel half way around the world for last-ditch attempt to wrest him away from Meghan Markle.
Victoria McRae will make the trip to London from her home in Dee Why on Sydney's Northern Beaches so that she can sit outside the wedding venue at Windsor Castle in a bridal gown.
You know, on the off chance that the royal decides to ditch his glamorous American actress fiancée and pick up the next person he sees instead.
"I'll be wearing a wedding dress in case Prince Harry gets cold feet - I want to be ready," Victoria told Woman's Day. I suppose you've got to applaud the audacity of such a statement, really. Well, once you've got past the 'sorry, what?' stage at any rate.
"I think I'll take a big picture of us kissing just to remind everyone I had him first. Maybe he'll see it and have a chuckle!"
At some point this goes from self-obsessed fandom about our beloved monarchy/hereditary overlords/malevolent lizard people (delete according to your preference) to attempting to ruin someone's wedding day. Oh well, it's a hobby of sorts.
Victoria made the news back in 2015 when she stole a snog from the Prince while he was performing Royal duties in Australia.
But her form actually goes back even further - she once rented a kayak and paddled it out into Sydney Harbour when he was in Australia in 2013.
The nautical adventure saw her holding a sign with her mobile number on it in the hope that the Prince would see it - and presumably give her a call. Instead only the police saw it, and they arrested her. So near, and yet so far!
Undeterred, she has subsequently met the Prince on several occasions - which is either testament to her tenacity or a sign that someone might need to tighten up their security - and proposed to him no less than three times.
"I said to him, 'Prince Harry, this is the third time I've asked you! Put a girl out of her misery'," said Victoria, for whom two previous rejections are evidently no deterrent.
"Then I asked for a kiss and he turned his cheek, so I just grabbed it and turned his face to me and kissed him. I think he was as shocked as me."
