Meghan Markle's Mum And Dad Will Play Important Role At Her Wedding + Declines Having A Maid Of Honour
Meghan Markle's Father and Mother will be present when she weds Prince Harry on May 19th.....Yaaaay!!!
In a break from tradition, Meghan Markle's mother will get a starring role on the royal wedding day.
Markle will ride with her mother, Doria Ragland, to St George’s Chapel and then her father, Thomas Markle, will walk her down the aisle.
In past royal weddings, the bride’s mother has remained in the background, ceremonially upstaged by the bride’s father, who accompanies her to the venue and then walks her down the aisle.
"Both of the bride's parents will have important roles in the wedding," a royal spokesperson said.
According to The Telegraph, Markle wanted to include both parents in her wedding day. Her father will meet her at St George’s Chapel, where he will walk her down the aisle.
"On the morning of the wedding, Ms Ragland will travel with Ms Markle by car to Windsor Castle," he added. "Mr Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle."
Markle’s parents who divorced three decades ago, will arrive in Britain in the week before the May 19 wedding to "spend time" with Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip.
They will also meet Harry's father Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, ahead of the ceremony at St George's Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
Markle will not be having a maid of honour.
"She has a very close-knit group of friends and did not want to choose between them," the royal spokesperson explained.
