If you’ve seen any information from a news media outlet lately, it’s certain that something pertaining to the British royal wedding has been discussed at one point or another. There is something so fantastically mesmerizing about the royal way of life. It’s vastly different than any other lifestyle with which we’re accustomed, making it all the more intriguing.
A wedding for a royal is always guaranteed to be larger than life, chocked full of elegance and rich, historic traditions. Not only will the wedding be a rather noteworthy one, but it’s also a rarity.
Prince Harry has kept many wondering if he would ever find the love of his life and settle down like his older brother, Prince William, did. Little did anyone know that just across the pond in the United States, his true love was waiting.
As the wedding of the decade is drawing ever so near, tensions are beginning to rise for those involved, causing an even greater stir in the palace. There has been an unraveling of drama in the days leading up to the wedding, and many of the royal family members have become quite upset with the situation.
Amid the drama, a shocking turn of events occurred, causing a great deal of distress for the bride-to-be. Thomas Markle Jr. was set to walk his daughter down the aisle on her wedding day. Despite the plans, his body had a mind of its own, so to speak, and he was hospitalized and needed surgery.
Without a doubt, this devastated Meghan. Every girl’s dream is to have their loving father walk by her side on her wedding day. Knowing he would no longer be able even to attend the wedding was shattering. News outlets ran wild with the turn of events, so much so that Meghan, herself, found it necessary to speak up.
She released a statement saying: “Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health. I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday.”
A palace aide also spoke out about the situation saying, “The past days have been focused on Meghan’s father’s wellbeing. You’ll note that the first word in Meghan’s statement is ‘sadly.’ She’s very concerned about her father, but she is also excited about Saturday. She has her best friends here, and her mother and she is very thankful and happy for that.”
Despite the odds stacked against her during this time, Meghan knew she had to say something to stand up for her father. This just goes to show how much she cares for those she loves. Though her father will not be present in attendance, she knows she will have his loving support for the event. We wish Mr. Markle a speedy recovery during his time of illness.
