Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made it very clear that they intend for their wedding to be as openly involved as possible. The public holds a very dear spot in their hearts, and they want nothing more than to share this momentous occasion with the entire world.
The exquisite invitations have been made and sent out, the cake flavor has been confirmed, and the dress has been carefully selected. One glaring detail about the big day has had everyone scratching their heads: the wedding party. For a wedding of this magnitude, things are a little different than the traditional weddings we’re accustomed to seeing.
From what we know, Meghan is only closely involved with her mother, Doria Radlan, and father, Tom Markle, Sr. She opted against inviting her extended family to the ceremony, along with other closely related family members.
While her parents are over the moon about her newfound love and happiness, her father has made it known that he’s not a fan of all the attention. He has been notorious for evading the public attention his daughter has brought to the family. After all, when your child is set to join into one of the most influential families in the world, it comes with the territory.
Because of his reclusive nature, many speculated he would fail to attend their larger-than-life ceremony. Some heavily debated that it would instead be Prince William that would walk her down the aisle. In recent news, though, this theory has been put to rest.
According to The Sun, “Thomas Sr. is overjoyed to be beside his little girl on the day she becomes a princess - even if he has to battle his demons to get there. He’s not exactly thrilled at facing the world’s glare. He lives a reclusive life in Mexico. But nothing will stop him from having Meghan on his arm for the big day.”
This goes to show just the type of dad Meghan has. No matter what the circumstance may be nor how uncomfortable he may be in his surroundings, he will go above and beyond to make her dreams come true. If this isn’t love, I don’t know what is.
We will never forget the moment that Prince Harry and his glowing bride-to-be announced their engagement. Their love for one another is undeniable, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for the happy couple. May 19th can’t get here fast enough!
