Meghan Markle's father will attend the royal wedding

Meghan Markle's father will attend the royal wedding

The three siblings of Harry's late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, who was killed in a Paris vehicle crash in 1997 when he was 12, will be at the wedding with her sister, Lady Jane Fellowes, giving the reading.

"This wedding will be guided by tradition, allowing everyone to celebrate what makes royal weddings so special, but also one which reflects the personalities of Prince Harry and Ms. Markle".

Her mother, Doria Ragland, will accompany her by auto from her overnight location to Windsor Castle on the day of the wedding, the Palace also announced.

On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by vehicle to Windsor Castle. A few days ahead of the wedding, they will fly into the United Kingdom to spend time with the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, according to Jason Knauf, communications secretary to Prince Harry [via CNN]. But Ms. Markle has been estranged from her father, an Emmy-award winning lighting director who moved to Mexico from the United States after declaring bankruptcy.

Markle Jr., who himself hasn't seen Meghan since 2011, has previously accused her of wanting to be the next Princess Diana.

Kensington Palace said the bride-to-be had such strong bonds with her friends, who have all been invited to the wedding, that she was unable to select just one to be her maid of honour.

The letter thrust the eccentric Bornstein, with his shoulder-length hair and round eyeglasses, into public view. He later said he wrote the note in five minutes while a limo sent by the candidate waited outside his office.

Markle Jr. also cast doubt on whether their father would be attending the wedding at Windsor Castle.

He added: "Ms Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion". Mr. Markle and Ms. Ragland are also expected to meet the Queen and members of the Royal Family, officials said.

But guests set to descend on the grounds of Windsor Castle for the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been warned to expect no such thing.

Chertoff agrees, citing the grand and extravagant nature of the Spencer Tiara as potentially in conflict with Markle's own personal style, and the more intimate nature of the ceremony. Chopra said she's never met Prince Harry, hasn't gotten the couple a wedding gift yet and is attracted to redheads.

The 36-year-old's father, Thomas Markle, will jet into the United Kingdom on the week of the wedding, just in time to see his daughter say "I do" - and meet his future son-in-law for the first time.

But the Kensington Palace has confirmed that they both will be an important part of the wedding party.

The Queen's press secretary, Edward Young, shared the news Friday in a statement announcing how members of the public can revel in the opportunity to watch the nuptials at Windsor Castle. While there has been some speculation that Markle could wear that tiara as an homage to her late mother-in-law, royal commentator Christopher Warwick says it's "highly unlikely". The couple now live together in Nottingham Cottage, on the grounds of Kensington Palace.
