Prince Louis will not attend the Royal wedding, Kensington Palace confirms

Prince Louis will not attend the Royal wedding, Kensington Palace confirms

This will mark the first time that The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will meet Meghan Markle's father.

The Palace also noted that both Meghan's mother and father will play a part in her big day. Thomas Markle will be attending the Royal Wedding with his ex-wife, and Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, and they will be arriving in the United Kingdom on the week of the wedding.

The palace said the royal family will begin arriving at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle from 11:20am.

"Not being able to meet his mother, it's so important to me to know that she's a part of this with us", Markle said during her and Harry's interview with the BBC. Her older sister, Lady Jane Fellowes, will give a reading.

It's been revealed that Meghan Markle will not have a maid of honour on her wedding day.

Mr Knauf added: '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'. The engagement ring he designed for his bride featured diamonds from Diana's private collection.

Meghan has opted not to have a maid of honor, Knauf said. She's that girl who thinks out of the box.

"She has a very close-knit circle of friends, and she didn't want to choose one over another", the spokesperson said.


Other members of the Markle family have been far less enthusiastic about the wedding.

Charlotte has already proven her worth as a bridesmaid, stepping into the role for Pippa's wedding last spring.

"...a pooled media facility will cover Ms. Markle and Ms. Ragland's departure from the bride's overnight location".

But the first royal engagement of Ms Markle, 36, and Harry, 33, will be the week after the wedding.

A friend of the future royal for three years, Quantico star Priyanka Chopra told Us that she'll be there, explaining, "I'm so happy the way the world has responded to her because as long as I've known her ... she is a relatable young woman of the world today".

Rafferty, who plays Donna Paulsen in the hit USA legal drama, has been described by Ms Markle as "not just my Suits sister wife, but my sister".

Last week, Kensington Palace announced that Prince William would be Prince Harry's best man at the wedding on May 19. The city is also setting up large television screens near Windsor Castle showing live footage of the ceremony, and it has commissioned 140 volunteers to help move people around. When it ends, the newly-married couple will greet the 200 representatives of Prince Harry's charities.
