Royal Wedding: Meghan's parents to play 'important roles'

The couple have invited 2,640 members of the public to the 19 May wedding at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Thomas Markle Senior will walk her down the aisle a few after meeting Prince Harry. At the wedding, the royal couple also plan to honor the memory of the late Princess Diana, Harry's mother, who died in a Paris vehicle crash in 1997.

According to The Telegraph, Markle wanted to include both parents in her wedding day. "There will be no kiss during the wedding ceremony", Very Reverend Dr. John Hall, the Dean of Westminster, said before the royal wedding in 2011, ExtraTV reported, per Brides.

The 36-year-old former Suits actress will not have a maid of honour, with the bridesmaids and pageboys "all children", communications secretary Jason Knauf confirmed.

Prince Charles and wife Camilla are throwing the second event, a black-tie evening affair in honor of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Frogmore House in the grounds of Windsor Great Park.

"She has a very close-knit group of friends and did not want to choose between them", explained the royal spokesman.

Explaining that both of Meghan's parents would have important roles in the wedding, the palace said that on the morning of the wedding, Ms Ragland will travel with Ms Markle by vehicle to Windsor Castle.

A Kensington Palace statement confirmed both parents, who divorced in 1988, would play "important roles" in the wedding, saying Harry and Meghan's personalities will be reflected in the wedding as well as being guided by tradition.

Princess Charlotte and Prince George are expected to be part of the wedding party as a flower girl and page boy, respectively.

LONDON: Thomas Markle Junior, the half-brother of Meghan, has has urged Prince Harry to call of his wedding, claiming it will be the "biggest mistake in royal wedding history".

In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as Best Man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother's family in his wedding. All three of her siblings will attend, and Lady Jane Fellowes, Diana's sister, will give the reading.

Following the one hour service, the newlywed couple will meet representatives from more than 200 charities outside.

Meghan Markle's father will walk her down the aisle as she marries Prince Harry at Windsor Castle this month. British Designers Ralph & Russo have reportedly created a gown for Markle which will set the royal family back $135,000.
