With so much Bad News around, one nice heartwarming moment that 2018 promises to deliver is a Royal Wedding. The dress, the guests, the fancy hats, the deeply outdated royal traditions, the pomp, the circumstance, the bloody QUEEN… damn, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s nuptials are gonna be toit.
In lovely news today, it’s been reported that Markle is in the process of locking down some v. important deets for the May 19 affair, to be held at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Namely: who is going to be tasked with escorting her down the aisle.
E! News claims that Markle, 36, wants to break tradition and have her mother Doria Ragland by her side on the big day.
According to arguably stuffy traditions the bride’s father should walk her down the aisle but Markle, who is already shaking things up by being a TV star/American/divorcée/not-white-person about to marry British royalty, apparently doesn’t care.
A source tells E! that Markle, who is very close with her yoga teacher mum, is hoping to have Ragland give her away instead of her “reclusive” dad Thomas Markle, who split from Doria in 1987, with the insider saying she wants to “break a tradition or two” on her wedding day.
But last month UK tabloid the Daily Mirror tracked Thomas down in Mexico as he was minding his own business buying beer and ciggies, and asked if he’d like to walk her down the aisle. His response? “Yes. I’d love to.”
Uh-oh. Things just got awkward.
