Rumour has it Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want to put a new twist on their royal wedding.
An alleged source told US Magazine Markle wants her mother, Doria Ragland, to walk her down the aisle. Traditionally, the bride’s father — in this case Thomas Markle — would have the honour of giving away their daughter. “I’ve heard that Meghan wants her mother to walk her down the aisle, which would be a sweet moment,” the source reportedly said.
“With the wedding, they both want to do things their way. While they will always be mindful of traditions and the views of their elders, the day is ultimately about them and what they want to do,” the insider explained. “The day of the wedding itself will certainly hold a few unconventional surprises.”
Adding, “Don’t expect a royal wedding by numbers. They want to involve their friends and family as much in as much as possible throughout the day.”
A source at Kensington Palace reportedly told the publication that Harry has his own plans for the highly-anticipated wedding: “Harry has never been one to follow instructions and both he and Meghan are extremely independent individuals. I wouldn’t imagine for one second that they plan to sit back and be told what to do — and they won’t.”
But that, “Their romance feels refreshingly modern and I think that’s something that everyone at Kensington Palace has felt incredibly excited by.”
Harry and Markle’s wedding is scheduled for May 19.
