Prince George, Princess Charlotte to have starring roles in royal wedding

GettyRoyal wedding Prince Charles will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are requesting "understanding and respect" for Markle's father after a celebrity news site reported he would not be coming to the royal wedding to walk his daughter down the aisle, Kensington Palace said Monday night.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose six bridesmaids and four page boys, and all of them are under 10 years old.

Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle Sr., 73, returned to the hospital on May 14, less than a week after he suffered a terrifying heart attack.

If her father can't-or won't-make the trip, according to a royal expert who spoke to VF.com, Prince Charles could ostensibly escort his future daughter-in-law down the aisle. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation", a Kensington Palace statement said.

If the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding day is anything to go by, she will wear two dresses, and low-priced versions of them will arrive on the high street within days.

Markle also said that he thought the pictures were "stupid", according to TMZ, and chose to skip the wedding as he didn't want to embarrass Meghan or the royal family any further. According to Vanity Fair, Markle is still hoping that her dad will change his mind, but her father told TMZ he hasn't heard from her. "Meghan always has her dog on a lead, and since she has started walking her dog in the park some of us regular dog walkers been asked to put dogs on leads". She said the media had "raked him over the coals" and "distorted his image".

But who is Meghan Markle's mother?

On May 19, royal wedding fans will be gathered around their televisions or amongst the crowds in Windsor to catch a glimpse of the bride and groom. Both were expected to meet Queen Elizabeth II and other senior royals in the days before the wedding.

'My mom's a yoga instructor, but she does social work, as well, and she works specifically with the geriatric community, ' Meghan wrote in an essay about the 10 women who changed her life for Glamour previous year.
