In Good Company! Meghan Markle Isn't The First Royal Bride To Deal With Wedding Drama And Disasters

With everything going on with the wedding plans lately, one might think Meghan Markle is having the worst time as a royal bride. However, there have been a couple of brides in the royal family who dealt with their own unique wedding disaster.

Meghan Markle's family drama

The soon-to-be royal's father, Thomas Markle Sr., was scheduled to walk his daughter down the aisle. However, after some confusing back and forths, including puzzling revelations and health issues, he has now bowed out.

The bride's half-sister, Samantha Grant, is also not helping matters. Since the announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan's engagement, she had been pretty vocal with some unflattering revelations about her half-sibling's side of the family.

The royal family is no stranger to wedding drama

Sure, it may seem like it, but Meghan Markle is in good company in terms of unpleasant wedding surprises.

Princess Diana said the wrong name

Prince Harry's mother did not have a perfect wedding either. While saying her vows, a flustered Diana Spencer referred to her groom as 'Philip Charles Arthur George' rather than 'Charles Philip'.

Prince Charles was apparently a nervous groom as well. Instead of offering his lady "wordly goods" during the vows, he said "thy goods."

Princess Augusta threw up on her mother-in-law

When 17-year-old Princess Augusta of Saxe-Gotha was getting married, she got so nervous that her stomach went haywire. While walking down the aisle, she got violently sick, vomiting on the groom's mother, Caroline.

The best man at Princess Margaret's wedding was banned


Jeremy Fry was supposed to be the best man during Prinicess Margaret's wedding to Anthony Armstrong-Jones. 

However, Jeremy was booted after it was discovered that he had been arrested in 1952 for "a minor homosexual offense." This was before it was legal to be gay in the United Kingdom.

Fans rally round Meghan Markle

Following her statement that her dad will not be at the wedding come Saturday, the bride's fans have rallied round her, sending her words of support.

We imagine this is not the smoothest time for the American actress. But the royal family will surely give her the comfort and encouragement she needs to get through it all.
