Meghan Markle's Parents Are Now Officially Invited To Their Daughter's Wedding In Windsor Castle
It is now officially confirmed: Meghan Markle’s parents will be present at the royal wedding. As reportedly stated by Prince Harry Communications Secretary, the future princess’ closest relatives will come to London on May 19 to witness the most awaited event of 2018.
Despite the amazing news, Mr. Thomas Markle was on the verge of missing his Meghan’s marriage and, most significantly, one of the oldest wedding traditions – accompanying his daughter down the aisle.
Luckily, all the rumors dispersed when it was confirmed: 73-year-old retired lightning director will fly for the ceremony to meet the future princess.
They are coming!
Of course, nothing can be agreed without an official confirmation, so finally, on May 4, the Communications Secretary to Prince Harry announced the Markle’s family arrival:
Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to welcoming Ms. Markle's parents to Windsor for the wedding. Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding.
The couple will have a chance to communicate with the prince’s family to get to know each other better.

As Mr. Markle’s role was known long before the official invitation, Ms. Ragland will also take a traditional part in the ceremony: She will travel with Meghan by car to Windsor castle. The future princess is unbelievably delighted with the possibility to stay close with her parents during such an important occasion.
We are really happy for Meghan and look forward to witnessing a family reunion that will definitely make both sides extremely contented.
