Talk about a busy bride. With all the commotion surrounding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s big day, sources say the now Duchess of Sussex simply didn’t have the time to communicate with her father, Thomas Markle, on the day of the royal wedding.
An insider explained to Us Weekly, that the 36-year-old “didn’t speak to her father” at all on May 19. That said, Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, was by her side every step of the way — she even stayed with Meghan at the Cliveden House Hotel the night before her nuptials. Doria looked positively elated to be there. So much so, that she couldn’t hold back happy tears.
Considering Meghan’s father was unable to attend the wedding due to last minute health complications, having her mother there as a means of support must have meant the world to her. Though, it doesn’t appear as though there’s any bad blood between the former Suits actress and her dad.
In fact, Thomas told TMZ on May 19 that he was watching the ceremony on television, noting that it was “emotional and joyful” for him. “My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy,” he continued. “I wish I was there and I wish them all my love and happiness.”
We’re happy to see that no amount of Markle family drama could overshadow the joyous occasion. The official royal wedding photos prove that it was a wonderful event celebrating two beautiful souls becoming one. OK, we’re starting to get teary-eyed again.
