Saturday, May 19th, 2018, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married at 12:00 PM at St. George’s Chapel. This is a big deal not only because one of the royal princes is getting married, but because the bride is the first biracial (half black and white) person and American to ever marry into the family. It is because of this that many people have become very excited such as Riley H. ‘19 who said, “Oh, yeah, I heard about that. I think that’s really cool, I’m gonna check watch at least part of the event.” Tyler Y. ‘20 added, “My mom says she always watches the weddings, but I’ll probably make sure to watch at least part of it this time since she’s American and stuff.”


Meghan Markle was born in Los Angeles, California and (fellow Chicagoans will be happy to know) attended Northwestern University for her degrees in theatre and international studies. She met Prince Harry in June 2016 on a blind date that was set up by a friend. From there their relationship seems to developed somewhat rapidly as the couple’s engagement was announced on November 27th, 2017.


Preparing for the wedding has not been the smoothest process, particularly with the drama over whether or not Markle’s father will be attending the Royal Wedding. Her father, Thomas Markle, informed TMZ that he would not be attending the event as he didn’t want to embarrass the royal family after staging a photoshoot with paparazzi of him reading a book about Great Britain, being fitted for his wedding outfit, and looking at pictures of the couple. Meghan Markle pleaded with her father to still attend as she wishes him to be there for her moment, however, it seems he is unable to go anyway due to a future surgery he needs for his heart problems. Due to this Meghan Markle has asked her future father-in-law, Prince Charles, to walk her down the aisle.


Despite what has happened, I’m sure the wedding will proceed beautifully. I myself look forward to seeing Markle’s dress and maybe catching a glimpse of the new prince and his siblings.


Congratulations to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and good luck!
