As we get deeper into Spring, the closer we get to the highly anticipated event of the year we’ve all been waiting for: the royal wedding. On May 19, Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle will finally tie the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England. Not only is it expected to bring hordes of people like the last royal wedding (you know, when William and Kate Middleton got hitched and the entirety of England showed up), it’s also going to feature a lot of Americans.
In case you forgot, Markle is the first American to marry into the British royal family since 1937. That means that even though the wedding is being held in the UK, and even though you can expect a lot of British royalty to be there, Markle’s own American friends and family will probably get an invitation, too.
So, how is Markle’s relatives getting ready for their big trip to England? I’m sure most are already planning out their visit, like Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, who was caught reading up on the country in his free time.
Seriously, this is so pure it hurts. I can’t look at it for too long. I must. Look. Away.
I guess we can expect Mr. Markle to walk his daughter down the aisle when the time comes, just like he always hoped to. Of course, I bet in the past he never dreamed that it would be a televised event that thousands upon thousands of people would tune in to watch, but hey, life is a crazy thing.
Now if you need me, I’m going to be looking through more pictures of Meghan Markle’s dad being an absolute delight of a person.
