Here comes Bridezilla! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding — which is set for May 19 — is just around the corner, and the bride-to-be is apparently feeling the stress. “Meghan’s driving everyone crazy with her diva demands,” an insider tells Life & Style. “She’s a perfectionist, and she’s trying to control everything going on around her.”
According to the source, the Suits star feels a lot of pressure to follow “the rules of royal etiquette” on her big day, but she’s also “worried about her family being on their best behavior.” At this point, it’s unclear who from Meghan’s family will even be attending the wedding, considering her half-sister, Samantha Grant, recently implied she wouldn’t be invited.
“I can’t imagine how anyone would anticipate a normal, traditional, royal wedding,” she explained in the TLC documentary When Harry Met Meghan: A Royal Engagement. “I mean, they’d probably be watching across the lawn for the Markles to approach — ‘Oh, good God, they’re coming! Close the curtains! Hide!'” She continued to joke about what would happen if her family did attend the upcoming nuptials. “It’s just so silly. We’re so normal. And yes, I would love to go, but we have no idea what’s going to happen.”
However, Meghan's mother, Doria Radlan, will be in attendance and is reportedly walking her daughter down the aisle — instead of her father, Thomas Markle. But Thomas — who lives a private life in Mexico —will reportedly be there too, and is "overjoyed" just to be invited. The 72-year-old has never been to England, and reportedly still hasn't met Prince Harry. He’s also “not exactly thrilled at facing the world’s glare,” according to The Sun, but “nothing will stop him from having Meghan on his arm for the big day.” Fans will have to wait and see if the rest of Meghan's family will be at Kensington Palace on her wedding day, or if they'll be stuck watching the TV special at home — like the rest of us.
