Is Meghan’s Father Doing A Research On The British Culture Before His Daughter’s Big Day?
When your daughter is about to become a British royal, it’s a good idea to learn about the country a little bit more.
And that what Thomas Markle seems to be doing as his daughter Meghan will soon marry Prince Harry. The 73-year-old retired lighting director was spotted carrying a book titled Images of Britain: A Pictorial Journey Through History, as he was walking down the streets of his hometown Rosarito, situated in Mexico, last week.
It could mean that he might walk his daughter down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel on May 19, despite feeling afraid to do so.
Mr. Markle’s choice of a guidebook features the most beautiful places of the United Kingdom. Sooner or later, he will find a picture of Windsor Castle, his daughter’s wedding venue.
Thomas Markle’s fears of walking Meghan down the aisle are hardly surprising as millions of people across the world will be watching him accompanying the beautiful bride, as she will be walking to her waiting groom.
The family members say that Mr. Markle is also feeling nervous about “representing his family and America”.

Last year, he was reportedly left “extremely” hurt after Prince Harry told the BBC his relatives were “the family” to his fiancée, which she “never had”.
But it appears that he doesn’t hold any grudges anymore, as he declared that he would “love” to walk his daughter down the aisle after the news about engagement was announced.
Meghan might be from a simple American family, but as it was discovered, she might not be a commoner after all. According to the genealogist Gary Boyd Roberts, the actress is a direct descendant of England’s King Edward III, who ruled from 1327 until 1377.
That technically means that Prince Harry is marrying his 17th cousin!
