Her mother Doria Ragland will ride with her daughter in the auto on the way to the chapel, and her father Thomas Markle will walk her down the aisle.

In tying the knot with Queen Elizabeth II's grandson, she is also marrying into an institution where age-old traditions govern virtually all aspects of the royals' lives - including the clothes they wear. At the wedding, the royal couple also plan to honor the memory of the late Princess Diana, Harry's mother, who died in a Paris vehicle crash in 1997.

Prince Harry has also kept Princess Diana's memory alive with Markle's engagement ring, in which two side stones are from her personal collection.

Mr Markle, who has not spoken to Ms Markle for seven years, but asserted that "family comes first", added that he was "confused why you don't see the real Meghan".

The palace explained: "She has a very close-knit group of friends and she did not want to choose one over the other".

After months of speculation over who will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle of St. George's Chapel during her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry, Kensington Palace has now confirmed that Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, will have the honour.

Glamorous and elegant, Meghan Markle is set to freshen up the British royal family dress code, while tailoring her outfits to suit her new role. Meghan will not have a made of honor, but soon to be niece and nephew Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince George, 4, will be her flower girl and pageboy.
