Prince William's children get starring roles at brother's wedding

Ever since Meghan and Prince Harry annouced their engagement, the bride-to-be has faced enough flak from her family, including her half sister, half brother and sister-in-law have all appeared on national television to criticise the American TV actress calling her names and claiming that she is a awful person.

Britain's Prince Harry and his US fiancee Meghan Markle have chosen George and Charlotte, the children of the royal's elder brother Prince William, to be among the bridesmaids and page boys for their wedding, his office said on Wednesday. But what, exactly, makes it special?

St George's Chapel was set up by King Edward III back in the 14 century. It also houses the bodies of royals who preceded Prince Harry. Not only are his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II's immediate family members buried there - including her grandfather George V, her father George VI, her mother Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, and her infamous sister Princess Margaret - but the royal matriarch will eventually be buried there as well.

On Tuesday, Thomas told the outlet that would not be able to attend his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry in Windsor, England, on Saturday, hours after saying that he was looking forward to walking her down the aisle.


Markle threw the wedding plans into confusion earlier this week when he said he would not attend the May 19 nuptials because he did not want to embarrass his daughter.

The royal wedding guest list includes over 600 people, and many of them will be celebrities. "And I am proud of them.They are fabulous human beings", he said. She added "Mountbatten" as a nod to her husband Prince Philip. Although, it's been widely misreported that the most recent vows exchanged there were between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005.

Despite the radio silence from Meghan, Kensington Palace responded to news of Thomas Markle's absence with a brief statement this afternoon: "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding". I would love to be at the wedding to see them because I think they are happy.
