Jane's Royal Watch: Canadians to take part in royal wedding

Jane's Royal Watch: Canadians to take part in royal wedding

Eric Marquez, 40, from OH, is one of several passengers on a bus tour offering a cream tea while they drive past key sights including Harry's home at Kensington Palace.

Combine that with the world's media following your every move and you can imagine that Meghan Markle might be feeling more than a little stressed.

The first confirmation of his relationship with Markle came in an angry statement he issued in November 2016 decrying "abuse and harassment" against her.

Her Maj will bestow a new title to her grandson on the morning of his big day - as she did with Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Bridal expert and Toronto stylist Mulroney has had a key role in the planning of the wedding and has been helping Markle behind the scenes.

After the hour-long ceremony, the couple will take part in a procession through the town's ancient streets on a 19th Century Ascot Landau carriage pulled by four Windsor Grey horses.

U.S. actress Markle, 36, grew up in Los Angeles and remains close with her parents, who divorced three decades ago.

Ragland, who has reportedly already arrived in Britain, is expected to spend Friday night with Meghan in a plush hotel before travelling with her by auto to Windsor Castle.

Prince William could take Thomas Markle's place and walk Meghan down the aisle instead.

Thomas Markle Sr. had a number of stents placed in his blood vessels after his heart was "severely damaged" as a result of a heart attack last week, TMZ reports.

On Wednesday, TMZ reported that a heart procedure was performed on the former lighting director.

Meghan Markle's high school will celebrate their former pupil marrying into the British royal family by drinking tea and watching a live screening of the wedding.

Later in the day, Thomas Markle told TMZ he staged the photos in an effort to rebrand his image and admits the posed pictures look "stupid and hammy".

On Tuesday, he was back in the hospital, suffering from chest pains.

Markle's father Thomas (73) was due to walk his daughter down the aisle in front of 600 guests including all the senior Britain's royals and a smattering of celebrities.

Backtracking on his statements the day before, Thomas Markle told TMZ on Tuesday that he has made a decision to go to the wedding after speaking with his daughter.

But on Monday he missed a call from his daughter and she later told him she loved him in a text message and was concerned about his health.

It is also thought George was told off by his mother outside the church.

The royal wedding is expected to provide the British economy with a $1.4 billion boost so it makes sense that brands are hungry to get a cut of the cash.
