In this regard, only a lazy one did not remember lines from a song by Verka Serduchka “Even if you are a little over 30, there is a hope to marry the Prince.” And example Megan shows that hope is still there, only unmarried princes are not many left.
The wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle will be less lush than William and Kate Middleton. This is due to the line of succession in which William takes the second place, and Harry sixth. But the celebration will take place anyway in the best British tradition, which is a lot. However, some of them Megan dared to violate.

With regard to the family Meghan Markle, with relatives she has a rather strained relationship. That only is the open letter’s brother-Megan Thomas, in which he asked Harry to undo an upcoming wedding. “She’s shallow, conceited and jaded. Megan tries to play the role of Princess as an aging Hollywood actress below average,” said Thomas about the sister.
Kensington Palace a week ago confirmed that the wedding will arrive parents of Megan – Thomas Markle and Doria Raglan. Father had lead my daughter to the altar, but at the last moment changed his mind, citing a prior heart attack and heart surgery. Besides Thomas Markle admitted that he was ashamed of staged shots, which he’s measuring for sewing costume and examines a photo album of the sights of the UK. However, maybe Megan is still trying to persuade the father to attend the ceremony in such an important day for her.
