Spice Girls Set to Attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal Wedding
“She had a fascination with Princess Diana,” royal expert Katie Nicholl says. “She had Andrew Morton’s book on her bookshelf as a child and one of her childhood friends, her mother also showed videos of Princess Diana. Meghan grew up very aware of Princess Diana and like most children of her generation, quite in awe of Diana. I certainly think that Diana has been an inspiration for Meghan.”
However, it seems the beloved princess won’t be the only parent missing from the wedding. According toTMZ, Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, will no longer be walking his daughter down the aisle. The outlet reports that Thomas suffered a heart attack six days ago and had checked himself out of the hospital to attend the wedding, but has bowed out of the event after being accused of staging paparazzi photos.
