It’s safe to say that ever since November 27, 2017, the world has gone a little… royal crazy.
Yes, ever since the fateful day when Prince Harry revealed he was set to marry American actress Meghan Markle, we’ve dissected and uncovered almost every single detail of their upcoming nuptials: from the secret meaning behind their wedding cake of choice to the clues about what designer the 36-year-old will wear down the aisle.
But the five weeks and three days since the announcement haven’t been without their controversy. Almost every aspect of Meghan’s life, from her divorce to her relationship with family, has been put under the spotlight.
It's safe to say that Meghan Markle is not your average princess-to-be. And the latest rumours surrounding her wedding day are no different.
According to E! News, Meghan wants her mother - yoga teacher Doria Ragland - to take her by the arm and walk her down the aisle instead of her father, Thomas Markle, come May 18.

An 'insider' (whose insights, might we add, should be taken with a huge grain of salt) told the entertainment website that the former Suits actress was keen to "break a tradition or two" when she marries Harry.
It's no secret that Meghan and her mother are close - her parents were divorced when she was just six years old, and she continued to live with her mum. Even while announcing her engagement to Harry, Meghan admitted that the Prince was yet to meet her father face-to-face.
Despite their split, Meghan's parents issued a joint statement at the time of her engagement announcement, confirming they were "incredibly happy" for their daughter and her fiancé.
"Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents," the statement from Thomas and Doria read.
