Meghan Markle Shakes Up Her Royal Wedding Plans By Breaking Palace Tradition

Out with the old!

The Royal Wedding Planing continues! As we approach the Royal Wedding on May 19th  (a mere 5 months away!) we're receiving more and more details as to what we can expect! Her soon-to-be Royal Highness Meghan Markle has been stirring up the tabloids with her non-traditional choices for the big day!

First of all, Meghan has decided to have a maid of honour instead of the traditional chief-bridesmaid. For those of you wondering what the difference is, a chief-bridesmaid is typically a woman who is unmarried to serve as the bride's right-hand on her wedding day. A married woman cannot be a chief bridesmaid. For this reason, we believe Meghan's best friend Jessica Mulroney will be her maid of honour!

Meghan and Harry are also trying to, "involve their friends and family as much in as much as possible throughout the day," claims a source. Their wedding will most likely be untraditional in many ways as, “Harry has never been one to follow instructions and both he and Meghan are extremely independent individuals. I wouldn’t imagine for one second that they plan to sit back and be told what to do — and they won’t … Their romance feels refreshingly modern and I think that’s something that everyone at Kensington Palace has felt incredibly excited by.”

Meghan has also expressed interest in her mother walking her down the isle in lieu of her father, to whom she doesn't have a strong relationship. Meghan is sure to shake the dust off Palace traditions with her updated changes and we for one can't wait to see the results!
