It’s official: Meghan Markle will become a royal in just 14 days. And as we get closer to the big day on May 19, more and more wedding details are being released by Kensington Palace. So far we know the florist, the cake, the music, and, as of yesterday, that Meghan won’t have a maid of honor. Now, there’s new details about how exactly Meghan and Prince Harry will honor his late mother, Princess Diana.
According to Kensington Palace, Meghan and Harry have decided to make other living members of Diana’s family not just a part of the wedding, but active participants in the ceremony.
“All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading,” the statement read. “Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day.”
While Meghan’s 3-carat diamond engagement ring already includes some of Princess Diana’s diamonds, royal expert Katie Nicholl speculates that Meghan might wear another piece of Diana’s jewelry as her “something borrowed.”
“Harry made sure Diana wasn’t forgotten on the day of his engagement,” Nicholls told British newspaper, Express. “Two of the diamonds in Meghan’s ring are from Diana’s personal collection. So I think there’s every possibility that Meghan might wear a piece from Diana’s jewelry collection on her wedding day.”
That being said, it’s unlikely Meghan will wear the Spencer tiara because she’s marrying into the Windsor family. A few more likely options? The Qatar diamond and pearl earrings gifted to Diana by the King of Qatar or a diamond and sapphire suite from the Sultan of Oman in 1986. Honestly, with choices like these, the end result—whatever it is—is bound to be stunning.
