Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding is right upon us and all the people closest to the couple will be there to celebrate their love and commitment. While we obviously know a lot about Harry’s parents, we can’t say the same when it comes to Meghan’s.
Just recently Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle Sr., was photographed at Starbucks with a book entitled ‘Images of Britain: A Pictorial Journey Through History,’ which is just too adorable. Markle seems to live a normal life in Mexico.

When it comes to Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, she was seen attending the Invictus Games with Meghan and Harry back in September. Other than that, we haven’t seen much of Meghan’s mother.
According to Kensington Palace, both Meghan’s parents will play an important role in the wedding that will take place on May 19. Meghan’s father will walk her down the aisle while her mother will be there to support her in a car ride to the chapel.
What information is available about the Markles? Meghan previously shared that her parents met in the late ‘70s while her father was working as a lighting director and her mother temporarily worked in a studio. They fell in love, got married, but divorced when Meghan was 6.
Markle also said that her dad was a director of photography on ‘Married With Children,’ which is why she used to hang out on the set a lot when she was a child. After her father retired, he moved to live in a small town in Baja California.
There was a lot of speculation in the media regarding Meghan’s relationship with her father. Some sources, including Meghan’s half-brother, claimed that they are not on speaking terms and he wasn’t invited to the wedding. But it wasn’t actually the case. An anonymous People source states that they are ‘in a good place now’ despite any previous ups and down.
Meghan has a close relationship with her mom, who is a social worker and also a yoga instructor. The actress opened up about her mother to Glamour, saying that her mom has always been ‘a free spirit.’ Meghan shared that they have a lot of fun together and that she finds ‘so much solace in her support.’
The parents will arrive to the UK earlier to meet the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth. They will also be indoctrinated as members of the royal world, just like the Middleton family before them.
