JOY AND CONTROVERSY COEXIST AROUND ROYAL WEDDING DAYS BEFORE OF THE CEREMONY

London / The joy that prevails in UK for the imminent wedding of Prince Henry and the American Meghan Markle, which has joined the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, coexists with the controversy raised by the possible absence of the bride’s father.

May congratulated Prince Henry and his fiancée for their wedding on behalf of the House of Commons and wished them “the best for the future”.

The leader of the opposition, Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn, joined the congratulations of the conservative Prime Minister and expressed his “good wishes” to the couple, who will marry this Saturday, May 19, at the chapel of St. George, in Windsor Castle (just outside London).

On the other hand, the palace of Kensington, official residence of Prince Charles’ sons, announced that the two eldest children of the Dukes of Cambridge, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3, will act as a page and maid of honor at their uncle’s wedding.

It will not be the first time that the two offspring of William and Catherine face this task. Well, they did the same thing at the wedding of their aunt Pippa Middleton with James Matthews, on May 20, 2017.

George and Charlotte – whose brother Prince Louis, who was born on April 23, will stay at home on the day of the wedding – will be accompanied by eight other boys and girls.

While Kensington Palace confirmed the members of this entourage, it remained unclear whether the bride’s father, Thomas Markle, 73, will finally accompany his daughter to the altar, as he confirmed days ago.

The doubts about his attendance began when the US portal TMZ, specializing in celebrity news, claimed that Thomas Markle had decided not to go because of controversy arising from some photographs he would have agreed with a paparazzi in exchange for money.

Shortly after the portal said Markle would have reconsidered his decision at the insistence of his daughter, to immediately return to say that he would not go because he must undergo an operation after having suffered a heart attack for days.
