Prince Harry and Meghan Markle choose flowers for their wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle choose flowers for their wedding

Meghan Markle departs from Catalyst Inc, Northern Ireland's next generation science park, March 23, 2018, in Belfast, Nothern Ireland.

A new biography about Meghan Markle has made shocking claims about the former actress and her life before meeting Prince Harry.

Morton interviewed Markle's teenage friends who claim Markle was crying as they watched the funeral for Diana in 1997. Meghan Markle is a big fan of the 2002 romantic drama Center Stage - so, naturally, she fangirled when Amanda Schull joined Suits in 2013. For the most part. She was so inspired by Diana's world-famous humanitarian work she turned to similar charity work herself.

With Engelson based in Los Angeles, the couple thought "the sacrifice was going to be worth it", Morton writes. In the couple's first joint interview in November, Harry noted that he used two diamonds from Diana's jewelry collection for Markle's engagement ring to "make sure that she's with us on this - on this insane journey together".

Meghan moved to Toronto from LA for the role in the hit TV series and she and Engelson split two years later, with Meghan allegedly returning her engagement ring and wedding ring by post. The couple married in Jamaica.

Morton writes that her ex "can barely contain his anger" toward the royal-to-be, in spite of the fact that they split almost five years ago now.

The couple are also thinking of the environment and will feature pollinator-friendly plants from the Royal Parks wildflower meadows. Neither the president nor his wife, first lady Melania Trump (who met Harry briefly in 2017), are expected at the wedding.

"She was always fascinated by the royal family", Priddy told Morton.

The Los Angeles schoolgirl became so intrigued by Diana she watched videos of her 1981 wedding to Prince Charles and kept a copy of Morton's Diana: Her True Story on her bookshelf, says the author.

He said: "It is possible to trace a direct line through 25 generations to Robert I of Scotland, perhaps the most colourful of all Scottish kings".

Mr Mulroney, who is a professional wedding planner and is likely to have been involved in the preparation of the royal event, first met Meghan in 2011 when the actress filming Suits.

For the British media contemplating a new and unconventional royal bride, a trickle of royal blood is better than none at all.
