Queen Elizabeth II attended a Christmas Day church service as a crowd of local residents gathered like every year in  2017. All the senior members of the royal family were present along with newcomer Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s American fiancee. It was her first public appearance with other senior royals, and she posed with photographs with the whole group, including the Queen. The crowd was larger than in previous years, perhaps because of curiosity about Markle. This was outside the royal protocol as she wasn’t an official member yet.

The days leading up to the Royal Wedding were full of confusion. It was about whether Meghan Markle’s father Thomas Markle would be walking her down the aisle. This was because he was embroiled in a paparazzi photo scandal and later had medical complications. When it was made clear that he would not be attending, many questioned how the bride would choose to enter the chapel. Meghan made the powerful choice to walk herself down the aisle towards her future husband. She was then met halfway by her father in law to-be Prince Charles. (ES – Insider)
