Role of Meghan Markle's parents in wedding

And while Diana was not considered a commoner, she was still very relatable as a princess and set a certain tone that really resonated with the public, and according to Sharron Molcak of RoyalTeaWithJam, it's that relatability that the public still longs for. "First, she's a Hollywood actress, and we haven't seen anyone like this since Grace Kelly".

While Jo Marney, girlfriend of the then-UKIP leader Henry Bolton, was suspended from the party in January after text messages she sent were revealed to contain racial slurs about Meghan Markle "tainting" the royal family. In fact, there are several examples within the Queen's immediate family that Molcak can name. Kensington Palace has also confirmed that Prince Louis, who will be just four-weeks-old on the day, will not be attending the wedding-meaning the duchess will break from maternity leave to celebrate the union. Less than two months later, in February, Markle received a letter that reportedly contained a "racist message" and led to an anthrax scare.

This isn't the first time Ferguson hasn't made the guest list of a royal event as she wasn't invited to Prince William and Duchess Catherine's wedding back in 2011 at Westminster Abbey, London, and went on holiday to Thailand instead.

Meghan, whose father is Caucasian and mother is African-American, said in a BBC interview in November that it had been "disheartening" to receive negative attention about her ethnicity in the early period of her relationship with Harry.

"I believe she will be with a British designer certainly for the wedding dress", Castigliano says.

Alongside Meghan's parents, the happy couple are also "keen to involve" Harry's late mother Princess Diana - who passed away in 1997 - in the ceremony, and her sister, Lady Jane Fellowes, will give a reading.

When it comes to other commoners marrying into royal families in general, that fascination comes from our ability to put ourselves in their shoes, Molcak says.
