Overnight, news emerged that Meghan Markle wants to eschew tradition and have her mother walk her down the aisle at her upcoming wedding to Prince Harry.
According to E! News, Markle is “hoping to break a tradition or two", with a source allegedly telling the publication she wants Doria Ragland by her side rather than her reclusive father, Thomas Markle.
But Meghan’s sister, Samantha Markle, who has a habit of pointing out “fake” news on social media, is here to put a pin in the report:
“Muck about Doria walking Meg down the aisle is NOT true,” Samantha tweeted. “Our father will walk her down the aisle.”
Meghan has reportedly not spoken to Samantha for over a decade however, leading some to wonder if she’s even invited to the royal wedding. She also recently snapped back at Prince Harry after he referred to the royals as “the family (Meghan) has never had”.
“Actually she has a large family who were always there with her and for her,” Samantha tweeted in response. “Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses. No one was estranged, she was just too busy.”
On the other hand, Doria and Thomas seem keen for their daughter to wed Prince Harry.
"We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry, the pair said in a statement following the royal engagement announcement. “Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together."
