African-American actress Meghan Markle said this week she would prefer her mom, Doria Ragland walk her down the aisle in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle when she exchange marriage vows with Prince Harry on May 19.
But it is not immediately know if Ragland who is a yoga instructor will showcase her Rastafarian dreadlocks hairstyle on the big day. A father traditionally walks his daughter down the aisle if he is alive. But Markle wants none of that.
The future Duchess who is reportedly super close to her mother decided to brake from that tradition and picked mom over her reclusive dad, Thomas Markle, who is white.
Markle, who will be joining Britain’s royal family in a few months, doesn’t mean the African-American future royal isn’t going to break a few traditions on her very important day.
