Meghan Markle Has Reportedly Already Chosen A Maid Of Honour

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are doing their royal engagement their way!

No one knows who will be designing Markle's gown, but royal historian Marlene Koenig says it will most likely come from a British designer.

- Although royal biographer Ingrid Seward says "there is no protocol " when it comes to PDA, we nearly never see William and Kate nuzzle up like Harry and Meghan do. Despite years of tradition, Harry and Meghan have reportedly chosen a banana cake for their big day - a first for the royal family.

They applauded Markle and Harry, who announced their engagement last month. Expect a few American touches too. I wouldn't imagine for one second that they plan to sit back and be told what to do, and they won't. "I don't think what he wants, though, is to be bombarded by everyone". Markle's father, Thomas Markle, was also supposedly distressed by these comments.

Meghan's father, a former television lighting director, married Ragland in 1979, and the two divorced in 1988.

Markle has patched things up with her dad, but he lives a reclusive life in Mexico and it isn't clear if he will attend the wedding.

However, the wedding is estimated to provide a £500 million boost to Britain's economy as tourists flock to the country and Britons celebrate.

Of course, everyone remembers Kate Middleton's dress from 2011 - designed by Sarah Burton of the Alexander McQueen fashion house - that featured long sleeves, ivory and white satin.

According to the Office for National Statistics, the wedding of Harry's elder brother William to wife Kate in April 2011 led to an increase of 350 000 visitors to the United Kingdom compared to the same month the year before.

According to a report made by consultancy firm Brand Finance, the handsome redhead and his bride's wedding day will boost the economy of Great Britain by around £500 million.

Businesses in Windsor are already gearing up to take advantage of the worldwide interest in the couple.
