Princess Diana's siblings will attend the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle later this month, but there is one member of the family who will play a starring role - Diana's older sister, Lady Jane Fellowes.
Diana's three siblings - Earl Spencer, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes - will all be present, with Lady Jane giving a reading.
Meghan's parents, Doria Ragland and Thomas Markle will arrive in London a week before the wedding itself and both will have "important roles" on the day itself.
On the actual day, Markle will be accompanied by her mother Doria Ragland when she travels by auto to Windsor Castle. But Ms. Markle has been estranged from her father, an Emmy-award winning lighting director who moved to Mexico from the United States after declaring bankruptcy. The three siblings of Princess Diana, who died two decades ago in a auto accident, have been invited.
While her friends won't be in her wedding party, they will be in attendance! Knauf said it was something the Prince's private secretary, who is the chief wedding organiser, "is very paranoid about".
If you are one of the lucky few with a ticket to Windsor Castle for Britain's royal wedding on 19 May you might expect a feast fit for a king. "Ms Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion", the statement said.
"Prince Harry and Ms Markle are very much looking forward to welcoming Ms Markle's parents to Windsor for the wedding", he said.
She then added that she at first didn't think the wedding would go ahead because she "figured something would go awry regarding [Meghan]" before adding that she thought there may be an issue between the couple "perhaps [in a] social climbing, opportunistic way".
She will however have "bridesmaids", which are actually flower girls, as well as a handful of paige boys, which are all yet to be announced.
There's no hint as to when the couple might pose for a kiss - "I have no comments on kissing today", Knauf said.
That's because the 51-year-old OR resident has shared with the world a blistering open letter to the 33-year-old Prince Harry, warning him that his bride, former TV actress Meghan, is "a jaded, shallow, conceited woman that will make a fool of you and the royal family heritage". It features a diamond from Botswana, a location that carries a special meaning for the couple who took a trip there just weeks after they began dating in 2016.
Wedding guests arrive at the Castle's famous Round Tower by coach and enter the chapel through the South Door and take their seats. The couple now live together in Nottingham Cottage, on the grounds of Kensington Palace.
