But they're getting married in less than 2 weeks!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to get married on May 19th. If you do the math, that puts the Royal Wedding just 12 days away. Twelve days!! 

It's officially crunch time for the couple and all of the last minute preparations for a wedding ceremony that is set to break online streaming records and be watched by people all over the World. This will be the 16th Royal wedding since 1863 at Windsor.

As we get closer to the big day, we are still learning details of the wedding. Up until this weekend, there was no confirmation that Meghan's parents would attend the big event. But Kennsington Palace confirmed that her parents will be there and her father, Thomas Markle, will walk Meghan down the aisle. But here's the kicker. Meghan's father has yet to meet Prince Harry, the man his daughter will marry in less than two weeks. How is that even possible?

“Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion. … Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry’s family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day.”

Prince Harry did ask Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, for permission before asking Meghan to marry him. From other stories I have read, it seems that Meghan's relationship with her father is not a super close one. I guess it makes sense that Harry would ask her mother because that's who Meghan's closer too. But I still cannot believe that Harry has yet to meet her father. 

If he's important enough to walk her down the aisle, I'd think it would be important for the two to meet well in advance of getting married. Although both of my parents have passed, I do have family that any man who wants to be serious with me would have to meet before we'd ever get engaged and especially married.
