The news might come as surprise since Thomas Markle Sr. wasn't initially supposed to attend the royal ceremony, which will take place on May 19, 2018, at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The announcement was by the Communications Secretary to Prince Harry this Friday, May 4, in a statement regarding the Royal Wedding, as reported by E! News.

The document revealed that Markle Sr. and Ragland were delighted and looking forward to attend the ceremony, and that they would be most welcome by the members of the Royal Family.

According to the publication, Markle's parents are expected to arrive in the United Kingdom a week before the wedding, which will allow them to mingle with their future royal relatives.

It was also informed that Ragland would travel with Meghan in her carr to Windsor Castle on the morning of the ceremony and that Markle Sr. would be expected to walk by his daughter's side down the aisle.

Prince Harry will also have a say when it comes to the guest list. Meghan's future husband insists on having Prince Diana's siblings, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, Lady Jane Fellowes and Earl Charles Spencer, at the wedding.

Fellowes, who has been keeping herself away from the public eye without ever commenting on her sisters' death, will have the honor fo giving the reading. The 61-year-old is no stranger to royal festivities.

In 2011, the mother-of-three was also in attendance when Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, tied the knot, which is why Prince Harry wanted to have her mother's family present on his big day.
