Thomas Markle, Duchess Meghan’s father, didn’t manage to attend her May wedding this year. His daughter had a suit made for him for the event.


Instead of keeping it as a memento, Markle chose to sell it. Johnno Spence, a public relations consultant, was the lucky man who bought the suit according to Twitter.

Johnno Spence found Markle’s suit at a store in Chelsea for $2,653.59. He was later photographed wearing it to the UK’s Royal Ascot horse racing event.

Spence bought the outfit for about half of its original price from men’s outfitter, Oliver Brown. The men’s outfitter is known for supplying silk top hats for prestigious events


Pictures of Spence at the Royal Ascot showed him wearing the solid gray suit. The outfit features a white shirt and tie worn underneath the jacket.

It includes metal pins and a colorful rose boutonniere on the lapels. For more on this story go to our Twitter account @amomama_usa.

The suit was said to have needed some alterations before the P.R. consultant could wear it. According to Express, the dark suit worn by Spence to the Royal Ascot was probably more popular than the Royal Ascot list of 2018 best dressed.

The event featured stylish celebrities such as Kelly Brook and Helen Mirren. Markle had originally planned to walk his daughter, the Duchess of Sussex, down the aisle in May.


He missed the event due to heart problems. Markle said that he regretted missing his daughter’s event and that he was “doing much better,” reported CBS.

He said his daughter had cried when she found out that he wouldn’t be able to make it to her wedding. Markle ended up watching the event on television with the rest of the world.

Spence, who is the founder of the Public Relations firm, JSC Communications, was rumored to have attended the Royal Ascot on Tuesday. This was the same day that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan were also in attendance.

There has been no official word yet on whether the Duchess noticed the Spence wearing her father’s second-hand attire.
