She refused to say how much money she'd made from the time Prince Harry and Meghan Markle went public with their relationship.

Ms Markle and her mother Doria Ragland will stay at Cliveden House on the National Trust estate about 10 miles from the wedding venue in Windsor.

They will be pulling the couple's carriage of choice an Ascot Landau along with another four horses during the procession.

While this includes food and drink for guests, flowers and the dress, when factoring in security, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding could total a staggering $42 million United States dollars - which is not being footed by the royal family.

Other members of the royal family will also be arriving in style in state cars including Bentleys, Rolls-Royces and Daimlers.

There is no set rule that dictates who walks the royal bride down the aisle, The Perfect Day, a United Kingdom -based wedding forum, says.

"Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George's Chapel", read the official statement in early May.

THE father of Meghan Markle claims he has not spoken to his daughter since pulling out of the royal wedding and is "popping Valium" as a result of the emotional upset.

"They don't photograph you buying vegetables and pH water, they photograph you in as unflattering ways as they can".


She reiterated in the interview that she was very concerned for his health, but said she did not want their father to miss out on the big day.

Meghan Markle's father is under an "unbelievable amount of stress" ahead of the royal wedding, her half-sister Samantha has said.

Meghan Markle's parents are making headlines in the days before their daughter's royal wedding to Prince Harry. So, Samantha Markle told ITV that she told their father to stage positive photos for the paparazzi to help improve his image.

She also said she did not harbour any ill feelings about the paparazzi photos it was revealed he staged on Monday. "Some of it has been hidden from the public - the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get to her front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry to her home and the calls to police that followed; the substantial bribes offered by papers to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of almost every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life".

TMZ said Thomas Markle had decided not to attend the marriage of his actress daughter to the British prince, who is Queen Elizabeth's grandson, because he did not wish to embarrass the royals after media reports that he had staged paparazzi photographs.

He said he did it to "rehabilitate" his image but had been left looking "stupid and hammy" - and would not be travelling to the United Kingdom to give her away in order to spare her further embarrassment.

Meghan's nephew Tyler, his brother Thomas Dooley, and their mother Tracy - the wife of Meghan's estranged half brother Thomas Markle Jr - were sighted at Heathrow Airport. Not surprisingly, Samantha has not been invited to the wedding.

They all are set to be "special correspondents" on Good Morning Britain.

"Of course I'd walk her down the aisle", he told the outlet.
