Royal wedding budget 'doubles' for Megan Markle's dress

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby

In January, Meghan's controversial half-sister Samantha Grant took to Twitter to shut down reports Meghan's mother Doria would be walking her down the aisle, claiming that their father Thomas wouldn't miss the opportunity for the world.

She seemingly broke another royal tradition by wearing head-to-toe black during a public engagement in Cardiff.

The baptism is not required for her to marry the prince, but allegedly she wants to do it out of respect for Queen Elizabeth, who is the head of the church.

Fans are preparing to say goodbye to Meghan in Suits on 25 April, in a two-hour finale, with several speculating what is in store for her character.

Click through the slideshow above for all the ways Meghan has defied royal custom.

This will include: 1,200 nominated members of the public from all over the United Kingdom; 200 people from across the range of charities and organisations the couple are associated with; 100 students from two local schools; 610 Windsor Castle community members and residents; 530 Members of The Royal Households and Crown Estate.

Before we know it, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be headed to St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle for their nuptials, but in order for this to happen Meghan must be baptised this weekend.

Following the surgery, however, doctors stressed that there was no friction between PSG and Brazil's federation, the CBF.

In September 2011, Markle married her longtime boyfriend, producer Trevor Engelson, and celebrated with a Jewish wedding ceremony.

The recent data, commissioned by United Kingdom website VoucherCodesPro.co.uk from over 2,000 Britons aged 18 and up, found that Markle was the most relatable female royal.

In a close second was the Duchess of Cambridge, who scored 86.8 per cent.

About 1,200 of those invited will be members of the general public.

However, Meghan and Harry are allowed a church wedding as, in 2002, the Church of England agreed that divorced people could remarry in church, with the discretion of the priest.

Are you excited for the royal wedding and planning a celebration?

'I wish them many years of love, happiness and fulfilment and ask that God blesses them throughout their married life together'.
