Things we know about Meghan Markle's wedding to Prince Harry (opens in new tab): 1) It takes place on May 19. 2) It's happening at St. George's chapel in Windsor Castle. 3) There will be hats.
Other than that, what's inarguably the event of the year is shrouded in mystery and speculation—but when it comes to who is walking Meghan down the aisle, it appears as though she's willing to break tradition. E! (opens in new tab) reports that Meghan wants her mother Doria Ragland to walk her to the alter instead of her father Thomas Markle.
Typically, brides are "given away" (ew ew ew ew) by their dads—and when Kate Middleton married Prince William she was walked down the aisle by her father Michael Middleton. That said, E! reports that Meghan is hoping to break a few traditions during her wedding—this being one of them.

It should be noted, by the way, that both Doria and Thomas Markle issued a joint statement (opens in new tab) about Meghan's wedding (read it in the tweet above)—so her dad isn't quite as reclusive as people claim, and appears to have a relationship with his daughter.
