Meghan Markle will reportedly break a royal wedding tradition by delivering a speech about her fiancé, Prince Harry, at their upcoming May nuptials. According to The Sunday Times, the former Suits actress will give an “affectionate tribute” to her love and their family and friends. The report adds that Markle plans on also including a few jokes in her speech.
“She wants to have the chance to thank her husband and everyone who has supported them,” a source told The Times. “Harry thinks it’s a great idea.”
Markle, 36, and Harry, 33, are set to wed at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018. The former actress has already “broken” a bevy of royal protocols, including stepping out in a messy bun.
She’s also planning on having a maid of honor and not a chief bridesmaid. She reportedly also wants her mother, Doria Ragland, to walk her down the aisle, instead of her father, Thomas Markle.
The couple announced their engagement in November 2017.
