Meghan Markle will break one major royal rule at her wedding

Meghan Markle, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, are set to get married on May 19 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, — and although it’s no secret the gorgeous former actress has broken a number of unwritten royal traditions over the course of their year-and-a-half whirlwind courtship — she’s set to break another rule, this time at her own wedding.

While Markle’s father, Thomas, is expected to attend the wedding and walk her down the aisle — reports suggest that Markle is set to deliver a speech at her wedding reception, in place of her father. This is a huge break from royal tradition, but Markle is quite progressive.

In 2015, she spoke at the U.N. Women’s conference, stating: “I am proud to be a woman and a feminist,” and that “… a wife is equal to her husband, a sister to her brother. Not better, not worse — they are equal.”

Her wedding reception speech is reportedly expected to include a few jokes as well as an affectionate tribute to Prince Harry and a special thanks to Queen Elizabeth II.

Rule breaker or not, the public adores Meghan!
