After months of speculation about the intricacies of the big day, a source is reported to have told the Mail on Sunday that Meghan’s dad will be by his daughter’s side in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The paper reported a ‘close confidante’ of the 73-year-old Hollywood lighting director – who has yet to meet the prince – will be flying in for the ceremony from his quiet retirment village in Mexico.

‘He’s very excited about it. He’s very close to her [Meghan] and he’s very happy,’ the friend reportedly told the Mail.

‘All the pressure has been hard on him and he’s just trying to stay out of the limelight.’

It has been rumoured that Meghan could break with convention and have both her father and her mother, Doria, walk her down the aisle on May 19.

Doria, 61, met Harry at last year’s Invictus Games in Toronto and the Prince previously described her as ‘amazing’.

Tom and Doria, a social worker, divorced when Meghan was six but she is said to ‘adore’ both her parents.

‘Tom has said from the start that he wants to walk her down the aisle, and that has never changed,’ the source added.

Harry and Meghan are understood to have sent their wedding invitations out last week and among the rumoured guests invited were David and Victoria Beckham and Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau.

It is estimated the ‘wedding of the year’ will cost upwards of £32million.
