Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to tie the knot this weekend in what is easily one of the most anticipated weddings in recent years. Royal fans around the world will be tuning in to watch Harry and Markle exchange vows, but not everyone is happy about the nuptials. Kate Middleton is reportedly furious that the Suits alum didn’t invite her sister, Pippa, to the ceremony.
Markle and Harry are getting married inside St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle this Saturday. Markle did not invite Pippa to the wedding, even though she was invited to Pippa’s wedding to James Matthews last year. Kate, of course, will be at the wedding with her husband, Prince William, but she wasn’t happy about her sister getting snubbed.

Inside sources told Radar Online that Kate is “upset” about Pippa getting the cold shoulder. The Duchess of Cambridge is also embarrassed by Markle’s family drama that has surfaced over the past few weeks. Markle’s father, Thomas, backed out of the wedding this week after a health scare landed him in the hospital. Thomas was supposed to walk Markle down the aisle, a task her mother will likely perform in his stead.
Insiders claim that members of the royal family, including Kate and William, are blaming Markle for the drama surrounding the wedding. They are also reportedly worried about Harry and Markle’s future and whether or not more drama will surface after they tie the knot. Despite the concern, Harry is sticking by the former actress, though he is anxious about how the scandal might impact Markle moving forward.
This week, Markle was spotted leaving the comforts of Kensington Palace in a white dress to attend a rehearsal for the big day. Instead of looking like a happy bride, however, the Suits alum appeared glum as she sat by Harry on the ride to Windsor Castle. Kate and William took a separate car to the rehearsal and also looked unhappy during the outing.

Markle and Harry have not commented on the rumors surrounding the wedding. Kensington Palace released a special statement this week about Markle’s father and his health problems. The palace assured fans that everything is still on schedule for the wedding and revealed that Markle experienced a “deeply personal time” after her father’s heart attack.
Meghan Markle has asked Prince Charles to walk her down the aisle in place of her father when she marries Prince Harry on May 19.
