JUST IN: The royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry has just hit a bit of a snag, as the official presiding over it has just made a surprising announcement.
Fox News reported that Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, admitted that he is more nervous than usual about the May 19 royal wedding.
“Unlike recent weddings, I must not drop the ring,” he said with a laugh. “I must not forget to get the vows in the right order as I did at the rehearsal for one of my children’s weddings.”
Welby went on to give insight about the couple’s royal vows.
“At the heart of it is two people who have fallen in love with each other, who are committing their lives to each other with the most beautiful words and profound thoughts, who do it in the presence of god through Jesus Christ,” he said. “You pray for them to have the strength to fulfill their vows and you seek to do it in a way that respects their integrity and honors their commitment.”
Welby isn’t the only person who thinks something might be “off” about this wedding. The entire British government is worried that the wedding may set off an international incident, as Meghan and Harry have insisted on inviting Barack and Michelle Obama despite being advised not to out of risk of offending President Donald Trump. A royal source said that Harry and Markle “want to do things their own way,” despite aides advising them to hold back on the invite.
“The invitations are going out now, but Mr and Mrs Obama still have to respond,” a royal source said. “I am very, very sure they will attend though. Harry and Meghan want to do things their own way. They are inviting their own friends, and not on the advice of aides.”
Meghan has previously openly bashed Trump in the press, making it clear that she is a huge fan of Obama. A 2016 interview just surfaced in which Meghan bashed then-presidential candidate Trump. When Meghan was asked how then-presidential candidate Trump’s momentum could be slowed down, she held nothing back with her response.
“It’s really the moment that I go, we film Suits in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada,” Meghan replied. “I mean come on, if that’s reality we are talking about, come on, that is a game changer in terms of how we move in the world here.”
“Yes of course Trump is divisive. Think about just female voters alone,” she continued. “I think it was in 2012, the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points. That’s a huge number and with as misogynistic as Trump is and so vocal about it, that’s a huge chunk of it. You’re not just voting for a woman if it’s Hillary because she’s a woman, but certainly because Trump has made it easy to see that you don’t really want that kind of world that he’s painting.”
