In less than 24 hours, Meghan Markle will marry Prince Harry, thus becoming the newest member of the British Royal Family.
Obviously, planning a wedding is always hectic, and planning a royal wedding is stressful in a way that few of us could ever imagine.
And Meghan has to deal with the additional drama of watching her own family members do their damnedest to ruin the biggest day of her life.
Meghan’s siblings have been denigrating her to anyone who will listen.
Her father decided not to attend the wedding, seemingly because he was embarrassed by a minor “scandal” involving the sale of paparazzi photos to tabloid media outlets.
Needless to say, it’s not a great situation.
Fortunately, for the former actress, her soon-to-be-in-laws are as supportive as her family is obnoxious.
An insider tells Hollywood Life that Meghan has had difficulty keeping it together over the past few days but has benefited tremendously from her close relationship with Kate Middleton.
“Meghan is doing her best to keep it together with the help of Harry and her future sister-in-law,” the source says.
“Kate has stepped up to calm down Meghan as last-minute wedding changes are turning her into a nervous wreck. Kate has taken Meghan by the hand to help guide her through her final days leading to the wedding.”
Yes, Meghan has reportedly stepped in as the official fixer of the Royal Wedding 2.0.
“From helping with family issues, to royal duties and obligations, Meghan has been leaning on Kate who has been through it all and is a rock of support,” the insider adds.
“Meghan feels like Kate is the only one whom she can really relate to during her wedding crisis because she can understand what she is going through. Meghan is grateful for Kate’s support.”
Apparently, Kate’s influence is paying off.
Not only is the bride-to-be more at ease, her siblings seem to have taken note of the fact that most of the world is very much Team Meg.
“Give her a chance! I’ve always been vocal about the things I admire about her and the public has taking [sic] this too far,” Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, tweeted this week.
She then shifted the blame to one of her other siblings, writing:
“My brother needs to stop the alcoholism and lies.”
Oh, man. “Publicly trash-talking your siblings is bad! Just ask my drunk-ass loser brother over here!”
Never change, Sam.
