Prince Harry will be missing his mother on his wedding day, just two weeks away, but his aunt will be standing in. Lady Jane Fellowes will represent her sister, the late Princess Diana, at the May 19 ceremony at Windsor's St. George's Chapel, where she'll also do a reading, reports CBS News. Diana's two other siblings also will attend, as will bride Meghan Markle's mother and father, who are divorced. They're to meet the queen, Prince Philip, and the other British royals a week ahead of the wedding, which will see Thomas Markle walk his daughter down the aisle. CNN reports Markle won't have a maid of honor. "She has a very close knit group of friends and did not want to choose one over the other," a rep for Harry says. (Harry's pick for best man is no surprise.)
