It’s a well known fact that Prince Harry is extremely close to his grandfather, Prince Philip – so much so that it is believed he pushed the date forward of his wedding in order to make sure that retired Philip would be able to see him walk down the aisle.
However, the ailing Prince’s attendance at the May 19 event appears to be up in the air following the 96 year old’s hip operation last month.
Following a slew of royal wedding updates this morning, which included the news that Meghan's father Thomas Markle will walk the bride down the aisle, and the newlyweds plan to postpone their honeymoon, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace shared that Prince Philip might not be at the royal wedding.
When asked about his attendance, a spokesperson for the royal family reportedly said, "We very much hope so," and that there would be more information "closer to the time."
