Royal’s Recycle Thomas Markle’s Wedding suit
Have you followed the Royal Wedding closely? If you did, you would know that it was among the biggest events of the year. While Meghan Markle’s father couldn’t attend the event, the wedding did catch the eyes of hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. Britain went into a frenzy, and media reports for nearly a month carried one or the other story about the wedding. Even the UK casino industry was waiting for the event to take place, as the best U.K. casino reviews would tell you.
Thomas Markle’s Wedding Suit up for Sale
The suit, which was originally designed to be worn by the father of the present Duchess of Sussex, Thomas Markle was sold to a public relation consultant Johnno Spence. Johnno also bought other additional clothing made by the tailor for Mr. Markle. He grabbed the deal at a mere £2,000. Johhno Spence was later photographed at the UK’s Royal Ascot with the suit.
He grabbed the deal from the men’s outfitter, Oliver Brown, who is known for supplying silk top hats at the prestigious events in the UK. He is also an official licensee of the Berkshire racecourse. It was a stylish grey suit, with metal pins, with a suave white shirt inside accompanied by a catchy tie under the jacket.
Fortunately for Johnno, the suit was almost the perfect fit, apart from some minor alterations. It was not a bad idea if someone is getting such a suit at nearly half of its original price. The suit has become more famous than the 2018 Royal Ascot’s best dressed, leaving behind celebs like Kelly Brook and Helen Mirren. However, there have been many criticisms for it too, and some people found it to be ‘reprehensible’.
Thomas Markle, the father of Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, was supposed to wear this suit down the aisle with his daughter at The Royal Wedding Mr. Markle could not attend the wedding due to a heart problem and the controversies surrounding the photo staging scandal.
A Look at the Controversy
Just a week before The Royal Wedding the father of Meghan Markle was accused of staging a series of fake pictures collaborating with British paparazzi. In these pictures, he was seen posing while giving the measurements for the wedding suit and in another picture he was seen browsing the photos of her daughter and her future husband Prince Harry. The controversy took a new shape when Mr. Markle gave a television Interview during which he discussed about when the couple were planning to have kids and also recalled a private conversation with Prince Harry about Brexit and The U.S President Donald Trump.
Mr. Markel decided not to save this suit as souvenir for lifetime and instead decided to recycle it and sold it to the Public Relation manager Johnno Spence. He said in an interview that had regretted that he could not attend the wedding. Meghan Markle reportedly broke down after hearing the news about her father’s illness. Mr Markle had to watch the event on television like the rest of us who were not invited at The Royal Wedding.
Johnno Spenco, the founder of the Public Relations Firm JSC, wore it to the Royal Ascot on Tuesday that was also attended by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Wonder if she saw the man wearing his father’s suit!
