Meghan Markle, the soon to be royal is busy prepping for her out of the world summer wedding and her dad, Thomas Markle senior, is doing his own prepping for his distant royal responsibilities. Who knows, he may even become a 'sir'. Anyway, he was snapped reading a 'Images of Britain: A Pictorial Journey Through History' while sipping on a nice cup of Starbucks in his hometown of Rosarito, Mexico, last week.

The book, published in 1990 has great reviews on Goodreads, "This book, although from the 90s, is still a pleasure to thumb through. The photographs are beautiful and it's easy to imagine what it would be like to walk the hill at Glastonbury Tor in Somerset or to gaze upon the hills of Snowdonia while reminiscing of the majestic Scottish highlands. This book takes you on a visual tour of places I've often dreamed of going." Hmm, sounds like the kind of book a smart father of a daughter like Meghan would pick.

It is being seen as a sweet gesture, as 73-year-old Thomas, is definitely distant from his daughter's soon to be family's culture. While most dads only worry about what to say and tuxedos, here is Thomas, flipping the pages of an old book, looking for some pointers. Hopefully, the Queen will be as impressed with him as the rest of the world right now. In two months, his little girl will be off living her fairytale, a dream millions can only have, and he seems to be determined to make the transition easier for her.

Thomas, along with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland will be present at the wedding and he is reportedly very excited about the ceremony. "Thomas [Senior] is overjoyed to be beside his little girl on the day she becomes a princess—even if he has to battle his demons to get there," a source told The Sun, "He’s not exactly thrilled at facing the world’s glare. He lives a reclusive life in Mexico. But nothing will stop him from having Meghan on his arm for the big day."
