Thomas Markle never expected to become related to the British royal family, but he probably also never expected his daughter, Meghan Markle, to fall in love with Prince Harry of Wales. Now, against all odds, his daughter will become English royalty on May 19, and he wants to know a little something about the country that will suddenly become very important to the rest of her life.
Markle was spotted in a Starbucks doing some last-minute research on Britain.

It's important he knows a thing or two before his daughter's wedding…

After his research, Markle probably feels like a real Englander.

Perhaps the Queen is making similar preparations to meet her new family members!

The photo also inducts Markle into the ranks of "celebrities photographed reading in public." It's a prestigious club.
These pictures will be beloved by moms everywhere!

Congratulations on your daughter's upcoming nuptials, Mr. Markle, and congratulations on the shout-out from Dictionary.com! We're not sure which is more exciting, but you must be cloud 9 either way.
