Meghan Markle to Walk Over Henry VIII Grave at Wedding

Henry VIII Would've Said "Over My Dead Body" to Meghan Marrying Harry ... So, That's Exactly What She'll Do

In just 11 days, Megan Markle will marry Prince Harry at St. George's Chapel, which is on Windsor Castle grounds and a site where many members of the Royal family have been baptized and married. And in one instance, buried …

Henry VIII, who completed the church 500 years ago, is buried inside a grey marble slab that is sunken underneath the center aisle - the one the bride will walk down to marry her Prince. Essentially, she will walk over Henry's grave. And that's not even the creepiest part!

The weird thing is that it might actually be payback. As in, seriously old payback. You see, it appears that Megan's great, great, great maternal grandmother was related to a titled English Lord, who was beheaded by Henry VIII for suspicion of being part of a rebellion against the monarchy in 1536 reports the Daily Telegraph.

And here she is, centuries later, giving him the boot. Or in this case, we're thinking a white heel?
