When it comes to learning about England, Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas, gets an A for effort.

The proud father recently got caught up on British history by reading a picture book titled Images of Britain: A Pictorial Journey Through History. The retired Emmy Award-winning lighting director was spotted flipping through the pages at a Starbucks near his current residence in Rosarito Beach, Mexico.

The photo immediately went viral, considering Meghan is set to marry Prince Harry in less than two months. Although he hasn’t met his future son-in-law yet, Thomas is expected to receive a family coat of arms and walk his daughter down the aisle.

Kensington Palace announced the engagement in November 2017. Shortly after, Meghan’s dad issued a joint statement with her mom, Doria Ragland, congratulating the happy couple.

“We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry,” it read. “Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.”

Hey, at least he’s informed.
