She made a major change to the tradition.

Meghan Markle has reportedly made a decision in regards to her highly anticipated Royal Wedding to Prince Harry that goes against tradition, and it's probably going to add a flare to the occasion that's never been seen before.

According to the Daily Mail, Markle has not asked the Queen's official composer, Judith Weir, to contribute to the big day. Instead, she has chosen a gospel group and a teenage cellist to perform at the Royal Wedding.

Speaking with the online publication, Weir, who is the first woman to be Master of the Queen's Music, revealed that she has not been asked to compose a piece.

The site reports that two pieces by Weir's predecessor, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, were performed at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding back in 2011. The music for the Queen's wedding in 1947 was also composed by the then Master of King's Music, Sir Arnold Bax.

Speaking at the Royal Philharmonic Society awards, Weir added, "It isn't technically a State occasion. It's going to be a very big event, and I'm sure the couple have put a lot of thought into their musical choices."
