Prince Charles is to walk Meghan Markle own the aisle, the Palace has revealed.
It could be recalled Thomas Markle, the bride’s father, pulled out due to a health condition, prompting the question of who would perform the role.
Kensington Palace announced: “Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel on her Wedding Day.
“The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way.”
It was learnt that the Prince of Wales will accompany Ms Markle down just one half of the aisle (the second half) at St George’s Chapel but no one will give her away.
The Prince of Wales has expressed his excitement about the wedding saying, “It’s absolutely marvellous. It’s going to be a very special day for everybody.”
It was thought her mother Doria Ragland would walk the bride down the aisle as there was no protocol preventing Ms Markle from choosing her mother, a member of the Royal family, or a close friend from escorting her. She could also walk alone, should she wish.
