#RoyalWedding: Palace Confirms Prince Charles To Walk Meghan Markle Down The Aisle

Gallipoli Campaign Centenary: The Commemorations, April 25

His Royal Highness, Prince Charles is set to walk Meghan Markle own the aisle, the Palace has revealed. The question of who would perform the role was raised after Thomas Markle, the bride’s father, pulled out due to a health condition.

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.”

 

The Prince of Wales has expressed his excitement about the wedding, telling reporters in Nice, France last week: “It’s absolutely marvellous. It’s going to be a very special day for everybody.”

 

It was initially thought that her mother Ms. Doria Ragland would walk the bride down the aisle – so this decision may shock some Royal fans.

 

Mr. Thomas Markle gave  his ex-wife his blessing to perform the duty. Mr Markle’s inability to attend has left other gaps in the proceedings. It is unknown who will give a speech at the evening dinner – this role may fall to her mother.

 

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. Hugo Vickers, royal biographer, said of Ms Markle’s decision: “It’s her wedding and I think she should be able to do whatever she likes. “It’s meant to be a happy occasion and that’s what it’s all about.”
