Kensington Palace has confirmed who will be walking Meghan Markle down the aisle–and it's probably not who you think.
One to break with tradition, Markle will walk herself halfway down the aisle, meeting up with her future father-in-law, Prince Charles, who will walk her the rest of the way to her Prince.
It’s worth noting that Meghan will still walk half the aisle by herself (with just the page boys and flower girls behind her). Charles will be waiting further down to escort her from the end of the Nave to the altar. pic.twitter.com/bFSFMKHHau— Omid Scobie (@scobie) May 18, 2018
Despite having confirmed that Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, would be escorting the bride-to-be down the aisle, Kensington Palace now says Markle's father will no longer even attend the wedding. This information comes after news broke that Markle's father sold photographs of himself preparing for the Royal Wedding–something he has since said he regrets. The drama continues after he claimed to have recently suffered a heart attack, and is now allegedly undergoing heart surgery –keeping him from traveling across the pond.
Following the scandal, the Palace asked the public for "understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation." The statement went on to say how this is a deeply personal moment for the royal couple.
We hope her father has a speedy recovery and can meet Prince Harry soon.
