After it was announced that Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas, would not attend the upcoming Royal wedding, people started thinking about who could walk her down the aisle.


According to Daily Mail, many options have been discussed, including Prince William, Prince Philip, and even Duchess Kate Middleton. However, there are two people who might replace Meghan’s father.

The first one is her own mother, Doria Ragland. It is a possibility that has been around the Internet from the very first moment the wedding was announced due to the fact that Meghan’s relationship with Thomas is not that good.

Ragland has been keeping a low profile lately and has been seen running some errands near her home in Los Angeles before flying to the U.K., where the wedding will take place.


Before learning that Thomas would not go to the wedding, Ragland was expected to have an important role in the ceremony, reported Daily Mail. She is expected to ride with her daughter in the car to the chapel in Windsor Castle.

Apart from that, Ragland is expected to meet Queen Elizabeth, Princes Philip, Charles, and William, Camilla, and Kate before the ceremony.

The second person who might walk Meghan down the aisle is Charles, Prince Harry’s father and Meghan’s father-in-law. While it would be an interesting and nice gesture, everything suggests that Ragland will be the selected one.  


Things wouldn’t have been this complicated if Thomas hadn’t opted out of the wedding. The same source reported that he decided so after suffering a heart attack in Mexico, the country where he lives in.

The heart attack news came out after it was revealed that he was willing to set up images of him being measured for his wedding suit and searching online for articles about Meghan.

Finally, the source pointed out he chose not to go to the wedding as a way to ‘spare her further embarrassment.’ The truth is that the wedding will take place with or without him on May 19, 2018, at the St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.
