The Royal Family took to social media this morning to reveal who would be walking Meghan Markle down the aisle. Her father, Thomas Markle, wouldn’t be able to perform the duty because of a medical condition.

It was thought that Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, would be the one to perform the role, but a Royal was asked instead. According to the Twitter post by Kensington Palace, Prince Charles will do the honors.

Thomas Markle pulled out from attending his daughter’s wedding at the last minute this week. This meant that someone else would have to walk his daughter down the aisle.

According to the Twitter post by Kensington Palace, Meghan has asked her fiancé’s father, Prince Charles, to do the honors. The post further added that ‘The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way.’

Last week in Nice, France, Charles told reporters that the wedding would be a special day for everyone. Little did he know, at the time, that he would have such a pivotal role at the event.

After Thomas pulled out of the wedding, it was thought that Meghan’s mother would walk her down the aisle. She was the next best thing to her father.

‘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.’

Reports stated that Thomas had given his ex-wife his blessing to perform the duty. Even though someone has been chosen to walk Meghan down the aisle, Thomas still left some gaps in the proceedings.

Currently, it is unknown who will give a speech at the evening dinner. It’s speculated that Doria Ragland might perform this role.

There was no protocol that prevented Meghan from choosing her mother, a member of the Royal Family or a close friend from escorting her. She also had a choice to walk alone if she wanted to.

Hugo Vickers, Royal biographer, said the decision was solely the former actress’ to make as it was her wedding. He added that he felt she should be able to do whatever she wanted as the event was meant to be a happy one and nothing less.
