Prince Charles touchingly walked Meghan Markle down the aisle (photos)

Meghan Markle's special day didn't go entirely according to plan, but Prince Charles, her father-in-law, stepped in to save the day and walked her down the aisle.

Initially, her father, Thomas Markle Sr., was the one who was supposed to accompany his daughter on the way to Prince Harry, but on Monday, May 14, 2018, the 73-year-old announced that he wouldn't be able to attend the ceremony.

Markle senior suffered a heart attack last week and was ordered to miss the Royal Wedding by his doctor. Following the news, Buckingham Palace arranged the switch, as it can be seen in the photo shared on Twitter.

Wearing a dapper suit, Queen Elizabeth II's son, and father to Prince William and Prince Harry, the Charles guided Meghan through St. George's Chapel, at Windsor Castle, in front of 600 guests.

Meghan couldn't help but smile brightly as she walked with the flowered veil covering her beautiful features. Despite the happy moment, the now Duchess of Sussex confessed that she was disappointed for not having her father there.

The revelation was made through the Royal Family's twitter page. In the post, Meghan wrote that she had always cared for her father and that he should be given the necessary space to focus on his health.

Doria Ragland was the only member of Meghan's family to witness her and Prince Harry tie the knot, since neither her half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr., nor half-sister, Samantha Grant, were invited.

The latter recently came to public to admit that she was the one who told her father to strike a deal with the paparazzi and pose for staged photos of himself getting ready for the Royal Wedding.
