It’s been announced Prince Charles will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle tomorrow, (May 19), when she marries his son, Prince Harry.

The announcement was made by Kensington Palace after it was revealed her father, Thomas Markle, was unable to attend the wedding due to last minute heart surgery.

On Thursday, May 17, Ms Markle released a statement in which she hoped her father would have the space to recover and focus more on his health.

A statement from Kensington Palace said:

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.

As an outspoken activist and actress, Meghan Markle is already proving to be a truly unique addition to the Royal family.

The 36-year-old former Suits actor is set to marry Prince Harry this weekend, May 19, breaking hearts on both sides of the pond.

While details of the wedding have remained tight-lipped, it’s a fair bet this royal occasion will not be the stuffy, stiff-upper-lipped event of days gone by.

It appears as if Meghan Markle herself will be shaping the wedding to reflect the couple’s fun-loving personalities. While some may view this as sacrilige and breakdown of ‘Royal tradition’, this is a modern, independent-thinking couple.

In an interesting take on a centuraies old regal custom, with Meghan herself said to be delivering a speech at the reception where she will give an ‘affectionate’ tribute to her husband-to-be.

The speech is reported to include a thank you to the Queen as well as family and friends. There will also apparently be a couple of cheeky jokes, which let’s face it, is brave when your audience includes the bloody Queen.
