Would he want the attention that would focus on him? This isn't a quiet family wedding with a few photographs. It is an international event broadcast around the world.

I agree. The best thing would be for a brother on an uncle to do it, but that is of course out of the question.

If she doesn't want to walk alone I hope it's the PoW.

I feel terrible for Meghan.

If I wasn't exactly a fan before, I am now after weeks of reading about the Family From Hell!

That's partly why she cried so severely during Adios Noñino.

But she and Willem-Alexander entered both their civil and church ceremony together. That is custom in The Netherlands.
Sad for her but she overcame that and is embraced by the Dutch people.

If this is his way out, I hope the press respects that and leaves him be. I'm sorry but I doubt anyone is begging for news about him. The press only used the Markles to embarrass Meghan with their antics. They paid and subsidized their foolishness.

Exactly. This is confirmation bias rearing its ugly head.

Meghan has a wonderful group of people around her to support her. That is what is the most important.

Charles and Camilla visited KP this morning. I'm glad they are supporting them.

You know what....it may turn out to be for the best! We had earlier whispers of Meghan wanting her mother to walk her down the aisle and make the speech at her own wedding. It may turn out that she will get exactly that!

It's a coward's way to behave. I couldn't believe that KP's statement still included that Meghan and Harry continue to ask for his privacy. Let him fend for himself at this point. You can't save someone when they don't learn from their mistakes. Not only will this bring on added scrutiny to him, but his has put all the consequences of his own actions on his daughter on her wedding day all because he's embarrassed by his own behavior, which he should be btw.

Harry and Meghan aren't no where close to my favorite British royals, but I have to feel sorry for her. She has already faced so much criticism and problems even within her own family and this is most definitely not helping that situation. Her father is not walking her down the aisle, when I here this sentence I think of a comedy/soap opera not of a royal wedding. This is Meghan's long-awaited entrance into the RF and her father is casting a shadow that will be very evident on the big day. If this is on purpose and the story is true, shame on him.

What a dreadful situation for Meghan to be put in. However, she strikes me as a very strong and dignified lady, and I have no doubt she will get through Saturday with a smile on her face, however sad she may feel inside.
And the Royal Family have changed in the past years - let's hope we see them wrap their arms around Meghan, make things as easy as possible for her, and welcome her into their family. I'm sure Prince Harry will be thinking of her above all else, and I'm also sure Camilla will prove a very pragmatic, calm and reassuring voice in this difficult situation.

I'm really sorry for Meghan and don't believe the latest story about 'trying to brush up his image' (there would be far better ways to do it than have yourself photographed in the same type of clothes in staged pictures faking some nonsensical preparation) nor the story about the heart attack (which is hurtful to people who truly suffered a heart attack and barely survived - and even more so for those whose loved ones died of a heart attack).

I'm among those who think it a realistic scenario that Harry might never meet his future father-in-law although my guess would be that KP is working hard trying to convince mr Markle to show up for the wedding as him not attending is considered worse optics than going through the motions although by now most people would know (and if they don't it will be discussed while Meghan enters the church) about his betrayal of his daughter and future son-in-law. So, I'm not sure that is the best for the couple. Probably best if Meghan just had her mom for support on her wedding day and not the stress induced by forcing her father to join her.

The entire situation is so incredibly sad all the way around. But what's worse is that this just adds fuel to the fire for those already throwing around so much criticism of Meghan and of Harry's choice to marry her. Even though every royal or even every famous wedding has it's detractors and those who would purposely try to stir trouble, I feel like this wedding has just been surrounded by so much drama and negativity and criticism right from the start. There's been so much criticism and skepticism of Meghan's background, her family, her race, the fact that she's American, her divorce, her profession. I just really feel like she must be feeling like she's bringing nothing but embarrassment to the BRF. I know that in her position I would, at this point, seriously be questioning my own suitability to join this family. Not that Harry or any member of the BRF are making her feel this way but I imagine there will be plenty of comparisons to Kate's family, the "eyerolls" coming Meghan's way from Beatrice and Eugenie, etc. Yes, those are all tabloid stories, etc., but I imagine that they start to have an impact after awhile. I can't imagine that poor Meghan isn't having a serious case of the "maybe I'm not good enoughs" right about now.

My father died shortly before my own wedding and the husband of my best friend, someone I had also known a long time, escorted me in. I will always adore him for this.

Poor Meghan. My wish is for Prince Charles to escort her----because he did not have a daughter of his own to honor this way---and because it sends the message that SHE IS ONE OF US NOW to the regrettable Markle clan.

This whole situation lands on the doorstep of Samantha Markle. Badly advising her father.

This make me so upset that Meghan has been put through this.

It would be sweet if Charles could walk Meghan up the aisle should Doria not do that honor. It would be a definite shout out that Meghan is family and that they have her back and support her when she needs it.

As time passes, it gives more and more credence to the statement Harry made around the holidays about Meghan now having the family she's never had before. The Markle side has turned out to be a three ring circus.
Yes; I also remember how many called for PH to apologize.

And I admire Prince Harry so much more because he was man enough to stand by his words and not apologize for what he said! Just goes to show....there was a lot going on that we, as outsiders looking in, knew nothing about.

Disagree Dman—she might offer to take the fall BUT he knows better. Looks to me that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Agreed! Where I may have felt sympathy before, I have ZERO for him now!
