I absolutely agree! With all the contoversy around her ethnicity, being an American and her family behavior, it would be incredibly touching for Prince Charles to step in and offer to escort her. He has stated in the past that he wished he had a daughter, so I can see this being a special moment for him as well as a clear statement for the world that she is truly welcomed into the family by the future monarch.

I completely agree. I was just going to post this but you took the words right out of my mouth!

I like the idea of Charles walking her down the aisle (just like Olav walked Sonja down the aisle, a sign of fully support and a warm welcome), but still, I want Doria, she deserves such honour. (honestly I like their arrangement but from the very beginning I lowkeyly hope Doria will escort her)

I don't understand why anyone has to walk her down the aisle in this day-and-age. She is a modern woman and no one has to give her away. I have been to weddings of divorced women that walked beautifully down alone. If they really wanted a modern, lets not have a traditional wedding or formal "sit-down" luncheon affair, they could easily get away with that. What ever, it will all turn out fine

That would be the best possible outcome, imo.
It sends such a clear message, and it would be a lovely gesture on Charles' part.

I don't so much think it's because someone has to walk her down the aisle but it's probably more of the fact that she wants someone to walk her down the aisle. Speaking from personal experience, my father was one of those toxic people that it was better to be cut off from. When I got married I could have walked alone down the aisle and no one would have thought anything of it but, if I'm honest, I needed someone to walk with me because I needed the support. I'm not a "center of attention" kind of girl and I had a pretty traditional wedding because I wanted my grandparents and great-grandparents to be able to be there but I was absolutely terrified of having to walk alone and have those 100 people in the pews staring at me and me alone. I can only imagine what Meghan must be feeling at the prospect of having to walk alone with 600 pairs of eyes in person and millions more on television watching her and her alone. In the end I asked my cousin to walk with me and we still joke about how hard I clutched his arm when my nerves were starting to get the better of me. But for Meghan's sake I certainly hope she has someone (Charles, Doria, an unknown uncle, someone) who can fill that role for her.

Completely agree. It would be a show of support for their newest family member.

Modern isn't that you have to do something differently. It's that you have the choice to. And I have to wonder if the brides are thinking of themselves as properties to be given away like the old time, or if they want the support. I'd imagine it's the latter.

I hope she will walk alone because it represents better the situation. She will get more sympathy, too. However, I think she'll be with her mother.

In my opinion, Prince Charles would do it with grace and love but only if forced and Harry might not even be that happy about it. I think PC is in a tough spot at the moment.

Again it goes back to the patrilineal concept of family. The bride is leaving her father’s family to join her groom’s family and that is why she also takes a new family name.

In Meghan’s case, it makes no sense really as she is a divorced, 36-year-old woman who has been living on her own for quite some time.

A lot of things can go very back. However, society has changed. My point is that, modern isn't dictating what one can and cannot do, but if they want to.

More sites covering this so it's seems Thomas really does want to walk her down the aisle - https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...not-receiving/

https://www.elle.com/culture/celebri...-aisle-report/

https://www.washingtonpost.com/enter...=.3a28dd98f3d9

I really, really hope for Meghan's sake that he is able to make it. What's the latest that he can leave the States/Mexico and realistically turn up for the wedding? Friday morning?

Also odd to me that nowhere in the TMZ article is he quoted as saying that he wants to walk Meghan down the aisle because he loves her and want to be there for her big day, it's because he want to be part of history. Hmmm.

Okay, I'm not usually trying to think the worst about people, but this quote of Mr. Markle really irked me.

Quote:
Of course I'd walk her down the aisle. This is a historic moment. I'd like to be a part of history.
A part of history? Really? No "I want to support my daughter" or "I want to be with my daughter", just "I'd like to be a part of history". I'm trying to give him the benefit of a doubt, but right now it's just hard.

That said, I hope he recovers well and gets back to full health as soon as possible, that the Sunday will be a lovely, amazing day for everyone involved and Meghan will be as happy as she could be. Lord knows she deserves it. Huge, huge kudos to her for getting through all of the family drama.

As I said, if he really just had a heart attack, he is in no condtion to take an 11 -hour intercontinental flight. No way it is going to happen.

THAT bothers me. I'm just going to respect Meghan's wishes and leave it at that.

Unfortunately, instead of focusing on the finishing touches to her wedding and spending time with her loved ones, Meghan has to be a parent to her own parent. My belief remains that Meghan loves her father, but familial relationships are complex. They are especially tricky when you have someone that consistently show poor judgment. At some point, you have to love them from afar to prevent them from dragging you down. Quite frankly, from what I'm seeing right now, she loves him and is trying her best to protect him, but he simply doesn't deserve her. I thought this was a good article in Grazia.

Personally I think it's too late to a] mend fences, b] arrive in ANY 'fit state', c] attend rehearsals, d] 'bond' with the Groom, e] grovel to HMQ, [and especially to the DoE] and f] get a Morning Coat.

Far better if he stays in the seclusion he professes to crave [and stfu FOREVER].

Whatever his motives, they make sense though. Even today, people watch videos on YouTube of royal weddings that took place 8O years ago like Queen Astrid’s or Queen Ingrid’s ( at least I do). If he walks Meghan down the aisle, Tom Sr.’s. Image will become a historic document .
