Yes it's been said we will get to see them as they depart for the evening reception.

I don't think honoring her father's wishes are mandatory, especially in this situation.

The thing is, me (and some others here) have expressed the idea that Charles is not quite right to walk Meghan down the aisle. He's there to support his son, not technically there for her. Plus he's going to "give her away" when she was never "his" in the first place? Does not quite make sense to me.

It's her decision---ultimately she might go with Doria or just walk alone.

As long as it happens. Dear God, two more days of waiting...........

Well said. I would personally like to see Prince Charles step in as a show of complete support and welcome but I have a feeling Meghan will have her mother as her escort, which will be lovely to see.

I believe KP said, at the last briefing, that the last we'd see the couple for the day would be when they leave from Windsor Castle to Frogmore House.

Well, tomorrow we’ll probably see Meghan and Doria arrive at their hotel. We will probably see William and Harry arrive at theirs.

Yea, I think that ship has sailed. Especially for this wedding.

I get the traditional view in the gesture of “giving away” the bride, however, IF Prince Charles were to escort her think it would could it also be viewed as “presenting” Meghan in matrimony to his son with his full support and approval.

Whether it’s her mother or Prince Charles, it’s going to be a bittersweet and touching moment.

Photos from the wedding rehearsal -

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry look relaxed as they leave Windsor Castle | Daily Mail Online


Meghan has spoken, saying her father wil not be at the wedding.

Charles and Camilla have had tea with Meghan's mother, who has now also met William, Catherine and the children.

Ms Ragland is currently staying at Kensington Palace and is due to met the Queen with Harry and Meghan.

(Sorry if this has already been posted - couldn't see it anywhere.)

She plays Fat Amy in a series of movies about a college singing group. She's hysterically funny.

Fat Amy from the Pitch Perfect trilogy. She’s Australian.

Yes, I remember now. The movie with Anna Kendrick. I didn't know her name was "Rebel Wilson".

It looks to me that she was just making a joke though. I don't think she's been actually invited to the wedding.

The whole 'giving her away' is just a nice tradition now. Everyone understands a woman is no longer property etc.

I think Charles stepping in to do it would be a lovely public show of support if Doria doesn't go down with her.

I know it's been said to be comfortable but the one thing I'm not loving about this wedding is the carriage. It just looks so plain...almost dare I say 'cheap' with the thatched door area and the lack of ornate detailing so commonly found on royal carriages/coaches.

Good grief, it looks like a leftover from Queen Victoria's funeral!

Exactly Gawin. It's very sombre and plain.

It looks like the everyday mode of transport for a minor Lord or squire not the marital carriage of a senior Prince. Oh well...

I thought the same one that William and Catherine used would be better. However, the Ascot Barouches are higher and I think, better sprung which, when you are travelling on a private road (the long walk) will not bounce you out of the carriage.

As far as people getting a good view of the Bridal Couple, it is definitely the best bet. Think of the Carriage Processions at Royal Ascot every year.
