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

At least Senior can get to see her on television whenever he is recuperating and get to say "That's my girl!!!!!!"

Although yes, it will be bittersweet for him.

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


LaRae
I wouldn't mind, either, ultimately..........like somebody said upthread...it would be like Charles "presenting" Meghan to Harry.

It won't have the top part on it on Saturday and IIRC they have dressed it up before with flowers etc.

Built for Edward VII carriage is over 100 years old.

As great as it would be for her mother to walk her down the aisle, I so hope it is Prince Charles. That would send out a clear message to the Markles and anyone who has trashed Meghan that she is his daughter-in-law now.

Also, I believe she is the daughter of Brian Wilson, an original member of the Beach Boys.

No, those are different Wilsons.

The ones you are talking about make up 2 of the 3 girls in the Group Wilson Phillips.

Rebel is Australian.

Thanks for clearing that up. It must be Carnie Wilson I am thinking of.

Me too...I think it sends out a nice (and strong) message.

So very unofficial poll here but by a quick show of hands who are you expecting/hoping to see walk Meg down the aisle?

a. Doria Ragland
b. The Prince of Wales
c. No one. Meghan will walk alone
d. Someone else (please say who)
e. wild card - M&H walk down the aisle together

Also it would be nice if people give a quick line as to why they chose what they did.

***

I'll go first. My pick would be Charles. Meghan doesn't need anyone to give her away IMO and with Charles presenting her to Harry...well there would be no greater show of approval and support as to her new status within the family.

One thing to remember is that Windsors' streets are much narrower than London's. Also there will be many people lining the route. This is the same landau that was used for Edward and Sophie's carriage ride after their wedding. IMO it is being used because it is much more maneuverable than the others in the Royal Mews.

The carriage ride will be magical.
I expect the top to be off but the only decoration to be the bridal couple and Meghan's bouquet. There were no added flowers restricting the view of Edward and Sophie or Peter and Autumn.

Probably B.
Which is what I think most of us think will happen.

Although E. would be satisfying and innovative for the FRB in a bold way.

You want to know what REALLY, REALLY would be wild?

If Patrick J. Adams gives her away!!!!!!! Mike Ross gives away his screen bride to her real-life husband!!!!!!!!!

Kind of "Rachel" symbolically transferring from one "firm" to "THE FIRM."
Sorry-----could not resist.

The carriage ride will be magical------and heavily guarded. With the possibility of snipers and all.

I vote d and I nominate Mark Dyer, Harry's friend and mentor. He could ESCORT Meghan down the aisle and her mother could still "give her away" if they have that in the ceremony.

Interesting idea------certainly not outside protocol, I would think.

I vote for Doria to walk with her daugher, or a trusted male representaitve of Meghan's family or friends.
I see the walk as a symbol of the joining of two families - one walking to the other as much as the joining of two people, so Prince Charles walking with Meghan would not be the first option.

Meghan walking alone would be best of all but she might like to have a supporter.

Hehe... That's so sneaky and I love it! I've got a mean streak. That's also why I wanted the nieces and nephews to go but not the backstabbing relatives.

Thank you for the laugh and the compliment.

If you REALLY want to push it----how about Meghan's TV dad-----Wendell Pierce?

I can see it now----"Rachel's dad" giving Meghan away to her real-life husband.

LOL.

LOL. Anyway---back to the more pressing topic at hand......who WILL it be?...................

I am thinking of all the dads who are pawing their hoofs to take on this role....Dad no. 1 Barack Obama; Dad no. 2 Brian Mulroney Sr. Dad no. 3 Justin Trudeau
