I think it will be Doria, or possibly Charles. To be escorted by your future father in law is unusual though not unknown. It happened to me. My fiance's family were Australian, I married in Australia, and my father was in England and couldn't travel.

My only caveat against Charles doing the honours is that there is no precedent in the BRF for that happening and Meghan hardly knows him. At least with Doria we have Queen Victoria walking her two daughters down the aisle.

It's been awhile since I've been here and I have to be honest, I am glad I missed all the debates, re: the drama of the last few days. This week was meant to be one of joy and celebration and I plan on keeping to those themes only.

Both Harry and Meghan look to be glowing today. Loved seeing their smiling faces. Hope we get a few glimpses of them tomorrow as well, along with Doria.

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.
I have similar thoughts. I don't object to Prince Charles walking Meghan down the aisle, it would be a lovely moment no doubt and great PR for the royal family (I am just saying). But I really do think it should be someone close to Meghan, namely Doria. Meghan walking solo is something I'm a little more conflicted about. It could be an empowering moment, yes, but I am not all that keen on seeing her alone in that moment. And I suspect that she would want the support, with this being such a huge moment and all. Whatever the decision, I'll be fine with it, considering none of these are bad options. Indeed, they are all greatly symbolic in their own way.

Although yes, it will be bittersweet for him.



I wouldn't mind, either, ultimately..........like somebody said upthread...it would be like Charles "presenting" Meghan to Harry.
"Son, look what I got you for your birthday!"

It should be someone who Meghan has a bond with. Someone from her family or her own life. Her mother, an Uncle or nephew, a dear friend. Someone who will be her support. Charles is there to support his son, Meghan should have someone to support her, someone that is souly their for her.

I just thought of something--------

Maybe Ashleigh, her niece? A successful lawyer who has lived apart from Samantha and is the inspiration for Rachel on SUITS.

Would send a statement----but I think it would look too "gimmicky." Plus, I don't think her or Christopher her brother are coming.

Anyway back to what we were discussing, I think it would be beautiful if she walked alone but people would harp on how sad and lonely she is. I think Harry would really goat Sam and Charles would piss off Tom Sr. plus make a statement that he supports the relationship. I think a mom walking a daughter down the aisle is cliche and I do not care if everyone here walked their daughter or had their mom walk them; just like some don't like strapless dresses I don't like seeing moms walk their daughter down the aisle.

If she is going to have a woman walk her down the aisle, it would be her mother. Not sure why she would use her niece instead.

Its just traditional to have a male family/friend walk you down, why Doria seems to stick out.

We don't know if any of Doria's family, or Ashleigh and Christopher will attend. None of them have spoken to the press at all. We only know who isn't attending, as they have been complaining.

Perhaps a male friend like Markus. But I am hoping for Doria.

I'll probably get flamed for saying this but I kind of agree about it being cliched and I'm not particularly a fan. I also don't like strapless dresses Xenia...maybe there's a link

Yes, I agree. IF there is going to be a female walking Meghan down the aisle, the most logical choice would be Doria. Fits.

Plus there is precedent, like someone up-thread said. Victoria walked two daughters down the aisle.

I like discussing these options.

Not a fan of Strapless, both parents walking their daughter down the aisle, see thru wedding dresses ...the mom walking the daughter down is okay...but I lean to the more Traditional type of things.

I usually like the traditional as well (one of only things I am traditional about). But when the bride doesn't have a father to give her away (dead or in this case unable) I don't find it 'cliche' to have the mother do it.

So you lean towards Charles, then?

Somebody suggested Phillip in here a couple of days ago but is he in any condition to do that? He had hip replacement surgery 5 weeks ago.

Would he even want to?

I have a question; so is it the general consensus that Markle Sr. had a change of heart after his first interview with TMZ but because of his operation ultimately could not attend anyways, or is that just what was picked up by the media?

On another note, I also saw this on Twitter and thought it was pretty cool.

My top 3 choices to walk Meghan down the aisle...
1. Doria
2. Male relative from the maternal side
3. Male relative from the Markle side who we have never heard of!!!!!!

Pay careful attention on the Royal Wedding day to the broadcasters. Will they refer to the groom as Prince Harry or as Prince Henry?

Prince Harry. When the vows are being said....then we will hear Prince Henry.

There must be a link, because I feel the same way.
