Since they ostensibly represent the public, I guess they will refer to him colloquially as Harry.

If not Doria then Charles. No way Prince Phillip will be up to that long walk.

The special thing about the Ascot Landau is that it is higher than the other which means many more people will be able to see Harry and Meghan.

As to the walk up the aisle, whatever makes Meghan feel most comfortable. But please, please, don't let her wear a blusher of any kind. A terrific tiara, appropriate veil and her head held high. Having a positively beautific smile on her face wouldn't be amiss.

The media will refer to him by what is easiest for them, and which most of their viewers will pay attention to- Prince Harry.

The ceremony is another matter. It will be Henry and Rachel.

I wonder if the commentators will occasionally repeat: "Yes, folks, Rachel. Rachel not as in her character in SUITS but 'Rachel Rachel,' her real name. In case you don't know, she has the same first name as her famous character."

Harry and Meghan walking down the aisle would certainly be something special.

I hope and think it will be her mother, Doria. Out of all the people attending, she's closest to her mom.

I myself had both my parents with me and I've been married 33 years (married in 1985, the year after Harry was born). I don't think to have your mom with you is that unusual at all and I don't see why anybody would see it as an issue.

Meghan will have made the choice that feels right for her that we will see on Saturday. :)

I am firmly #TeamDoria and have been since the get go.

BUT, I like the idea of Harry meeting Meghan at the chapel entrance, up the stairs though so we still get the anticipation of seeing her walk to him, and for them to walk down together, a lot actually.

Nooo! I'm not really a traditionalist but one of the things I've really been anticipating is the moment Harry sees his bride for the first time, as she meets him at the end of the aisle. I'd rather see Charles walk her than to have this moment taken away. Sorry.

Re: Doria walking her, I am not sure how that would be cliche. Quite the opposite, actually.

Since we have at times discussed the incredible negativity vibe this wedding brings out in a lot of people (especially two people we all know about)-------I think it only fair to link this as an example of the inexplicable hatred:

Amy Schumer says royal wedding is going to 'suck,' compares day to Westminster Dog Show | Fox News

Quote:
Comedian Amy Schumer said Thursday she thinks Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding is going to “suck” and likened the royal event to the Westminster Dog Show.
Schumer, 36, said on “Fitzy and Wippa,” an Australian radio show, that she felt bad for Markle and the pressure she must be under, The Independent reported.
Quote:
“This poor girl. Your wedding, everyone says it’s your day. It’s YOUR day. She’s like, no it’s not. She has to meet all these foreign dignitaries she’s never met before, there’s so much pressure ... can you imagine having a worse wedding?” Schumer said.
“That would suck. Her girls from high school aren’t going to be there. It’s like a parade, it’s like Westminster Dog Show,” she continued.
Quote:
The “I Feel Pretty” star told the hosts of the radio show that her wedding to Chris Fischer in February was wonderful because “my friends were high and drunk.”

Glad she has the gift of telepathy to know what Meghan is thinking and feeling. Meanwhile, what is wrong with some folks that they want this wedding to be ruined?

It's not just most of the Markles.

Is there envy here or what? Racism? Jealousy?

Why can't they just be glad something wonderful is happening?

I don't understand people sometimes. Anyway, going to bed. Good night, folks.

I was just joking when I said Phillip should do it. I imagined him getting tired of the drama and kicking people out the way, saying "I got this" and dropping a microphone.

I'm torn. I would love Doria to walk her down the aisle because Doria is closest to her and it would be a lovely moment. But another part of me would like to see Charles do it.

If Wendell Pierce is invited and he and Meghan are very close then that would be cool - or even her tv husband would be super cute (but maybe too Hollywood)...

I'm back to Doria or Prince Charles. #1 pick would be Doria, though I'm struggling a bit with the optics and Doria's dress and what if the color looks odd with Meghan's dress, etc...

I'm probably overthinking it.

I do know the one thing I don't want to see is Meghan walking alone. It would just be really hard to watch and I don't want to think of her as alone.

Oops, took too long to type and the page rolled over :( I was referencing fashionmaven’s comments
:I’m with you on the clashing dresses, it offends me aesthetically. I would not have wanted to walk a daughter down the aisle. If I were in the position of walking some one down the aisle my choice of attire would be far different and more somber so as not to detract from the bride, than the traditional joyous mother of the bride outfit. My own father died when I was 5, I had the option of a step father I wasn’t especially fond of and an Uncle, I opted for the step dad and ironically that act improved our relationship as adults.
Charles is a charming man and has no doubt grown to know his future daughter in law well, who better to support Meghan as she formally transitions into the Royal family? He certainly would be a calming influence as she arrives at the church and walks down the aisle.

I'm leaning towards Harry and Meghan walk down together at this point. I think it'd be very sweet. I think Harry should wait for her at the top of the stairs. Honestly, that walk towards him would actually be a lot nicer. It's just be two of them without all the other guests there.

Amy Schumer who? No one who will have any significance in history because they will do nothing of significance other then putting others down that are and will be significant.

Moving on...

Who better? Maybe someone who has known Meghan for more then a year.

The point of having someone to walk you down the aisle is not to 'give you away' like some possession to be handed off. But someone who is supporting and leading you. That is why it is usually your father, someone who has guided you in your life, protected you. If your father is unable, another strong man in your life like an Uncle, or a family friend, someone often fills the roll.

How do we know he 'surely would be a calming influence'? We don't know how well they have got to know each other over the past year or so.

It seems more important she has someone she trusts to hold her hand, then some Vain concern the mother's dress is too bright.

I would hate that. It would ruin the entire expectation of the moment he sees her for the first time coming to him as a bride. We would miss that first look and emotion on both of their faces which is what that walk up the aisle is all about.

Not sure I would agree that it's hate... in all likelihood, given as Amy Schumer's just recently gotten married, is promoting a movie, and the wedding of Meghan and Harry is being talked about everyone, it's fairly reasonable to expect that she'd be asked a question about her thoughts on the whole thing while doing an interview. Her reaction is fairly reasonable too - basically "it probably sucks for her that her day isn't actually 'her day' because of the pomp and circumstance of the family she's marrying into". Not hate or jealousy at all.

Not necessarily, we would still see it as she walks up the stairs. It's actually less distracting this way and just the two of them without all the other guests there. And we can see it before as it'll be brighter than inside the chapel.
