Iím so pleased itís Prince Charles. It really makes a statement. I get the impression that of course Doria wants to be involved in her daughters special day she would rather stay out of the lime light as much as possible.

The Duke of Edinburgh will be at his grandson’s #royalwedding tomorrow, just weeks after his hip operation, as if there was ever any doubt! #theironduke

IMO Meghan should walk alone or with Harry. She's in her late 30s, on her second marriage, out of the house for many years and already living with Harry. She doesn't need anyone to give her away.
As has been pointed out, Charles isn't giving her away. He's accompanying her down the aisle. I wasn't most keen on the idea but I will take it. Seems a nice balance actually with Meghan walking halfway with her bridesmaids and pageboys.

Wasn't at all a fan of her walking with Harry and I'm so glad that isn't happening. As for Doria, she was my first choice but it's possible she didn't feel comfortable in that role and that's more than understandable.

I bet Prince Philip has been hard at work getting himself fit for this occasion. It's terrific.

That's fantastic news that the DoE will be there up front and center for his grandson's wedding. Can't keep a good man down.

I'm not fixed at the idea that she is being given away. You can call it giving away or escorting, but it still looks the same.
For me Meghan and Harry walking together is the best option, but of course I'm used to it. In my country bride and groom walk together (mostly).

So it seems from the report that Meghan will be walking halfway down the aisle by herself with her bridesmaids and page boys, then the PoW will accompany her from the squire to the alter to meet Harry. Seems like a good compromise.

Perhaps Doria was not comfortable with idea of walking down the aisle.

It would have been nice to be her mother but I agree she probably wasn't comfortable doing it.

It's one thing to walk your daughter down the aisle at a family wedding of 70-100 people where you know most of the guests. It's a whole different level of anxiety walking your daughter down the aisle towards a British Prince in front of 100's of people while being filmed by TV cameras!!

Nice news about PoW walking Meghan down the aisle. I'm absolutely sure, that Meghan talked with Doria, and Doria wasn't comfortable with all the attention. And it's also a taunting long walk to do all on your own. And it shows how well Meghan is part of the family. I love it!

I have been wanting and waiting for some great news about Harry and Meghan and this is it.......I am delighted with the arrangement and it shows the strong support for Meghan coming into the royal family.

This is not about her being given away, this is about how she and Harry are doing *their* wedding under the circumstances of her father being in a *hospital* in America. Just perfect in every way....now let's all get ready for this wedding so we can all enjoy it.....

I'm sure Prince Charles is very happy to do this for Meghan. However, I'm surprised it's not her mother. Doria is more than capable of walking with her daughter, not to mention they have a close blond.

But whatever, it's not my wedding and therefore not my choice either.

Wonderful and a great compromise IMO! Prince Charles has more experience in these types of public events. You know....I have to say....I was never really been a fan of Prince Charles or Camilla for that matter. But the way he and Camilla have supported Harry and Meghan...I am beginning to change my viiew!

I think her mom probably felt uncomfortable in the spotlight. While for months many speculated that it would be her mother who walks her down the aisle, I don't think that was the case inside KP. I think it was always supposed to be the dad, however, I think the pressure got to him.

Okay...can someone help me envision this?

Meghan walking "alone" (with ten children trailing!) part of the way and then when she approaches the Quire Charles will offer his arm and escort her to the altar. Very nice.

And the children....do the older four continue on while the smallest ones are whisked into a holding cell until the ceremony is over?

With a two year old? I hope so.

I also wondered about all those children for I hope someone is going to corral them into not running wild ......I can see it now, cute, gorgeous children all dressed in their finery seeing all the decorations, the lights, the people and off they go....are there enough adults in the wedding to catch each child before they run out the door..........

It doesn’t make sense for Prince Charles to give Meghan away since she is not part of his family yet and he has no relation to the bride. He could walk her down the aisle, but her mother should give her away.

It is very sad really that Ms Markle can’t.find or trust a family member to give her away and a sign that she is really making a clear break with her past life.

From all that I have read and seen of Meghan, it seems to me that she makes strong decisions in her life to do what is best for her. I really don't think this woman would feel that she needs to be *given away* as she is a very independent intelligent woman who can do things her way and now with Harry they make the decisions together on how to proceed with *their* wedding.... no woman I know of today feels like she is so insecure that she has to be given away in her wedding.....this is about their decisions only
