There is nothing sweet about this.
Nnnnnooooo! Come on :) She's amazing! And I think it was really the only solution. It makes her more part of the family and her dad just couldn't do it anymore

No matter...you're here now. The next 24 hours will be PACKED so grab some snacks and start reading and typing away. There's still time to speculate and a LOT of details to discuss tomorrow.

I’m one of the few that’s disappointed that Doria isn’t walking her down the aisle (or at least someone from her mom’s side of the family). But it’s her wedding and she can have whoever she wants by her side.

Yes, I got that I just thought it was a bit superstitious and speculative.

I see where youíre coming from. Iím thinking there really isnít that much to Meghanís family beyond Doria, and Iím hoping that this decision is partially because Doria isnít comfortable doing it herself.

Thanks so much

I'm SO EXCITED for this wedding! I'll have to run to the shops and get some chocolate and sweets to keep me going

Not even 50 years ago this would have been strictly impossible. How times have changed.

Well, that would be a silly superstition, wouldn't it ?

In statistical science, the minimum probability of error decision is to choose the most likely hypothesis. Our belief about the likelihood of a hypothesis changes, however, as new information (i.e. observations or, broadly speaking, "data") becomes available. In mathematics, that is akin to computing what is called "posterior probabilities", normally done using Bayes' law. When no new information is available, decisions are made based on "a priori probabilities" also called "prior probabilities". In that case, if statistically more marriages nowadays ended up in divorce than lasted, the best guess about a couple we don't know anything else about (in the sense of getting the lowest probability of error across a succession of multiple such guesses) would actually be that they would eventually divorce.

In Harry and Meghan's case however, we already now more about their relationship, so our belief about the likelihood of their marriage being successful has already changed from simple prior probabilities.

Camilla Tominey said on Today that the wedding "will have soul". The specifics are embargoed until later today. So that's one more announcement we can expect.

After the chaos that was this week with her father, I wouldn't be surprised if Doria was uncomfortable. She wasn't initially doing it so her being tossed into that could have been too much for her. I mean I wanted it to happen but that doesn't mean she was into the idea. It is a lot to ask of someone at the last minute. At least Charles is used to it.

The HEIGHT of superstitious absurdity.. Perhaps ONLY 'unmarried's', and happily FIRST married types should be allowed to attend ??

Definitely! It would have been cool to see Doria walking her, but it must have been sooo much pressure. I can definitely understand her. And it's such a lovely thing to see - her walking down the isle with her new father-in-law. I bet Meghan's super sad she won't be able to be walked by her dad, as she's often said she's "a daddy's girl."

This! Doria seems like a very low-key woman. Perhaps for many reasons she isn't comfortable with being on that level of attention. She might not want the commentary on her daughter's walk down the aisle to be an inopportune time for social commentary on race etc. I am also disappointed it is not she who will walk with Meghan but pretty sure there is a very good reason beyond sticking to tradition. I think it really should have been her from the start, not Tom Sr. But anyway, the Prince of Wales doing it instead is a firm statement of support from the BRF, so well done still.

Did Meghan ask Charles or did he offer it?
Isn't William Harry's best man?

On an emotional level I understand why having Doria escort Meghan would have been appealing, but from a visual perspective I think it would not have been good. Whatever Doria is wearing, hat and dress, it was chosen with the idea that she was going to be the MOB, not going to be escorting her daughter up the aisle. Depending on color and style (especially the style of the hat) I could easily imagine that she might end up overshadowing or distracting from Meghan. And, as they say in the marketing world, that would not be good optics.

So sentimentally, I get the appeal of the Doria idea, but Charles is a much better choice.

Doria not being comfortable with it, makes sense. I believe Meghan has some nephews and uncles (from her maternal side), but maybe she’s not close to them. I don’t know, I’m just not as moved as others about Prince Charles walking with her. It just would have been nice to have someone that really knew Meghan, walk with her into her new life.

Nothing really to worry about at all. Last I heard, Karma was very busy going out to lunch elsewhere.

I don't believe in superstition, life is to be lived, faults and all. Mistakes are to be made and learned from. There is no such thing as perfect, just imperfect people striving to live, learn and be better people.

Meghan and Harry are just people. I hope they have a happy wedding and meaningful lives together.

It seems she is walking part way by herself and Charles is mainly escorting her part of the way.
