Kensington Palace has officially announced that the beautiful bride-to-be will be walked down the aisle by Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles. The statement confirmed that the 69-year-old royal will be doing the honours after it was revealed by TMZ that Thomas Markle, the Suits alum’s father, won’t be making it to the wedding due to health issues.

The statement reads: “Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel on her Wedding Day. The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way.”

It’s understood that the 36-year-old will walk the first part of the aisle with her six bridesmaids, four pageboys and the Dean of Windsor, as was always planned, and Charles will then meet her at the start of the Quire.
