Kensington Palace palace said Ms Markle had asked her future father-in-law to accompany her as she makes her way to the altar after her father, Thomas Markle, was forced to pull out in a dramatic upset just two days before the wedding.
After arriving with her mother, Doria Ragland, Ms Markle will walk up the Nave of St George’s Chapel – the first part of the church – on her own in front of a global television audience of millions.
She will be followed by her six bridesmaids and four pageboys including Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Ms Markle will then be accompanied by Charles through the Quire, which begins in the middle of the chapel. However, the ceremony will omit the traditional moment of “giving away”.
Prince Harry and Ms Markle spent their last night as an unmarried couple in separate luxury hotels – and will only meet again at the altar today at a flamboyant Royal wedding.
