15 May 2018

Meghan Markle's father won't be attending her wedding to Prince Harry this week - so who will be giving her away?

Since news that Meghan Markle's father had chosen not to attend his daughter's wedding this weekend, to give her away on her big day - people have been speculating about who would be giving her away.

Well, we might just have an answer!

It's been reported by the Daily Mail that Thomas Markle has "given her mother his blessing to take his place". 

So it's looking likely that Meghan's mother, Doria Radlan, will be taking his place.

Although, it's also been speculated that Princes Charles or William could be set to give Meghan away. Or she could even choose to walk down the aisle herself.

"This is not what she wants. She obviously wants her dad there. And the idea of contemplating him not being there now is not something that she wants to have to do," a friend of Meghan has told the Daily Mail. "She and Prince Harry are begging for people to give him some space. They have been saying this for weeks, while trying to offer him support and help. He is clearly feeling under immense pressure. The concern for him is real and genuine."

Meghan's friend then went on to add, "He is a proud man who wants to be a father and not be taken care of, but it's quite difficult. Everyone needs to pause and think what this is doing to them and, more importantly, to him. It is a really worrying, scary situation. The couple have been doing everything they can to help him."
