With the Royal Wedding just a day away (May 19, guys!), it’s truly all some people can talk about. It doesn’t help that, well, there sure is a lot to talk about, especially regarding Meghan Markle. Is it just me, or does she seem to be followed by a whole lot of drama?

Of course, it’s not her fault. The tabloids have been all over her family, especially her father, who decided he wouldn’t be attending the wedding because of “health issues” soon after it was revealed he’d set up pictures with paparazzi. It led many people to wonder: who’s going to walk Meghan Markle down the aisle if her father isn’t there?

Well, we finally have our answer, and it’s probably the sweetest alternative we could’ve asked for. A royal update from the Kensington Palace Twitter revealed that Harry’s father, Prince Charles, would give Markle away on her big day.

The update read:

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.

Honestly, I think this is the best choice Markle and her new family could’ve made. I’m so glad things are finally starting to fall into place for the new American princess! Thought Catalog Logo Mark
