The wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is only an hour away. The English city of Windsor made all the preparations for the royal wedding on Friday last, marked by the announcement.
An unusual incident took place in marriage arrangement as it would be Prince Charles who would accompany Megan Merkle to the altar instead of her father.
"The Prince of Wales is delighted to receive Miss Meghan Markle in the royal family in this way," Kensington Palace said in a statement, a day after the actress confirmed that her father, Thomas Markle, will not be able to attend to the royal wedding due to health problems.
According to the statement, it was the bride who offered the privilege to her father-in-law. "Miss Meghan Markle asked Her Royal Highness the Prince of Wales to accompany her to the altar of St George`s Church" at Windsor Castle, the statement says.
However, it was speculated that it would be the mother of the bride, the Californian Doria Ragland, who would accompany her daughter.
Prince Harry, 33, will marry 36-year-old Meghan Markle, a star of the TV series "Suits," in the 15th-century St. George`s Chapel at Windsor Castle, in a ceremony that begins at 12: 00 pm (GMT + 1) on Saturday.
Meghan Markle`s mother arrived early in the afternoon at Windsor Castle to meet her consort, Elizabeth II, and have tea.
This 61-year-old yoga teacher and social worker already met Prince Charles on Thursday and Prince Harry`s brother, Prince William.
In addition, with the aim of honoring the memory of his mother, Diana of Wales, Prince Harry has chosen his aunt Lady Jane Fellowes for an outstanding role during the ceremony in which he will read a fragment of the Song of Songs, one of the biblical texts.
Finally, the groom`s grandfather, Felipe de Edimburgo, 96, who is recovering from a hip transplant, will attend the royal wedding.
People from different corners of the world will keep an eye on this marriage ceremony. On the streets of Windsor, people from last night have been trying to take the best viewing spots.
