Prince Charles to give Meghan Markle away at royal wedding

Up until a few days ago, the soon-to-be-royal’s dad was expected to follow tradition and give Markle away to Britain’s Prince Harry, but the bride-to-be on Thursday announced that her father won’t be attending Saturday’s wedding due to health reasons.

So who will step in an fill the important spot on Markle’s side at the ceremony on Saturday? Prince Charles, her future father-in-law and first in line to the British throne.

Thomas Markle, Meghan’s dad, has been steeped in controversy in recent weeks over paparazzi photos that reportedly were meant to stage him as a loving father. It reportedly became clear to him that he wouldn’t be able to travel to Windsor for the wedding earlier this week as he was still en pain following heart surgery.

The ceremony on Saturday begins at noon London time, or 7 a.m. Eastern Time.

The big day is estimated to provide a boost of 1.05 billion pounds, or $1.43 billion, to the U.K. economy, according to consulting firm Brand Finance.
