Prince Charles will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle on Saturday when she marries Prince Harry, Kensington Palace has said.
Ms. Markle’s father, Thomas, is unable to attend the wedding, after undergoing heart surgery.
The Prince of Wales was “pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to the Royal Family in this way”, the palace added.
Prince Harry’s grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, will also attend the wedding, Buckingham Palace confirmed.
Prince Philip, age 96, has been recovering from a hip operation.
Ms. Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, will take her daughter to the wedding at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor.
Ms. Ragland will meet the Queen for the first time at Windsor Castle later, accompanied by Meghan, age 36, and Prince Harry, age 33.
She has already been introduced to Prince Charles and Prince William.
