After a week of back-and-forth, it’s finally official: Meghan Markle’s dad will be not attending his daughter’s royal wedding on Saturday, which means he obviously won’t be walking her down the aisle. So, in the absence of her father, the groom’s husband is stepping in.

The Kensington Palace announced this morning that Prince Charles will take the reigns of lead escort, sort of. “The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms Markle to The Royal Family in this way,” the tweet says. While the Twitter announcement by Kensington Palace says that Prince Charles will walk Meghan down the aisle, CNN reports something a little different.
