Is it too soon to say that everything is coming up Meghan, and literally in the nick of time?
This isn’t to say that her family has completely disappeared from the picture. Her father reportedly had surgery; her odious half-sister may or may not have invented an automobile accident involving a paparazzo; and the ex -in-law and her kids won’t be offering their tuppenny’s worth on Good Morning Britain.
While convention would have allowed Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland to escort her down the aisle, or Meghan to go it alone, Kensington Palace released a statement today that the Prince of Wales, her future father-in-law, will take her arm tomorrow morning.
Prince Charles has attracted his share of controversy over the years, but I could never think of any reason to contradict him as a parent. I think it’s sweet and fitting that he is walking her down the aisle. It is not a secret that he wanted a daughter of his own, and I believe that if a similar situation had arisen with the Duchess of Cambridge, he would have been there for her, too.
So, now that the wedding rehearsal is done and dusted, and things are calming down, I cannot wait to see the dress. And the cake. And hear Harry’s string of names pronounced with an actor’s polish during the vows.
