11 Ways Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Wedding Made History
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex broke tradition in a number of ways when they became husband and wife.
Meghan’s father did not escort her down the aisle
Meghan Markle was certainly not afraid to do her wedding her own way. She had every intention of having her father, Thomas Markle, walk her down the aisle, but because of poor health, he was unable to attend the royal wedding. Instead, Prince Charles—Harry’s father—escorted Meghan to the altar. She walked down the aisle unescorted until she reached the Quire (where the main royal guests were seated), and Prince Charles joined her there. In the past, royal brides have sometimes chosen someone other than their fathers to walk them down the aisle, but walking the first part solo is definitely a first. Don’t miss these other tiny details you probably missed at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.
