Breaking news from Buckingham Palace today is that Captain James Hewitt will be walking Royal bride-to-be Meghan Markle down the aisle. The world’s media has reported that Ms Markle’s father, Thomas, will not be able to walk her down the aisle at the Royal wedding this weekend because of ill health.
Palace spokesperson, Sir Reginald Teasmade III, has announced that Captain Hewitt will fill the void left by Mr Markle’s absence.
“Prince Harry and Ms Markle were desperate that at least one of their parents would be present at their wedding. With Mr Markle no longer able to fulfill the role, Prince Harry’s natural father was more than happy to step into the breach and provide a parental presence for the happy day.”
Prince Harry was chuffed with the addition of Captain Hewitt to the festivities. “One’s wedding should be a family occasion so it’s smashing that at least one of our Dads can be there for us.”
Prince Charles was unavailable for comment.
