Duchess Camilla Reveals What Royals Thought About Meghan Markle’s Pre-Wedding Family Drama

Even the Royals were concerned about Meghan Markle’s family drama.

While talking to 5 News reporters in London on Wednesday, May 23, Duchess Camilla opened up about Meghan and Prince Harry’s royal wedding and the drama-filled days before their big day.

“It was such a lovely day. Just everything went right,” she said of the ceremony. “We all wondered whatever would happen next and then everything went right.”

Camilla’s last sentiment seemed to be in reference to Meghan’s family drama that went down ahead of her and Harry’s “I do's.”

Days before the royal wedding, the former Suits actress’ dad, Thomas Markle, told outlets he would no longer be walking his daughter down the aisle due to his embarrassment following his photo scandal. (Six days before the wedding news broke he staged paparazzi photos of himself, which Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, took responsibly for. She said she thought it would benefit both her father and the royal family.)

While he initially sited the photo scandal as the cause of his decision not to attend Meghan’s wedding, he later said he suffered a heart attack days before, and his health was what caused him to back out.

If that wasn’t enough drama, Thomas backtracked days later, saying he would, in fact, be attending his daughter’s wedding to walk her down the aisle, despite his health concerns. However, within hours of that announcement, he was back in the hospital for heart-related issues and confirmed he would no longer be attending.

Prince Charles ultimately walked Meghan down the aisle, after her request.

Despite the drama, Camilla said, “Everything was just perfect, including the weather, which couldn’t have been better. It was a beautiful day … It’s nice to have something that is uplifting rather than depressing.
