Whatever your opinion on Thomas may be, there's no denying that this unexpected turn of events proves one simple fact - all families are complex, dysfunctional and fragile in their own unique way.

Even a small-scale family wedding is enough to bring out intense family dynamics (shout out to my stepmum for having a meltdown over not being mentioned in my sister's wedding speeches), so spare a thought for the Markle clan who've had to let this play out on the world's stage. We can't even imagine the pressure Meghan and her father Thomas must be under.

But with Thomas officially out, who will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle at the Royal Wedding? We explore the bride-to-be's options...

Thomas has since announced he won ’ t attend the wedding, which leaves the most anticipated event of the year with a very important question: Who will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle ?

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland

The most likely option will of course be Meghan Markle's beloved mother, Doria Ragland.

Throughout her life and indeed her whirlwind romance with Prince Harry, the 61-year-old yoga instructor has been an incredible pillar of strength, stability and support to Meghan.

While this wedding is a ground-breaking event for the royal family, the main question is would The Queen approve such a bold break with tradition and allow Doria to walk her daughter down the aisle of St George's Chapel?

However, The Queen is never one to be underestimated and is incredibly in touch with the times. Her Majesty would be no doubt be sympathetic towards Meghan and wanting to help the bride in this hour of need.

Meghan Markle planned to have her father Thomas Markle Sr. walk her down the aisle at her wedding to Prince Harry this weekend. Then everything changed. Earlier this week, Thomas admitted to staging paparazzi photographs of himself in order to improve his public image.

Meghan Markle is unlike any other royal family member we've ever seen before and as a proud feminist and fighter for gender equality, we seriously wouldn't be surprised if the 36-year-old simply got on with the show and walked herself down the damn aisle.

It is, after all, her second wedding and would be the ultimate way to silence all the drama as she proves just how independent and strong she is.

"What's interesting is, I hear a lot of people - when speaking about girls and women empowerment - you'll often hear people say, 'well, you're helping women finding their voices and I fundamentally disagree with that,'" Meghan explained at the Royal Forum in February.

"Women don't need to find a voice, they have a voice, and they need to feel empowered to use it, and people need to be encouraged to listen."
