( CNN) After she is married, Meghan Markle will have no scarcity of royal courtiers offering her assistance and advice.

These armchair courtiers have weighed in over her leader, Thomas Markle, and the uncertainty over whether he was going to give her away; about her deficiency of a maid of honor to help marshal her 10 young bridesmaids and page sons; and, in the latest bout of pre-wedding intervention, her decision that Prince Charles will accompany her down the aisle, rather than her mom, Doria Ragland.

Kensington Palace announced Friday that the heir to the throne will step in to accompany Markle in St. George’s Chapel in Windsor after it was confirmed earlier the coming week that her father is too ill to attend.
