Camilla breaks silence on Meghan Markle's family drama ahead of royal wedding


We now know how some of the British royal family reacted to Meghan Markle's family drama that unfolded ahead of last weekend's royal wedding.

While speaking with reporters at 5 News on Wednesday, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, seemingly spoke out about the endless headlines, confusion and drama around whether or not Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, would attend the royal wedding to walk her down the aisle.

"It was such a lovely day," Camilla said. "Just everything went right. We all wondered whatever would happen next and then everything went right."

Duchess Camilla also called the entire wedding "uplifting," but it was her allusion to the constant drama around Thomas that is now making headlines.

Prince Charles walked Meghan down the aisle while her mother, Doria Ragland, happily looked on from inside St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
