TURNS out it wasn't just the general public that were waiting with bated breath about Meghan Markle's family drama ahead of the royal wedding.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and stepmother to Markle's new husband Prince Harry, admitted the royal family wasn't sure "what would happen next" with Markle's family leading up to the May 19 wedding, the New York Post reports.

"We all wondered whatever would happen next and then everything went right," Prince Charles' wife told 5 News on Wednesday, according to People.

She added, "It was such a lovely day. Just everything went right."

The newly-minted Duchess of Sussex had a lot of family drama to handle in the weeks leading up to her wedding.

Just two days before she was set to walk down the aisle, her father, Thomas Markle, said he would not attend due to health issues so Prince Charles stepped in to escort Markle.

Markle's half-siblings also gave the former actor a lot to handle as they spoke out against their sister before her big day.

Samantha Grant, Markle's older half-sister, admitted to staging paid paparazzi photos of their father in Mexico.

She also is penning a tell-all about the new member of the royal family reportedly titled, The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister.
