Meghan Markle's Dad Not Attending Royal Wedding

Meghan Markle's Dad Not Attending Royal Wedding

He said he did it to "rehabilitate" his image but had been left looking "stupid and hammy" - and would not be travelling to the United Kingdom to give her away in order to spare her further embarrassment. She said reporters had also harassed him at his home and that he recently suffered a heart attack.

However, as per latest reports in an worldwide magazine, Thomas has now dropped out of the wedding.

Kensington Palace would not comment further.

According to the Mail, the photos in the internet cafe were taken on March 27, and the visit to the party goods shop was photographed the day before.

Markle's reported decision comes after sensational claims he collaborated with the paparazzi to stage photographs before his daughter's wedding.

Now, Thomas has backed out of the event, telling TMZ that he has decided not to walk Meghan down the aisle because he didn't want to embarrass his daughter or the Royal family. She obviously wants her dad there.

A pal of the Prince's told the Daily Mail: "The couple have been doing everything they can to help him".

They later divorced in 1987, but Meghan remembers how her parents "crafted the world around me to make me feel like I wasn't different but special".

Meghan Markle's father says he won't attend his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry after he posed for embarrassing photos in exchange for payment from a paparazzi agency.

Markle, 33, is set to marry Prince Harry Saturday at Windsor Castle, and her hometown is particularly excited about this wedding. We truly won't know until Saturday if Thomas will be there-or who will walk Meghan down the aisle.

May 4, 2018 A statement released from Kensington Palace confirms Thomas will be walking his daughter down the aisle.

Thomas, who retired to Rosarito, Mexico, was supposed to be flying to London this week to meet the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, Wills and Kate at a lunch ahead of the ceremony. Instead, he wanted to "rehabilitate" his image after pictures had been published of him looking overweight and dishevelled.

Even the usually indefatigable British tabloids, not to mention their American counterparts, have failed to reach Markle to get him on the record about why he might miss a family wedding he himself has labeled "historic".

Megan's half-sister Samantha Markle has since taken responsibility for the staged paparazzi photos through Twitter and in a TV interview, saying that the goal was "positive photos" of her father and not profit. Her father, Thomas Markle, went to the hospital for chest pain after dropping out of the royal wedding.

She is not on the wedding guest list. Separate photos also emerged of Mr Markle being measured for a wedding suit and also exercising in a park.
