Will Meghan Markle's father skip the royal wedding?

Will Meghan Markle's father skip the royal wedding?

"She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation", a Kensington Palace statement said.

He will no longer make the journey to meet his future son-in-law Prince Harry, he said, or keep planned appointments with the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. A British Airways flight from London to Toronto on Saturday, May 19, will have staff only named Meghan, Megan or Harry in honor of the royal wedding.

A global audience will be watching when Prince Harry weds his USA fiancee Meghan Markle on Saturday, but most Britons don't care much, a YouGov poll said on Monday.

Dooley and her sons, who live in OR, previously said they had not seen Markle in 20 years and had not received an invitation to the royal wedding.

Thomas Markle and Ragland divorced when their daughter was 6-years-old, but they both played an active role raising her. Originally, he was supposed to walk Prince Harry's bride down the aisle.

His son told the Daily Mail: "He's pretty happy about Harry and he's extremely proud of her".

Thomas also told TMZ that he had suffered a heart attack a week ago and is experiencing chest pains again in light of the fall out.

Thomas Markle would walk his daughter down the aisle and her mother would drive with her daughter to the chapel.

Earlier, she tweeted to say it had been her idea for Mr Markle to pose for what she described as "positive photos" to try to combat his "bad" portrayal in the press, but said it was not done for money.

Although Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly "very angry" with Thomas over the staged photos, he doesn't think she cares at all.

Ms Markle has two paternal half-siblings, Ms Grant and Thomas Markle Jr.

Since the death of their mother in 1997, Harry and older brother William have remained close to Diana's family, and several members of the Spencers will attend the wedding, including his uncle Earl Spencer, his two aunts Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, and his cousins. (Supplied) Harry and Meghan have have called for understanding.

"It's safe to say I have always been a daddy's girl he taught me how to fish, to appreciate Busby Berkeley films, write thank-you notes, and spend my weekends in Little Tokyo eating chicken teriyaki with vegetable tempura".

Grant denied that her father would apologize for the fake pictures. After he received backlash for staging the paparazzi pictures, Thomas Markle pulled out the wedding, telling TMZ he hadn't heard from his daughter since the photos went viral.
