Meghan Markle's Dad Not Attending Royal Wedding After Suffering Heart Attack

Meghan Markle's Dad Not Attending Royal Wedding After Suffering Heart Attack

A source told the Daily Express that Harry's grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philips are "very angry" with Thomas, and are holding a meeting with the palace's communication office to discuss his involvement - if any - in the wedding.

He said he did not want to embarrass either his daughter or the Royals in the wake of his confession.

But after suffering a heart attack last week, Thomas said his doctors say he has a "seriously damaged" heart. The reason for opting out of the royal wedding as stated by Thomas was that he suffered from a heart attack, a week ago.

May 15 - Thomas Markle says he will attend the royal wedding.

CNN has reached out to Thomas Markle for comment over phone and over email but has yet to receive an answer. He told TMZ he didn't primarily do it for the money; the Mail on Sunday reported that the photos were sold to outlets worldwide and netted $135,000.

She credits her dad for inspiring her interest in acting and for supporting her when she was auditioning for roles.

"I have to say I am entirely the culprit", Samantha said during her appearance on United Kingdom talk show Loose Women Monday. The concern for him is real and genuine.

Kensington Palace issued a statement calling for "understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this hard situation". Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Monday night issued a statement asking for "understanding and respect" for Thomas Markle. Thomas Markle would walk his daughter down the aisle and her mother would drive with her daughter to the chapel.

Before Markle Sr admitted to staging the paparazzi shots, Buckingham Palace released a statement telling the media to back off.

He said he had agreed to the pictures because he hoped they would improve his image as previous paparazzi snaps had shown him buying beer and looking dishevelled, TMZ said. The photos show him reading book about the United Kingdom and getting ready for the wedding.

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare to tie the knot, we'll dig in to all aspects of their nuptials because over-the-top interest in other people's private lives is a thing we're totally about.

Earlier today, the estranged controversial half-sister of Meghan Markle took responsibility for the "staged" paparazzi photos of her father.

Meghan's friend Bonnie Hammer, who hired the actress to star in Suits, says the 36-year-old is a naturally warm person.

She is not on the wedding guest list. She will be the first biracial woman - Markle's mother is black, and her father is white - to marry into the British monarchy. "The media was unfairly making him look bad so I suggested he do positive photos for his benefit and the benefit of the royal family".

Thomas Markle suffered an apparent heart attack last week and it is claimed he will undergo surgery in the U.S. on Wednesday morning, meaning he will miss his daughter's marriage to Prince Harry on Saturday.

None of them were invited to the wedding. According to Us Weekly, Meghan's mother Doria Ragland has quit her job at a mental health clinic in Los Angeles as she focuses on a new career endeavor.
