Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle, has apparently told TMZ that he will not be attending the royal wedding, following a recent heart attack and his controversial decision to stage a number of paparazzi photos of himself. TMZ reported that Thomas has QUOTE, “now decided not to go because he doesn’t want to embarrass the Royal Family or his daughter.”
A source told Entertainment Tonight that Meghan is QUOTE, “devastated” by her dad’s decision, adding QUOTE, “This was his decision entirely. Meghan would still like him to come.”
As for his paparazzi photo controversy, Thomas explained to TMZ that he’d staged some pictures of himself preparing for the Royal Wedding. In the shots, he’s seen reading a book about Great Britain and looking at some pictures of Meghan and Harry on a computer at an internet cafe. Thomas admitted that he sold the photos to paparazzi, but assured TMZ that he QUOTE, “meant no harm to Meghan or the Royal Family” with the deal.
Despite the photos, which Thomas himself called “stupid”, Meghan’s dad has another reason to skip out on the Royal Wedding: He suffered a heart attack almost a week ago. According to TMZ, Thomas is now back in the hospital after experiencing serious chest pains, where doctors are performing tests on him. Thomas told the outlet that his heart was QUOTE, “seriously damaged” after the heart attack.
So cut to today, and now Thomas is telling TMZ that Meghan has assured him she harbors no bad feelings toward him for the paparazzi photos, and he also said that Meghan texted him telling him she loved him and was worried about his health.
Those messages apparently prompted Mr. Markle to change his mind about skipping the wedding, because he told TMZ that he now wants to make the trek to England and walk his daughter down the aisle, as he was originally scheduled to, despite his current health condition. He told the outlet QUOTE, “I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle…Of course I’d walk her down the aisle. This is a historic moment. I’d like to be a part of history.”
Okay, but if Thomas does NOT end up attending the Royal Wedding, then who will walk Meghan down the aisle? It’s been reported that Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland, who is divorced from Thomas Markle, is a front-runner for the job. Doria is expected to attend and participate in the wedding, but only time will tell if she or someone else will have to take Thomas’s place in walking Meghan down the aisle.
Okay guys now I wanna hear what you think of all this — do you think Meghan’s dad will make it to the wedding, or do you think he should hang back because of his health situation? And if he isn’t able to attend, who do you think should walk Meghan down the aisle? Her mom? Another relative? Prince William? Sound off with your answers in the comments below!
