Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Request 'Understanding and Respect' for Thomas Markle

16 May 2018

A global audience will be watching when Prince Harry weds his US fiancee Meghan Markle on Saturday, but most Britons don't care much, a YouGov poll said on Monday. The statement did not confirm or deny speculation surrounding his attendance.

Thomas Markle dropped his bombsehll with just five days to go before the royal wedding.

A spokeswoman for the prince declined to comment directly on the report or to say whether the statement meant Markle's father would be at the wedding.

However, according to showbiz website TMZ, he has now decided not to travel to the ceremony on Saturday because he does not want to embarrass the royal family or Meghan.

In fact, he won't be going to the wedding at all, telling TMZ him that he recently suffered a heart attack.

It follows reports in the Daily Mail on Sunday that Ms Markle's father staged pictures for a paparazzi photographer.

Harry's Communications Secretary told reporters last week that both parents would fly over from the United States this week and would play important roles on the couple's big day.

The reports of a possible no-show by Markle's father were splashed across the front pages of several British newspapers on Tuesday.

BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said he understood Ms Markle, 36, was distressed and concerned for the wellbeing of her father, who has been described as a rather shy and reclusive figure.

Samantha, who has not spoken to her sister since 2015, said she had "no idea" if her father was paid but added "it would have been a pittance". "It was not for money".

He told TMZ that he won't be flying to the United Kingdom for the Windsor ceremony after having a heart attack six days ago.

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.

He is reported to have said that he did not want to cause his daughter embarrassment by attending the wedding.
