Will Meghan Markle's father skip the royal wedding?

But how did we get into this situation?

In a statement, Kensington Palace neither confirmed nor denied that was the case.

All about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! The Telegraph reported that Tracy Dooley, the wife of Thomas Markle Jr., arrived at London Heathrow Airport with sons Tyler, 25, and Thomas, 26 on Tuesday.

Kensington Palace would not comment further.

Mr Markle was set to walk Meghan down the aisle during the church ceremony, and Ragland plans to ride to the chapel with her daughter.

Thomas Markle and Ragland divorced when their daughter was 6-years-old, but they both played an active role raising her. Apparently spending 20 minutes on the computer reading news stories about the pair, the photographs were later distributed to global media.

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. All in all, a cute story about an excited father ready to see his daughter married.

May 13, 2018 The Daily Mail accused Thomas of staging photographs: cue, madness.

She also said she did not harbour any ill feelings about the paparazzi photos it was revealed he staged on Monday.

Mr Markle said Meghan has tried to contact him, but has hasn't spoken to her on the phone.

"Harry and Meghan's relationship started across the Atlantic so it seemed fitting for all of us to take-off to Toronto on their special day", Megan Horsley, British Airways Customer Service Manager, added in the press release.

The controversy surrounds pictures of Mr Markle, which were published earlier this month in a number of newspapers showing him in a series of wedding related activities - apparently unaware he was being photographed.

Since he retired, he has been living in Mexico. He also said he had suffered a heart attack a week ago.

"I like to think he was drawn to her sweet eyes and her Afro, plus their shared love of antiques", wrote Meghan in an essay for ELLE UK on being mixed race.

"I have to say I am entirely the culprit. I said, 'Really you need to show the world you are getting in shape and doing great, healthy things.' So I suggested it". There's a lot of scrutiny that it was money motivated, it was not.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Monday night issued a statement asking for "understanding and respect" for Thomas Markle.

"She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation".

But he reportedly decided not to attend the May 19 nuptials because he "doesn't want to embarrass the Royal Family or his daughter".
