Thomas Markle Snr and his daughter Meghan Markle, in pictures


However, as per latest reports in an global magazine, Thomas has now dropped out of the wedding.

Both Mr. Markle and Kensington Palace had in recent weeks been urging photographers and publications from shooting and sharing photos of Mr. Markle, saying that he has been harassed by paparazzi in recent days.

Meghan Markle attends the Women's Empowerment reception hosted by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting at the Royal Aeronautical Society on April 19, 2018 in London, England. Thomas Markle, 73, seems to have been unprepared for the pressure. Apparently spending 20 minutes on the computer reading news stories about the pair, the photographs were later distributed to global media. She also reportedly told her father that she didn't care about the paparazzi photos.

On Sunday, May 13, The Daily Mail published video that reportedly shows how the photographs were staged.

"Staging those photos, that didn't seem so very bad".

Meghan has previously heaped her father with compliments for investing in her future. Thomas Markle's seeming indecision about whether he would be at the wedding in St. George's Chapel has been mysterious, not least because developments are being filtered through only one media source: TMZ.

"The bad press over my father doing staged photos is my fault".

He was seeking to redress damage to his image by "paparazzi who have photographed him in the most unflattering circumstances", says the website. "The couple have been doing everything they can to help him". In the photos, he was seen buying beer and looking dishevelled and reclusive. He also said he had been hospitalized after suffering a heart attack a week ago. However, because he wanted to attend the wedding, he checked himself out of the hospital.

Sri Lanka night club probed over British rugby players' sudden deaths
The pair's breathing issues were not rugby-related, the club said, but no further details of the fatal incident were provided. Sri Lanka Police said a 26-year-old man had died in hospital at 12:00 local time on Sunday.

"I have to say I am entirely the culprit". We had no idea he would be taken advantage of.

Thomas Markle, who lives in a retirement community just south of the US border in Mexico, told TMZ he's been ambushed by paparazzi who have photographed him in the most unflattering circumstances, including buying beer and looking disheveled.

Meghan has posted messages on social media about her father. "So I suggested it".

"There's a lot of scrutiny that it was money motivated, it was not", she told a British TV talk show. Markle, 36, and Harry, 33, met in July 2016 and made their first official appearance as a couple at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto.

"This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding", a palace spokesperson said.

Prince Harry also issued a strongly-worded statement in 2016 because of the paparazzi's obsession with Markle and her family, as well as the United Kingdom media's headlines about her race.

It comes after Mr Markle earlier told the site he was determined to make his daughter's big day saying: "I'd like to be a part of history".
