Apparently, despite the man’s scandal, Meghan Markle still wants to have her dad at her royal wedding on May 19. As you may be aware, Thomas Markle was exposed for faking paparazzi photos and yesterday, he announced that he will no longer attend the American actress’ nuptials to Prince Harry.
Thomas was, of course, supposed to walk his daughter down the aisle but after his decision, Meghan is reportedly devastated.
‘This was his decision entirely. Meghan would still like him to come,’ one insider told ET.
We will have to wait and see if the man will end up changing his mind or not.
As for who would take over his role of accompanying Meghan down the aisle, it has not been announced.
‘There is no plan in place yet who will walk Meghan down the aisle,’ the same source stated.
The whole controversy started during the weekend when a Mail report revealed surveillance camera footage showing Thomas chatting with a paparazzo before the pics were taken.
Later on, he talked to TMZ, confessing the scheme and saying he regrets the set-up paparazzi photo shoot.
He called the photos ‘stupid and hammy’ an announced that he would no longer attend the royal wedding as he does not wish to embarrass his daughter in front of the royals.
Meghan’s dad also revealed that he had suffered a heart attack days before the scandal and now he is experiencing chest pains again because of it.
Kensington Palace released the following statement for ET: ‘This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.’
