Meghan Markle seeks respect for dad after report he'll skip wedding

  • Thomas Markle left will not be attending the royal wedding his daughter Meghan Markle said on Thursday

The palace said earlier it would not comment on the report, and its statement did not clarify if the bride's father would or would not be at the wedding. They stated: "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before her wedding".

Ms. Ragland is already set to accompany her daughter to the wedding site - a break with tradition - but, if Mr. Markle does not come, she could wind up walking her down the aisle, too.

Thomas Markle Sr, 73, is reportedly undergoing heart surgery on Wednesday, according to the U.S. celebrity website TMZ through which, after months of silence, the retired TV lighting director now appears to communicate. He also said he had been hospitalized after suffering a heart attack a week ago.

Newsweek has reached out to Hayes for comment, but did not hear back in time for publication. He was rolling when a squad vehicle from the Memphis Police Department rolled up.


The 73-year-old is said to be booked in for surgery on Wednesday morning local time, and will not be able to fly to London in time for the Saturday wedding. Other reports alleged that the Queen was "angry" about the situation and planning to talk to him about "royal protocol".

The father also told TMZ he was upset after he learned that Meghan Markle's 51-year-old half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. had sent a vicious handwritten letter to In Touch Weekly.

The pair had booked their big day at Yandina Station, on the Sunshine Coast, months before they learned the royal wedding date.

With revelations of Thomas Markle's staged paparazzi photos in the lead-up to the wedding, and the fact that half-sister Samantha Markle is writing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister, I'm going to hazard a guess that Ragland, a yoga teacher and former social worker, is a rare grounding force in the future Duchess of Sussex's family. When a school teacher told her to tick the Caucasian box on a mandatory ethnicity census, he father told her: "If that happens again, you draw your own box". "The media was unfairly making him look bad so I suggested he do positive photos for his benefit and the benefit of the royal family".

A source told the Daily Express that Harry's grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philips are "very angry" with Thomas, and are holding a meeting with the palace's communication office to discuss his involvement - if any - in the wedding. "Additionally, during her senior year, she was selected to serve as a student leader for the senior class Kairos Retreat, a coveted role typically reserved for students known for their empathy as well as their abilities to listen and guide students in reflective conversations during the four-day retreat".

"It will be all right", said Dilia Rigley.
