Meghan Markle's father will not attend royal wedding

GettyMeghan Markle The Queen will talk to Thomas Markle Sr about royal protocol it is said

"Meghan would still like him to come".

But a new report from the Mail on Sunday revealed that the photos weren't coincidental - they were staged. No, he brought Los Angeles-based photographer Jeff Rayner all the way to his adopted hometown of Rosarito, Mexico, for the photo ops.

The biracial American actress, like her fiance Prince Harry, is a child of divorce.

TMZ reported that Markle Sr meant no harm to his daughter or the royal family when he allowed the photo agency to take the pictures and that he had not been motivated by money.

TMZ said Thomas Markle was upset over the way his decision to have staged paparazzi photos taken of him preparing for the wedding has been received and chose to miss the wedding to avoid embarrassing his daughter and the royal family.

"I have to say I am entirely the culprit".

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. They were what one might expect paparazzi snaps of a non-famous person would look like: mundane and, well, a little unflattering.

"I said the world has no idea that you're getting in shape and doing healthy things", she said. "That was not the motive - it was my suggestion", she said. He's a quiet man. So I suggested it. He's really been admirable about laying low and not speaking out, with all due respect.

As soon as the microphone was in her hand, however, Anthony delivered a rendition of " Perfect " that floored the pop star. Pink asked. "Are you the singer?" "How do you follow that?" Congrats to Anthony for making her dream come true.

"I wanted a title that was opposite content, so for intelligent minds, to look at that I assume that people would understand that, ' before saying people preferred to 'look at the negative".

"(Harry) is devastated. He feels like this is another thing in the wake of him. the problems he causes.

The palace, which had reiterated Harry's appeals for Meghan's parents' privacy, had no comment.

He and co-host Susanna Reid, 47, had a live link to Samantha, 53, to talk about the sisters' relationship and why she's not invited to the wedding.

A lot of the wedding details have been announced in advance - Harry and Meghan's festival food trucks, Prince George and Princess Charlotte being part of the ceremony and their millennial wedding photography choices. "Meghan and mom Doria Ragland will stay at @Cliveden_House on the National Trust's Cliveden Estate", he tweeted. "They were out of the house by the time she was born". Many brides are walked down the aisle by their fiancé's father; this typically happens when the bride's father is deceased.

"(Harry will be feeling) guilty and frustrated and impotent; he's tried to protect her as much as he could and here he is at the last fence, failing miserably, but it's not his fault", Junor told CNN.

Thomas Markle is a former lighting director who worked on popular TV shows "Married with Children" and "General Hospital", according to the Internet Movie Database.
