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

There are still no news on who will walk Meghan down the aisle and we hope that this is not causing the bride additional stress.

Meghan and Thomas Markle's relationship has had "ups and downs over the years", according to People magazine.

Prince Harry and his elder brother Prince William have both made clear in the past their dislike of the press, fuelled by the death of their mother Princess Diana in a Paris vehicle crash in 1997 as her limousine sped away from chasing paparazzi. "Am I coming to yours?" to which the reporter said she'd send her an invite. He also said he had suffered a heart attack a week ago.

TMZ said Thomas Markle had decided not to attend the marriage of his actress daughter to the British prince, who is Queen Elizabeth's grandson, because he did not wish to embarrass the royals after media reports that he had staged paparazzi photographs.

According to the TMZ report, Markle thinks that staging the photos was "stupid" but not a serious transgression.

In what TMZ says is in an exclusive interview, the former lighting director is stepping down from his public role in the wedding after recent allegations. The website reported that he said money was not his primary motivation for agreeing to be photographed and he was opting to miss the wedding to avoid embarrassing his daughter and the royal family.

It has previously issued warnings to the media not to publish pictures of Mr Markle or Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, taken "under circumstances of harassment".

Thomas and Meghan's estranged half-sister Samantha said it was to make his image look better. He said he was buying the beer for security guards at the retirement community where he lives. She also reportedly told her father that she didn't care about the paparazzi photos.

Later a couple of pictures were leaked depicting Thomas was caught unawares being measured for his wedding suit, looking at pictures of his daughter and her husband-to-be at an internet cafe, and reading a book about Britain while out having a coffee.

The couple are due to Wednesday this Saturday, 19 May.

Mr Markle told TMZ he changed his mind after his daughter contacted him to say she loved him and was concerned about his health.

The way Meghan and Harry will arrive at the wedding is very formal and the couple attended the royal mews at Buckingham Palace weeks ago to choose their carriage.

"I feel that the media have unfairly preyed on him and he has really been admirable about laying low and not speaking out on certain things", Markle told ITV. We had no idea he would be taken advantage of.
