Meghan Markle's father Thomas under 'unbelievable amount of stress', says half-sister

Meghan Markle's father Thomas under 'unbelievable amount of stress', says half-sister

Markle's bridesmaids on Saturday will include three-year-old Princess Charlotte, the daughter of her soon-to-be brother-in-law Prince William.

The other pageboys are Harry's godson, Jasper Dyer, aged six, and seven-year-old twin brothers Brian and John Mulroney.

The news comes following reports revolving around Markle's father, Thomas Markle, first admitting he staged photos for the paparazzi to improve his image and backing out of the wedding only to reverse course and say he would be attending.

Next is Ivy Mulroney, age four, who is the daughter of stylist Jessica Mulroney, one of Meghan's best friends, and Benedict Mulroney.

Kensington Palace, the official residence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, issued a statement late Monday following the allegations that Markle's father, who lives in Mexico, had pulled out of the wedding.

Thomas Markle (73), was quoted by some US media as saying that he would not attend the royal wedding to avoid embarrassing his daughter and the royal family after paparazzi shots of him seemed to indicate he had been paid to pose for photographers.

DIANA'S DRESS — THE REAL THING

Thousands of journalists are descending on Windsor, and Mr Markle told TMZ earlier this week that the media attention had taken its toll.

The monarch recently gave her formal consent to the forthcoming marriage, signing a notice of approval which consented to the union of: "Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, K.C.V.O., and Rachel Meghan Markle". Her t-shirt featured a drawing of a dog.

Ms. Meghan's half-sister, Samantha, has since claimed she hopes their father will attend if he is well enough.

"He had a moral right to set the record straight and defend himself", she said. "Every day after school for 10 years, I was on the set of Married ... with Children, which is a really amusing and perverse place for a little girl in a Catholic school uniform to grow up", she told Esquire in 2013.

It appears some extended family members are seeking the spotlight.

On May 19, royal wedding fans will be gathered around their televisions or amongst the crowds in Windsor to catch a glimpse of the bride and groom.

She said she then looked at the man and told him he was ignorant, to which he replied that he was much more intelligent than her. He later explained that the customer had misread the situation. "This is America", said the man in the video.
