Meghan Markle's father to not attend Royal Wedding after staged photoshoot fiasco

Meghan Markle's father to not attend Royal Wedding after staged photoshoot fiasco

Making a royal wedding cake is a big undertaking and the chef behind Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's culinary centrepiece has given an insight into her preparations.

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.

Samantha will not attend the wedding, nor will Meghan's half-brother, Thomas Jr., with a source telling People that the future royal does not have a relationship with her half-siblings.

Kensington Palace said when details of the cake were unveiled: "Prince Harry and Ms Markle have asked Ms Ptak to create a lemon elderflower cake to incorporate the bright flavours of spring". Meghan's step-sister Samantha Markle who has been grabbing headlines for her distasteful statements against the royal wedding admitted to arranging the photoshoot but defended her dad and said that there's a lot of scrutiny that it was money motivated, it was not.

"And Meghan said she would like to see me on TV when I become an actress".

Ms Markle's father is white and mother African-American, and Prince Harry's office has spoken about the racism Ms Markle has experienced based on her ancestry.

Thomas, who retired to Rosarito, Mexico, was supposed to be flying to London this week to meet the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, Wills and Kate at a lunch ahead of the ceremony.

Congressman who resigned after sex harassment settlement has new job
Blake Farenthold says he will not repay $84,000 in taxpayer money used to settle a sexual harassment suit against him. There is still no word on why the former congressman was such a good hire.

The outlet, which was also the first to break the news of Thomas's decision, reports that Kensington Palace was completely "blindsided" by the decision.

There is now speculation Meghan's mother Doria will walk her down the aisle.

Of course, they don't confirm nor deny if Thomas will be attending the wedding, nor of he will be walking his daughter down the aisle-so for now we only have Thomas's confirmation to TMZ that he won't be attending. According to The Mail, Thomas was approached by a paparazzi to stage "fake photographs" which he would then be paid for.

"We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry", Ms Ragland and Mr Markle said in a joint statement about the engagement.

"I don't think the Queen is thinking about what I'm doing", he is reported as saying.

Prince Harry will be staying 15 miles away at the Dorchester Collection's Coworth Park in Ascot, with his brother, the Duke of Cambridge. We had no idea he would be taken advantage of.
