Watch out for the kids: George, Charlotte in royal wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are making final preparations for their wedding

Markle's father Thomas today pulled out of attending his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry this weekend.

Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha, tweeted Monday that she is to blame for the photo debacle.

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.

Meghan Markle's father will not attend her wedding to Prince Harry this weekend, United States media reported Monday, as Kensington Palace pleaded for "understanding and respect" for the couple during a "difficult situation".

In addition, Meghan Markle reportedly called her father after his most recent health scare. 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. The news website also claimed that he had recently suffered a heart attack.

It was previously reported that Thomas Markle didn't want to show his face at the royal wedding after he admitted to staging paparazzi photos of himself getting ready for the wedding.

With Markle's father definitively not attending the royal wedding, the question of who will walk her down the aisle remains.

Meghan Markle, the fiancee of Britain's Prince Harry, attends the Dawn Service at Wellington Arch to commemorate Anzac Day in London, Britain, April 25, 2018. "She and Prince Harry are begging for people to give him some space".

"This is not a game - it is her life and his", said the statement from Harry's press secretary.

He said that if doctors allow him to be discharged, he will fly to London.

If you thought that the drama surrounding Meghan Markle's dad and the royal wedding was over, think again.

"It makes me feel like they're going to grow up thinking that girls are less than them", a young Markle said.

A palace spokesman said: "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before her wedding". After that, Thomas Markle would have a cup of tea with his new in-laws.

"She's very close to her mother, though, isn't she?"

Meghan and fiancé Harry are said to be "doing everything they can to help him" and are concerned about the public pressure he is under.

"Diana turned the royal family inside out", said Ellis Cashmore, honorary professor of sociology at Aston University and author of books on celebrity culture.

"I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends with Meghan".
