It’s been a crazy few days for the Markle family in the run up to this weekend’s Royal Wedding – but it’s finally been confirmed her Father (Thomas Markle) will not be attending.

After some controversy over supposedly staged paparazzi pictures of him preparing for his daughter’s wedding last week, it was said that Mr Markle was under ‘unbelievable stress’.

TMZ had reported Monday that he would not be present ‘to avoid embarrassing his daughter’. Which was then quickly changed to not attending due to ‘health concerns’.
Leaving everyone puzzled until a third report revealed he would undergo surgery which would ultimately leave him unable to attend.

Meghan Markle finally broke the silence this afternoon. Stating she had ‘always cared for her father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health’.

She went on to thank people for their messages of support and shared her excitement for the big day.

We’ve all been left feeling a little confused and wondering who’ll be walking Meghan down the aisle on Saturday.

Whatever the result – we can’t wait to see her and Harry finally say ‘I Do’.
