Thomas Markle may still walk his daughter down the aisle.

He added: "Of course I'd walk her down the aisle". 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. She said reporters had also harassed him at his home and that he recently suffered a heart attack. Reports further cited that Thomas was planning on getting out of the hospital and attending his daughter's wedding but then backed out as it was revealed that he had been involved in staged paparazzi photoshoots.

Thomas Markle said he now thought the pictures were "stupid and hammy", according to a TMZ report, and that he made the decision to skip the wedding so he wouldn't embarrass the royal family or his daughter.

Buckingham Palace has remained resolutely silent throughout, only today issuing a statement describing Mr Markle's withdrawal as a "difficult situation" and a "deeply personal moment for Ms Markle".

The littlest royals - Prince George and Princess Charlotte - will be a part of the bridal party when their uncle, Prince Harry, marries American actress Meghan Markle on May 19.

"She's been an activist for much of her life", Fitzwilliams said of Meghan.




Thomas Markle and Ragland divorced when their daughter was 6-years-old, but they both played an active role raising her. And he would only attend if his health allowed it, he said. "I think he wants to go to the hospital and get checked out".

On Sunday, Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper caught Markle in an act of media imposture, and not of the kind familiar from the faux-natural documentaries that the Royal Family regularly commissions, to show the plebs that it is Just Like Them.

Mr Markle also reportedly sounded off on eldest daughter Samantha tallking to the media, saying she has not had a relationship with Meghan as an adult and has no knowledge of Meghan's relationship with Prince Harry.

Thomas Markle spent a career in Hollywood, but nothing prepared him for this.

She also alleged Thomas was being hounded by the press in an "atrocious and intrusive and highly unethical" manner, seemingly referring to Princess Diana's 1997 death, in a auto crash, when she said, "He calls me panicking on the freeway when he's in a unsafe situation being followed by seven or eight cars, I think there have been examples in history of how risky that can be".

Ms Ptak might be taking inspiration from a lemony recipe which belongs to her mother after writing of Elisabeth Ptak's "legendary lemon bars".
