Too busy to watch? Corbyn to miss royal wedding show

Too busy to watch? Corbyn to miss royal wedding show

Prince Harry's press office said Wednesday it had no additional comment beyond a statement made two days ago calling for "understanding and respect" for Markle's father, Thomas, "in this hard situation".

Students at Meghan Markle's former Los Angeles high school stage a 'Here's to Meghan!' celebration ahead of her marriage to Prince Harry, as they celebrate at Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles, California, U.S., May 15, 2018.

A spokeswoman for the prince declined to comment directly on the TMZ report or to say whether Markle's father would be at the wedding.

He scoffed at rumors that the queen was angry at him, saying he doubts that she is thinking about the incident at all. But later that day he was reportedly set to undergo heart surgery on Wednesday.

If her father does not come, British newspapers suggested that Ms. Markle's mother, with who she is spending the night before the ceremony at a nearby luxury hotel, would walk her daughter down the aisle. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation".

In a break with tradition Doria Ragland was set to accompany her daughter in the auto from the hotel to St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Backtracking on his statements the day before, Thomas Markle told TMZ on Tuesday that he has made a decision to go to the wedding after speaking with his daughter.

Meghan Markle's father, Thomas, has said he will not attend his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry, after a scandal erupted over staged photographs.

Some 79 global broadcasters, including outlets from the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, are planning to report on Markle and Harry's wedding.

Meghan Markle will not have a maid of honor.

When she eventually got together with Harry she emailed Win right away to tell him she'd met someone new from England. He said she sent him a text saying she loved him and was anxious about his health, and is not angry about the staged paparazzi photo shoot.

At various points, Kensington Palace even intervened publicly telling the media to stop harassing Mr Markle.

Like most everyone else with a taste for fairytales, Germans love the spectacle of a royal wedding.

Thomas Markle, 73, is a retired Hollywood cinematographer who lives in Mexico and is divorced from Markle's mother.

Who will walk Megan down the aisle then?

"At my age most people are, like, "give me a hotel".
