The father of the bride will not be in attendance.
While news recently broke of her father staging wedding prep photos with the paparazzi, Meghan Markle‘s father claims that he will not be walking his daughter down the aisle as she weds Prince Harry this Saturday, May 19.
In addition to him not wanting to embarrass his daughter since the photo controversy outbreak, Thomas Markle states that he’s working on his health after checking himself out the hospital following a heart attacked suffered 6 days prior.
Additionally, the father of the bride tells TMZ that he meant no harm to his daughter or the Royal Family when he conspired to allow a photo agency to take photos of him getting ready for the wedding a few months back; to which he reportedly earned $135,000 for.
However, clearing up those rumors, Thomas says he’s been ambushed by paparazzi for the past year; and this particular agency approached and offered him money, but nowhere near the alleged $100,000+.
Also, he admits that the pictures look “stupid and hammy,” but was just going along with the flow.
As a result, he now deeply regrets the situation.
