Royals request 'respect' amid report Thomas Markle won't attend wedding

GETTYFA Cup final Gary Lineker has summed up what all football fans think ahead of the Royal Wedding

With just four days until her wedding, it looks increasingly likely that, despite her eleventh-hour calls to persuade him, Meghan Markle won't be walked down the aisle by her father after all.

However, reports in the U.S. yesterday quoted him as saying he had decided not to go after being caught co-operating with paparazzi "because he doesn't want to embarrass the royal family or his daughter".

But TMZ said Markle Sr had "now decided not to go because he doesn't want to embarrass the royal family or his daughter".

Kensington Palace released a statement saying, "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding".

'She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation'.

Markle reportedly told American publication TMZ he was going to skip the highly-anticipated wedding so as not to cause embarrassment to the royal family or his daughter.

"On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by auto to Windsor Castle".

CNN understands that both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are very concerned about the pressure Thomas Markle is under and are keen for the media to give him space. He is divorced from Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, who also is planning on traveling with her daughter to the wedding.

TMZ said it had spoken to Markle and that he had said a paparazzi agency had approached him and offered him money, although the sum was not close to the reported figure.

In her ITV interview Monday, Samantha Markle accused the media of taking advantage of Thomas Markle, noting that their father, who is 73 years old, is "a bit more fragile".

Britain's Prince Harry poses with Meghan Markle in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace, London, Britain, November 27, 2017.

"Kissing in front of the Queen", she captioned a photo of herself and her son Luca, 4, in front of Buckingham Palace on Sunday, May 13.

Prince Harry is also devastated and blames himself, according the report.

As such, extended family members such as third cousins were likely not to be invited.

"I can no longer tell FakeHarry and FakeMeghan from #harryandmeghan", one viewer tweeted. I would think the most dignified thing would be for Prince Charles to walk her down the aisle.

Director Menhaj Huda told Vanity Fair: "What I've heard is that they're seriously anxious about the sex scene".

"Meghan has no relationship with her half-siblings, nor has she ever had one", the source says.

"She knows she has a big support base behind her and that's all she needs to know".

No, not the 2018 World Cup, a little royal wedding involving Prince Harry and ex-Suit's actress Meghan Markle.

Mr Markle is a retired Emmy-award winning lighting director, who worked on shows such as General Hospital. Indeed, 60 percent said they plan to have a normal weekend when the sixth-in-line to the throne gets married.
