The Royal Wedding Drama Around Meghan Markle's Dad, Explained

According to media reports out new on Tuesday afternoon in TMZ, Thomas will undergo major heart surgery at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow morning.

Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha Markle, recently said she was the "culprit" who urged their father to stage the photos in an ill-fated bid to improve his image.

Kensington Palace pleaded in a statement for "understanding and respect" during a "difficult situation" as United States media reported Markle had suffered a heart attack brought on by the fallout from the photo row. He also said that he had suffered a heart attack a week earlier. Exercise fanatic Markle loves running as well as yoga and has, according to friends, indeed been doing laps around the park as part of her pre-wedding exercise regimen.

In 2016, Meghan Markle wrote her mom, who is a social worker with the geriatric community and a yoga instructor, calls her "Flower" and raised her to be a global citizen. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this hard situation".

Mr Markle, 73, told TMZ that he had agreed to pose for a paparazzi photo shoot in a bid to rehabilitate his image, rather than for money, but that he now regretted the move.

He said he now thinks that though the photo shoot was "stupid", it was not bad enough to keep him from her wedding.

On Tuesday afternoon, Thomas said he still really wanted to walk Meghan, 36, down the aisle and would be attending the ceremony and reception.

He confessed that his daughter, who he shares with ex-wife Doria Ragland, "harbours no ill feelings toward him".

The report also mentions that Markle is back in the hospital after reportedly being treated for a heart attack a week ago.

The drama over Meghan Markle's father continues.

Tusk: the EU Trump got rid of all illusions
Meanwhile, the European Union is also trying to be exempted from the aluminium and steel trade tariffs imposed by the US. He also suggested the European Union owes Trump a debt of gratitude for helping Europe to drop " all illusions ".

"In the Charles and Diana days it was the war of the words played out in the newspapers via the couple's friends, so it's lovely to see that Harry and William, and by extension Meghan and Kate, are surrounded by such a tight group of friends". "And the idea of contemplating him not being there now is not something that she wants to have to do", a source told the Daily Mail.

But now it turns out his health, rather than embarrassment, will prevent him from being by her side.

At 5:30 a.m., the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth, will arrive to the church by foot after spending the night at Windsor Castle.

Kensington Palace declined to confirm whether or not Markle had pulled out of attending but appealed for understanding.
