Meghan Markle’s father was set to walk her down the aisle on May 19 – until footage emerged this week showing the lighting director staging photos with paparazzi. A day later, Thomas Markle told TMZ he would no longer attend the royal wedding, and the Palace has confirmed the news.
“This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said on Monday, May 14. “She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.”
The happy couple will tie the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. It remains unknown who will walk the bride down the aisle.
