MEGHAN MARKLE HAS confirmed that her father will not be attending her royal wedding to Prince Harry this weekend.

The US actress’s family members have been subjected to intense tabloid scrutiny in the lead-up the wedding, but none more so than her father Thomas Markle.

There had been speculation that he would not be attending the wedding, but that was confirmed today. In a statement issued by Kensington Palace, Markle said that she has always cared for her father and hopes he can be given “the space he needs to focus on his health”.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Thomas Markle had suffered a heart attack. The news came after it was reported he had posed for paparazzi photos in the UK.

The images, showing him being measured for a suit and admiring a photo of the future royal couple on his computer, sold for $100,000 (€83,000) according to tabloid the Daily Mirror.

Meghan Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, is divorced from her father, a retired Hollywood lighting director.
