Meghan Markle’s Father Finally Comments on the Royal Wedding

It’s no secret that the newly-wedded Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, wasn’t accompanied by her father when she walked down the aisle on her wedding day. Instead, she was led by Prince Charles, her now-father-in-law. So where was Thomas Markle?

Family Drama

The Markle family has been subject to quite a bit of drama, especially since the royal engagement was announced. Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father, had reportedly staged photos with paparazzi at the suggestion of Meghan’s step-sister.

Time

He reportedly teamed up with the photographers in order to change how his image was portrayed in the public, in hopes of making himself appear younger, fitter, and healthier.

Matters of the Heart

Unfortunately, a few days before the wedding, Thomas Markle reportedly suffered a heart attack. He underwent surgery on May 16th, and on May 17th, Markle released a statement announcing her father’s impending absence.

US Magazine

“Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health. I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday.”

A Family of One

When the day of the wedding finally arrived, only Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, attended. She sat alone at the ceremony, as the rest of Markle’s family was either indisposed or not invited.

Essence

Meghan’s father was very sad to have missed the wedding, but his doctors insisted that he was not fit to travel by the time of the wedding, so he was forced to remain in the States. However, he had nothing but good wishes for his daughter, saying, “My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy. I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and happiness.”
