The Royal Wedding: Meghan Markle's father won't walk her down the aisle

Who is Lady Amelia Windsor as Harry and Meghan'snub her from invite list

Access Hollywood shared some of the updates Meghan Markle's Suits co-stars have shared about their travels for the royal wedding.

"I've been popping Valium for the pain, especially when I hear about my oldest daughter", he said.

Backtracking on his statements the day before, Thomas Markle told TMZ on Tuesday that he has chose to go to the wedding after speaking with his daughter.

Speaking about the chicken - I mean the, er, engagement - in their first join interview, Prince Harry told the BBC: "It happened a few weeks ago, earlier this month, here at our cottage; just a standard typical night for us".

In a statement, Kensington Palace did not confirm Markle would not be in attendance at the wedding, but asked for "understanding and respect" to be given to him.

After much speculation, Thomas Markle Sr. will reportedly not be in attendance for their upcoming nuptials.

According to the Mail, the photos in the internet cafe were taken on March 27, and the visit to the party goods shop was photographed the day before. But he reportedly told the celebrity website TMZ that he is no longer planning to come to the wedding where 600 guests have been invited.

She also said she did not harbour any ill feelings about the paparazzi photos it was revealed he staged on Monday.

"She doesn't want to let anything ruin her day and is trying to keep focus on the weekend", the insider continued. When asked if her father had been paid, she said didn't think so but wasn't sure. "I was telling him the measurements but he didn't write them down or anything".

Kensington Palace has not confirmed if Mr Markle will still attend the wedding, but said Meghan and Prince Harry have called for "understanding". "I have no idea".

While this all sounds pretty standard, what some people found puzzling is the fact that the Queen referred to Kate Middleton as "trusty and well-beloved" when she signed the Instrument of Consent for her 2011 marriage to Prince William, but Markle did not receive the same affectionate treatment. Speaking to TMZ, Thomas admitted the photos look "stupid and hammy" and "deeply regrets" what he has done to his daughter, Meghan.

Iran hopes to keep nuclear agreement
Today's problem is not US sanctions, it's that some officials look towards outside rather than looking at domestic potential. The head of the elite Revolutionary Guards also warned against relying on foreign powers to guarantee Iran's interests.

If it does work, helicopters may have a real future as low-flying scouts and aerial vehicles to access locations not reachable by ground travel".

It is estimated that the photos sold for up to £100,000, or about $135,500 - although Markle Sr. denied to TMZ that they sold for even $100,000.

To add to the confusion, Mr Markle's daughter, Meghan's estranged half-sister Samantha, yesterday claimed that she was "the culprit" behind the humiliating photograph debacle.

A British newspaper reported that Ms Markle found out her father wasn't planning to attend her wedding through media reports, and that she had no prior warning.

"The bad press over my father doing staged photos is my fault", she tweeted on Monday.

"I feel that the media have unfairly preyed on him and he has really been admirable about laying low and not speaking out on certain things", Markle told ITV.

'Stop doing the, "Let's talk about the royal wedding"'.

However royal expert and author Ingrid Seward told VF.com that if Thomas Markle is a no show, Prince Charles would also be a suitable stand in. He had a pretty big health scare. "I merely wanted him to be seen in a respectable light and that wasn't being done".

Back in London, the couple tried to keep their budding romance under wraps, away from the prying eyes of the world's tabloid media.

The former lighting director, who lives in Mexico, has since had a change of heart.

He and Ms Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, divorced when Ms Markle was six years old. Markle and Prince Harry are due to Wednesday at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel on Saturday, May 19.
