It is four days to the wedding of former American actress Meghan Markle and British Royalty Prince Harry but the tension is intense.
From reports of her siblings turning the scourge on the actress for what many see as simply being envious of her to her father, Thomas Markle, 71, saying he will be absent from the wedding. Fans are shocked.
Her estranged brother and sister, who claimed severally that they were not invited for the wedding and who pleaded with the Prince to call off his wedding, are in London.
The brother. Thomas Jnr, 51, who called Prince Harry’s bride-to-be a C-rated actress and also said she had not invited her father, has now addressed reports on why their father would not be able to attend his daughter’s wedding.
He told the Daily Mirror, “Meg will be frantic, she’ll want to know how he is. I’m deeply concerned about him.
“As much as he was dreading all eyes being on him he will not want to cause any embarrassment or deflect attention away from Meghan and Harry’s day.
“He’ll be devastated not to be going but also relieved.”
Thomas explained that their father was truly ill and may be a cause of distraction at his daughter’s wedding, something he wouldn’t want to do.
This same Thomas was agitated in April, calling Meghan a self-conceited individual who doesn’t deserve to be married to Prince Harry.
