Meghan Markle’s father will not be attending her wedding to Prince Harry on Saturday after being busted for selling staged paparazzi photos of himself. Thomas Markle was supposed to walk his daughter down the aisle. But, he will now steer clear of the event to avoid embarrassing her. Kensington Palace has issued a statement that reads, “This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.”
Details of how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will spend the final night before their wedding have been revealed. The couple will spend their evenings in separate hotels. Harry and his brother Prince William will stay at the five-star country house Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park, while Markle and her mother Doria Ragland will stay at Cliveden House Hotel on the National Trust’s Cliveden Estate. Rooms at Harry and Markle’s hotels start at $432 and $628, respectively. Harry and Markle will wed at St. George’s Chapel this Saturday, May 19.
