Royal Wed­ding: Meghan Sad over Dad’s Wed­ding Ab­sence

THISDAY - - WORLD OF ISLAM | INTERNATIONAL -

Meghan Markle says her fa­ther will not at­tend her wed­ding to Prince Harry on Satur­day, ac­cord­ing to BBC.

In a state­ment, she said she had “al­ways cared” for her fa­ther and hoped he could be given the space he needed to fo­cus on his health.

In re­cent days, doubts had been raised over whether Thomas Markle would be at the wed­ding to walk his daugh­ter down the aisle.

On Wed­nes­day, it was re­ported that he had to un­dergo heart surgery.

Mr Markle had been due to meet the prince for the first time this week, as well as the Queen and the Duke of Ed­in­burgh.

The cou­ple can ex­pect a sunny and breezy day, with tem­per­a­tures reach­ing up to a balmy 21C in the late af­ter­noon.

Mr Markle, who is un­der­stood to be in Mex­ico, was caught up in con­tro­versy af­ter al­legedly stag­ing pho­to­graphs with the pa­parazzi.

He later told US celebrity news web­site TMZ he would not at­tend the wed­ding amid the con­tro­versy; then that he would; and then that he could not, due to a planned heart pro­ce­dure.

Ms Markle’s es­tranged half-sis­ter, Sa­man­tha, said he had faced “un­be­liev­able stress”.
