Who will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle on Saturday? Who knows?
After a few hectic days, father of the bride Thomas Markle says he won't be making the trip from Mexico out to London to walk his daughter down the aisle. As for why, well according to Thomas he suffered a heart attack a week ago and was checking himself back into hospital last night with more chest pains. Another reason might be sheer embarrassment after Thomas admitted to staging those paparazzi shots of him reading books on England and researching on a public computer that country where his daughter is about to join the royal family.
Anything could happen from here, but at this stage Meghan's mother Doria Ragland, who divorced from Thomas when Meghan was six, might be doing the honours on Saturday.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson issued this statement about the kerfuffle: "[Meghan] and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Marklein this difficult situation."
So does this mean Thomas might change his mind? Well he said last night that Meghan is yet to contact him so the situation looks unlikely. But with a story this bonkers, who knows what might happen next?
