Meghan Markle's sister attacks media pursuit of their father before royal wedding

Meghan Markle's sister attacks media pursuit of their father before royal wedding

This includes Ms Markle's mother, Doria Radlan, but not her father, Thomas Markle, who sensationally pulled out of the wedding entirely.

Samantha Markle told the TV show "Good Morning Britain" that journalists "rented the house next to him in Mexico, four or five of them".

"I do not believe so, that was not the motive - it was my suggestion", she said.

Then comes the news that he suffered a heart attack just seven days ago.

Kensington Palace has appealed for "understanding and respect" for Prince Harry and Meghan amid this latest media storm. The royal family made concessions to popular interests, including carefully staged interviews and photo opportunities with William and Harry as they grew up.

Prince Harry has yet to meet his future father-in-law. She obviously wants her dad there.

Meghan Markle is estranged from her half-sister, who has not been expected to attend the nuptials, and from her half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr. "So I suggested the photographers show him as he is, doing positive things".

"I understand it is still very much Meghan Markle's wish that her father should be there on Saturday to support her", he added. However, as per latest reports in an global magazine, Thomas has now dropped out of the wedding.

The 52-year-old superstar quipped that for " Race 3 ", he has added a bit of the family drama "Hum Aapke Hai Koun". The third sequel of the popular movie is still approaching the end of production and is slated for release on Eid.

Just days ahead of Meghan Markle's wedding to Prince Harry, the American actress' father Thomas Markle Sr. rescinded his invitation, opting out of the royal fête. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation".

While Meghan Markle deals with the last-minute change to her wedding party, Kensington Palace released a rather sympathetic statement to Entertainment Tonight regarding the absence of the bride's father. The Times's Valentine Low pointed out that "the pictures that have aroused suspicion were all taken by the same agency, Coleman-Rayner, which is run from Los Angeles by two British journalists".

A source close to Thomas Markle, cited by the publication, said he was convinced to pose for the shots after being hounded by the paparazzi.

Thomas Markle (73) had been due to fly to Britain to take a prominent role at his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry on Saturday.

He says he was not offered anywhere near $100,000 for the photos as it was claimed in the media.

"It's really embarrassing, to be honest, because for the last few weeks the British press in particular have been warned off Thomas Markle, Meghan's father, told to leave him alone", he pointed out. Not surprisingly, Samantha has not been invited to the wedding. This weekend, reports in the London Times and The Mail on Sunday said that Markle was not only staging the portraits with the paparazzi, but getting paid for them.

"The media was unfairly making him look bad so I suggested he do positive photos for his benefit and the benefit of the Royal Family".
