ROYAL WEDDING: Meghan's dad 'popping Valium'

ROYAL WEDDING: Meghan's dad 'popping Valium'

However, reports in the United States yesterday quoted him as saying he had decided not to go after being caught co-operating with paparazzi "because he doesn't want to embarrass the royal family or his daughter". A few days later, another set of images caught him at an Internet café, looking at an article about Harry and Meghan's engagement.

Kensington Palace has confirmed Doria will be escorting Meghan on her journey from Clivedon Hotel to Windsor Castle for the wedding.

Thomas Markle told TMZ that he will go into surgery at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday to fix extensive damage from a heart attack he believes was triggered due to the open letter his son, Thomas Jr., wrote to Prince Harry trying to discourage him from marrying Meghan.

Both the Daily Express and the Daily Star also lead on the same story, with the Express reporting that the royal wedding had been "thrown into chaos".

The reportedly shy and reclusive 73-year-old retired Hollywood lighting director had been expected to walk Meghan, his US -born former TV actress daughter, down the aisle in front of a globally televised audience.

The £1.55 stamp is a more informal black-and-white image showing Ms Markle with her arm through Harry's as she gently holds his hand while they walk happily through the grounds.

Her mother, Doria Ragland (61) a social worker and yoga teacher who lives in Los Angeles, is expected to accompany her daughter in the bridal auto.

It's unconfirmed at this point which, if any, of these options are under consideration, or if Markle's father is really going to skip the wedding, as he said Monday.

"From me talking to him, he's very excited to be a part of it", Tracey Dooley, Meghan's former sister-in-law, told "Good Morning Britain" in March. Therefore, it makes sense that Prince William could step in to walk Markle down the aisle, due to the couples' closeness. She said her father had "suffered at the hands of the media" and had decided "enough is enough".

Thomas Markle's problems have now gone well beyond a silly paparazzi photo scandal.

Meghan Markle is estranged from her half-sister, who has not been expected to attend the nuptials. Kensington Palace has previously said Markle's parents would meet senior members of the royal family, including the Queen, in private this week. He says that his motivation in posing for the photographs was not financial, and that he has turned down several paid interview requests since Markle and Harry started dating.

But despite all the media fanfare, most Brits don't actually care about the coming wedding of Prince Harry and American actor Meghan Markle at all, a new poll has found.
