Media hype around Markle's father overshadows royal wedding

Prince George and Princess Charlotte will have prominent roles in Saturday's royal wedding.

Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle Sr., 73, returned to the hospital on May 14, less than a week after he suffered a terrifying heart attack.

Thomas Markle may still walk his daughter down the aisle. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have invited well-wishers to make donations to one of seven chosen charities to mark their wedding this weekend.

The palace has already announced that Ms Markle is not having a maid of honour because she did not want to choose just one person from her close-knit group of friends.

Markle also said that he thought the pictures were "stupid", according to TMZ, and made a decision to skip the wedding as he didn't want to embarrass Meghan or the royal family any further.

Thousands of journalists are descending on Windsor, and Mr Markle told TMZ earlier this week that the media attention had taken its toll.

He was seeking to redress damage to his image by "paparazzi who have photographed him in the most unflattering circumstances", says the website.

Bryant, who has been active on Twitter against the media's reports about his behavior, responded when asked if he regretted not taking the offer.

Thomas Markle was set to walk Meghan down the aisle during the church ceremony, and Ragland plans to ride to the chapel with her daughter.

Meghan Markle's half-sister, Samantha Markle reportedly supported her father and blamed herself for all the staged photos.

"I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends with Meghan".

Ms. Meghan has previously heaped her father with compliments for investing in her future.

As a divorcee, with a white father and an African-American mother, Ms Markle's background has provided a source of huge interest and comment, not all positive. Both were expected to meet Queen Elizabeth II and other senior royals in the days before the wedding. "Any time there is or has been negative press about Meghan, he always blows it off and acts as though it's them two against the world".

It appears some extended family members are seeking the spotlight.
