Meghan Markle's Father Will No Longer Be Walking Her Down The Aisle Amid Photo Scandal
Ahhhhh damn, this has gotten messy.
Reports are running rampant that Meghan Markle's father Thomas will no longer be walking his daughter down the aisle at the royal wedding after scandal has rocked the nuptials.
Last week it was alleged by Mail On Sunday that the 73-year-old “secretly collaborated with a British paparazzi photographer” to take a series of images in which he was payed.
Yeah you might remember these innocent enough pics of the man reading up on British culture? Apparently fake.

Meghan's half-sister has now chimed in and said that the whole fiasco is her fault because she was trying to help counter some negative press about her father.

Anyway TMZ are now reporting that the American lighting director has told them directly he will no longer be attending Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry "because he doesn’t want to embarrass the royal family or his daughter." He has also mentioned that he recently suffered a heart attack so that has also been taken into consideration when making the decision.

Kensington Palace haven't officially confirmed news about his presence at the wedding but said the matter was “deeply personal moment” and a “difficult situation” for the bride-to-be.

Well, we mean family situations are tough sometimes. Who hasn't had a big bust up before a wedding? Just a shame the whole world is watching this one.
