Meghan Markle's Dad Says He Isn't Going To The Royal Wedding

Meghan Markle's dad Thomas Markle told TMZ that he isn't planning on going to the Royal Wedding after a recent controversy surrounding him staging paparazzi photos. He said he doesn't want to embarrass the Royal Family or his daughter by being there. There have been several photos that surfaced in the last couple months including Mr. Markle sitting in a coffee shop reading a book about Britain and him getting measured for a suit for the big day. Both photos have been exposed as fake after a coffee barista claimed Markle came into the cafe with the photographer before he took the photos. He has admitted that he did set up the photos with an agency in order to clean up his image before the big day. He said at the time he didn't see any harm in it but loking back he said his paparazzi pictures look "stupid and hammy" and now regrets it. 

Thomas is currently back in the hospital after suffering complications after a heart attack he had a week ago. Supposedly Meghan reached out saying she is concerned for his health and has no ill feelings about how staging photos with paparazzi. 

The Royal Wedding is taking place this Saturday May 19th at 5am MST on CTV.
