Even future royalty can’t escape the rumor mill.
In fact, Markle’s father will no longer even attend the wedding. This information comes after news broke that Markle’s father sold photographs of himself preparing for the Royal Wedding–something he has since said he regrets. The drama continues after he claimed to have recently suffered a heart attack, and is now allegedly undergoing heart surgery–keeping him from traveling across the pond.
Following the scandal, the Palace asked the public for “understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.” The statement went on to say how this is a deeply personal moment for the royal couple.
