It seems that Thomas Markle, Meghan Markle’s father, has recently announced that he is not going to attend this weekend’s royal wedding, the special day when his daughter is going to marry Britain’s Prince Harry. Because of this, people have already begun speculating about who will walk the future bride down the aisle, if her father won’t attend the event. Actually, this is one the last of a series of challengers that the future royal couple has been struggling with since November, when they officially announced their engagement.
On Saturday, the two are going to officially tie the know in a grand ceremony which will take place at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor. On Monday, Thomas Markle said that he will not be attending the wedding because he doesn’t want to embarrass his daughter. The reason for this is a series of photos that, according to him, are staged. According to reports, Thomas Markle worked with a picture agency to have some photos taken of him supposedly preparing for the big day. Now, he thinks that it was a stupid idea and now, he doesn’t want to embarrass his daughter, family, or the royal family.

Moreover, on Monday, Markle’s half-sister, Samantha, admitted that she urged their father to take these photos so that he might improve his image. So, because of this decision, people are now wondering who will walk Meghan down the aisle when the big moment comes. For now, there are three possible solutions: her mother, Doria Ragland, Prince Charles or Prince William.
Ragland could be the one to take the place of her father, with Prince Charles closely behind. As for the controversy regarding the guest list, Kensington Palace announced that no political leaders would be invited to the wedding. So, The Trumps and the Obamas will certainly be a no-show.
