Meghan Markle wanted her estranged half-sister to remain quiet in the days leading up to her royal wedding Saturday at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, but that's not going to happen.
Ms. Meghan has previously heaped her father with compliments for investing in her future. However, as per latest reports in an global magazine, Thomas has now dropped out of the wedding.
It was that incident, where Mr Markle was caught setting up paid paparazzi photos of him Googling his own daughter, that reportedly prompted his withdrawal from the wedding.
While Kensington Palace put out a cheerful press release about Harry and Meghan's wedding menu, Samantha Grant, Meghan Markle's outspoken half sister, claimed on British television that she masterminded the whole ordeal. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation", a Kensington Palace statement said.

Mr. Markle told how he suffered a heart attack six days ago, but that he discharged himself from hospital so he could travel for the wedding. The website reported that he said money was not his primary motivation for agreeing to be photographed and he was opting to miss the wedding to avoid embarrassing his daughter and the royal family. "So perhaps her mama gives her away", said Joan Budgin. And he would only attend if his health allowed it, he said.
However, Thomas Markle may not be able to make it to London despite his change of heart.

57% of respondents said they think the royal family should pay the full cost of the wedding, including security costs. Markle's life may seem like an unlikely fairytale, but those who knew her before her engagement to Prince Harry say she's always had that something.
On Sunday, Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper caught Markle in an act of media imposture, and not of the kind familiar from the faux-natural documentaries that the Royal Family regularly commissions, to show the plebs that it is Just Like Them.
