Regardless of whether you’re a royalist or not, one cannot deny that this weekend is huge for England as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be tying the knot on May 19, 2018, at Windsor Castle surrounded by the royal family.

However, when it comes to Meghan’s family, there have been several controversies doing its rounds.

Just recently, news broke out that Meghan’s father Thomas Markle, who was supposed to walk his daughter down the aisle has now dropped out of the wedding.

Apparently, the reason for opting out of the royal wedding as stated by Thomas was that he suffered from a heart attack, a week ago.

Thomas was planning on getting out of the hospital and attending his daughter’s wedding but then backed out as it was revealed that he had been involved in staged paparazzi photoshoots.

Now with Thomas out of the picture, there have been several speculations as to whom will be walking Meghan down the aisle.

If reports are to be believed, it could be Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland who will be staying at the hotel with the bride-to-be, the night before the royal wedding.

She will also be travelling with Meghan in the car as they head to St. George’s Chapel.

Kensington Palace issued a statement regarding Markle’s father opting out from attending the wedding which really read as:

“This is a deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this difficult situation.”
