Meghan Markle's sister Samantha: 'Staged pictures of dad were my idea'

Meghan Markle's sister Samantha: 'Staged pictures of dad were my idea'

Some of Meghan Markle's Suits costars have arrived in Europe ahead of the actress' upcoming wedding to Prince Harry.

CNN also contacted General Hospital in Rosarito, Mexico, where Markle is thought to have stayed previously, but officials would not say whether he is there.

They will be pulling the couple's carriage of choice an Ascot Landau along with another four horses during the procession.

Kensington Palace did not confirm whether he had pulled out of the wedding at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, but its brief statement hinted all was not well.

Almost two weeks ago, Kensington Palace confirmed that the former lighting director in Hollywood ― who now lives a low-key life in Rosarito, Mexico ― would be walking his daughter down the aisle on May 19.

Will Meghan Markle's father be at her wedding this Saturday to walk his daughter down the aisle? "So, mortifying for the royal family, enraging for Meghan Markle".

Prince Harry got down on bended knee while the couple was cooking a roast chicken for an oh-so-British roast dinner.

Samantha Grant said she had suggested her father pose for "positive" photographs.

There are now doubts about whether Thomas Markle plans to attend Saturday's royal wedding between his daughter and Prince Harry.

He told TMZ he did not want to embarrass his daughter or the royal family after reports he had staged pictures with a paparazzi photographer for a fee.

Department of Justice said about $700 million had been siphoned off from 1MDB and had gone to Najib's bank accounts. Anwar's prison sentence ends June 8, but without a royal pardon he would be barred from politics for five years.

"The bad press over my father doing staged photos is my fault", she said, according to tweets seen by the BBC.

Harry saves the lion from being shot - we later learn he thinks it wasn't a lion, but really his mother - and the boy (sort of?) comes of age in the film just as Meghan herself is also growing up, a world away.

TMZ said Thomas Markle was upset over the way his decision to have staged paparazzi photos taken of him preparing for the wedding has been received and chose to miss the wedding to avoid embarrassing his daughter and the royal family.

He allegedly claimed he had not done it for money, but to improve his image after a series of unflattering photos were taken. In the months leading up to the wedding, photos were published of Markle looking dishevelled and buying beers - which he says were actually for his employees. The reason for opting out of the royal wedding as stated by Thomas was that he suffered from a heart attack, a week ago.

In her ITV interview Monday, Samantha Markle accused the media of taking advantage of Thomas Markle, noting that their father, who is 73 years old, is "a bit more fragile".

Samantha and her brother Thomas Jr. I feel that the media have unfairly preyed on him.

They all are set to be "special correspondents" on Good Morning Britain.

The 30-year-old then took it further and asked why he would invite her to his wedding when they only meet once.

"Of course I'd walk her down the aisle".
