Royal wedding: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to feature on new stamps

"She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation". While Markle's mother Doria Ragland's role in the royal wedding was originally supposed to comprise riding with the actress from the hotel where they'll stay the night before the wedding to St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, Ragland is now rumored to be the one to accompany Markle down the aisle.

Kensington Palace did not confirm that Mr Markle would be missing the wedding, but issued a statement asking for understanding.

Prince Harry's future father-in-law, Thomas Markle, 73, made the shock decision on Monday not to fly over to the United Kingdom for the wedding at Windsor Castle on Saturday, after suffering a reported heart attack in the wake of a scandal surrounding photos he'd staged for the paparazzi.

Meghan Markle is estranged from her half-sister, who has not been expected to attend the nuptials, and from her half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr.

The Mail on Sunday, a British media outlet, published photos and a surveillance video that it claims show Markle Sr., a former lighting director in Hollywood, staging photos in Rosarito, Mexico, where he now lives. As a result, Thomas toldTMZ that he will no longer be attending the wedding, where he was set to walk his daughter down the aisle. Markle is reportedly said to be devastated at the prospect that her father might not attend her wedding. He also says he had a heart attack last week and is experiencing more chest pains, suggesting he might be too ill to travel.

A source added that Meghan's mother will reportedly walk her down the aisle on Saturday.

Earlier, she tweeted to say it had been her idea for Mr Markle to pose for what she described as "positive photos" to try to combat his "bad" portrayal in the press, but said it was not done for money. She said the media had "raked him over the coals" and "distorted his image".

As for the Queen being upset with him, Thomas scoffed, saying, "I don't think the Queen is thinking about what I'm doing". As we know the media can take very unflattering photographs of people on their casual days and blow it way out of proportion.

"Actually she has a large family who were always there with her and for her", Ms Grant responded on Twitter.
