This is a hot mess. I'm going to wait for KP. I find it highly unusual that if the decision has been made, KP is not the one announcing it rather he went to a place like TMZ. I don't know how much I believe the heart attack BS. If you had a heart attack, you simply don't travel overseas. Period. Not because of the mess created by the photo gate. You don't check yourself out of a hospital after a heart attack and expect to make it through a transatlantic flight alive.

This is the perfect example of digging the hole deeper. It's bad enough what happened, but publications have mostly moved on from it. The best thing would've just been to keep quiet and carry on. Now this is going to suck up more airtime.

Again, if he really talked to them. It just emphasize my point that it's not necessarily Meghan can't trust her father not to intentionally hurt her, but you simply can't trust people with bad judgment.

Maybe they don't want the Paparazzi's to know -

He was probably disinvited.

Well this is turning into a train wreck...

I was going to hold off on commenting because I doubt TMZ's veracity but it seems other outlets have caught on and are carrying the story. Makes me think there's some truth to him not being there on Saturday, regardless of the reason.

The pap pics were a hot ass mess and I doubt Meghan has a great relationship with him, but good enough to want him to walk her down the aisle. Disinviting him seems strange to me. Not wanting to cause any embarrasment to the BRF? They've had enough of that themselves and they have little room to talk. Here is the man who once dressed as a Nazi and got pictured naked in Vegas marrying the daughter of a man who staged a few pics. What a shocker. They should be able to handle Meghan's father.

Kensington Palace better do some damage control.

I’m sorry to say but I think saying he had a heart attack is excuse.

This whole thing just doesn't make sense. This wouldn't just be over the photos. It's disappointing, but I think it is worth noting that he hasn't talked to the media about his daughter and her life.

And I just don't see KP sitting on this if the decision has been made. They'd want to get in front of the narrative. Everything about the wedding has been controlled in terms of what and when they are telling the media.

Honestly, if a father can't get his **** together the week of his daughter's wedding, especially when the entire world is watching, she's better off without him.

That's what I thought too Rudolph. Makes the most sense.

Sigh. More and more sites have caught on.

It seems, heart attack or not, Thomas will not be there on Saturday. Poor Meghan...to have to worry about all this at the eleventh hour when she should be spending time with family and friends and introducing her fiance to her nearest and dearest.

Whoa, this is....not good.

If the poor guy did have a heart attack (which actually, the purchase of the Gas-X could tend to support since sometimes someone thinks they have heartburn but it's really a heart attack)I feel really sorry for him and for Meghan.

If true, it sounds a though he may have let the press get to him. If he wanted to back out, why on earth didn't he just let Meghan know and let KP handle it?

Good lord! When will this family stop embarrassing Meghan? Hasn’t she been through enough?

Do we think this came from Markle Sr or was he told he couldn’t attend from higher ups in the family?

I initially thought is said he was uninvited after photo gate scanning the report, but now reading it again, it seems like it's his decision?

If that's the case, he better understand that making this decision at this point pretty much means that he'll be out of his daughter's life for good.

I feel for the man, I do not think he had any malicious intent. And itís clear that he could not handle the pressure. I hope he takes the time to look after his health. But why in Godís name did he go to TMZ???? Why not let the Palace handle this? Had he learned nothing?

But I just know this isnít a good look for Meghan. On other boards, they are already blaming her and claiming she doesnít care about her father or his health. Itís not fair.

I can't imagine the Palace dis inviting him. The British stiff upper lip and get on with it attitude and all that.

I wonder if 1) Kensington Palace will confirm that he is not attending 2) Doria will walk Meghan down the aisle or 3) she will down the aisle by herself.

Goodness...if he did have a heart attack for real than I wish him a speedy recovery. If this is an attempt to avoid the world because of the pap pics than this will make the press even more interested in him once he returns to Mexico.

IMO just another example of why Harry was right in implying that Meghan has not had a real family other than her mother. You have Sam suggesting that she is to blame for the pap shoot with Dad....why would she think that was a good idea? And now she is implying that she can't come over because of her wheelchair. So apparently she is not going to be an adviser to a British show.

What a mess! I am not sure if its on purpose but their actions in the weeks up to her wedding are just horrible.

It's being reported that KP says no comment. Wonder if Meghan was even clued in on this.

Honestly, I don't feel bad for him because a lot of this had to do with his own bad judgment. I still think that the photo gate itself is forgivable, albeit stupid. I did sympathize with the fact that he is a private man who clearly chose to lead a very private and simple life, and all of sudden that's gone. But this latest decision is simply unforgivable.

He certainly won't have been uninvited 'by the Palace'.. He is Ms Markle's father for Heavens sake, and they wouldn't behave toward HER in such a manner..

IF he doesn't attend it is either HIS decision, or his daughter's..

I really feel for Meghan. During a week where she is supposed to be celebrating, she has to deal with this mess.

And I'm sorry but I don't buy her dad's excuse about how he felt there was no harm in working with the paps. KP went to bat for him and asked that the media leave him alone and he's out here making money off of pap photos. Such a deep betrayal.

I hope Doria walks Meghan down the aisle.

I really, truly cannot believe the Markles. They have done everything in their admittedly limited power to embarrass Meghan, intentionally and perhaps, not so intentionally but embarrass her they have.

Does this mean she walks down the aisle alone? As modern as some of the details of this wedding will be, I don't see a Royal bride being walked down the aisle by her mother anytime soon.

It's looking more and more like his decision. Meghan would not do this without a warning to KP staff. Emily Andrews is reporting that there has been no comment when reached for comment and it's a shock to them.

I'm sure she can have someone she's close to to do the honors if she wanted. Unlike some of her family, most of her friends seem to have good judgment and doesn't go embarrass her on the world stage.
