Something isn't right. I think KP's statement said a lot. I'm just going to pray for all involved and leave it at that.

This gave him a way out. I believe he has issues we know nothing about. Sad way for it to end.
Yup, you know I've been right there with you Rudolph, I wasn't buying that he was walking Meghan down the aisle from the moment KP announced he would. I think Sr knew he wasn't going, he might have even been invited at the last minute. Now he's showing the world just how broken Meghan's family relationships are.

He may have colluded with Sam & Jr, it certainly seems they're doing everything in their power to undermine Meghan. Whose family acts like that? It's really a sick dynamic, don't think I've ever heard of such carrying on and I've known some reeeealy disfunctional families. smh

Yup. I'm backing way off my previous criticism of Thomas Sr. There's something potentially tragic going on, and I think it's time to wait and see what happens, and just hope for the best for all involved.

I also think Doria should walk her down the aisle. Contrary to the other posters, I don’t think Meghan cares about her father giving her away, She got married once and her father was not there, and it was no big deal for her. I think she felt pressured to ask her dad to give her away because it is tradition and the RF is very traditional. The wedding ceremony was already going to be “different” anyway though ( with the gospel choir, the teenage cellist, the American bishop, etc.) . Walking down the aisle with her mother would be just another innovation and possibly something that would be far more meaningful to Meghan than being escorted by her estranged dad whom she has rarely seen In recent times and to whom she has not even introduced her future husband.

Missy, I was surprised also that no florist included not even ONE PEONY. Peonies had been declared to be Meghan's favorite flower.

Is it true Doria is still in LA? TMZ has pics of her they claim are from today.

I would have thought she would be in London by now. Even if she leaves tonight, that is less than four days to recover from jetlag.

For goodness' sake, there has been no reputable reporting on if he was at her last wedding. This was all speculation online because there wasn't a photo of him of the ones sold. However, none of the photos sold were from the ceremony itself, just the parties.

Prince Harry could let more emphasis be put on the bride if he stayed at Windsor Castle. After all, Windsor Castle is his grandmother's castle.

Me as well. I criticized Thomas Sr too initially but now realize we can't know what is going on behind the scenes (and are unlikely to ever know). I hope things are more peaceful soon.

KP announced that he will be walking Meghan down the aisle. You tell me if that means he was invited. And Samantha has maintained since the invitations were announced as sent that none of the Markles, including her dad, was invited. She was WRONG.

KP released a statement saying, that he would walk Meghan down the aisle. Along with a lot of other wedding info.

I wish Meghan had someone who could go to Mexico and travel to the UK with him. I wonder if she would go to him herself. I'm sure she is swamped with preparations. Maybe one of her friends or even her mother could accompany him. So heartbreaking

I was thinking about this as well. I just don't know who her dad would trust and feel comfortable with. For most people it would be a relative or close family friend offering support but this family... there seems to be no one reliable. Maybe Samantha's two oldest children, but we don't know if they have any relationship with their grandfather or would be willing to be involved in this mess.

If he's really had a heart attack and is experiencing chest pains. He simply shouldn't be travelling.

Wow this was a lot to come home to. As the wedding draws closer, I avoid this thread, even when I check on the site on my breaks at times. It would take my break to even get through half the posts. Wow just finished catching up.

I am shocked and feel so sorry for Meghan. Not what she needs only five days before her wedding. Having expected her dad to give her away.

I actually hope Doria or no one gives her away. I don't get why Charles would. He isn't her family yet, not until after the wedding. He hasn't been in her life growing up. Its not the same as an Uncle or a family friend giving her away. He gave away Amanda Knatchbull but because he is best friends with her father and been in her life since birth (as well as family). Charles is at the wedding to support his son.

I have never wished heart issues on someone, but I do wish that Tom wasn't lying about this. That there were health issues. The truth about the photos are hard enough on Meghan. He should b willing to face the press for her.

As for Doria....Emily was denying that Doria was in the UK, this weekend. I would think she would be on her way now. Perhaps she decided with all the commotion and such going on, to wait to arrive.

The hotels they are staying at are beautiful. I love the one Meghan is staying at. I wonder if her female friends like Jessica may be staying there. Even if not bridesmaids, they may be with her in the morning to get ready. Could see them having a girls night there together the night before the wedding.

I can understand Harry at a hotel not at the castle. Windsor just has guest rooms, no apartments. With a lot of guests likely at the castle for the wedding, it would likely not be very private. Likely nice for Harry to have a night away on his own before his big vows.

Why would Thomas need an invitation to his own daughter's wedding? He is the father of the bride, not an uncle.

Whether she has ever been close is hard to say; as a young child she hopefully was. But not seeing your dad for a year and a half and not introducing your future husband to your father in person are clear signs of a not so close relationship. So, I would instead say that I haven't seen any evidence that they are close...

Edit: feel free to move to family thread. Not really appropriate here.

I haven't seen my father in three years, or my mother for that matter. Being in the same room doesn't denote closeness. Nor does being in the same room. As adults, our life/work/school and so on often cause physical distance. Meghan has made a point of saying her and Harry spoke to her father. And she has said they are close. Just because he wasn't willing to fly to Toronto for IG and be in the public spotlight, doesn't mean they aren't close.
