Because the people selling it weren't mostly haven't seen Meghan as an adult. I'm not sure if we've seen a LOT of pictures of Meghan and her mom. Meghan posted very few herself. Some were sold from the parties at Jamaica, and the rest are from paparazzi shots in Toronto. No one is denying that Meghan probably doesn't see her father in person as much as her, given that her dad wasn't there as he is retired and spends his time mostly in Mexico. However, that's far from estranged or her and her mom against her dad. Especially given we know from the engagement interview that they do speak on the phone and Harry thought Meghan's dad is important enough in her life for him to ask for his blessings before proposing.

But it's troubling that some tend to trust those that betrayed Meghan more than Meghan's own words regarding her dad.

I haven't memorised everything i have seen and heard about H&M but i don't get the impression there is anything wrong with Meghans relationship with her Dad. Tom jnr said in his interview with channel 7 here that his dad will have to step up now - to walk her down the isle.
Well he better have his bags packed by the end of this week as I imagine Tom snr will need at least a week in London to attend Wedding Rehearsals with his daughter.

There is no way you can believe that actually would happen. Clearly their behavior proves that they will never stop using Meghan for a quick buck. All an invite would do is give them ammunition to talk about every detail of the wedding.

Harry and William had it right. They have their own "circle of trust" and as way to gain admittance to that circle, they would feed misinformation to "friends" to test and see just where that information went. If it was leaked, they knew who leaked it and no trust for that person. Its a survival mechanism in place to assure that they could and would have a private life of their own.

Most definitely Meghan's estranged (again with the emphasis on the strange) have proven time and time again that they don't belong in Meghan's circle of trust.

Other outlets are starting to pick up People's report that Tom Sr is going to the wedding. This report gave me a giggle:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bus...ff-8978694/amp

KP gave its no comment position for anything Markle. Jr can't be reached for comment now. A major US glossy just upended his Harry call off the wedding story and he's hiding out so he won't be in a position to explain his letter, especially the Dad's not invited part. In Touch Weekly has egg on its face for not checking out dad's perspective before running the story.

Embarrassing for all the outlets, that published that letter and did no double checking on facts.

They published it gleefully calling the letter extraordinary.....not one outlet questioned his reliability or his record of domestic abuse or his previous lies and flip flop of opinion. He was their weapon to use against Meghan. They all have egg on their faces.

I doubt that any of the outlets that published the letter are at all embarrassed. They published something that got lots of attention, and that's what most of them care about. Even if they publish a retraction or correction, most of the people who read those outlets won't pay attention to that, they'll just remember the salacious misinformation.

That's the way it works.

I am a little surprise that specially her mother goes the last week before the wedding, in her position, with all the money in the world, why didn't she had her mother with her for a month? I just wonder........I also Married in England and my family flew for the wedding, my mother came a week before and there is when she met my husband, but it was a money issue I would have love to have my mother for the hole month before the weeding
(my father died when I was 2, so my brother walked me down the aisle) and he came to meet my husband 6 month previous to the proposal.
Wonder why her father didn't meet Harry yet? He is retired with all the time in the world and I am sure Megan can pay for his flight....... I guess we all not have the same values of families.
Regarding his brother statement, he probably gets paid by the tabloids to talk nonsense......... not even worth of our time......

Meghan's mother actually works, and can't just take time off for months or even a month. I doubt it's a money issue.

I'm sure the tabloid press with their agenda will not change, but the fact remains they lie, they don't know what is going on.

The main press should now think twice before interviewing the half siblings who clearly lie and are paid to lie.

I KNOW how awful the tabloid press is and I know they won't change and their lies are what they feed their base readership.

Exactly...who knows what her Doria's leave situation is like. She might want to save some of it for a longer Thanksgiving/Christmas vacation.

And with all do respect Ashelen...I would imagine that you had a lot of things to do before your wedding to make sure everything was okay (fittings, flowers, running around and such). And your mother was of great assistance. Yeah, Meghan doesn't have to do all of that. She has do some but she isn't racing around Windsor meeting with the florist and the caterers

Doria has a career as a social worker and a case load. She is helping others and I'm sure does not want to be off work for a long period of time. Doria also has her own independent life not tied to her daughter. While Meghan lived in Toronto, Doria did things like run the LA Marathon. I think both Meghan and Doria are strong independent people.

So because Meghan didn't do what you did or what you think she should have done to prepare for her wedding, you question her family values?

Meghan and Harry are thousands of miles away from her parents. Her father is ailing, and I get the impression travelling all that way would be hard on him physically.

Meghan's mother actually has a job-she is likely taking vacation time to come to the wedding, you don't get extra vacation just because your daughter is marrying a prince.

Maybe Meghan's father doesn't particularly like to travel and sees no reason to take more than one trip overseas. There could be any number of valid reasons that Dad hasn't come to the UK to meet Harry.
