Poor Meghan, I hope she calls her Dad and asks him to come to the wedding.

Sometimes the own family can be your biggest enemy. (I have to say that my family has never ever been my biggest enemy. But I know families,....)

I don't.

Him changing his mind and coming at the last minute makes it even more so a frenzy. This should be the lead up to the happy week in his daughter's life and he has added to the stress of it. He is supposed to support her not stress her out.

Either you or in or you out.

I am not super close to my family. Until my grandmother passed my mother talked her everyday. That is just not me. But I am also not talking a lot to anyone else. And it bothered my mother at first that we didn't talk everyday but she knows its just me (now we talk everyday via email). But I love my mother and I would drop EVERYTHING if she needed me.

Sometimes families are just toxic and you need to cut them out of your life. Not everyone grows up with a Leave it to Beaver family.

Good point, I guess the run away father of the bride story is less toxic than the Monaco run away bride story!

Did you see all the luggage they brought? How long are they planning on staying?

As long as they possibly can, would be my guess.

Don't they have to go back to wherever they came from in the Northwest Pacific and take care of their drug business? That is their money machine besides Meghan.

Poor BRF? They have survived everything from Nazi in-laws(the DoE, Princess Michael) to massage parlor philanderers(Major Ronald Ferguson) and a few other messes in between.

The wildly dysfunctional Markle clan should be a piece of cake.

It's Meghan that I feel really, truly sad for. If she makes it through this wedding with her smile and her dignity intact she will have my eternal admiration and respect.

ETA: This kind of reminds me of Jacqueline Lee Bouvier finding her father drunk and passed out on the morning of her wedding to Senator John F. Kennedy. With the eyes of the entire countrys' media on her she had her stepfather do the honors. I hope Meghan has someone comparable who can be of assistance here.

What a nightmare for her and Harry.

How possible would it have been for Samantha to come up with this crazy plot to talk her dad into doing "positive" pictures for a photographer, set it all up with the photographer (she admits it was her idea and that she set this all up for him) with a deal that they hit the papers right before the wedding is to happen. Would she have figured on all the blow back from these pictures and how it could up end the wedding plans? Could she have been so determined to hit out at Meghan that she would set up her own father for a fall?

Something just isn't right here. My heart goes out to Meghan and Harry for this huge thundercloud hanging over their wedding.

That's an interesting theory--and fairly believable. She could hurt Meghan and her father this way,

Did no one think about how her family were going to react from the very beginning? It can't be a surprise to Meghan that her half-siblings were going to react like idiots, I have a feeling this is a long-running drama between the Markle side and Meghan & her mom. I don't understand why someone didn't just pay them off and make them sign a NDA? It would have saved everyone so much stress!

I feel really sorry for Meghan, no one deserves this sh** show of a family and she had no choice, she was born into it.

I'm not so sure that a NDA would work; very likely that they would talk and think about the backlash that would give: 'Meghan tries to silence her family member so must have something terrible to hide'.

Hey..its hard to turn away from a train wreck. People will tune it. Its like the awful articles in the Daily Fail, you know the article is rubbish, the comments simply horrible but the pictures are fantastic!

And goodness know what Piers might say to them. They apparently have no shame when they were confronted with the fact that they haven't spoken to Meghan in 10 years? So why not take a free trip to London?!

ETA: I wouldn't pay off the family either. That's rewarding them for bad behavior. I imagine that Meghan told the BRF and KP that she didnt' have a good relationship with her family but let's face it. This relationship is unprecedented. And she probably didn't think her family and friends (hey, Nikki is that you in the corner with your 30 pieces of silver) would sell her out as much as they did. I mean, the comments Sam made once it came out that she was dating Harry, the letters written to In Touch by her brother. Who would have thought it? Have you ever come across people like this? I have, in NOVELS. Not in real life.

Sam is so blatantly jealous of Meghan and her life and successes that she will do anything to cause trouble for Meghan. This is not going to be over once the wedding is done, oh no, Sam will target Meghan for life now in every thing she does and I will eat my hat here if Sam stops after the wedding.

Tom Sr needs to crawl back into that dirty hole in Mexico and not rear his head again for what he is a huge betrayal to his daughter that can not be forgiven ever. He lied, he sold pictures, he posed for pictures with the media, he broke every vows of being a good father to his child......Shame on this man and his other children for I hope Meghan will never have anything to do with her dad again......yet he is not the worst dad...he just needs to crawl back to his hole and stay there!
I'm not sure that it was Samantha. It is at least as likely imo that she is telling this story to try to get the attention back to her instead of her father. Not too hard to claim that you arranged something when nobody can check and your father might be glad that he can blame someone else (although he hasn't done that so far).

Her father is not some feeble guy who doesn't understand media stuff. Look at his job he did for years.
