I would take the claim on some of Samantha just being resentful due to the second family thing but she has actually said some racist nonsense on her twitter. People aren't just pulling it out of nowhere. Her own family have said this about her.

And update...

Thomas Sr has one again gone to TMZ and said he wants to walk her down the aisle but he is currently in the hospital.

Wow.

It was said by who, a reliable source or Meghan's friends trying to discredit (not hard to do) Sam? Besides, even if true it doesn't negate the fact that this dynamic has gone on since forever, it's roots are not in racism but in human weakness in general imo.

Oh my gosh--I was thinking this too! Why else the dramatic change now from very blonde to dark brunette?

I hope he stays home at this point. It is just too much. He in the hospital and wants to travel to be in the middle of chaos with heart issues? No. Stay home.

With four more days to go, who knows what else might come out!

Why are you blaming Harry and Meghan for the actions of Meghan's relatives? None of it is a reflection on either of them nor should it affect any role they take on for the BRF.

"Pippa Middleton lacked class when she kept on and on writing about her derriere..." I think you have confused Pippa with the tabloid press.

Re TMZ, I am sorry but unless you are a ‘WILLING’ participant there is only so much the paps or media can badger you for interviews. And in the case of certain Markles, they put themselves right out there from the start touting for attention.

With so many media sources claiming the Markle Sr. Pap shenanigans was already an open secret, it still baffles me why he would deliberately deceive Harry/Palace reps and went on with his scam despite knowing they were confronting the media on his behalf. They went to bat for him and were made to look like fools. That is just low

I am starting to think Samantha behind these TMZ press releases.

I just feel sorry for the woman because sha has MS. Believe me, it's not an easy illness to deal with.

About the update...please, make it stop. Can this get any more ridiculous??

Now that I think about it...How didn't MM and KP realize the pictures were fake? Mr. Markle being "measured by a tailor"??? His suit is probably being made in Saville Row and then fitted in the two days preceding the wedding... I think everybody knew and hoped it wouldn't come out...

Henry VIII executed his second wife a week and a half before he married his third. And he married (and impregnated) said second wife a few months before his first marriage was annulled. Plus the whole debacle with his fourth wife, who he decided he didn’t like on his wedding day... and his fifth wife, who he married less than a month after annulling his marriage to his fourth wife...

Absolutely!
NEVER pay off a blackmailer!

Once they smell blood in the water, it's worse than ever.
The only response is to say Go ahead and publish! There isn't really much they can say about a woman they haven't seen in years.

As for Markle Sr., NOW he is reconsidering?
And what would make him change his mind and participate, I wonder?

I thought he might be using this as a bargaining tool, and now I am convinced he has his own agenda.

I hope he stays away.

What doesn't sound right is Tom, Sr. being in the hospital with heart trouble and doctors scheduling tests and monitoring his health. I seriously don't think the first thing on his mind would be to call TMZ with an update. How is it possible that he can talk to his daughter, work things out for the wedding and still feel the need to blab to the media.

What's wrong with this picture?

I hope Markle Sr doesn't come.. hasn't he created ENOUGH pain/trouble/disruption/uncertainty for all concerned ALREADY ?

He would be a real 'spectre at the feast'...at this point.

I can't even....this is a mess. Her father needs to just shut the heck up. Zip it. No one needs to know except the bride/groom. If he's there we'll see him.

Now.... wait for it.... Daddy can go to the wedding but Daddy needs assistance so that job falls to his eldest daughter who will be accompanying him throughout his stay in the UK.

So this is now the third time Thomas has gone to TMZ and spilled the family business. SMH. It feels incredibly manipulative for him to keep running to the press to discuss this. At this point, I think it's best that he stay away from the wedding.

If he just had a heart attack, he is in no condition to take an intercontinental flight and sit through a wedding in Windsor.

How was that a laid back feel? It involved a lot of important people. The only thing that was more toned down was the bride's dress. And whether or not someone is down to earth has nothing to do with if they can have a big wedding. They've adjusted the guest list to not include any politicians or dignitaries and instead focus on the causes and charities. Prince Harry will not be king, but he has a very high profile as a working royal, and the celebration of his wedding will reflect his role.
