Not expecting Meghan's half-siblings and I do believe that Tom Sr. will most definitely be there. The only reason that I could think of for an absence would be a health related issue that prohibits him from flying from Mexico to the UK.

Now that is a definite possibility. He seems to live such a quiet and reclusive life you have to wonder if there is a reason other than being as far away from his loving son and elder daughter.

Its just very possible that after years of being around the entertainment field and all the hustle and bustle of life, he's chosen to live simply with as less interruptions as possible and enjoy just being.

I know that feeling well. Thirty years ago I couldn't have imagined not having places to go and people to see and checking a watch to see if I'm late for something. Today I live as a simple homebody with my books and my internet and have no clue if my watch battery has run out or not. Less hassles and no stress does a body good.

KP is doing no comment on the guest list for now. But brace yourself for Samantha claiming her family is being abandoned, that she didn't get an invitation, and spill the beans about the correspondent gig if there is one.
The only person to say Meghan's dad was mad at what Harry said was habitual liar Tom Jr. So anything based on what Tom Jr says is highly suspect. Sounds like the source is Tom Jr. trying to hock is storlies anonymously.

Tom Jr and Samantha run their mouth just to get attention from the press. I don't take anything they say seriously because it is clear they have an axe to grind. They have made it beyond clear.

I fully expect Tom Sr to be at the wedding unless something physically prevents him.

This writer's assessment of Ninaki Priddy is spot-on. I guess Ms. Priddy will be glued to her television set on May 19th instead of being in the congregation at St. George's Chapel as a former old and dear friend:

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/507585...kiss-and-tell/

"Ninaki Priddy's reminiscences suggest a friendship where she basked in the reflected beauty, vivaciousness and glory of [Meghan] seeing her achieve her lifelong ambition to become a famous actress ... And now, of course, Meghan has met a real-life prince who is besotted by her... Ninaki’s 'curator of a beautiful life' remark [about Meghan] harbours a whiff of the deeply corrosive emotion that is jealousy."

A video from an Australian news show discussing rumors that Meghan's Dad may be too sick to travel to London for her wedding:

I don’t know why but from day one I never had the feeling he’d be there. Then when I read he’s never even met Harry that cinched it for me.


Maybe it’s health related. Maybe he just doesn’t like traveling.

Until this rumor has some credibility I can sink my teeth into, I'm ignoring rumors.

I do hope her father is there because she clearly cares deeply for him. However, I did not see him in any of the photos from her first wedding, and he seems to have chosen a very reclusive life in retirement. Unlike his 2 older children he seems to avoid any part of the limelight. The press stalking him at his residence in Mexico (as they do w/ Doria in LA) was inexcusable IMO.

Her first marriage was a casual beach party event. Not a big family wedding. Its not any sign that Tom may or may not attend her second. A big formal church wedding, not just a royal one, is a very different situation.

He and Doria have not sought the limelight as they respect their daughter. And they respect her privacy. Unlike Samantha and her brother.

You know this for sure? How? Can you provide sources?

I think it’s pretty obvious that her Father will walk her down the aisle. It’s just that her Mother and Father have to make it over to Britain for the wedding rehearsals. If he’s ill, perhaps Charles or William will do the honor of walking her down the aisle. I just don’t think we have to worry about that though. Her Father will be there.

I'm just not going to assume anything until there's an official release of information. I do think that Meghan's dad will most probably be there and walk her down the aisle but that's just me assuming how things might be. If Tom, Sr. isn't able to make it, my vote would be for Doria to walk her daughter down the aisle. Its also quite possible that Meghan could chose to walk solo down the aisle by herself. That scenario wouldn't surprise me either.

it occurred to me how similar meghan's profile is to wallis simpson's, that of an american divorcee, and that it was only in 2002 that the anglican faith, which the queen is head of, only allowed then that divorced people were able to remarry if their ex-spouse was still alive. had this happened in the 30s, harry would have probably removed himself from the line of succession in order to marry, and had this been only 15 years ago, they wouldn't have been able to marry at all.

That's why Anne chose to remarry in Scotland, so the BRF has been creative before to avoid such an issue even though the queen is the head of the CoE.

Actually, there are differences. If the situations were truly alike, itís unlikely that Meghan and Harry would be allowed to marry in CoE even today. While the rules have changed to allow some remarriage, there are still limitations. Based on this Archbishop of Canterbury, he might choose not to marry them had Harry been a party to Meghanís divorce, which was the case for Edward and Wallis. And Margaret and Peter Townsend. And of course, Charles and Camilla. Bottom line is Meghanís case is the least likely to be blocked from remarrying in the church as long as itís allowed. Charles and Camilla couldíve as the rules were already changed, but the fact that they had an affair during their marriages is a sticky point.

I believe Mr Markle senior has the fortitude to travel to the Uk and walk his daughter down the isle. It will be a simple matter to seclude him and Doria in Windsor Castle a few days before the wedding being looked after by the Royal Household and spending time with their daughter and Harry. Neither of them will be bothered by the press if they stay at the Castle. This wedding should be a wonderful time in all their lives.
