Thomas Markle, 73, said he would no longer be attending his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry on Saturday, where he was supposed to be taking a starring role to support her.

Thomas Markle will not attend the wedding over the way his decision to have staged paparazzi photos taken of him preparing for the wedding has been received and chose to miss the wedding to avoid embarrassing his daughter and the royal family, TMZ reports.

The former lighting director was due to meet the Queen with Meghan's mother in the days leading up to the wedding being staged at St George's Chapel at the castle.

The palace refused to confirm whether her father would be attending the wedding on Saturday.

Kensington Palace issued a statement Monday following a report Meghan Markle's father wont attend her wedding to Prince Harry. "He feels that anyone who gets associated with his life - this is the price they have to pay".

Photos showed Meghan's Tracy Dooley - the ex-wife of Meghan's half-brother Thomas Markle Jr - and her sons, Tyler and Thomas, arriving at Heathrow Airport on Monday.

But he appears determined to make his daughter's big day and told TMZ if doctors discharge him from hospital he will travel to England. Speculation begins as to whether Meghan will keep her father in the wedding party, or if he will be invited at all. "Ever since Meg's relationship with Harry was made public two years ago, we have lived our once normal lives under the spotlight every second", he told the Daily Mail.

According to In Touch Weekly, Thomas wrote a letter to Prince Harry in April saying it's "not too late" to call off the wedding.

According to Vanity Fair, sources close to Meghan expect that her mother Doria Ragland will now walk her daughter down the aisle.

She also didn't blame him for the staged photos. He says she harbors no ill feelings toward him for making a deal with a paparazzi agency to stage photos of him getting ready for the wedding.

Dooley, 25, yesterday said his granddad had suggested only on Sunday that he would be at the wedding.

The poll by polling firm YouGov showed that 57 percent of respondents believed the royal family should pay not only for the wedding but also for the costs of police.

In the early days when Meghan would come to stay at the palace, she was met by guards who would take her bags.

Thomas, who is spending his retirement in Mexico, met Prince Harry during a trip to Toronto, Canada, in 2016 and was apparently won over by the royal. Of course you want them to be glamorous and special, but they're doing that in a very modern way.

Grant denied that her father would apologize for the fake pictures.
