Kensington Palace Releases Statement on Thomas Markle Skipping Royal Wedding

The Palace has released a statement on the situation surrounding Meghan Markle‘s father, Thomas Markle, skipping the Royal Wedding this Saturday (May 19).

If you missed it, Thomas suffered a heart attack, and checked himself out of the hospital with the intent of going to the wedding. However, the backlash surrounding the staged photos he took caused him to ultimately decide to skip the wedding.

“This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation,” the statement from the Palace read (via The Guardian).

    Meghan’s family is trash. I can’t believe the Queen gave her blessing.

  • Stoni

    Meghan = dog abandoner

  • Kat

    Her “family ” puts dysfonctionnal families everywhere to shame. She is ashamed I think who wouldnt be. They have nothing in common but everyonr wants a piece of her. Even her father sold her out. Sad she seems like a nice girl she doesnt deserve that kind of treatment.

  • Just Saying

    lamo marrying her will be his biggest mistake, it already is an embarrassment to the royal family, I’m surprised the queen gave her blessing but I wouldn’t be surprised if Meghan died in an ‘accident’ like Diana did.

  • Aimee

    Oh get over it loser

  • cuzjcacjo

    trashy woman. good luck to him.

  • Drew

    Good thing nobody cares what an anonymous troll on JJ thinks about anything lol. Like seriously, who are you again??

  • Drew

    Who cares what you believe about anything?

  • Nova

    The royal family has had plenty of their own scandals. They are probably just happy that the attention is not on them for once. Their blood isn’t any bluer than mine. Look, Prince Charles is married to a horse. She looks a bit better with her plastic surgery but back 20 years ago, Camilla was rough.

    What a completely crass woman. He’s you FATHER, and you dont even have the decency to see him after he suffers a heart attack?!

    But you intent to get married instead???

    “days before her wedding” thats your priority?! This is “deeply personal” then why are you marrying into one of the most public institutions?!

    I get that your family is dysfunctional, but what is YOUR excuse? Because you should have been diplomatic about this and been a daughter.

    You can postpone it to go take care of your father and no one would ever begrudge you! But you do this instead…My God I am starting to see what people have been saying about Meghan. I did not think she could be this petty.

  • DEADP00L

    That doesn’t mean she should treat him like this. Even Jolie at least cared for her father form a far even though he did so much worse than Meghan’s dad has. It was because of him that Maddox almost never got adopted because he went on TV to publicly call her unstable. She stopped talking to him but she never did this to him.

    Meghan is being petty.

    What a trainwreck.

  • LaurieCat

    Probably Queen Elizabeth’s secret account, that poor old witch needs to vent her frustration about Harry marrying that monkey.

  • SquidBillie

    Newsflash: Do you have any idea how crass some of the royal family members are?

  • SquidBillie

    The royal family has done enough to embarrass themselves over the years. All of these self-righteous commenters here are pathetic.

  • SquidBillie

    Most of the women in the family look like horses.

  • SquidBillie

    Almost as trashy as the royals. They just have alot more money. Most of them are racist bigots, too.

  • KS_in_TP

  • LaurieCat

    It’s because of all that inbreeding.
