    I don’t think Meghan, Harry and their PR team are telling the whole truth. There was never a heart attack, imo. Either he was really never invited (like some people/reports claimed) or he was disinvited yesterday by Meghan because of the staged photos.

    Of course he got disinvited! Probably a direct request from the queen, her family members are super trashy (her brother, sister and dad), I actually feel bad for Meghan, your 15 mins are over. Stop trying to make yourselves happen.

    Don’t forget her mom. She is also trash. Your comment about her 15 mins being over, is hilarious. It’s just starting for Meghan especially with the wedding coming up.

    Her mother is WORSE. She actually went to talk to Oprah.

    There is something very wrong here. I am not buying it. They did something to him to make him back out. No body backs out of their little girls wedding unless something really serious happened.

    Hopefully Meghan and Harry will get in their private plane and go pick up her father. Even if he does not want to walk her down the aisle because he’s embarrassed he can still go to their private reception.

    LOL you must be related to Meghan’s half siblings on the father side.

    How is going to see Oprah or even doing a interview with Oprah (which I assume will be shown after the marriage) be worse the Meghan’s half siblings writing mean letters to tabloids, writing a book with negative comments about Meghan and of course since the day she got engage whining about Meghan to anyone who will listen.
    It’s not worse. It doesn’t even come close. It’s you just being negative about Meghan.

    Meghan probably told her father to sit this one out and the Palace’s PR team spun the story and made it seem like it was his idea not to attend.

  • dee

    your probably very very right…so far ive only seen shit from her brother and sister and now her dad, im hoping the queen will put a stop to this though.

  • Sara

    Just goes to show you that getting a hot piece of @ss is more important to Harry than marrying a quality woman.
