It was announced that Meghan Markle’s father will not be walking her down the aisle after all. After a few unfortunate incidents, Thomas Markle announced that he will not be attending the Royal wedding amid speculations that he was probably asked not to attend and not the other way round. A few highly embarrassing pics emerged recently showing that Markle had actually collaborated with the paparazzi to stage some of the pics that we have seen lately. A couple of months ago some images were published showing Markle reading articles about his daughter in an internet cafe, while another pic showed him leafing through a book about Britain, and there was yet another pic showing him taking measurements for a tuxedo. Alas, it seems all these images were fakes.
However, Thomas Markle claimed that the real reason he will not be able to attend his daughter’s wedding is due to the fact that he has suffered a heart attack a few days ago. Kensington palace did not actually confirm this but they issued a statement saying “This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding.” Mr. Markle later said that he had meant no harm by staging these images, he only wanted to reset his image after some unflattering photographs of him were published. His daughter Samantha Grant claimed that she convinced him to do this because the media was “unfairly making him look bad”. This decision left people speculating as to who will walk the royal bride down the aisle now.
On a brighter note though, especially to the fans of SUITS, a few Instagram posts are giving us clues as to who among Meghan’s costars will actually attend the wedding. The biggest hint would be the post shared by Jacinda Barret (Gabriel Macht’s wife) as she sent out a Happy Mother’s Day wish via Instagram kissing her son in front of Buckingham Palace.
And another hint we picked up came from Sarah Rafferty who is Markle’s close friend and fellow Suits star as she has been posting pics of Paris, which is basically a train ride away from London. So if we’re hoping for a full SUITS reunion we may not get disappointed as Markle’s costars for the past six years are all confirmed guests at the wedding; Gabriel Macht, Patrick J Adam, Sarah Rafferty, Gina Torres and Rick Hoffman.
