"She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation", the statement read. The source added that her relationship with her father has "always been strained" because of "his ill thought-out decisions and his lack of responsibility".

A photograph of her shaking the hand of a man with AIDS in 1987 did much to help to break down stigma around the illness - and her passion inspired Harry to carry on her work.

Royal wedding souvenirs date back to at least Queen Victoria's wedding to Prince Albert in 1840, and the industry is now huge: one estimate was that £222 million (NZD$434 million) was spent in the lead-up to Wills and Kate's 2011 wedding.

Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are requesting "understanding and respect" for Markle's father after a celebrity news site reported he would not be coming to the royal wedding to walk his daughter down the aisle, Kensington Palace said Monday night. While no one is saying what prompted the attack, Thomas Markle has been under considerable stress with all the attention focused on him, including news that he had allowed a paparazzo to stage photos of him getting ready for his Meghan's big day. But celebrity news website TMZ reported Monday that the elder Markle has chose to stay away amid criticism over his decision to pose for mocked up wedding-preparation shots taken by a paparazzi agency. Markle told the website he looked "stupid and hammy". "I have no idea".

On Tuesday, TMZ reported that Thomas Markle said that on reflection, he did want to come, if doctors release him from a hospital where he was undergoing tests after a heart attack. "Prince Philip walked Princess Margaret down the aisle for her wedding to Tony Armstrong Jones as George Vl had been dead for eight years".

"They don't photograph you buying vegetables and pH water, they photograph you in as unflattering ways as they can".

The website wrote: "He says since his daughter started dating Prince Harry he's been offered anywhere between $50,000 and $100,000 for interviews and he's turned all of them down".

It was quite the revelation - particularly considering the fact that Prince Harry had asked paparazzi photographers and the media to give Thomas space and privacy.

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

Samantha Markle also dismissed the idea that her father had been paid to take the photos. He is divorced from Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, who also is planning on traveling with her daughter to the wedding.

The venue (36 percent), the number of guests (28 percent) and their wedding hairstyle (25 percent) were other aspects that former brides wish they could have done differently. "I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends with Meghan". "So I suggested it".
