Father Controversy: Who Will Walk Meghan Down The Aisle?

The palace has already announced that Ms Markle is not having a maid of honour because she did not want to choose just one person from her close-knit group of friends.

Mr Markle, 73, has had a strained relationship with his daughter Meghan, periodically criticising the bride-to-be regularly.

'My mom's a yoga instructor, but she does social work, as well, and she works specifically with the geriatric community, ' Meghan wrote in an essay about the 10 women who changed her life for Glamour past year.

Doria Ragland, Meghan's mother, is the highest possibility according to the bookies, with 4/6 odds.

Mr Markle said Meghan was not upset after his staged paparazzi photos.

The website said Ms Markle had tried calling him on Monday and sent him a text saying she loved him and was concerned about his health.

"Lord Chamberlain, Her Majesty and the Duke are very angry with Meghan's father", a source told the outlet. "And there was my mom, caramel in complexion with her light-skinned baby in tow, being asked where my mother was since they assumed she was the nanny", wrote Meghan in the 2015 essay. "My son is getting married next year so I am much more sort of dealing with that but really I have nothing to say about it". "We all have these kinds of relatives tucked away somewhere in our families but those dramas are not dished up for public consumption".

Meghan Markle is "distressed" by news her father may not attend the wedding.

CNN has reached out to Thomas Markle for comment by phone and over email but has not yet received a response.

On Monday evening, London time, Kensington Palace released a statement, saying this was a "deeply personal moment" for Meghan and Harry, who are already dealing with vast pressure in the lead up to their wedding on Saturday. Kensington Palace, while neither confirming nor denying the report, soon released a statement that asked "for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this hard situation". Harry has yet to meet his fiance's father.

The three-year-old Princess Charlotte has been chosen as a bridesmaid by the couple while four-year-old Prince George is to be a page boy during the wedding on Saturday, May 19.

The palace shared images of the important document, which features emblems that have been created to represent both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Guests at the special gathering will include members of various patronages, military affiliations, and charity organisations, while the event, held on the first anniversary of the terror attack at Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester, England, will also pay tribute to the emergency service personnel who responded to the tragedy, which cost 23 fans their lives.
