Meghan Markle's father overshadows wedding to Prince Harry

Meghan Markle Prince Harry protective

Harry, grandson of Queen Elizabeth and sixth-in-line to the throne, and Markle, a star in U.S. TV drama "Suits", will tie the knot at Windsor Castle, home to the British royal family for almost 1,000 years.

Could she go one step further and walk her down the aisle?

A spokesperson for the palace declined to comment on the matter to HuffPost on Monday, though they later issued a statement after much speculation. TMZ claims Markle Sr. told them he believes the heart attack was brought on by an open letter his son Thomas Markle Jr., Markle's estranged half-brother, wrote to Harry last month, encouraging him to call off the wedding.

On Wednesday, TMZ reported that a heart procedure was performed on the former lighting director.

Kensington Palace's attempts to project a sense of serenity around the wedding preparations have been clouded by Markle's relatives, who have not been invited to Saturday's nuptials following stories of bust-ups, heavy drinking and an arrest.

Asked whether she would be happy for Ms Markle to return to the school, Ms Diekmann said: "That would be great".

Harry and Markle, who had remained out of the public eye in recent days, were spotted being driven onto the grounds of Windsor Castle on Thursday afternoon.

The royal wedding will have significant Canadian content.

Ford to resume F-150 production after supply plant fire
The plant, which employs about 8,100 hourly workers in all, has continued to make Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator SUVs. Ford also plans to get Super Duty assembly back up and running on Monday in Louisville, Kentucky.

Provided that Markle senior doesn't make to the ceremony, there are a number of possible replacements who can walk Meghan down the aisle instead.

May 13 - Reports say Thomas Markle staged paparazzi photos.

Prince Harry's press office said it had no additional comment beyond a statement made two days ago calling for "understanding and respect" for Markle's father, Thomas, "in this hard situation". In a second interview with TMZ, Thomas said Meghan had contacted him about the paparazzi photos, and their pleasant chat changed his mind about ditching the wedding.

Samantha has taken responsibility for making the arrangements and was on Good Morning Britain to defend her actions, describing the media as "vultures". He had to get the OK from his doctors to travel after his heart attack.

But on Tuesday, he also expressed his desire to still be part of Markle's wedding entourage. The reason, this time, is health-related.

And there you have it-for now.

I know, I know, we like the idea of Markle becoming a princess like in a Hollywood movie, but the way these royal designations work is complicated.

She is now reportedly set to have tea with The Queen, Prince William and the Duchess of Cornwall ahead of her daughter's wedding, where she will be playing the role of mother and father of the bride.
