Yesterday, The Daily Express reported that the Queen and Prince Philip were "very angry" with Meghan Markle's father, Thomas, for staging paparazzi photos and not being able to attend the royal wedding. But that might not be exactly true. Palace sources later denied the news to the Express' royal reporter Richard Palmer.
Our front page is being updated with the latest claims that Thomas Markle faces major heart surgery tomorrow, although it’s not clear he is in hospital as reported. The claim that the Queen is “very angry” is not my story. Palace sources have denied it. https://t.co/FAoBCOp2xs- Richard Palmer (@RoyalReporter) May 15, 2018
Royal correspondent Victoria Arbiter also commented on the reports. "I don’t think she’d be remotely 'angry' at Meghan over this whole mess," she tweeted. "Rather she’d feel desperately sorry for her as we all should."
Some seem to think the Queen has a heart of stone. I don’t think she’d be remotely “angry” at Meghan over this whole mess. Rather she’d feel desperately sorry for her as we all should. #royalwedding- Victoria Arbiter (@victoriaarbiter) May 16, 2018
No Royals vs. Markles family feud to see here.
Though the royal family hasn't directly responded to the latest news that Meghan's dad will miss the May 19 ceremony, a Kensington Palace spokesperson addressed reports earlier this week with the following statement:
"This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation."
The bride-to-be hasn't spoken publicly about the situation either, but Thomas Markle told TMZ that his daughter reached out to him on Monday via text, saying she loves him and is concerned for his health.
