"She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation", the statement read. He's reportedly anxious he may be on the verge of another heart attack; the one he suffered last week was reportedly his second. Meghan will be walking down the aisle on May 19th at the Windsor Castle. This is a historic moment. "I'd like to be a part of history".
BA also said any passengers named Harry, Meghan or Megan flying on Saturday will be allowed to use its first-class lounge and all customers on the day will be given lemon and elderflower Victoria sponges, the same flavour as the royal couple's wedding cake.
Of course, Thomas Markle's decision could still change, so here's a rundown of everything that's happened so far. Even worse, this footage came soon after Kensington Palace had asked photographers and journalists to "respect" Thomas Markle's privacy and stop pursuing him.
Kensington Palace, the official residence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, issued a statement late Monday following the allegations that Markle's father, who lives in Mexico, had pulled out of the wedding. She said the media had "raked him over the coals" and "distorted his image". It was rumored that Ragland would walk her daughter down the aisle back in January, when the royal couple first announced their engagement. "Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion".
Markle senior said he had not heard from his daughter since the revelations broke, and that her mother - his ex-wife Doria Ragland - would be a good choice to walk her down the aisle in his place, according to the website.

Prince Harry is also devastated and blames himself, according the report.
The last time Meghan was seen with her mum was at the closing ceremonies of the Invictus Games in Toronto in September previous year. The newspaper printed photographs which it claimed showed Markle and the photographer entering the cafe together.
He is reported to have said that he did not want to cause his daughter embarrassment by attending the wedding. "He admits the pics look 'stupid and hammy.' He says he was just going along with the paparazzi agency, which he now deeply regrets". He also said that he had suffered a heart attack a week earlier. Whoa. Weddings are usually a hectic time, full of stress and headaches, but this royal wedding is one royal mess.
BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said he understood Markle, 36, was distressed and concerned for the well-being of her father, who has been described as a rather shy and reclusive figure.
