Meghan Markle Just Issued a Statement on Her Father

by Bryce Gruber

We were all wondering

Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding dramas have unfolded before our very eyes this week, and we really feel for her. It’s hard enough to deal with the pressures of planning a big wedding, perfecting your bridal bouquet, selecting the greatest dress of all time, and managing all that comes with being head over heels in love without dealing with family… stuff. Unfortunately Meghan’s dealt with a lot of stuff this week, to the point where we were asking who would walk her down the aisle?

Well it turns out her dad will 100% NOT be walking her down the aisle. She released an official statement on the issue today. Kensington Palace published Markle’s words on their social media pages, which was a major move considering she’s never been allowed to release a statement of her own before.

“Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding,” wrote Markle. “I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health. I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you Saturday.”

Gush. Cry. So many emotions. We feel for you, dear Meghan!
