Meghan Markle’s father has said her mother should walk her down the aisle instead after he pulled out of the wedding at the last minute.
Thomas Markle believes his ex-wife Doria Ragland would be a ‘good choice’ to give their daughter away at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, after his shock decision not to fly to the UK.
But the troubled 73-year-old wants to stay in Mexico following reports that he colluded with a paparazzi photographer to stage a series of pictures in the run-up to the wedding and claims to have suffered a heart attack.
Meghan’s half-sister Samantha Markle, whose father has partially her for his illness, said today: ‘I spoke to him early in the morning and he was quite depressed’.
Doria is about to fly into the UK from Los Angeles to support her daughter and is now the clear favourite to walk her down the aisle in her father’s absence.
Prince Charles is 2/1 with the bookies to step in while Prince William is 5/1 to take Meghan into St George’s before starting his duties as Harry’s best man.
There have also been a flurry of bets on Meghan walking down the aisle alone.
