Thomas Markle is reportedly not attending the royal wedding Saturday in the wake of a photo scandal. Just five days before the royal wedding, Meghan Markle's dad staged images of himself getting ready for his daughter's big day that were published around the globe.
Since the scandal broke, he reportedly will not attend the wedding or walk his daughter down the aisle, so as to not embarrass her further. Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Grant claims she is behind the photos.
