    I haven't seen a thread on this yet. I'd be watching but I'm working Saturday. I did stay up for the Prince William/Catherine Middleton wedding until about 5am but I was working PM shift and would be up until 3am anyway. Sorry, I thought the dress was a total bore.

    A lot has been in the news about Meghan Markle's family. But it's still two people getting married, famous or not, and it seems some of that family is trying to get their 15 minutes of fame.

    I also watched on You Tube recently some of the wedding videos from Princess Diana. That poor soul had only about 16 years to live at the time of her wedding. It seems sad now. I remember not really liking her dress at the time but I think it has stood the test of time. I know it wrinkled from the carriage ride. I think I read it was silk. All those poor silk worms.

    My interest in this upcoming wedding is mild but I'm interested in the highlights and what I miss on TV, I'll watch on the internet.

    Are you interested or not?

    That's too bad. I wonder if they will postpone the wedding?

    I heard about the heart attack. Also something about staged photos he supposedly did. This is all a bit strange.

    I believe coverage starts at 4am U.S. time. I don't know if that is Eastern or Pacific.

    Such a shame, there's not many people believe the heart attack story, more that since he feels he embarrassed his daughter with the staged pap photos....of course that's only conjecture, who knows what really happened, but the paps have been following him ( poor man)..and since his ''heart attack'' he's been spotted buying KFC..

    Here in the UK..many people are liking the marriage of a Royal family member to the Beverly hillbillies...

    If one were to believe everything we read in the media, meghan is a gold-digger, who has cut all her family off.. none of her family apart from her parents were invited to the family..and by the way they've behaved I'm not surprised .. ... today's lead story in the Media is that meghan is begging her father to give her away on Saturday... not sure I believe that tbh. I think if dad was to have been giving her away, he would have been flown to the UK by Meghan and PH, a couple of weeks ago ago in prep for the big day, this is no ordinary wedding where you can just turn up on the day ..I feel sorry for the man, really I do. he was living a quiet life in Mexico and suddenly hounded and thrown under the bus by the Paps who were the destruction of Harry's Mother.. Diana....

    Harry will be furious at this happening... I'm sure, but on the flip side, apparently in the 18months H & M have been together Harry has never met his soon to be F-I-L...makes you wonder why not..

    Yes I agree @Holly Saunders the truth is buried amongst all the usual fake news, I feel sorry for him too and wouldn't want to be in his position.
    They didn't invite me, so I left the country in protest ;)

    All I 'care' about is the couple themselves
    My belief regarding the father is that he can't take the stress and anxiety attending the wedding would bring him
    I hope he does go but with the media doing their usual thing :rolleyes: I doubt he'll attend

    I think the heart attack thing is a farce.
    The father probably is being paid good money for the publicity he is getting.
    Infact is an one in Megans family going to the wedding other than her mother ? I had read at one time most of family had not been invited. Who knows for sure.
    Unfortunately the couple has no real place to run and hide to.

    I wouldn't have invited my family either
    We have 'no' idea what the reason is regarding the father so I'll go with my thoughts on it
    I also believe the media has hounded this man
    The media has no influence over me

    That Beverly Hillbillies comment is just WOW. Though I'm not surprised people would put that spin on. My understanding is that Meghan is the only child her dad had with her mother. All the others being half siblings. Which doesn't matter really. Families can be close or not in all kinds of circumstances. I don't get the gold digger feeling from her. That probably was already played out by Sarah Ferguson.

    News flash! Just popped in on my newsfeed: Meghan Markle's father has changed his mind. Wants to walk her down the isle. Better get on a plane fast.

    He's in hospital at present
    The stress is surely getting to him, may be best if he doesn't go to the wedding

    To me, he doesn't look like a man who would be comfortable hobnobbing with kings, queens, princesses, princes and other high society nabobs. He looks like he would be more at home out in the back yard BBQing a chicken and drinking a tall cold beer.

    I'm sure he will be glad when all this is over and he can get back to his normal life.
