Then on Tuesday, he told TMZ, "I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle". The news of his planned absence came a day after a video emerged of him seemingly staging photos with paparazzi in Mexico.

Press photographers focus on Meghan Markle and she joins Britain's Prince Harry for a walkabout at Edinburgh Castle in February.

He had been scheduled to walk his daughter down the aisle, but said that he made the decision as he did not want to "embarrass" her. He's reportedly anxious he may be on the verge of another heart attack; the one he suffered last week was reportedly his second.

"I pity the guy", he said.

Markle has been involved in controversy since it was revealed he allegedly staged a series of photos captured by an American paparazzo.

His guest explained that her family, particularly her father Thomas, has been "suffering" at the hands of the media. "He is kind of brutal", she told Inside Edition.

Royal expert Victoria Arbiter discussed those scenarios with Inside Edition.

She added the situation will also be "incredibly difficult" for Meghan. She took full responsibility for setting up her father Thomas' fake photo shoot.

Meanwhile, Ms Markle's half-sister Samantha Grant, who has criticised the bride-to-be's relationship with her father's side of the family, reportedly tweeted that it was her suggestion that Mr Markle pose in the photoshoot.

"We have just focused on who we are as a couple", she said.

"I like to think he was drawn to her sweet eyes and her Afro, plus their shared love of antiques", wrote Meghan in an essay for ELLE UK on being mixed race.
