Queen Elizabeth Wasn’t Happy With Meghan Markle’s Dad Over Stage Photos
Apparently, Meghan’s Dad staged a photo op (directed by his other daughter) for paparazzi for a whopping $100,000. Once it was discovered it was all staged, he decided not to come to the royal wedding as to not embarrass Meghan.
Now, Meghan’s grandmother-in-law, the Queen of England, isn’t very happy.
“Lord Chamberlain, Her Majesty and the Duke are very angry with Meghan’s father,” a source told the Daily Express. “They will speak to him once he arrives about the royal protocol.”
The royals are “worried” about the father of the bride, said the source, “because of those photos.”
“This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said Monday. “She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.”
“This is not what she wants. She obviously wants her dad there,” a friend of the bride-to-be told the Daily Mail. “She and Prince Harry are begging for people to give him some space. They have been saying this for weeks, while trying to offer him support and help. He is clearly feeling under immense pressure. The concern for him is real and genuine.”
