Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were reportedly in tears days before their royal wedding.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot in a grand celebration on May 19, 2018. However, a report from The Sun claimed that two days before their big day, Prince Harry and Markle were “sobbing” and “in flows of tears” due to the bride’s father.

Markle’s dad Thomas Markle Sr canceled his attendance at the event because he got a major heart surgery. He was supposed to walk Markle down the aisle.

But prior to that, Markle Sr. was embroiled in a series of staged paparazzi photos. He reportedly accepted cash for it. Markle’s half-sister Samantha Markle insisted that they did it with good intentions. They only wanted to improve Markle’s dad’s reputation through the media.

“They were both in tears at what is going on with Meghan’s father in America,” a courtier said.

The bride and groom reportedly pleaded with Markle’s father to attend their special day. Apparently, Markle Sr. didn’t give in.

Prince Harry’s brother was also affected. “Prince William was pretty upset as well,” the insider continued.

Only Markle’s mother Doria Ragland was her family member to witness her nuptials to Prince Harry. Since then, Markle has reportedly not spoken to her father.

Just recently, Markle’s uncle Mike Markle spoke about their family. According to him, he was also disappointed that he was not invited to the royal wedding as he recalled the things he did for the duchess.

“I don’t understand her, the way she’s treated her family. I’m not very fond of it,” Mike told Daily Mail.

“I’ve done more for her than others… I’ve probably done more for her than most have. I personally talked to the ambassador in Argentina for her. I thought I would [get an invitation], but anyhow, I didn’t hear from her.”

Mike said that even if he has been suffering from Parkinson’s Disease and has a frail heart, he was more than willing to travel to England. Mike added that he and his brother are no longer expecting that their royal niece will contact them again.
