Everything to know about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's weddingThe gossip site says Thomas recently suffered a heart attack and was upset over accusations he staged photos for paparazzi in exchange for a almost $140,000 payout.

He will no longer make the journey to meet his future son-in-law Prince Harry, he said, or keep planned appointments with the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be tying the knot on May 19 and while it is the most awaited wedding of the year, drama doesn't seem to leave the American actresses' life.

The palace said earlier it would not comment on the report, and its statement did not clarify if the bride's father would or would not be at the wedding.

Kensington Palace said when details of the cake were unveiled: "Prince Harry and Ms Markle have asked Ms Ptak to create a lemon elderflower cake to incorporate the bright flavours of spring".

Meghan's half-sister Samantha Grant admitted to arranging the staged shots of Thomas, though she insisted on British talk show Loose Women that the move was not financially motivated. This means he most likely can't travel to England to be with Meghan on her wedding day.
