London : Kensington Palace on Monday said Meghan Markle was suffering a ''deeply personal moment'' following the reports her father would not attend her wedding to Prince Harry on May 19.

According to celebrity news website TMZ, Thomas Markle, who recently posed for paparazzi photos, has pullet out of accompanying her daughter down the aisle at Windsor Castle because he does not want to embarrass her.

Mr. Markle is also reported to have suffered a Heart Attack in recent days.

''This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding,'' Kensington Palace, the official residence of the couple, said in a statement.

''She and Prince Harry ask for an understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.''

The palace refused to confirm whether Thomas would be attending the wedding on Saturday. The US actor's father had previously defied the palace's pleas for secrecy by agreeing to pose for a paparazzi photo-shoot.

The images, showing him being measured for a suit and admiring a photo of the future royal couple on his computer, sold for $100,000 according to tabloid The Daily Mirror.

A source close to Thomas Markle, cited the publication, said he was convinced after being hounded by the paparazzi.

He is now said to feel ''like a totalfool'' who has been scammed. [AFP]
