As royal fans convened on the genteel English town of Windsor where Harry is due to Wednesday the American actress on Saturday, the role of her father, Thomas Markle, was still unclear after he issued a flurry of statements to an American news website.
Kensington Palace, the official residence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, issued a statement late Monday following the allegations that Markle's father, who lives in Mexico, had pulled out of the wedding.
After announcing earlier this week that he would not attend the royal wedding to walk his daughter down the aisle, he's revealing that he wants to head to London to be their for his daughter after all. Markle told the website he looked "stupid and hammy". She said the media had "raked him over the coals" and "distorted his image".

One tribute to Diana is her favourite flower, white roses, being featured in Meghan's floral arrangements.
In addition, Meghan Markle reportedly called her father after his most recent health scare.
It is said that the decision for her to leave was on Doria's terms, as her new ambition is to set up her own practice.
"I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends with Meghan". The page boys are Jasper Dyer (6, Harry's godson); Brian Mulroney (7); and John Mulroney (7).
Tracy Dooley, who was married to and had children with Meghan's half-brother Thomas Markle Jr, was pictured at Heathrow Airport with sons Tyler (25), and Thomas (26).
The royal wedding of Meghan and Prince Harry will take place on May 19. Both were expected to meet Queen Elizabeth II and other senior royals in the days before the wedding.
