Meghan and her mom, Doria Ragland.
MEGHAN Markle’s father has said her mother should walk her down the aisle instead after he pulled out of the wedding at the last minute.

Thomas Markle believes his former wife Doria Ragland would be a “good choice” to give their daughter away at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, after his decision not to fly to the UK.

Despite their strained relationship, Meghan is said to have pleaded with her father to change his mind after he apparently pulled out of Saturday’s wedding because of the faked photographs row.

The troubled 73-year-old wants to stay in Mexico following reports that he colluded with a paparazzi photographer to stage a series of pictures in the run-up to the wedding and claims to have suffered a heart attack.

Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, whose father has partially blamed her for his illness, said today: “I spoke to him early in the morning and he was quite depressed.”

Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid interviewed Samantha via video link today on Good Morning Britain and accused her of being a vulture.

Piers listed several claims Samantha had made of her sister, describing her as “selfish” and “narcissistic”.

Samantha was quick to defend herself, as she declared: “I think lot of what you’re reading is from tabloids which are wholly inaccurate.” - Daily Mail
