    Amy Holmes I just lost some respect for you Megan is worth 5 million dollars so no she didn't just have some pennies laying around to pay for a $130,000 dress the woman is a multi-millionaire in her own right I would expect if anybody on that panel knew that it would have been you and you would have stood up and said does she is taking care of her business.

    Interesting that her mother managed to conduct herself with quiet grace through all of the days leading up to the wedding. She only got to England (for the first) two days before the wedding. So, he couldn't just be quiet and do what needed to be done...he needed a coach?

    I can’t believe that crown wearing wanna-be referred to he home of Meghan’s father as a “hovel” How nasty. She should be fired.

  • Ethereal Purplelight

    Her father, wanted the spot light to be on Meghan, but he should of stepped up to the plate, and been there for his daughter. But in the end, it played out the best for Meghan, because he did not "know" how to act in public. We need this to be a success, in the world stage. We need a success between America, and the British Connection. We can not spend all the time, "spinning" negative, and expect to have a world of stability. The Americans need to understand their role in the world, and promote, Peace, Understanding, and Kindness. (Not war, guns, arguments, and upheaval). We are no longer in a world, that can take in more, I hope that "Today" will understand, what is needed, "Today", better communication, BETTER SUPPORT.

    This is nothing but killer gossip to injure. This is their wedding day. Could not the world give them at least 1day.
    Honestly if I were the Royal family I would strickly penalize those on tv who cannot shut their twisted mouths to spew out rediculous innuendos on how to deal with anothers personal family issues. The media is way out of line.
    These people get paid thousands to cover a story and they end up taking away precious privacy rights from the very people who invited them in. If they cannot keep to the event and boundaries than cut them off of coverage. Society is one crude cesspool of babbling, gossiping idiots.

    The father would have been taken care of by the royal family anyway, just because his daughter is now a member of the Royal family. My guess is he would be made an Earl afforded a heraldic family coat of arms befitting his new status, also a country home and royal protection.

    Why is Meghan Kelly trying to act frugal with regards to the royal wedding dress? She's the highest paid NBC anchor. Please stop trying to act like you're "just like us". And I still remember all your racist rants on Fox. #whiteSanta

    For those who crowed about the Trumps not being invited, please note that the Obama's and the current Prime Minister of the UK, Teresa May, were also NOT invited. I can see not inviting the Trumps and Obama's, but the Prime Minister basically runs the UK and has the power, whilst the royal family is absolutely nothing and has no power. It is the Parliament that funds the royal family, so slighting Teresa May is not a very good start.

    • TheYasmineFlower
      TheYasmineFlower 年 前 +2

      It's not exactly a slight, though, when no politicians are invited. Besides, it's "just" the spare to the heir of the Prince of Wales, so it's not technically necessary to have politicians there.
      I find it rather good that they decided against politicians. It's very neutral, and maybe takes the edge off the media circus a bit, for them.

    Meghan's dad was trying to make a quick buck selling images to the media after not seeing her for years. Meghan's sister bad mouthed her all over TV whilst promoting her 'Princess Pushy' book, dyed her hair brown and started using the Markle surname again. I mean, clearly that one is a sandwich short of a picnic. Then, her brother pens a letter to her future husband telling him not to marry Meghan. Considering all that, i've really got no idea why Meghan wouldn't invite her family.

    Shame, shame on Meghan and Harry both who should have long ago made the time and met up with her father and prepared him first hand about how life was going to change for her elderly, isolated and introvert father. Imagine if Meghan is stressed out by 2 half siblings that she does not have to deal with, but her father is not isolated from those 2 twits who must have pestered him into his heart attack about their wedding invites.
    Shame on the Queen attacking this elderly man who does not the years, money and not equipped to deal with this madness.
    Meghan's father could even be suffering from dementia due to the isolation that he lives. Diana was killed by the press and now what is happening to her father.

    He doesn't live in a hovel in Mexico, that was plain rude: exactly why he partnered w/ paparazzi to dispel these bad attitudes he felt were looking back on Meghan. Shame on you. In hindsight, her father realized it was a bad idea too: TMZ already reported it was nothing even close to $100,00) -- do your homework ladies and check your sources!
    The only right thing you all are saying is that the palace out to have been able to foresee this better. Who knows, maybe they tried, but Megahan told them not to bother that everything would be fine. No one knows except them.

    Believe it or not, I was actually enjoying Today's coverage of the Royal Wedding, until this appeared. Is NBC now trying to compete with the gossip Celeb news sites? This 'discussion' would have fitted perfectly on TMZ!
    Which is where that PBS presenter might consider working, after describing Mr Markel's home as a "hovel in Mexico". Unfortunately I am already familiar with Keir Simmons (NBC correspondent) quality of work, when he worked in the UK. The best bit however, must be Megyn Kelly saying she changed her mind about Mr Markel after reading an editorial by... Piers Morgan!!!! Guess those Fox News tendencies are hard to shake off.

    • MyMagical1
      MyMagical1 年 前 +2

      Blueskygal Not necessarily. He is a private individual. Also, we don’t know what Support had been offered because it is not Royal protocol to speak out. Kier intimated that. Also, Meghan in her statement made the point of saying that she has always cared for her dad. I interpret that to mean, that she has been in contact with him. Also, he knew what his role would’ve been. Harry asked him by phone for permission to marry his daughter. He had the choice to sort himself out in good time, get himself checked out health wise, stick to a proper regime. He could have sought support from his ex-wife and I’m sure she would have given him moral support. He chose to listen to his dumb kids and sell out the only one of his children who took care of him. He was caught out and his pride has been bruised. The shame caused him to become ill. He has abused his body no one else. I think he feels overwhelmed by everything and needed an excuse. Serena Williams’ dad did the same thing. An hour before her wedding her father texted her to say he won’t be walking her down the aisle. He apparently said that he wasn’t himself anymore. He’d had a stroke and perhaps felt embarrassed about himself. Thomas Markle has let himself go and maybe he like Serena’s dad, feels vulnerable and exposed.

    Meghan is a smart girl. $135,000 is actually small potatoes for a dress which one day will sell at Southerby's for $7 Million. That is what you call a get out of jail card in case the marriage tanks.

    Mr Markle did not want help. The man is not some hobo ,he has been around Hollywood since the 1970s. He also managed to change the focus off his photo scandal to his health crisis and gave TMZ media his health updates rather than his daughter Meghan.So now he gets pity at Meghan and Harry's expense. The media has been trying to locate hospital he's luck. Meghan unable to reach by phone so she sent text, because he won't answer his phone, yet he is in touch with TMZ ,how? By phone. Her dad was ashamed and humiliated by photo scandal and couldn't face meeting everyone and wanted out of wedding. He let her down but he became the poor woe is me victim. Who diagnosed the heart attack,a cardiologist? Or did he. Did he have a heart procedure to remove blockage from arteries or a bypass,which is serious. Was it a heart attack or congestive heart failure or something else? Hope he gets better but something about him does not add up.

      Mike Buttfild I’m afraid not, under the Act of Succession he could not marry a catholic and remain in line for the throne. In this day and age that may not seem right, bearing in mind Prince Harry is 6th in line, would it really matter. He also had to ask the Queen permission to marry because of the same Act. It may seem strange to an American, I grant you, but we Brits are quaint like that.
