Thomas Markle has been the subject of many unflattering media reports in the British tabloids as his daughter Meghan prepares to marry Prince Harry on Saturday.

Markle, who grew up in the Los Angeles suburb of Woodland Hills, had been due to be walked up the aisle by her 73-year-old father an Emmy-winning Hollywood lighting director of Dutch-Irish descent who is enjoying retired life in Mexico. While her family have seemingly done their best to drag her reputation through the mud over the past few months, the Palace has been vocal in its support of her and has, in Meghan's own words, been welcoming and understanding. He said the pains have been triggered by emotional upset.

The £1.55 stamp is a more informal black-and-white image showing Ms Markle with her arm through Harry's as she gently holds his hand while they walk happily through the grounds. He is divorced from Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, who also is planning on traveling with her daughter to the wedding.

This all comes after a Mail on Sunday report featured CCTV footage of what appeared to be Thomas arranging to take paparazzi images with a photographer.

"This is not what she wants".

The friend said: "This is not what she wants". The concern for him is real and genuine.

His star daughter Ms Markle has previously described him as caring, hardworking and someone who "invested in my future so that I could grow up to have so much".

May 14 - Thomas Markle says he will no longer attend the royal wedding.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Monday night issued a statement asking for "understanding and respect" for Thomas Markle.

There was no independent confirmation that Mr Markle had been ill, however.

Meghan Markle, 36, has captured global attention as she prepares to become the newest member Britain's royal family.

Other candidates include: Prince Charles, Prince Philip and Prince William.

Mr Markle said Meghan has tried to contact him, but has hasn't spoken to her on the phone.

Mr Markle has admitted to colluding with agency Coleman Rayner for the staged pictures.

He says he was not offered anywhere near $100,000 for the photos as it was claimed in the media.

Markle was quoted by TMZ, as saying he made the decision not to attend the May 19 ceremony after a backlash over an alleged $180,000 payment he received for staging photographs with United Kingdom tabloid the Mail on Sunday before Meghan's wedding.

She is not on the wedding guest list. The media was unfairly making him look bad so I suggested he do positive photos for his benefit and the benefit of the royal family.

There will only be 50 of the special Royal Wedding Buckets up for grabs, and they'll be exclusively on sale at KFC's Windsor branch (naturally) on Dedworth Road.

CNN has reached out to Thomas Markle for comment over phone and over email but has yet to receive an answer. He had a pretty big health scare. I said, you know, the world has no idea you're getting in shape, doing healthy things.

He added: "There is no way he is not going to go to that wedding".

"When she said she wanted to set us up, I had one question: 'Well, is he nice?'" Meghan said. Meghan will be walking down the aisle on May 19th at the Windsor Castle.

The 1st class stamp shows the couple sitting together holding hands on the steps of Frogmore House, where they will have their evening reception.
