Cape Town - It seems Prince Harry has been Meghan Markle’s rock through all her recent family drama.

In the latest twist in the ongoing saga Thomas Markle told TMZ he won’t be attending his daughter’s wedding because he has to have heart surgery on Wednesday, 16 May. Meghan and Harry are set to tie the knot on Saturday 19 May.

Earlier the former Hollywood lighting director said he wouldn’t attend the royal wedding because of reports in the Daily Mail of how he’d posed for snaps in an internet café reading articles about his daughter. The pictures had reportedly been sold to news outlets around the world – and the 73-year-old was paid for them.

Meghan has since released a statement, saying that her father will no longer be attending the wedding.

But throughout it all Prince Harry has reportedly been giving his wife-to-be a shoulder to lean on.

“Harry is-super protective of Meghan and isn’t happy unless she’s happy,” a source told Us Weekly.

“Anytime there is or has been negative press about Meghan he blows it off and acts as though it’s the two of them against the world.”

The issue is especially sensitive because of Harry’s personal history with the media, the sourced added.

“Harry has never felt at ease with press coverage because he watched his mother shy away from the cameras and now that his fiancée has been so negatively affected, it’s hard for him.

“While meeting each other has been a dream come true, the embarrassment Meghan has endured because of her family’s openness with the press has been incredibly trying.

“Harry loves Meghan and has felt very protective of how she and her family have been portrayed throughout their engagement. He feels much of the coverage of her family has been very hurtful,” the source explained.
