It is now believed that Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, may walk her down the aisle, or that she will be accompanied by a member of the Royal Family.

"People are quick to judge but they have no idea how much scrutiny we live under", Markle Jr. added. "Meghan is determined to try and convince her father to get on a plane in time for the ceremony".

Kensington Palace has appealed for "understanding and respect" for Prince Harry and Meghan amid this latest media storm.
