“Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding,” Meghan said in a statement. “I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.”

As she continued, “I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday.”
