Why is the bride's father not walking his daughter down the aisle?

Thomas Markle, the father of the bride was to walk his daughter down the aisle until he pulled out on Monday following his paparazzi scandal.

Thomas allegedly linked up with paparazzi to stage photos of him preparing for the wedding.

Pictures of him reading a book about Britain, checking out the couple's engagement photos on a computer, and trying outfits for the ceremony first melted hearts online before it was then discovered that the pictures were not original.

The controversy sparked by the allegedly fake photos caused the actress' father to pull out of the ceremony.
