Long before the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, news outlets continually ran stories about the fractured relationship between Meghan and her father, Thomas Markle. He did not attend the wedding in the end, and Prince Charles had to walk Meghan down the aisle.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain for the first time since the wedding, Thomas Markle said he regretted his actions leading up to the wedding and the drama he had caused. According to him, he would have to live the rest of his life with the burden. He also regretted not being able to walk his daughter down the aisle.

In a new turn of events, Sally Osman who was the Royal Director of Communications for the royal family is leaving her position. The 57-year-old joins the list of people who have moved on in a spate of shuffling that has Britons concerned.

Although no particular explanation has been given for her move, observers suspect that it may be related to the drama surrounding Thomas Markle. Osman had a hard time managing the situation in the weeks leading up to the royal wedding.

The event may have been a success, but the fallout just might be the reason for Osman’s exit. Before her job with the Palace, she was the Communication Secretary to the Prince of Wales. Eventually, she moved on to coordinate media departments at Clarence House, Kensington Palace, and Buckingham Palace.

Meanwhile, some fans of the Royal family are still not very pleased about the Royal wedding. Many of the comments shared on social media suggest that Meghan is largely responsible for the embarrassment that the royal family has had to endure.

Her Majesty, however, seems particularly pleased with Meghan nonetheless and seems to be developing a good relationship with the new Duchess. How the future will pan out for the royals in light of issues arising from the Markles is yet to be seen.
