Meghan Markle's Dad Buys a Frappuccino Just Days After Heart Surgery

5/21/2018 6:43 PM PDT

Meghan Markle's father might've missed his daughter's wedding with Prince Harry, but he wasn't missing his Starbucks while on the mend ... broken hearts be damned.

The Duchess' dad, Thomas Markle, was in Rosarito, Mexico Monday stopping off at a Starbucks drive-thru -- and seemingly walking away with a Frappuccino in hand, whipped cream and all. Mind you ... Thomas just underwent heart surgery last week. 

Now, we're not doctors or anything ... but for whatever reason, it doesn't seem like a good idea to slurp up one of Bucks' sweetest, calorie-packed beverages on the heels of a heart procedure -- not to mention a very recent heart attack, too. That's just us, though.

Maybe he's just celebrating the fact that Meghan's wedding went off without a hitch, despite the fact he couldn't be there. Consolation caffeine hits the spot, apparently.

Royal Wedding's Bishop Curry Love's Already Changed the World ... My Sermon's On Point!!!

5/21/2018 11:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bishop Michael Curry's got proof his powerful words at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Royal Wedding were more than just trite sayings ... and, in fact, his "love is the way" sermon is kinda what Kanye West was talking about when he visited our offices. 

We spoke with Bishop Curry -- who delivered a rousing sermon at the Duke and Duchess' nuptials Saturday -- and he tells us he wasn't BSing with his repeated message of ... well, things are generally better "when love is the way." Far from it ... dude truly believes that.

The Bishop cites multiple examples of icons throughout history who led with love, and he says their approach has helped move the world forward. And for those who are cynical ... check out his Dr. Phil moment ... it's meant for folks just like them. 

Prince Harry & Meghan Come Up for Air, Grinning Like They ... (Wink, wink)

5/21/2018 9:51 AM PDT

If you wondered how Prince Harry and Meghan spent their first day married ... the looks on their faces Monday should answer any questions.

The royal newlyweds had a certain glow about 'em as they arrived back at their home at Kensington Palace in London -- the first sighting since Saturday's festivities. They've done away with all the pomp and circumstance ... no chauffeur, as Harry drove his bride.

No immediate honeymoon for Megs and Harry ... they've postponed it for Prince Charles' 70th birthday Patronage Celebration. There's a public celebration for the future King of England on Tuesday.

Just 'cause they didn't jet off somewhere doesn't mean the Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn't start the party. Sunday funday, indeed.

Paris Hilton I'm Ready to Unveil the Truth Meghan's Getup was Awesome!!!

5/21/2018 6:52 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's haute couture Givenchy wedding dress wasn't the showstopper of the Royal Wedding, it was her 16-foot veil, according to Paris Hilton.

We got Paris at LAX over the weekend fresh off the plane from the Cannes Film Festival where she raised a ton of cash for charity and asked her what she thought of the Royal Wedding. Paris, who got engaged to fiance Chris Zylka over New Years, didn't have anything to say about the dress, but the veil was a different story.

Markle wore a tiara from Queen Elizabeth with the veil which was decorated with flowers from all 53 countries in the British Commonwealth along the trim. Markle also added the California Poppy, the State flower of California. The veil reportedly took hundreds of hours to make.

It'll be hard to top, even for Paris.

SNL Royal Wedding Reception ... We're Just as Screwed Up as You!!!

5/20/2018 6:36 AM PDT

SNL parodied the Royal wedding reception of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the funny is also relatable ... everyone has screwed up family members.

Mikey Day played Prince Harry and walked through the party introducing friends and relatives from both sides ... from a royal with pedophile tendencies to a "Deal or No Deal" briefcase model.

Shout out to Alex Moffat for his Prince William impersonation, and Tina Fey for Auntie Creepy.

Of course a portion of the reception is devoted to Meghan's warring fam ... truth is, in this case reality is way more interesting than parody.

One hilarious line ... when one of the partygoers asks the Queen if she's pissed off over "The Crown," because the show makes her look like a bitch!

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle New Duds and a Fancy Car For the After-Party

5/19/2018 11:59 AM PDT

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on their way to the more private evening reception following their Royal Wedding, and they're heading there in style ... James Bond style.

Meghan Markle changed out of her wedding dress into a white sleeveless, high-neck gown by Stella McCartney ... while Prince Harry put on a classic black and white tux that screams 007. The newlyweds left Windsor Castle to head to their second reception, hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House.

To top it all off ... the 2 hopped in Prince Charles' silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero -- which also gives off some strong Bond vibes -- and Harry drove them to the party.

As we reported ... Meghan and Harry got hitched Saturday morning in a wedding that was dramatic and kind of an awesome break from Royal tradition.

Congrats again!

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle They Got Hitched and it was Awesome!!!

5/19/2018 12:30 AM PDT

The big day has finally come for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ... Meghan is now a Duchess and the wedding was a dramatic and kinda awesome break from Royal tradition.

Meghan and Harry chose the song "Stand By Me," as an anthem to their nuptials. A Black American Bishop stole the show and she walked half way down the aisle herself as a show of independence.

Meghan is now the Duchess of Sussex ... Harry is the Duke. 

Lots of celebs were on hand, including Oprah, George and Amal Clooney as well as David and Victoria Beckham.

Meghan's dad, Thomas Markle, tells TMZ, "My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy.  I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness." Thomas is in California, recovering from heart surgery. He says watching the ceremony was "emotional and joyful."

Meghan's mom was a big hit ... clearly moved by the ceremony as she sat front and center.

Meghan wore a Givenchy wedding gown, designed by Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director of the French company. 

It looks like Meghan's not going back to "Suits."

The Royal Wedding Royal Flub on Programs ... Says Meghan's Dad Will Be There!!!

5/18/2018 4:43 PM PDT

Either the Royal Wedding programs were printed far in advance, or someone made a huge mistake ... because they're not updated to show Meghan Markle's dad, Thomas, won't be there.

The Order of Service for Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding was just made available to the public, and we noticed something wrong ... on page 9 -- there are 20 pages total! -- it says the Bride "is joined by her Father, Mr Thomas Markle, to the High Altar.

We broke the story ... Thomas is unable to make the trip to the U.K. for the wedding because he's recovering from heart surgery. Prince Charles is stepping in his place to do the honors ... which will be a surprise to those going strictly off the program.

FYI, the Order of Service includes full details about the processions, music, hymns, prayers and readings ... and some incidental fake news about Meghan's dad.

Meghan Markle and her mother looked incredibly happy and every bit as stunning ... which should come as no surprise with the Royal wedding just a mere hours away.

Meghan and her mom, Doria Ragland, arrived at the Cliveden House Hotel on the National Trust's Cliveden Estate in Buckinghamshire to spend the night before Meghan weds Prince Harry.

The historic event hasn't come without some hiccups, and that's putting it lightly. As TMZ first reported ... Meghan's father, Thomas, wanted to walk Meghan down the aisle but had to back out because of his heart condition.

Doria was expected to walk Meghan, but Prince Charles took the honors ... at Meghan's request.

As we first reported ... Thomas gave his blessing.

Think of it as 'last call' for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry -- the couple's left their London home for the final time as unhitched peeps.

The betrothed duo was all smiles Friday as they pulled out of Kensington Palace, where they live, making the chauffeur-driven one-hour ride out to Windsor ... where the royal wedding will go down tomorrow.

They headed out shortly after the Palace's 11th hour shocker-- that Prince Charles will walk her down the aisle.

If they're at all superstitious this will be the last few hours Harry and Meghan will see each other before the big day. If they've got any jitters, they're hiding 'em well.

Meg's definitely got that royal wave thing down pat.

Well, this is a twist ... Meghan Markle's mom will not walk her down the aisle and give her away Saturday ... instead Meghan's gone the royal route.

The statement goes on ... "The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way."

TMZ broke the story ... Meghan's dad, Thomas, wanted to do the honors but couldn't fly to England because of heart surgery. Meghan's mom, who is in England for the wedding and her only immediate family member invited, was expected to walk the walk but, clearly, there were other plans.

The Palace made it clear in the statement ... it was Meghan's decision.
