"This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding," a Kensington Palace spokes person has said in a statement. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation."

It as also been reported that part of Thomas' decision is based on his health, as it's been reported that he suffered a heart attack last week. Kensington Palace officials in London have since confirmed the medical scare in a new statement released to the media.
