Meghan Markle’s Dad Can’t Attend Her Royal Wedding Due To Scheduled Heart Surgery
On Tuesday, Thomas Markle told TMZ that he wants to walk his daughter Meghan Markle down the aisle Saturday and would risk his life to do so.
Unfortunately, doctors are not letting him take that risk. Thomas had a heart attack a week ago and started having chest pains Monday. He checked himself into the hospital Tuesday and a battery of tests determined he needed surgery.
Thomas tells TMZ, he will go into surgery at 7:30 AM Wednesday. “They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed,” Thomas said the heart attack did significant damage.
As we previously reported, Thomas decided that he did not want to attend his daughter’s wedding due to the humiliation after he got caught staging wedding prep pictures with the paparazzi.
However, he had a change of heart after husband daughter reached out to him to see if he was ok. Thomas shared that Meghan was not upset about the wedding prep situation.
Although Thomas won’t be in attendance for Saturday’s ceremony, we’re sure Meghan and her fiancé Prince Harry will find some way to make him feel like he’s actually there.
