On Monday, May 14th — days before the upcoming wedding of the year — royals fans were in shock after Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, confirmed he would skip the wedding. His unexpected announcement came in response to Markle being under major fire from the media for staging a photo shoot with the paparazzi.
As reported earlier, the public suspected he staged the shoot for money, which he allegedly received $135,000 for. However, Markle has assured that he was only trying to save his image since the media continued to paint him in a negative light; however, he decided not to attend the wedding to save his daughter and the royal family from embarrassment.
In addition, it was revealed that Meghan’s dad also suffered a heart attack recently. What a stressful time it was for the bride-to-be.
The palace released a statement in response to the report asking for “understanding and respect” during this difficult time for Meghan and Prince Harry, especially since her dad was supposed to walk her down the aisle.
Following the unexpected news, Markle’s father made another shocking announcement. According to TMZ, he changed his mind after he spoke with his daughter about the incident.
Now, Meghan’s dad wants to travel to England to walk his daughter down the aisle. Unfortunately, the trip is solely dependent on his health condition.
Markle is back in the hospital for his heart. Doctors reportedly said his heart was “seriously damaged,” but if he is released, he will travel for the wedding on Saturday, May 19th.
