After revelations that Thomas Markle has cancelled plans to be a part of the royal wedding, Meghan Markle has pleaded with her dad to change his mind and walk her down the aisle.
Thomas Markle said he will not be able to make it to the royal wedding after suffering a heart attack.
Speaking to The Sun, a source said that Meghan is devastated and wants her father to be there and they are trying work it out so that Thomas is able to come after all.
Thomas said he suffered a heart attack six days ago.
He recently revealed he was going to check back into hospital after suffering more chest pains.
The news comes mere hours after he admitted he had been paid to pose for staged paparazzi pictures and said he did not want to embarrass either his daughter or the Royals in the wake of his confession.
His no-show revelation which came just four days before the wedding at Windsor’s St George’s Chapel, caught the Palace completely by surprise — throwing its plans into chaos.
Tweeting about it, Kensington Palace said last night: “This is a deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this difficult situation.”
If her dad is a no-show, mum Doria, 61, may now have to give her away at Windsor’s St George’s Chapel.
Thomas, who lives in Rosarito, Mexico, was supposed to be flying to London this week to meet the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, Wills and Kate at a lunch ahead of the ceremony.
If he sticks to his refusal to attend the wedding Doria, 61, will probably take over his duties.
