Just 24 hours later however, he backflipped and said he would indeed try to make it to Windsor after he missed a call from Meghan but received a text saying just how much she loves him. The ceremony starts at midday (UK time) at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to Wednesday in a matter of days at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, and with the bride's father Thomas Markle now reportedly unable to attend, people have been wondering who will walk the bride down the aisle.

"Lord Chamberlain, Her Majesty and the Duke are very angry with Meghan's father", a source told the outlet. The palace said earlier it would not comment on the report, and its statement did not clarify if the bride's father would or would not be at the wedding.

Thomas Markle suffered an apparent heart attack last week and it is claimed he will undergo surgery in the U.S. on Wednesday morning, meaning he will miss his daughter's marriage to the UK's Prince Harry on Saturday.

The father of the Suits actress who was supposed to walk her down the aisle has said he wouldn't be attending the wedding.

"This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding", Kensington Palace said in a statement to ET.

Thomas Markle is not the first person to be bruised in the collision between Britain's royal family and the media - a relationship that is deep, complex and sometimes toxic. He is also reported to have suffered a heart attack six days ago, but checked himself out of hospital.

From controversy over the photos to racist online abuse, here are the issues Meghan and Harry have had to deal with on their way to the aisle. "That was not the motive - it was my suggestion", she said.


Markle's gaffe-prone American family has been sending royal courtiers into something of a spin by airing its dirty laundry in public.

The announcement was met with an outpouring of support for both Ms Markle and her father on social media. And he would only attend if his health allowed it, he said. After that, Thomas Markle would have a cup of tea with his new in-laws.

A British Airways flight will celebrate Britain's royal wedding on Saturday by flying to Canada with crew who are all named Harry or Meghan.

"I said the world has no idea that you're getting in shape and doing healthy things", she said.

Despite the chaos, Grant said she purchased a wedding present for Prince Harry and Markle.

Her mother Doria Ragland is a 61-year-old yoga instructor and clinical therapist.

And although they've written zero words of affection to Markle on any royal documents thus far, the royals have made sure to pay tribute to her US heritage.
