Meghan Markle’s father has today changed his mind and said he does now want to attend her wedding to Prince Harry – if doctors will allow him to fly to England.
Thomas Markle astonishingly pulled out of the royal wedding yesterday, saying he didn’t want to embarrass his daughter any further after the Mail on Sunday revealed he had staged paparazzi photos for money.
But today he appears to have backtracked on his decision after the bride-to-be pleaded with him to walk her down the aisle.
The 73-year-old told TMZ that Meghan tried calling him on Monday, but he wasn’t near his phone. She later sent a text saying she loved him and was concerned about his health.
Mr Markle said: ‘I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle.
‘Of course I’d walk her down the aisle. This is a historic moment. I’d like to be a part of history.’ Being a part of history is a pretty selfish reason to be at your daughters wedding, you dead beat.
However, Mr Markle said his attendance depends on if doctors will allow him to make the trip across the pond after suffering a heart attack a week ago.
