Meghan Markle‘s father Thomas Markle will not be attending the wedding nor will he be walking this daughter down the aisle after all at the Royal Wedding on May 19 as he suffered a heart attack.

He got checked into a hospital a few days ago, and though he fully recovered, he will stay clear of her 600-person televised wedding which will happen in front of millions of viewers all around the world. 

The reason why he refuses to attend the wedding is that he doesn't want to embarrass Meghan or the Royal family anymore.

Following the news of Mr. Markle's heart attack, The Palace also released a statement stating, "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."

It was recently reported that he staged and sold images of him to the paparazzi and it was creating waves all over the world. Thomas Markle also admitted that he did make a deal with the paps to show himself getting ready for the wedding

Though he agrees the pics looked "stupid and hammy" he didn't want want to harm Meghan or the Royal family.

He revealed that the reason why he struck a deal to get the pic clicked was not that of the money, but because the paparazzi have caught him while supposedly buying beer, supposed for the guards outside of his home, while looking dishevelled, mostly in unflattering situations and he thinks that these pics supposedly portrays him in an uncharacteristically negative light.

He even revealed that this isn't the first deal he's been offered since Prince Harry proposed to Meghan. He has repeatedly gotten offers for interviews in the neighborhood of $50,000 to $100,000 each but denied all of them.
