It's still unclear who will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle

It's still unclear who will walk Meghan Markle down the aisle

Kensington Palace declined to comment on the latest twist when INSIDER called. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this hard situation".

Thomas Markle suffered an apparent heart attack last week and it is claimed he will undergo surgery in the United States on Wednesday morning, meaning he will miss his daughter's marriage to the UK's Prince Harry on Saturday. "So I am really happy we able to do this for her now". This is a historic moment.

Markle's heart surgery is reportedly scheduled for Wednesday morning, during which he would have a stent fitted.

In the statement released by Kensington Palace, Prince Harry's official residence, Markle thanked "everyone who has offered generous messages of support".

What will Meghan Markle's title be after she marries Prince Harry?

But on Tuesday, he also expressed his desire to still be part of Markle's wedding entourage.

Thousands of journalists from across the world are descending on the genteel town of Windsor for the wedding, and Thomas told TMZ that the media attention had taken its toll.

Meanwhile, Markle and her mother will depart the Cliveden House Hotel in a auto that will pass along the Long Walk, providing onlookers with a glimpse of the bride. She also accompanied Meghan at the Invictus Games closing ceremony, hosted by Prince Harry, which took place in Toronto.

Thomas Markle Sr. had a number of stents placed in his blood vessels after his heart was "severely damaged" as a result of a heart attack last week, TMZ reports. She's been referred to as Meghan's "unofficial wedding planner" and has reportedly helped the bride-to-be pick out everything from the flowers to the photography to the dress.

Then came the news of the heart surgery.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are sure to receive a wide variety of wedding gifts, but PETA India's may be the most unique.

It is the private Catholic girls school where a young Meghan Markle first stepped on a stage, which started her on a path - nearly unbelievably - to become a member of the British Royal Family.

Later in the day, Thomas Markle told TMZ he staged the photos in an effort to rebrand his image and admits the posed pictures look "stupid and hammy". That story also included a report that he had suffered a recent heart attack. But after a lot of back and forth, Thomas, 73, has in fact confirmed that he will no longer be attending the Royal wedding.

The royal wedding is expected to provide the British economy with a $1.4 billion boost so it makes sense that brands are hungry to get a cut of the cash.

Ragland, a social worker and yoga instructor, will meet Harry's royal relatives and be introduced to various friends of Harry and Meghan's over the next few days.
