Meghan’s Markle’s father will not walk her down the aisle as he is due to have heart surgery, a US report said.Thomas Markle said he will go into surgery at 7.30am in Mexico, where he lives, after he reportedly suffered from a heart attack last week.
He will not be able to travel to England for his daughter’s wedding to Prince Harry in Windsor, celebrity website TMZ said.His absence most likely means that his ex-wife, Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland, will walk their daughter down the aisle at St George’s chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
Mr Markle, 73, is believed to have started having chest pains and checked himself into hospital where he had a series of tests.”They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed,” he said.
