A Timeline Of Thomas Markle's Bizarre Week Ahead Of The Royal Wedding

Just a week ago, Meghan Markle's dad, Thomas, was slated to walk his daughter down the aisle at the royal wedding as she and Prince Harry tie the knot. A lot can change in a week, though, and this father of the bride managed to create some drama in the week before his daughter's big day.

On May 4, Kensington Palace confirmed that the Markle patriarch would be the one "giving away" Meghan at the wedding. The former Hollywood lighting director now enjoys a relatively low-key life as an ex-pat in Rosarito, Mexico. However, things have been anything but low-key leading up to his daughter's nuptials.

According to a Huffington Post report, after backing out of his duties, Thomas Markle, is once again planning to attend his daughter's wedding and escort her down the aisle this Saturday.

Here's a timeline of his bizarre week so far.

On the same day, the embarrassed father admitted he looked "stupid and hammy" in the staged photos. He told TMZ that they were an attempt at rebranding himself and that he never meant to harm or embarrass his daughter or her future in-laws, the British royal family. He also revealed that he'd suffered a heart attack several days before.

A few days remain until the royal wedding, so who knows what might happen with this ever-changing situation?
