The past week has been especially dramatic for Meghan Markle. Her father, Thomas Markle, suffered a heart attack, and later admitted that he had staged paparazzi photos. Thomas then announced that he would not be going to the royal wedding in hopes of not embarrassing his daughter any further. He later had a change of heart and revealed he wanted to walk his daughter down the aisle, but was taken back to the hospital with more chest pain.
Thomas was told that he would need surgery, and that he would not be able to make the trip to the U.K. for Meghan Markle’s wedding. Meghan officially confirmed the news on Wednesday via a statement from the palace.
