Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas, has changed his mind, saying he would not be missing out on making history at his daughter’s wedding.
Thomas Markle, whose daughter Meghan is set to marry British royalty Prince Harry on May 19, 2018, has been ill.
Concise News reported on Wednesday that Thomas will not be attending his daughter’s wedding after he suffered a heart attack seven days ago.
Well, the 73-year-old has revealed that if doctors allow him, he would walk his daughter down the aisle.
In a chat with TMZ, Thomas revealed that Meghan reached out to him on Monday through a text, saying she was worried about his health and she loves him.
Thomas also said that he wouldn’t want to miss out on the biggest day of her life.
He said: “I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle.
“Of course I’d walk her down the aisle. This is a historic moment. I’d like to be a part of history.”
A source close to Meghan and Prince Harry told Daily Mail that she was supporting her father on this and has appealed to everyone for understanding due to his ill-health.
The source explained: “This is not what she wants. She obviously wants her dad there. And the idea of contemplating him not being there now is not something that she wants to have to do.
“She and Prince Harry are begging for people to give him some space. They have been saying this for weeks, while trying to offer him support and help.
“He is clearly feeling under immense pressure. The concern for him is real and genuine.
“He is a proud man who wants to be a father and not be taken care of, but it’s quite difficult.
“Everyone needs to pause and think what this is doing to them and, more importantly, to him. It is a really worrying, scary situation. The couple have been doing everything they can to help him.”
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old Groom-to-be, Prince Harry is said to be blaming himself for the whole situation.
The source said, “Harry feels guilty that this has happened to someone he loves because they are in a relationship with him.
“He is devastated. He feels like this is another thing in the wake of him… the problems he causes. He feels that anyone who gets associated with his life – this is the price they have to pay.
“He wants to protect her and this is really difficult for him to swallow.”
