It's claimed he didn't want to further embarrass Meghan or the royal family.
MEGHAN MARKLE's estranged half-sister has been injured in a auto crash. "I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health".
Journalists from the United States, England, Spain, Germany, and France have been arriving in search of Markle, contacting Gil Sperry, editor of the Baja Times. However, because of his decision to not to attend the wedding, he will not be able to meet his son-in-law before he married his daughter.
Meghan's half-sister Samantha Markle, meanwhile, makes various appearances on worldwide news outlets, including a British morning show and a British talk show.
Samantha has been making headlines all week thanks to the photos she staged with her dad, Thomas Markle.
But by Tuesday, a new TMZ report said Markle would be attending the wedding, despite suffering heart problems.
However, she shared a statement through Kensington Palace on Thursday confirming her dad is not attending her wedding and on Friday, it was revealed that Prince Charles will walk her down the aisle.
It's suggested Meghan's mother Doria Ragland, who divorced Thomas when Meghan was a child, could take on the role.
Days later, he changed his tune and said he meant to walk his daughter down the aisle, but his plans were thwarted as a result of the heart surgery he underwent on Wednesday morning. He remains in the hospital and is covering from the procedure he underwent to fix damage to his heart caused by the heart attack he suffered last week.
"The patient chose to voluntarily leave on the afternoon of Friday, May 4, to continue his care at a private medical facility", the ministry said.
However, Markle rejected any treatment following the diagnosis and declined to be transported to his Rosarito home.
The school, founded in 1906 by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, has mission-style terra cotta roofs and is located just a few miles from the landmark Hollywood sign.
She said: "She's not going to tell me that I can't speak about my life".
Markle Sr.'s reason for backing out is twofold: not only does he feel ashamed about the aftermath of staging Those Pictures, but he also reportedly had a heart attack less than a week ago.
