Markle became embroiled in controversy after he allegedly staged paparazzi photographs of himself in the run-up to the nuptials at Windsor Castlethis Saturday.
The American TV actress' family has been in the news for their controversial statements about the bride-to-be.
Officials also said that on the day of the wedding, Markle's mother would accompany her in a vehicle ride to Windsor Castle and that Markle's father would walk his daughter down the aisle at St. George's Chapel. And what's more: He was going to walk Meghan down the aisle.
This all comes after a Mail on Sunday report featured CCTV footage of what appeared to be Thomas arranging to take paparazzi images with a photographer.
Thomas Markle suffered an apparent heart attack last week and it is claimed he will undergo surgery in the USA on Wednesday morning, meaning he will miss his daughter's marriage to the UK's Prince Harry on Saturday. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation", a Kensington Palace statement said. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation".
A friend of Meghan, 36, says Thomas - who suffered a "heart attack" a week ago but checked out of hospital to attend the wedding - is not in a "good place". After announcing earlier this week that he would not attend the royal wedding to walk his daughter down the aisle, he's revealing that he wants to head to London to be their for his daughter after all. "Meghan and I do not have a relationship now".
He said that if doctors allow him to be discharged, he will fly to London.
CNN has reached out to Thomas Markle for comment over phone and over email but has yet to receive an answer.
