The past few days were spent speculating if Meghan Markle’s father will attend her wedding to Prince Harry. First it was because of a heart attack and a paparazzi scandal that stopped Thomas Markle from attending, then he took back his statement and said he couldn’t miss this historical event, but in the end, health comes first—and that’s confirmed by Meghan through Kensington Palace.

The statement read, “Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.” Meghan chose to not disclose details about his father’s health, but according to TMZ, Thomas underwent surgery following his heart attack and is now recovering.
She also thanked everyone’s messages of support, and that she and Harry are looking forward to sharing the Royal Wedding with everyone!
