Royal superfan hopes Meghan Markle's father attends wedding

With just days to go before the royal wedding, Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, has taken center stage.

Thomas Markle suffered an apparent heart attack last week and will reportedly undergo surgery in the U.S. today.

Only three days are left for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the wedding is at St. George's Chapel this weekend.

She added that Mr Markle had been pressurised into a "dangerous situation" because of media intrusion.

After originally planning to attend, he then decided not to travel from his home in Mexico to spare his daughter embarrassment after a paparazzi scandal where he posed for staged pictures.

But now, according to TMZ, he will no longer be physically able to - as he will have to have surgery at 7:30am on Wednesday, and will need time to recover.

"On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by vehicle to Windsor Castle", the statement said.

The three Mulroney siblings are the children of Ms Markle's close friend, stylist Jessica Mulroney, and are the grandchildren of former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney.

Their twin boys Brian and John, seven, also have key roles - they have been chosen as page boys alongside His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, four.

Regardless, Thomas scored an invite to her wedding to Prince Harry, taking place this Saturday, May 19.

Kensington Palace has said that the brothers will greet people gathered in the castle precincts, before entering the church.

Responding to reports surrounding her father's attendance at the wedding, Kensington Palace said on Monday that it was a "deeply personal moment for Ms Markle".

The news comes shortly after it was revealed Meghan's dad Thomas Markle would not be walking her down the aisle as he had to have another operation following a recent heart attack.

Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha has reportedly been in a vehicle accident. Meghan's future sister-in-law received the title of Duchess of Cambridge on the day of her nuptials, which went along with the dukedom that the Queen granted Prince William. Mark says her foot was twisted backward and she was taken to hospital, according to The Telegraph.

Staging the photos was meant to counter the way he had been "so unfairly presented in the media as being sort of shabby".

Meghan was just six when Thomas divorced her mother, Doria Ragland.

She continued, "So I said, really you need to show the world that you're getting in shape and doing great healthy things". I'm not saying anything about her , but if I'm talking about my life and my father's she has to respect it.
