Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas had reportedly suffered a heart attack last week, and now we hear that he is set to have surgery tomorrow, just a couple of days before his daughter is getting married to Prince Harry.
Thomas Markle opened up about it to TMZ saying: ‘They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed.’
A few hours before this statement, the man also revealed that he was back in the hospital due to his health problems.
Still, he said he wanted to be there for Meghan when she ties the knot anyway, but that doesn’t seem likely anymore at this point.
Previously, Thomas was involved in a huge scandal due to his decision to stage some paparazzi pictures.
After he was exposed for it, he declared he would no longer attend Meghan and Prince Harry’s ceremony out of shame.
Samantha Markle, Meghan’s older half-sister, took all of the blame upon herself saying: ‘As we know the media can take very unflattering photographs of people on their casual days and blow it way out of proportion. I said, ‘You know, the world has no idea you are getting in shape, doing healthy things. They do not photograph you buying vegetables and PH water. They photograph you in unflattering ways.’ I said, ‘Really, you need to show the world that you are getting in shape and doing great healthy things.’ So, I suggested it.’
Following her confession, Thomas admitted that the pics looked ‘stupid and hammy’ and that he regretted faking them.
Samantha confirmed her father is set to go through another surgery tomorrow morning, but she also stated she hopes everything will go well and he’ll be able to still attend Meghan’s wedding.
