The couple are due to tie the knot on Saturday in a ceremony in Windsor but on Monday it was claimed Meghan’s father would not give her away due to concerns he had embarrassed her or the royal family over photographs apparently posed with paparazzi.
Mr Markle is said to have had a heart attack one week ago and it has been claimed he will undergo surgery at 7.30am local time on Wednesday, meaning he will miss the ceremony.
He reportedly told TMZ: ‘They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed.’
Ms Markle’s mother Doria Ragland has today been pictured leaving LAX airport from where she is flying to the UK in time for Saturday’s ceremony.
