Earlier reports suggested Meghan Markle's father wanted to leave hospital to attend his daughter's wedding to Britain's Prince Harry.

She had been due to be walked up the aisle by her 73-year-old father, an Emmy-winning Hollywood lighting director of Dutch-Irish descent who retired to Mexico.

Thomas told TMZ that his daughter called him on Monday, but he missed the call.

"They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, fix damage and put a stent where it is needed", Thomas Markle Sr.

Mr Markle also said his eldest daughter, Samantha, who has repeatedly spoken negatively about Ms Markle in the press, had had no real relationship with her as an adult and no knowledge of her relationship with Prince Harry.

Mr Markle said Meghan was not upset after his staged paparazzi photos.

He reportedly told the celebrity website TMZ that he doesn't want to embarrass the royal family or his daughter.

Uncertainty remains over who will walk the royal bride, Meghan Markle down the aisle come Saturday.

Her father also suffered a heart attack recently but he had still planned to attend the wedding prior to the scandal unfolding.

"Of course I'd walk her down the aisle".

Meghan's father now says he will not attend the wedding.

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

Kensington Palace has declined to comment. Writing Tuesday in Mail Online, Piers Morgan, the television presenter, accused Ms. Markle's family of having "already behaved like the worst kind of vile, dysfunctional, money-grabbing misfits in the run-up to her marriage".

Simon Dudley, the Conservative leader of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council, caused an uproar in January when he urged local police to take action against "aggressive begging" and said homeless people were there out of "voluntary choice".

"You say this is all the media's fault because the media has been treating him in a shabby way, many of our viewers may have watched your activities and think you have treated your sister Meghan in a very shabby way."
But the half-sister of Meghan Markle appeared for a Skype interview with the British host and got more than she expected.

Ragland, who has reportedly already arrived in Britain, is expected to spend Friday night with her daughter in a plush hotel before travelling with her by vehicle to Windsor Castle.

On Tuesday, Americans in Windsor ahead of the nuptials were sympathetic to their compatriot.

"He had a moral right to set the record straight and defend himself", she said.

Let's face it, weddings are supposed to be the happiest day of the bride and groom's lives, but they are often stressful affairs, filled with anxiety about everything from wilting flowers to drunken relatives.
