Jane’s Royal Watch: Meghan Markle’s father to have heart surgery

The drama over Meghan Markle’s father continues.

The big question surrounding Saturday’s royal wedding is who will walk Markle down the aisle now that her father will undergo major heart surgery on Wednesday after he suffered a heart attack last week.

“They (doctors) will go in and clear a blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed,” Thomas Markle Sr. told TMZ.

Post-surgery, he won’t be fit to travel to England.

Earlier Tuesday, Markle Sr. said he wanted to walk Meghan down he aisle after earlier saying he was out of the ceremony due to embarrassment over staged photos with paparazzi, but it all depended on his doctor’s giving him consent given his health.

“I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history,” Markle Sr. told TMZ.

Thomas said he missed a call from Meghan Monday, but she sent a text telling her dad she loved him, was worried about his health and not angry about the staged photo shoots ahead of her big day — a decision he now says was “stupid.”

Meanwhile, with Ladbrokes giving 4-6 odds, Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland is the favourite as a replacement to walk the bride down the aisle.
