  • Meghan Markle Confirms Her Father Will Not Attend Royal Wedding

This week, reports emerged that Thomas Markle would not be attending the royal wedding after suffering a heart attack.

There will be love, and a mixture of royalty and Hollywood, when Meghan Markle marries her very own Prince Charming this Saturday.

Prince Charles and wife Camilla have returned from a visit to Greece, taking a helicopter to Kensington Palace ahead of the royal wedding.

Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, will arrive by auto from another facility where they will sleep at the night before the wedding.

Meghan Markle has had a turbulent few days in the lead up to the Royal Wedding to Prince Harry on May 19. It was then claimed that he had a change of heart, before he told TMZ that he would be having surgery on Wednesday and would not be flying to the United Kingdom to see his daughter marry the prince.

The actress and activist has always been outspoken about her independence and it could be a telling gesture to walk herself down the aisle as she prepares to join the world's most famous family.

"Prince Harry and Meghan's first engagement as a married couple comes next Tuesday, when they'll join the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, at Prince Charles's 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration in the Gardens of Buckingham Palace", HELLO!'s Royal correspondent Emily Nash tweeted Monday. "Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St. George's Chapel".

So what would the late Princess Of Wales have made of her son's union with Ms Markle?

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

In addition to a carriage procession, Prince Harry and Miss Markle have invited 2,640 people into the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the arrivals of wedding guests and to watch the procession as it leaves.

Backtracking on his statements the day before, Thomas Markle told TMZ on Tuesday that he has chose to go to the wedding after speaking with his daughter. He reportedly had a heart attack around a week ago.

"I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle", Mr Markle told TMZ.
