After some back-and-forth, Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas, will not walk her down the aisle at the royal wedding Saturday. After dropping out of the wedding Monday, and then wanting to return Tuesday, he revealed he wouldn’t be able to fly London because he has to have surgery on his heart Wednesday.

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

He had a heart attack last week and checked himself into the hospital Monday after he was slammed for staging paparazzi pictures. Thomas Markle blamed his son, Thomas Markle Jr., for causing his heart attack. Meghan Markle’s half-brother wrote an open letter, where he said Prince Harry shouldn’t marry to former Suits actress.

“As more time passes to your royal wedding it becomes very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal history,” he wrote in an April 26 letter, published by In Touch Weekly. “Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.”

“I’m confused why you don’t see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees,” he continued. “Meghan’s attempt to act the part of a princess like a below C average Hollywood actress is getting old.”
