According to TMZ, Thomas Markle, Sr. Has had a change of heart, reportedly after a phone call from his daughter. He is now saying he DOES want to come to London for the Royal wedding and walk his daughter down the aisle as originally planned. He had withdrawn after the embarrassing staged-photo debacle in order to spare Meghan and the Royal Family any further humiliation.
On Tuesday, the elder Markle had a telephone call from the bride and afterward expressed that he had changed his mind about ditching the big event. But, there is one complication that may end up putting the kibosh on his good intentions.
TMZ reports, “Thomas Markle just told us he's back in the hospital after experiencing serious chest pains and doctors are performing a battery of tests on him. He says the doctors told him his heart was ‘seriously damaged’ after his heart attack a week ago."
Thomas reveals that his daughter had attempted to reach him on Monday “but he was not near his phone. She followed up with a text telling him she loved him and was concerned about his health. He says she harbors no ill feelings toward him for making a deal with a paparazzi agency to stage photos of him getting ready for the wedding.
“As for the Queen being upset with him, Thomas scoffed, saying, ‘I don't think the Queen is thinking about what I'm doing.’
“Thomas says he's thought about it and now believes what he did with the photos was not a serious transgression, although he calls it ‘stupid.’ He says he now wants to make the trek to England, telling us, ‘I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle.’
“Thomas says if doctors let him out of the hospital he will risk his health and fly to England so he can be with his daughter. Whether he gets released this week is problematic. Thomas says he's lobbied the doctors, asking if he can get out Wednesday, but they have been noncommittal.”
Well, this is certainly good news, but if I were Meghan, I would not get my hopes up. After all, there are still four days until the wedding and there is plenty of time for another change of heart - or two - between now and then! Stay tuned!!
