Meghan Markle's father now WANTS to walk her down the aisle and be part of history
Thomas, whose heart was 'seriously damaged' after his heart attack a week ago, is reportedly back in the hospital where doctors are performing a series of tests on him
Thomas Markle, father of the soon-to-be royal bride Meghan Markle, has been in the headlines quite a bit, mostly thanks to his dillydallying when it comes to deciding his role in the wedding party.
For months, it was speculated whether Thomas would walk his daughter down the aisle, and he had revealed on Monday, May 14, that he would not attend the wedding because of a health scare.
Now, as it turns out, he has changed his mind again.
According to TMZ, Meghan Markle's dad has had a change of heart after having a word with the soon-to-be royal and is now looking forward to joining her in England as she marries Prince Harry.
Thomas, whose heart was "seriously damaged" after his heart attack a week ago, is reportedly back in the hospital where doctors are performing a series of tests on him.
It's sad Thomas Markle feels too embarrassed to walk his daughter down the aisle. Meghan's advisors should be telling her to forgive and wrap her arms around him.— Seb Costello (@SebCostello9) May 15, 2018

Thomas claims that despite making a deal with some paparazzi to stage photos of him getting ready for the wedding, Meghan harbors no ill feelings towards him and that she is concerned about his health.
He also revealed that his daughter called him and texted him to let him know that she loved him as well.
As far as the rest of the royal family – especially the Queen – is concerned, Thomas is not very bothered. In fact, he responded to questions about Queen Elizabeth's apparent displeasure about his recent media spotlight by claiming, "I don't think the queen is thinking about what I'm doing."
Nonetheless, Meghan's attempts at expressing her concerns seems to have worked, because Thomas is now planning his trip to England. He feels it would be stupid of him miss the opportunity to walk his daughter down the aisle and be a part of one of the greatest moments in history.
"I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle," he tells TMZ, further reiterating, "Of course I'd walk her down the aisle. This is a historic moment. I'd like to be a part of history."
However, this trip is dependent on his doctors giving him the green light and discharging him by Wednesday, which they have not guaranteed as off now. If they do indeed let him out by Wednesday, he is willing to risk his health and fly across the pond.
