The Royal Wedding is just days away, and Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, 73, will not be taking part in the historical ceremony. Markle was to walk his daughter down the aisle in time-honored tradition, but he has declared he would not be there.

This decision follows a revelation by The Mail On Sunday that Thomas Markle had been paid by paparazzi to stage photos. Markle had stated he did not wish to embarrass his daughter further, but Meghan had persuaded him to change his mind.

On the 16th of May 2018, just three days before the wedding, the Daily Mail has reported that Markle is supposedly undergoing heart surgery, and will be in no condition to travel to the United KIngdom.

'I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle,'

Thomas Markle, Daily Mail,16th of May 2018.

Markle has explained that doctors will be unblocking his heart, 'repair damage, and put a stent where it is needed.' This development leaves Meghan with no male relative to walk her down the aisle in the chapel in Windsor Castle in Berkshire.

Concerned Royal fans have been putting forward suggestions on Twitter that Prince Charles should step in and walk his future daughter-in-law to the altar.

This would not be the first time Prince Charles has performed this duty. He gave away Princess Diana's goddaughter Alexandra Knatchbull at her wedding to Thomas Hooper in 2016. Knatchbull's relationship with her father, Lord Brabourne, was strained, and his good friend, the Prince of Wales did the honors.

Although this gesture on the part of the Prince of Wales would be a break with tradition, it would also signal the Royal Family's unity and their wholehearted acceptance of Meghan Markle into the fold.
