In a shocking new development, Meghan Markle's father has changed his mind and said he now wants to attend his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry if doctors allow him to fly to England.
Thomas Markle Sr. pulled out of the royal wedding yesterday, saying he didn’t want to embarrass his daughter any further after it came out that he had staged paparazzi photos for money. But he backtracked today after his daughter begged him to change his mind and walk her down the aisle.
The 73-year-old told TMZ that Meghan tried calling him on Monday, but he wasn't near his phone. She later sent a text saying she loved him and was concerned about his health.

Mr Markle said: "I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle.
"Of course I'd walk her down the aisle. This is a historic moment. I'd like to be a part of history."
However, he said his attendance depends on if doctors will allow him to make the trip after suffering a heart attack a week ago and now experiencing severe chest pains.
A friend of Meghan and her fiancé, Prince Harry, told Dailymail that she was standing by her father and pleaded for understanding, saying he was "not in a good place".
