Meghan’s Fa­ther: In­side His Health Cri­sis

In Touch (USA) - - Cover Story -

Thomas Markle, 73, who re­port­edly de­cided to skip the wed­ding just be­fore the big day, “is suf­fer­ing from se­vere heart prob­lems,” a source tells In Touch, adding that he even had a re­cent heart at­tack and drove him­self to a hospi­tal near his home in Rosar­ito, Mex­ico. “He’s due to have surgery,” says the source, adding that the two-time di­vorcé — who “lives on junk food” like KFC and Mcdon­ald’s, ac­cord­ing to the source — won’t bring up the sub­ject with his daugh­ter. “Thomas adores Meghan and wants to avoid caus­ing any ad­di­tional stress,” says an­other in­sider. But he de­cided not to walk her down the aisle be­cause, he told TMZ, he felt bad about pos­ing for “stupid and hammy” pho­tos of him­self read­ing up on Great Bri­tain and work­ing out in the weeks lead­ing up to the wed­ding in ex­change for cash. “This is a deeply per­sonal mo­ment for Ms. Markle in the days be­fore her wed­ding,” a Kens­ing­ton Palace rep said in a state­ment. “She and Prince Harry ask again for un­der­stand­ing and re­spect to be ex­tended to Mr. Markle in this dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion.”
