The subject of Meghan's walk down the aisle has been filled with drama all week. Initially, as per tradition, her father was going to walk her down the aisle. But, on May 14, he said he wasn't going to attend her wedding amid a paparazzi scandal (he admitted to collaborating with photographers who shot him prepping for the wedding). He said he didn't want to embarrass his daughter, and he also revealed that he had recently suffered a heart attack. Somewhere along the way, Meghan apparently texted her dad and said she wasn't mad about the paparazzi scandal and was concerned about his health.

Then on May 15, Thomas decided that he wanted to attend the wedding after all. "I hate the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle," he told TMZ. "Of course I'd walk her down the aisle. This is a historic moment. I'd like to be a part of history."

A few hours later though, he said he couldn't attend the wedding because of a scheduled heart surgery, which repaired damage caused by his recent heart attack. Finally, on May 17, the Palace confirmed in a statement that Thomas would not be attending the wedding.
