This is actually really sad.

Meghan Markle has just confirmed that her father Thomas will not be in attendance at her wedding to Prince Harry on Saturday, in a statement released by Kensington Palace.

"Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding. I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health. I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday," the statement read.

Mr. Markle underwent heart surgery yesterday, after reportedly suffering a heart attack seven days ago, but a lot of people think he's skipping out on the nuptials because he's embarrassed he staged paparazzi photos for a profit.

Her mother Doria Ragland, however, is already making the rounds in the UK. She had tea with Meghan, Harry, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla this afternoon, and is the front runner to walk her daughter down the aisle now.

As they say, the show must go on!
