Thomas was set to walk his daughter down the aisle at St George's Chapel, Windsor, this Saturday, but after a rocky few days, he will not longer be giving his daughter away. Meghan's father pulled from attending the royal wedding after suffering a heart attack and the backlash he received from the staged photos with the paparazzi. From then, he changed his mind a few times, but in the end he underwent heart surgery.
