He also said that he had suffered a heart attack a week earlier.

"This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding".

The palace refused to confirm whether her father would be attending the wedding on Saturday.

Thomas Markle is now rated at 10/1 to do a U-turn and accompany his daughter to the alter. Well, they were all staged.

His comments to celebrity website TMZ come 48 hours after the British press revealed Mr Markle, 73, had collaborated with the paparazzi, arranging for them to take supposedly candid photographs of him preparing for the wedding. According to family friends he is "devastated" that he has embarrassed his daughter, and that the episode has cast a shadow over the royal family and the forthcoming wedding.

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan will put their honeymoon on hold for their first engagement as a married couple three days later on Tuesday at a garden party to celebrate Prince Charles's 70th birthday.

"This is not what she wants. It was really so that the world could see him doing the healthy things he enjoys doing".

A statement from the palace May 4 said Prince Harry and Markle were looking forward to welcoming her parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, to Windsor for the wedding. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Monday night issued a statement asking for "understanding and respect" for Thomas Markle.

Doctors "will go in and clear blockage, fix damage and put a stent where it is needed", the 73-year-old was quoted as telling TMZ, which said Markle realised it was all but impossible he would be able to walk his daughter down the aisle. Since retired, he has been living in Mexico.

Mr Markle has admitted to colluding with agency Coleman Rayner for the staged pictures.

Markle Sr. reportedly said he posed for the paparazzi photos published last week in order to recast the disheveled image he says the media has created for him over the past year. Although it is unclear if Thomas Markle was paid for the photos, the pictures were sold for about $100,000 around the world.

Markle told the outlet that his daughter tried calling him on Monday when he was away from his phone, and that she later sent a text saying she loved him, was concerned for his health, and has no hard feelings about the whole paparazzi photo-staging situation.

Concluding the interview, Samantha was asked if she would be watching the wedding on Saturday given that she hasn't received an invite, to which she replied: "Of course!"

"I feel that the media have unfairly preyed on him so he, I think he's really been admirable about laying low and not speaking out", Samantha added. The reason for opting out of the royal wedding as stated by Thomas was that he suffered from a heart attack, a week ago.

Other members of the royal family will also be arriving in style in state cars including Bentleys, Rolls-Royces and Daimlers.
