Markle's dad may still attend royal wedding

It seems Meghan Markle's father has had a change of heart and hopes to attend the royal wedding.

According to TMZ, Thomas Markle says he wants to go the wedding Saturday if the doctors allow it.

Just yesterday he told the celebrity news site he wouldn't attend the wedding because he didn't want to embarrass his daughter or the royal family.

He was heavily criticized after posing for wedding preparation photos taken by a paparazzi agency.

Thomas Markle also says he suffered a heart attack last week.

Today, Markle is quoted as saying he hates "the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle."

Doctors are still performing tests and he's not sure if he'll be released from hospital by Saturday.
