The journalist said he had spoken to Thomas Markle Sr after he underwent successful heart surgery, with the dad saying he was going “OK”.

But he said the recluse, who lives in Mexico, is unlikely to make it to the big day to walk his daughter down the aisle at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

He said: “I do get the sense he does want to be reunited with Meghan.

“He told us he wanted to be there.”

He added: “He had a change of heart on Tuesday of this week actually, that after speaking with Meghan over text that he felt that he had prematurely maybe made the decision to pull out of the wedding.

“And he had originally felt it would be better for him not to be at the wedding because it would cause further embarrassment, he thought, for the Royal family, and for Meghan, which is the last thing he wanted.

“But at the end of the day he realised, I’m a father, and I want to be there for my daughter, and I want to be part of history.

“Ultimately his health prevented him from being able to do that.”

Kensington Palace today would not confirm Meghan’s reaction to the controversy.

They had previously released a statement, saying: “This is a deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before her wedding.

“She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this difficult situation.”

Thomas Markle has previously blamed his health woes on his son Thomas Markle Jr, saying that the open letter that his son wrote to Prince Harry – blasting the upcoming wedding as a “fake fairy tale” – had caused his heart attack.

Thomas Markle Jr has since backtracked on his claims, overnight saying that his sister was the “best thing to happen to the royals”.

Meghan’s support system has since rushed to be by her side in the lead up to the wedding.

Her mum Doria yesterday landed in London, with the 61-year-old yoga instructor now tipped to walk Meghan down the aisle.

A source told the Sun: “Meghan is holding up OK but she has a lot on her plate.

“She doesn’t really know what to make of her dad’s behaviour. But she still loves him and is concerned for his health. It’s a very complicated situation but she’s really pleased to see her mum.”
