Just hours after Meghan Markle‘s father said he changed his mind and will attend the royal wedding, Thomas flip-flopped again and revealed he won't be walking his daughter down the aisle due to heart surgery scheduled tomorrow.

Thomas told the media he's set to undergo heart surgery at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16 and will not be present at Meghan and Prince Harry's nuptials.

“They doctors will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed,” he told reporters.

Over the past two days, Thomas’s attendance at Harry and Meghan’s upcoming nuptials has been in question. This Monday, Thomas told reporters he would not be attending the royal wedding following his heart attack and photo scandal, but then one day later he had a change of heart.

The reclusive Mexico resident explained that he would like to walk his famous daughter down the aisle after all. He claimed the staged photo drama was “stupid” but not bad enough to keep him away from London for Meghan’s big day.

But, according to reports, Thomas was still experiencing chest pains, and doctors believe his body suffered serious damage after his heart attack.

After spending time in the hospital on Tuesday, doctors told him that he would need to undergo surgery on Wednesday morning and would therefore not be able to attend.
