The former Suits star's father, Thomas Markle, previously said he would not walk his 36-year-old daughter down the aisle, but has since gone back on his word and has insisted he will attend the marital ceremony - health permitting.
Because of the heart attack and the fiasco surrounding the picture, Thomas has now decided not to attend his daughter's wedding to avoid causing any embarrassment to Meghan or the royal family.
Prince Charles and wife Camilla have returned from a visit to Greece, taking a helicopter to Kensington Palace ahead of the royal wedding.
"It is fair to say this bloke is forking us off big time because as far as we are concerned, we have our work cut out already on the big day", a Windsor Police source reportedly (and hilariously) told Express.
In the last 24 hours, Ms Ragland was spotted walking her dogs in LA. "She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this hard situation".

Robinho: Real Madrid would be ideal for Neymar
Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has said he is "a bit bored" by speculation linking him with a move away from the club. PSG picked up four trophies this season, winning Ligue 1, Coupe de France, Coupe de League and the trophee de champion.
He was due to meet the Queen, her husband and other senior members of the Windsor family this week.
Mr Markle said he had a heart attack six days ago and checked out of hospital to attend the wedding, but has now had a change of heart.
According to TMZ he is still receiving treatment for the heart attack, but is hopeful he will be able to fly to the United Kingdom for the wedding.
"Of course I'd walk her down the aisle", he told the outlet.
"Prince Harry and Meghan's first engagement as a married couple comes next Tuesday, when they'll join the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, at Prince Charles's 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration in the Gardens of Buckingham Palace", HELLO!'s Royal correspondent Emily Nash tweeted Monday.
But even if she did ask, he's unlikely to be fit enough to do the job.
The announcement was met with an outpouring of support for both Ms Markle and her father on social media.
