Then once Markle decided he would in fact attend and walk his daughter down the aisle as planned, it was reported that Markle had suffered a heart attack and he required heart surgery.
According to TMZ, Markle called the media outlet on Wednesday to let them know how he was feeling after his surgery in the morning. "I’m ok," he said. "It will take a long time to heal. Staying in the hospital a few more days. Not allowed to get excited." The Associated Press reported that the surgery Markle had undergone does not usually require a long hospital stay, but it would keep him from flying.
