Thomas Markle could not attend his daughter's wedding to Prince Harry on Saturday. His daughter announced Thursday that he would not be going. Earlier this week, Markle made headlines regarding his health, and there was speculation whether or not he'd attend the royal wedding. 

Thomas Markle had surgery on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack last week. He checked himself back into the hospital after experiencing chest pains. 

The "Suits" star's father also made headlines earlier this week when it was revealed he staged paparazzi photos that showed him preparing for the wedding. The patriarch received a lot of criticism when it was reported he was paid for the posed photo op. His daughter, Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha Grant, claimed she set up the paparazzi shot -- not Thomas Markle.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said "I do" on Saturday at St. George's Chapel at the Windsor Castle in one of the most highly anticipated weddings of the year.
