That doesn't seem to be happening anymore, though. A latest report even claimed that he will have a heart surgery on Wednesday morning and therefore, can not attend his daughter's wedding on Saturday.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to Wednesday in a matter of days at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, and with the bride's father Thomas Markle now reportedly unable to attend, people have been wondering who will walk the bride down the aisle.
Obsessed with the royals?
Thomas said he was pulling out of the royal wedding in the wake of the fake paparazzi photos earlier this week, then he changed his mind. Thomas explained to TMZ that he did this in attempt to "recast" his image after photographers "ambushed" him several times and took "unflattering" shots of him.
The royal wedding is expected to provide the British economy with a $1.4 billion boost so it makes sense that brands are hungry to get a cut of the cash. Meanwhile, the reports about who exactly has designed Meghan's royal bridal gown has been quite rife. This was all because of the staged pics.
A spokesperson for the palace declined to comment on the matter to HuffPost on Monday, though they later issued a statement after much speculation.
Ms Markle and Harry are both deeply concerned for Mr Markle's welfare and are likely to put that priority above the tradition of a father walking his daughter down the aisle.
He said that the heart attack he reportedly suffered last week caused major damage.
Ragland, who will spend the night before the wedding with her daughter in the five star Cliveden House hotel and accompany her to the chapel, has arrived in Britain and was due to meet the 92-year-old queen and her husband Prince Philip, 96.
Including dogs in your wedding day is part of a wider trend, according to Inside Weddings, and photos that Meghan previously posted online show Guy in a knitted union flag jumper, so he might be persuaded to wear a themed outfit and be on his best behaviour.
