Meghan Markle [1]'s dad, Thomas, will not be walking his daughter down the aisle [2] on Saturday. During an interview with TMZ on Monday, the former Emmy-winning lighting director [3] confirmed that he won't be attending the royal wedding [4] after he was caught staging photos of himself with the paparazzi in the weeks leading up to Meghan and Prince Harry's nuptials [5].

According to Thomas, he meant no harm to Meghan or the royal family when he made a deal with a photo agency, but he did admit the pictures looked "stupid and hammy." He also said that he's been offered anywhere between $50,000 to $100,000 for interviews, but he's turned them all down.

In addition, Thomas revealed that he recently suffered a heart attack, but he checked himself out early so that he could attend. However, Thomas has now decided not to go [6] because he doesn't want to embarrass Meghan or the royal family. Bummer.
