The question of whether Meghan Markle's father will walk his daughter down the aisle to marry Britain's Prince Harry or attend the wedding persisted Wednesday as royal representatives remained tight-lipped on possible changes to the program.

Thomas Markle Sr, 73, is reportedly undergoing heart surgery on Wednesday, according to the United States celebrity website TMZ through which, after months of silence, the retired TV lighting director now appears to communicate.

"Of course, I'd walk her down the aisle", he reportedly said. Her estranged half-sister, Samantha Grant, said she would not stop talking to the media before the royal wedding.

"I think they will add a charm to the big day, and one of them will probably end up upstaging the bride - and it might well be Princess Charlotte", she said.

Staging the photos was meant to counter the way he had been "so unfairly presented in the media as being sort of shabby".

According to rumors, the pair will instead be known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after they Wednesday.

Meghan's half-brother Thomas Markle Junior accused her of shunning the family in an open letter last month.

Later, she also shared pictures of London landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye on Facebook.
