Seventy-three-year-old Thomas Markle reportedly had heart surgery recently and he remains in hospital according to TMZ.
He was expected to walk Meghan down the aisle.
The palace has not confirmed who will perform that duty now although there is speculation it will be her mother or future father-n-law Prince Charles.
