They added that, “Markle was admitted after fearing he was suffering a stroke. Thomas couldn’t actually speak to paramedics, and had to write down his symptoms on a piece of paper.”
Right before Meghan and Harry’s opulent 2018 wedding, Meghan’s dad said he suffered two heart attacks, preventing him from traveling to the UK for the nuptials. That set off a firestorm of speculation that the father and daughter had a strained relationship which was made worse by his absence.
Prior to his reported heart attacks, he’d staged pics of himself getting ready for the wedding which caused alleged consternation for Meghan and the royal family. Markle has been adamant about his medical woes but some, “people accused him of faking the medical crisis for sympathy. He never ended up going to the wedding, after all.”
