Thomas Markle is alert after having successful heart surgery.

He went into theatre today to have stents implanted in his blood vessels after having a heart attack last week.

Im ok. It will take a long time to heal, he told US website TMZ. Staying in the hospital a few more days. Not allowed to get excited.

It is unclear whether he will be well enough to fly to Britain in time for Meghan Markles wedding to Prince Harry on Saturday.

On Monday it was claimed he would not give his daughter away due to concerns he had embarrassed her or the royal family over photographs apparently posed with paparazzi.
