Father and son Windsor Grey horses Storm and Tyrone will be escorting Meghan and Harry away from their wedding at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle this weekend.
However, reports in the U.S. yesterday quoted him as saying he had decided not to go after being caught co-operating with paparazzi "because he doesn't want to embarrass the royal family or his daughter".
The Telegraph in the United Kingdom has even suggested that if the royal couple don't pick a family member then perhaps Harry's bestie, Guy Pelly might able to get the Megster to the altar.
Markle said his daughter was not angry with him for controversially striking a deal with a photo agency to stage pictures of him getting ready for the big day.
Backtracking on his statements the day before, Thomas Markle told TMZ on Tuesday that he has made a decision to go to the wedding after speaking with his daughter. Speculation in the media is leaning towards Ralph & Russo who designed the dress Markle wore for her engagement photos and the research, which was conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, ranked Ralph & Russo as number three.
Meghan Markle's half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr., told Daily Mail Monday that his father was "deeply embarrassed" by the claims.

Will Meghan Markle's father be at her wedding this Saturday to walk his daughter down the aisle?
Meghan Markle's half sister said Tuesday that their retired father is under an "unbelievable" amount of stress because of relentless pressure from reporters and paparazzi hounding him at his home in Mexico.
"Meghan has been let down time and time again by her father's side of the family, but it's time to stop giving them a global platform and for the focus to shift instead to the incredible relationship Meghan and her mother share". Palace officials said last week that Meghan Markle's parents would have central roles in the wedding ceremony. Suits leading man Gabriel Macht's wife, Jacinda Barrett, who guest-starred in season 2 of the show, spent Mother's Day in London with her children. And the royals are as popular as they've ever been - a stable feature in a changing world.
Rumors have been circulating around who will design Markle's dress.
Asked about the effect on Kensington Palace, after aides repeatedly insisted Mr Markle did not wish to be photographed, she conceded: "I can understand why it would be awkward".
"I think he wants to go to the hospital and get checked out", she said.
