Serena Williams' Opens Up About Her Dad Not Walking Her Down Aisle

Meghan Markle may want to call her good friend Serena Williams for advice about what to do when your dad bails on your wedding. 

On her HBO docuseries this week, Williams revealed that her father backed out of walking her down the aisle an hour before her nuptials November 2017 nuptials. 

"He was in town. He had a suit. And I know he was really excited," says Williams, who wound up walking herself down the aisle. "But then he wrote me and said, 'Serena, I don't want you to be mad at me, but I just can't walk you down the aisle. I'm not myself anymore. I'm too nervous.' 

I wrote right back and I said, 'Daddy, it's OK. If you don't want to come to the wedding at all, that's OK too. I'm not going to be upset with you about it." 

She added, "I know the struggles he has had these last few years. His health is better now, but I know he still doesn't feel like himself...If he doesn't want to be out there in front of a lot of people, I completely understand."
