Meghan Markle's Dad Says She "Cried" Over News He'd Miss Royal Wedding

Meghan Markle's Dad Says She

Her father Thomas Markle, was meant to be by her side, but ill health forced him to pull out at the last minute, so instead she was accompanied by two pageboys as she entered St George's Chapel, before being met half way by her father-in-law Prince Charles.

And of Meghan Markle's mother, his ex-wife Doria Ragland, who cut a stylish but lonely figure as the only member of Markle's family to attend the wedding, he said: "My ex-wife is a attractive woman".

Markle said that he opted to take part in the interview because he wanted people to know he is a "normal guy" and because he wants to have a good relationship with Meghan and Harry.

She said: "William and Kate's focus was on his job and the children for a while, but they've stepped up their royal duties in the past couple of years". "There has got to be a child in the making somewhere soon".

Thomas Markle revealed that he and his royal son-in-law have had some really engaging conversations about politics, including Brexit and Donald Trump's presidency.

"Meghan cried, I'm sure, she did cry, and they both said, "Take care of yourself, we are really anxious about you", said Markle, 73, recounting the moment when he told his daughter he would not be able to attend the wedding.

In the lead-up to the royal event of the year, there was fevered speculation over whether Markle would attend the wedding. I cried a little watching her.

The ITV Racing commentator said: "I think it is rather lovely if you are watching the Duke of Sussex in these pictures who is just pointing out to Meghan how things work, showing her the horses, showing her the programme because of course this is her first time". "I was complaining about not liking Donald Trump; [Prince Harry] said "give Donald Trump a chance". "Both Harry and Meghan were very forgiving about it".

However, he said he was "honored" Prince Harry's father, Prince Charles, walked Meghan down the aisle.


The only member of the duchess's family to attend the wedding was her mother, Doria Ragland.

Harry had apparently led off their very first conversation by asking him how he was feeling.

It was announced that Thomas would walk his daughter down the aisle when she married Prince Harry on May 19. "That upsets me somewhat", he recounted.

He then went on to explain how his daughter, then actress Meghan Markle, had confided in him that she had a new boyfriend, before eventually revealing he was British, then that he was a Prince they should call him "H" for security reasons. "I think Harry has changed his mind by now".

His claims will cause ructions because royals must remain strictly politically neutral - although Harry's father Charles is known for his outspoken views and numerous letters lobbying ministers.

"I spoke to them both and I apologised", he said. "It's hard to take it back", he said.

In regards to that aspect of the conversation, Thomas mentioned that "It was just a loose conversation about something we have to try. I think he [the Duke of Sussex] was open to the experiment".

The new royal was obviously trying to keep a low profile with a very relaxed look on the big day, however, that hasn't stopped many lusting after her look.
