Meghan ‘cried’ about her father missing wedding, Thomas Markle says

Prince Harry Duke of Sussex and Meghan Duchess of Sussex depart after their wedding ceremony at St. George's Chapel at Wi

Thomas Markle told broadcaster ITV on Monday that he had several phone conversations with Harry, including one in which the prince asked for permission to marry his daughter.

When asked by host Piers Morgan if he believed the prince was a Trump fan, he responded: "I would hope not, now".

"They were disappointed", Thomas said of the royal couple.

The comments will raise awkward questions for Harry, who is expected to remain largely apolitical.

'As long as they're happy and they have a great life and have some attractive children and do good things in the world, I can't ask for more'.

Things came to a head less than a week before the wedding when it was revealed Thomas was paid to stage paparazzi photos.

The father of the woman once known to the world as Meghan Markle, and now as Duchess Meghan of Sussex, is back in the news. "But I'm thankful for everything the way it went".

Since Thomas had to drop out, Harry's dad, Prince Charles, walked the gorgeous bride down the aisle instead, which Thomas said was an honor.

"Watching it was hard for me because I wasn't there, but at the same time, I'm watching my daughter being watched by the entire world and I couldn't have been more proud", he said.

He described the moment he told Meghan he would not be able to walk her down the aisle, admitting he left her in tears. "So that upsets me somewhat".

When asked about details of the Brexit conversation, he said: "It was just a loose conversation..."

Seemingly unfazed by his daughter marrying into the royal family, Mr Markle said she had "been a princess since the day she was born", adding: "He made a good pick, didn't he?"

"They were very forgiving, both Harry and Meghan were very forgiving about it. Meghan said "everything is ready for you".

The pair had spoken in previous phone calls, with Meghan initially telling her father she had met someone, before later telling him her new boyfriend was a member of the British royal family. "Meghan said, 'Everything is ready for you.' Harry said, 'I've got one of my military friends to take care of you when you're here.' It was all set up, it was fine".

Harry is also "open" to the Brexit experiment. "I was jealous, I wish it was me but thank god he was there and I thank him for that".

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.

It remains to be seen if Harry and Meghan - or Charles - will speak to Thomas again anytime soon.
