The father of the former Meghan Markle, Thomas Markle says he wishes he could have walked her down the aisle during her wedding to Prince Harry.
Thomas Markle told broadcaster ITV on Monday that his daughter cried when he told her he wasn’t well enough to attend the ceremony last month, but was honored to be replaced by Prince Charles.
The 73-year-old Markle, who watched the wedding from California, says he was “very proud” but that “the unfortunate thing for me now is I’m a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history rather than the dad walking her down the aisle.”
He says the couple, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will probably seek to have children soon.
Markle says “She’s wanted children for a long time.”
– Meghan Markle’s dad reveals Prince Harry asked him to give Trump ‘a chance’-
Meghan Markle’s father revealed Monday that Prince Harry told him that President Donald Trump should be “given a chance” and that the prince may have been a Trump supporter.
Thomas Markle made the comments in an interview with ITV’s “Good Morning Britain,” where he also spoke about his daughter’s May 19 wedding and other conversations he’s had with Harry.
He revealed that Harry may have been harboring much more positive views toward Trump than previously thought, claiming the prince once told him to lay off the criticism of the U.S. president.
“Our conversation was I was complaining about not liking Donald Trump, he said ‘give Donald Trump a chance,’” Markle said. “I sort of disagreed with that but I still like Harry. That was his politics, I had my politics.”
