Meghan Markle's father talks royal wedding in first tell-all interview

Trooping the Colour 2018

Markle also said that during a "loose conversation" with Harry, the prince had said Brexit was "something we have to try" although "there was no real commitment to it".

Markle also claimed that he discussed politics with his new royal son-in-law, including the United States president and Brexit.

Thomas Markle is a 1962 graduate of Newport High School in Perry County, Pennsylvania.

Thomas Markel Sr. was set to walk his daughter, a future royal, down the aisle of St. George's Chapel on May 19, but a scathing photo scandal and health concerns resulted in him having to cancel last minute, throwing a royal flaw into an otherwise ideal day.

During the interview, the dad of the former "Suits" actress expressed sadness for not being able to attend his daughter's wedding and walk her down the aisle but did note he watched the wedding on TV.

"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.

The father of the former Meghan Markle says he wishes he could have walked her down the aisle during her wedding to Prince Harry.

When asked about the possibility of a royal baby being soon on the way, he said his daughter had "wanted children for a long time".

Mr Markle said: "I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle". "And I said, 'I have to cancel".

Trump orders US military to form ‘Space Force’
But some, including two Republican members of the House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee, backed the initiative. Saying that he does not want " China and other countries leading us", Trump said space was a national security issue.

He said he thought his daughter's husband was a "great" and "interesting guy".

He recalled: "Harry asked for her hand on the phone and I said: "You are a gentleman, promise me you will never raise your hand against my daughter and of course I will grant you my permission". "Both Harry and Meghan were very forgiving about it". They're great and I love then dearly. "I had a heart attack", he said.

"My daughter is capable of anything and she will be a complement to the royal family".

"This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding", the palace statement said at the time.

"I realized it was a serious mistake", he said of the photos. "I'm on the mend and feeling much better and doctors are making me lose weight and take better care of myself".

It remains to be seen if Harry and Meghan - or Charles - will speak to Thomas again anytime soon. "I sort of disagreed with that". "And I said, 'That's really nice.' And then the next call was like, 'He's British.' And I said, 'That's really nice.' And eventually the third time round was, 'He's a prince, '" Markle said. It went wrong. I spoke to them [Meghan and Harry] and I apologized. Harry is also "open" to the Brexit experiment.

"I want to have a nice, normal relationship with my royal family as well now".

He continued: "I would love to meet the Queen".
