Meghan's father sorry to have missed wedding to Britain's Prince Harry

Meghan's father sorry to have missed wedding to Britain's Prince Harry

The 73-year-old double Emmy award-winning former lighting director is reported to have suffered a heart attack days before the wedding.

Thomas' comments came in the wake of his daughter's wedding, which the president did not receive an invitation to attend.

"That was a mistake", Thomas told Good Morning Britain of the decision to take part in the staged photos. "Meghan cried ... and they both said "take care of yourself, we're really anxious about you".

He added that Meghan and Harry wanted him to walk her down the aisle "from the very start" and noted that Harry had given him advice on how to handle the encroaching press.

"How can I ask for a better replacement than Charles?" They both said, 'Take care of yourself. "Hard to take it back", Thomas said.

"Everybody was watching my daughter and I couldn't have been more proud", said Thomas. "I'm very happy to have a new son-in-law". "That upsets me somewhat", he said.

Mr Markle told GMB he broke the news that he would not be there in an emotional phone call with his daughter and Prince Harry.


Also on hand were Diana's sisters, mother-of-the-bride Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellows, who performed a reading at Harry and Markle's wedding, as well as Diana's brother, Earl Charles Spencer, and his wife, Karen.

It remains to be seen if Harry and Meghan - or Charles - will speak to Thomas again anytime soon. I'm paying for those things for the rest of my life. "I was complaining. I didn't like Donald Trump". "I sort of disagreed with that but I still like Harry".

However, in their phone conversations, Harry kept an open mind about Brexit as well as Trump, Markle said. "My daughter has been a princess since the day she was born".

"I'm told by palace sources that it was the Queen who personally invited Meghan to Cheshire", Nicholl added.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's likely views on Trump raised questions about whether they would be present to meet the US president and first lady Melania Trump when they visit Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle next month.

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 US president.

The incident didn't derail plans for him to attend the ceremony in Windsor, England and Meghan had organized everything for him, including suit fittings, help with a speech, and someone to look after him in England, so Thomas "feels bad" that he had to pull out after having major heart surgery.
