What Meghan's dad made Prince Harry promise before he blessed their marriage

What Meghan's dad made Prince Harry promise before he blessed their marriage

The duchess of Värmland stepped out overnight in a stunning emerald green halter neck dress, remarkably similar to the Stella McCartney gown the Duchess of Sussex wore during her wedding reception to Prince Harry last month.

Speaking about the moment when he told the couple he would not make the wedding, the 73-year-old said: "They were disappointed".

The new Duchess of Sussex's father spoke to Piers Morgan in an interview with Good Morning Britain about his disappointment at missing the royal wedding, which he was too ill to attend following heart surgery, and the phone call he had with his now son-in-law. "Meghan cried ... and they both said "take care of yourself, we're really anxious about you".

Thomas went on to say he was "honoured" that Prince Charles walked his daughter down the aisle.

"I think he was open to the experiment", he said.

His heart scare came amid sensational allegations that he had staged paparazzi photos ahead of the wedding in order to improve his public image. "They would take pictures of my hand grabbing a beer, they'd take pictures of me getting in my auto, taking the garbage out, they'd take pictures of me buying a toilet and making a big deal out of it, they'd take all kinds of pictures of me making me look negative".

The retired TV lighting director confessed he had cried as he watched the royal ceremony on television, describing his daughter as "beautiful", and that it was "incredible watching her".

He said he was still recovering from the operation but added: "I'm doing much better".

"Watching it was hard for me, because I wasn't there, but at the same time..." I was very happy about that.

'The unfortunate thing now is that I'm a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history instead of a dad walking his daughter down the aisle. "That really upsets me somewhat".

Luckily she had Harry by her side, who helped her to stay steady on her feet.

He also spoke about his daughter's desire for children.

Markle said he has been in touch with Harry and conversed with him over the phone multiple times, including that one time Harry asked for his daughter's hand.

And did he think Prince Harry was a Trump supporter?

Thomas noted that he's only ever spoken with Harry over the phone, and claimed the prince shared his personal thoughts on President Donald Trump and Brexit, which is the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

'I sort of disagreed with that'.

However, he said that Harry had rung him to ask permission to marry Meghan, and that he was very likeable.

Thomas said that Meghan had "been a princess since the day she was born", gushing: 'He made a good pick, didn't he?'.
