  • Duchess Meghan’s Dad Says She ‘Cried’ Over Him Missing Royal Wedding

    Duchess Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, revealed that she became emotional when he told her and Prince Harry that he couldn’t attend their May 19 wedding. Thomas told Good Morning Britain, “Meghan cried — I’m sure, she did cry — and they both said, ‘Take care of yourself. We are really worried about you.’ They said the important thing is that I get better.” Thomas was unable to attend the royal wedding in England due to heart surgery he underwent just a few days before. Thomas added “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. That upsets me somewhat. … I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle. [But] I can’t think of a better replacement than someone like Prince Charles.”

  • Duchess Meghan’s Dad May Never Meet Prince Harry

    Weeks after her wedding, Duchess Meghan still can’t shake her family drama. Duchess Meghan Through the Years During a June 18 appearance on Good Morning Britain, Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr., opened up about missing his daughter’s May 19 nuptials to Prince Harry due to heart surgery. “They were disappointed,” the retired TV lighting director, 73, recalled, before adding his daughter “cried” when he said he couldn’t make it. Markle also admitted “it was a serious mistake” to stage paparazzi photos of himself prior to the event. But the apology is hardly music to Meghan’s ears — since her dad blindsided her with the sit-down. “The proper thing to do would have been to let Meghan and Kensington Palace know he was giving an interview,” a palace source says in the new issue of Us Weekly. “He already did damage before the wedding.” Now, adds the source, it’s uncertain if Markle, 36, will be granted access to his son-in-law, 33: “This will definitely have an effect on whether Harry meets Thomas or not now.” This isn’t the first time the Duchess has had to deal with her estranged family drama. Weeks prior to the wedding, some relatives were opening up to the press about Meghan. “It’s the one thing she’s struggled with most since meeting Harry, especially after the engagement,” a source had told Us at the time.
