Not the dad

Meghan Markle was about to become the happiest woman in the world when one of the most important men in her life unexpectedly got the heart attack. Mr. Markle had to miss his daughter’s wedding and, eventually, the traditional walk down the aisle due to the sudden health deterioration and subsequent hospitalization. As a result, Prince Charles accompanied the Duchess of Sussex during her way down the aisle.

Revealing interview

People were still interested in one question: Who is Thomas Markle and what is his opinion about the daughter’s wedding? After a long silence, it has finally happened. Mr. Markle gave the interview where he answered some of the most desired questions the public wanted to know about for so long. He revealed his private conversation with the prince as Harry was asking for Meghan’s hand:

You are a gentleman, promise me you will never raise your hand against my daughter and, of course, I will grant you my permission.

When Thomas told his daughter about the inability to be with her in the most important moment of her life, Meghan couldn’t hold her emotions:

Meghan cried, I'm sure, and they both said, “Take care of yourself, we are really worried about you.”

During the online broadcast, Thomas Markle was so delighted with how gorgeous his daughter was that his eyes also welled up with tears:

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.

Even though he wasn’t able to be there for her during the ceremony, Thomas is happy with how it all ended.

Markle's hype

It seems like more and more Meghan’s relatives are trying to use her popularity, and they do this to promote themselves. Recently, the Duchess’ half-sister Samantha gave another extensive interview where she talked about Meghan and her wedding. The most striking news heard from the woman concerned Thomas. She told the paparazzi photos of their father were staged.

We are glad to hear more and more news from the royal family's relatives. Hopefully, the Markle family will reunite soon, but, unfortunately, Thomas will never be able to witness the historic moment in the life of his daughter again.
