Meghan Markle’s Father Gives First Interview Since Royal Wedding (Video)

American Actress Meghan Markle, who wed British Prince Harry a month ago, was unfortunate enough not to have her father present during her wedding, as he had heart surgery during that period.

Appearing for his first ever television interview, Mr Thomas Markle came on Good Morning Britain with presenter Mr Piers Morgan yesterday to talk about all that had been happening in his life over the past year.

Amongst others, Mr Markle revealed that Harry asked for her hand over the phone. He told the British Prince: “You’re a gentleman. Promise me you’ll never raise your hand against my daughter, and of course, I give you my permission.”

Asked whether he wanted to be at the wedding, he admitted: “Absolutely, I wanted to do that.” Unfortunately, because of poor health, Mr Markle was not able to make it eventually, as in the run-up to the wedding things changed and the paparazzi tried to catch up with Mr Markle wherever he went. In the end things got too stressful for him, he became ill and Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, took over and walked Meghan down the aisle.

Mr Markle also discussed politics with the British Prince apparently, as he stated Harry told him: “I’ve always have a bad attitude about Donald Trump and that’s never going to change.”

“My God, I’ve got to apologize to the rest of the world for my president. All Harry actually did was say because Trump was new, he said: Give him a chance.”

Given the size of the British press, the scoop that Good Morning Britain obtained, of course, caused some friction with rival publications.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Thomas Markle was paid &#39;a few thousand pounds&#39; for his interview with <a href="">@GMB</a> today. There was no Kensington Palace approval for this. He is entitled to accept payment, of course, but it does raise questions about his ongoing relationship with daughter Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.</p>&mdash; Rebecca English (@RE_DailyMail) <a href="">June 18, 2018</a></blockquote>

Therefore, today various royal correspondents are reporting that Kensington Palace did not give Mr Thomas Markle an official approval for this TV interview and that he was apparently paid “a few thousand pounds” for his appearance.
