Thomas Markle, the father of Meghan Markle sparked serious controversy when it was disclosed that he would not walk his daughter down the aisle for the royal wedding which later broke the internet.
The 73-year-old described how he felt sad about the development which was as a result of a heart surgery.
He also admitted that he was jealous but grateful that Prince Charles who he has never spoken to stepped in at the last minute and walked Meghan down the aisle.
Thomas disclosed in an interview with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, that his decision to pull out just three days before Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry left her sobbing, adding that he cried on the sofa of a Californian B&B as he watched his ‘beautiful’ daughter marry in Windsor on a small colour TV.
His most controversial comments came when he revealed that Harry confided in him that he is ‘open to Brexit’ and also believes controversial President Donald Trump should be ‘given a chance’.
His claims will cause ructions because royals must remain strictly politically neutral – although Harry’s father Charles is known for his outspoken views and numerous letters lobbying ministers.
Later Mr Markle then spoke about his daughter’s desperate wish to have children and said although she is not pregnant he expects the couple will have a baby ‘in the making very soon’.
He is yet to meet his new son-in-law, who asked for his daughter’s hand in marriage on the phone last December, to which he replied: ‘You are a gentleman, promise me you will never raise your hand against my daughter and of course I will grant you my permission’.
Mr Markle was paid a “few thousand pounds” for the tell-all interview with Good Morning Britain and Meghan’s father chose to do it because he wanted “set the record straight”, host Piers Morgan revealed afterwards.
However, it is highly likely that the decision will upset the newlyweds because it is understood he never told them about it and then gave millions of viewers a blow-by-blow account of his private conversations with Meghan and the sixth in line to the throne.
