Protective Dad!

Thomas Markle Reveals The WARNING He Gave Prince Harry Before Marrying Meghan Markle

'I really wanted to walk her down the aisle,' the 73-year-old admits.

Thomas Markle’s daughter might have married a Prince, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t going to act protective of his daughter!

Meghan Markle‘s father opened up about the royal wedding and how he felt watching it from his home in an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain. “She was beautiful. I cried a little watching her. I was very proud and I couldn’t see a better moment in my life. The whole world was watching my daughter,” Meghan’s father said. “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.”

Thomas was very thankful that Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, walked Meghan down the aisle to marry her husband, but it’s something he regrets not doing. “It was a very emotional moment. I regretted it because I really wanted to walk her down the aisle. But I’m thankful for how it all went,” he admitted.

Meghan’s father has yet to meet his new son-in-law, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t give him a warning when he asked for his daughter’s hand in marriage! “You are a gentleman, promise me you will never raise your hand against my daughter and of course I will grant you my permission,” Thomas recalled telling Prince Harry via phone the day he asked for Meghan’s hand in marriage.

Thomas gushed about his daughter, “Yeah he’s a prince but my daughter has been a princess since the day she was born!”
