"Meghan cried, I'm sure, she did cry, and they both said, 'Take care of yourself, we are really anxious about you, '" said Markle, 73, recounting the moment when he told his daughter he would not be able to attend the wedding.

Thomas missed out on watching his daughter walk up the aisle.

Drama over whether Thomas Markle, 73, would attend threatened to overshadow Harry and Meghan's wedding, and the political content of his disclosures about Harry may bring further unease to the royal family, who try and remain politically neutral. He's an interesting guy.

However, in their phone conversations, Harry kept an open mind about Brexit as well as Trump, Markle said. "I sort of disagreed with that".

"They said the important thing is you get better". "Promise me you'll never raise your hand against my daughter and, of course, I give you my blessing'".

In the end, Meghan walked down the first part of the aisle unescorted, before she was joined by Charles, heir to the throne.

When asked about details of the Brexit conversation, he said: "It was just a loose conversation". "I was very proud ..."

Thomas described the decision as a mistake, and said he'd spoken to both Meghan and Harry about it after the news broke. But he insisted that he received no money for the shoot, but rather it was done to "change my image". And I feel bad about it. "I apologise for it". I can't do much about it.

"Actually, it wasn't [a hard conversation]".

Seemingly unfazed by his daughter marrying into the royal family, Mr Markle said she had "been a princess since the day she was born", adding: "He made a good pick, didn't he?"

"They were disappointed", he admitted. While walking down a short hill into the church grounds, Meghan appeared to catch her heel on the grass, and started to stumble. They both said, 'Take care of yourself. "Meghan cried ... and they both said "take care of yourself, we're really anxious about you". "I think he (the Duke of Sussex) was open to the experiment".

"She was handsome. I cried a little watching her", Markle said. Her flowing, floor-length wrap dress in a blue-and-white floral pattern by Oscar de la Renta ($5,490, complemented the white fascinator Markle wore atop her signature messy bun and a matching clutch she held in her right hand. I wish it had been me. "That upsets me somewhat", Markle said. But he said his poor health meant that he could not make the wedding on May 19, which was watched around the world.
