It was revealed earlier in the week that Meghan Markle’s dad Thomas Markle had hoped to attend his daughter’s wedding to walk her down the aisle, though sadly, he couldn’t make it out of California due to health issues.
A statement from Meghan via Kensington Palace read: “This is a deeply personal moment for Ms Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr Markle in this difficult situation.”
But although he couldn’t make the trip, his daughter’s wedding wasn’t far from Thomas’s mind.
As reported by Sky News, Meghan’s 73-year-old father happily spoke to the press earlier today, gushing over his daughter on her big day, which we assume he witnessed through a nearby TV set.
He said: “My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy. I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness.”
Thomas also described watching the royal ceremony as “emotional and joyful.”
The Markle’s approach to the royal wedding has been widely scrutinised by the media, with Piers Morgan chiming in recently concerning Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha, who the now royal doesn’t have a relationship with.

Whilst live interviewing Samantha on Good Morning Britain, Piers directed a few scathing remarks towards the American.
“There’s no bigger media vulture in this wedding than you. How you have the gall to come on here and talk about media vultures,” he said. “You are doing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister! You’ve been trashing her for two years.”
Hopefully, the whole mess can be swept under the carpet after this weekend.
