Meghan Markle's dad makes baby revelations in Good Morning Britain interview

Meghan Markle's dad makes baby revelations in Good Morning Britain interview

After a few days of feeling better, the heart issues returned and he needed emergency surgery: 'The doctors said 'This is what doctors call the widow maker.' It would have killed me'.

But in a new interview with "Good Morning Britain," his first since the wedding, Thomas said he regrets the way things played out.

Eventually the third time around was like, "He's a prince" and at that point she said, "It's Harry" and I said, "Oh Harry, OK". Thomas Markle apologized for working with paparazzi to stage the photos; he said he hoped they would present a more positive image of himself to the world.

Speaking about why he initially thought it was a good idea, Thomas told GMB's Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: "This was a presentation to me, to change my image because in the previous year photographs of me were always derogatory, so I thought this would be a nice way of improving my look". Like I say, I'm a footnote rather than the dad that walked his girl down the aisle. "That upsets me somewhat".

Prince Harry was rooting for President Donald Trump's success shortly after the former Celebrity Apprentice host won the 2016 election - or at least according to Duchess Meghan's father. The retired lighting director, who is recovering from a heart operation, sadly couldn't attend the royal wedding last month, and has never met Harry in person. "It's hard to take it back".

He said he had apologised to both Harry and Meghan. "Promise me you'll never raise your hand against my daughter".

He added that Meghan and Harry wanted him to walk her down the aisle "from the very start" and noted that Harry had given him advice on how to handle the encroaching press. "I think Trump has had his chances a hundred times now".

"I thought this was a nice way of me improving my look".

Trumps orders Pentagon to create ‘space force’ branch of military
The Pentagon and NASA track more than 500,000 pieces of space junk circling the Earth, including about 1,730 operating satellites. The committee feels strongly that the US military has to be better prepared and equipped to dominate in space , Thornberry said .

"For the previous year, photographs of me were always derogatory", he said.

Markle said the most important phone call was when Prince Harry asked for his blessing to marry Meghan.

Thomas Markle also told "Good Morning Britain" on Monday that Harry was "open to the experiment" of Brexit, the decision for the U.K.to leave the European Union. I'm paying for those things for the rest of my life.

Mr Markle said: "As long as they're happy and they have a great life and have some handsome children and do good things in the world, I can't ask for more". I just wish it had been my hand holding my daughter, not his.

"I don't think the stork has hit the air soon but I think it will happen soon".

When asked about his new family, Mr Markle said he wanted to have "a nice, normal relationship" with the royals.

He continued: "I would love to meet the Queen. Very likable", he said of the 33-year-old prince. The royals are very complicated, but she can always rise to that occasion.
