Why William and Kate Skipped the Royal Ascot

Why William and Kate Skipped the Royal Ascot

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will make their first official trip overseas to Ireland next month.

In a 30-minute tell-all interview with ITV's Good Morning Britain, Thomas Markle reflected on how he felt watching the ceremony from thousands of kilometres away due to his poor health.

At the time it attracted derision, mirth and utter bafflement from royal watchers, who also compared it to a toilet seat and a giant pretzel.

Ms McCorquodale's wedding also made headlines because the bride wore the Spencer tiara, which Diana wore to her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981.

The royals once again called on Treacy to design their millinery for Harry and Meghan's wedding, with the Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge wearing his creations.

He went on to say that he was "jealous" but "honoured" that Prince Charles was able to walk his daughter down the aisle in his stead.

Though Thomas Markle has not met Prince Harry face to face, they talk politics on phone and he thinks that the Prince is "very nice man, gentleman, and very likable". "I was telling him how unhappy I was with the president, with the idea of Trump", he said.

Prince Harry and Markle received rapturous welcome and later presented a winner's trophy to jockey Frankie Dettori, who kissed her hand. Recollecting the moment, he told Meghan that he might not be able to attend the wedding, the 73-year old technician said that the Suits actress was in tears after hearing the news. It was no different when Meghan attended the Royal Ascot as British royalty for the very first time.

"He looked very handsome and my daughter looked lovely with him".

"He said, 'Hello Thomas.' I said, 'Hi Harry.' It became a conversation back and forth, mostly about politics".

The two-day trip to Dublin, on 10 and 11 July, will be the first time the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been overseas on an official engagement.

Dramatic detail of a long black reed and knot finished off the piece, ensuring Meghan was ready for her day at the races with the royal family.

As they rode into the grounds, people cheered the carriage on and Meghan waved to the crowd - clearly growing more comfortable with the spotlight.

Explaining why the Markles didn't get invites, he said, "Basically some 40/50/60 Markles came out of the woodwork all asking for invitations to the wedding and Meghan probably had the good sense to invite none because she would have offended the others".
