Prince Harry ‘Open To Experiment' Of Brexit, Claims Meghan Markle’s Father Thomas

A former lighting director for TV soaps and sitcoms, Markle said that he was sad to have missed the ceremony, but also proud of his daughter and grateful to Queen Elizabeth's oldest son Charles for stepping in.

Thomas' comments echo what Meghan and Harry previously said about having children, in their first joint interview with BBC News back when they announced their engagement.

The dad of the newly married Duchess of Sussex opened up in a Monday interview with ITV's "Good Morning Britain" in which host Piers Morgan later divulged that Thomas was paid "a few thousand pounds" to do, according to local reports.

When he told the young couple that he could not attend the wedding, Markle said Harry and Meghan were sad but supportive: "They both said, "Take care of yourself, we are really anxious about you".

Though he changed his mind after speaking with Meghan and Prince Harry, Markle said his medical condition ultimately prevented him from traveling.

He said he watched the event on TV from a B&B in the U.S. after having surgery.

"He's great, an interesting guy, a prince, but my daughter's been a princess since the day she was born", he said. "So that upsets me somewhat".

Meghan's dad said he also spoke with Harry about Brexit, the impending withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. "There has got to be a child in the making somewhere soon".

In the wide-ranging interview, the father of the bride also indicated he had disagreements with Prince Harry about President Trump.

Thomas, who said he's not personally a fan of President Trump, noted that Harry urged him to give the president "a chance" and said that Harry was willing to see how the Brexit "experiment" played out.

He told GMB he had apologised to both the Duke of Sussex and Meghan, adding: "I realised it was a serious mistake". 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.

Harry had apparently led off their very first conversation by asking him how he was feeling.

"So I thought this'd be an nice way of improving my look". Doria Ragland had been the only member of Meghan's family to attend.

Elsewhere in the interview Thomas dished on Markle first introducing Harry to him. "I think eventually, one step at a time, and we'll start a family in the near future", they said at the time. "They called me together and Harry asked for her hand over the phone. Promise me you'll never raise a hand against my daughter and of course, I'll give my permission, '" Thomas said. "And I feel bad about it", he said.

He said Meghan probably had "the good sense" not to invite any of her other relatives because "she would have offended the others" who were not invited.
