Meghan Markle’s father, who followed his daughter’s wedding to Prince Harry on TV from California, described it as “emotional and joyful,” and voiced regret he was unable to attend.
Thomas Markle was unable to attend the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after having heart surgery in the US this week, leaving Prince Charles to fill in for him.
After watching the ceremony, he told TMZ:
“My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy.
“I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness.”
Last Monday, the famously reclusive former TV lighting director insisted he could no longer attend after it was revealed that he had been staging paparazzi photos for cash, explaining that he didn’t want to “embarrass” his daughter or the royal family any further. He also said he had recently had a heart attack.
