Thomas Markle reveals how Prince Harry asked permission to marry Meghan Markle

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were attending the wedding of Prince Harry's cousin, Celia McCorquodale, as she married George Woodhouse at a small church in Lincolnshire, England.

In an interview with ITV's Good Morning Britain, Markle discussed his relationship with Meghan and his new son-in-law.

He said: "Our conversation was I was complaining about not liking Donald Trump, he said 'give Donald Trump a chance".

"At that point she said, 'It's Harry.' And I said, 'Oh Harry, okay.' And she said, 'Of course, we'll have to call him H so no-one knows we're talking about Harry. That was his politics, I had my politics".

When asked if he thought Harry still supported Trump, he said: "I would hope not now, but at the time he might have been".

He also asked the Taliban to extend their three-day ceasefire , which is due to end on Sunday, and begin peace talks. Both sides had declared overlapping cease-fires and unarrned Taliban militants had entered Afghan cities Saturday.


Celia McCorquodale is the daughter of Princess Diana's sister Lady Sarah McCorquodale, and the bride wore the same tiara Diana wore on her wedding day to Prince Charles in 1981.

When asked how he felt about the former Suits star's nuptials, he said: 'My daughter has been a princess since the day she was born'. There was no real commitment for it.

"I was honoured, I can't think of a better replacement than someone like Prince Charles".

He claimed Prince Harry is an interesting guy and when he expressed his dislike for Donald Trump, he told him to give Trump a chance. I was very upset that it wasn't me (walking her down the aisle) but the whole world was watching my daughter.

"They were disappointed but they both said, 'Take care of yourself, we are anxious about you.' They said that the important thing was that I get better". "He looked very handsome, and my daughter looked lovely with him".

The 73-year-old described his sorrow at being unable to walk his daughter down the aisle because of heart surgery and admitted he was jealous but grateful that Prince Charles - who he has never spoken to - stepped in at the last minute, reports Daily Mail.

He said he apologised to both Harry and Meghan. "That upsets me somewhat", Markle said.

"It's unprecedented, actually, for the queen to take such a new member of the royal family on the royal train", Nicholl said.

"Royal fans would love for Harry and Meghan to become parents sooner rather than later, should they be lucky enough to start a family".
