10 fascinating things we learned from Thomas Markle's very first interview

"I said, "You are a gentleman".

Markle, who has yet to meet Prince Harry face-to-face, said their initial phone conversations were "very comfortable", even when delving into controversial subjects such as Brexit and U.S. President Donald Trump.

This wasn't the only bombshell that Markle unleashed. Apparently the Duke of Sussex is "open" to Brexit and that Trump should be "given a chance". "We're really anxious about you.' They said the important thing is that I get better". "We're really anxious about you.' They said the important thing was I get better".

Meghan Markle's dad Thomas has been banned from royal events for life after he blindsided the family with his surprise TV interview, has learned.

Her Majesty, 92, opted for a vibrant yellow coat and matching hat, as she was pictured arriving with her daughter Princess Anne.

Thomas was originally slated to walk Markle down the aisle, and she ultimately walked most of the way herself before being escorted by her now father-in-law, Prince Charles.

"The first phone calls were, 'Daddy, I have a new boyfriend, ' and I said, 'Well, that's really nice, '" he says. "I thought she looked very good, I kind of wish she was sitting next to someone".

In the lead-up to the royal event of the year, there was fevered speculation over whether Markle would attend the wedding. They would take pictures of my hand grabbing a beer; they'd take pictures of me getting out of my vehicle, taking the garbage out; they'd take pictures of me buying a toilet and making a big deal out of it.

"I realized it was a serious mistake".

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

Thomas noted that he spoke to both his daughter and Prince Harry and apologized for the stunt. "He looked very handsome and my daughter looked lovely with him".

"I couldn't be more proud of those two and I think they'll do great".

In Thomas' chat, though, he heaped praise on Meghan, saying she's "a prize to [Harry], as well..."

He says the couple, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will probably seek to have children soon.

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan confirmed that Meghan's father had pocketed "a few thousand pounds" but insisted his "ultimate motive was not money".

"Many of the charities I work with can not make progress unless they partner with business".
