"Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George's Chapel on her Wedding Day. Hard to take it back", Thomas said.

However, he said that Harry had rung him to ask permission to marry Meghan, and that he was very likeable. I'll get over this'. It was all set up. "Meghan cried - I'm sure - she did cry". "She said "he's British" and I said "that's really nice", and eventually the third time around was like 'he's a Prince'". "I made a mistake and it went wrong". They would take pictures of my hand grabbing a beer; they'd take pictures of me getting out of my auto, taking the garbage out; they'd take pictures of me buying a toilet and making a big deal out of it. The next day, he said that he would attend the wedding-only if doctors signed off on him traveling after he reportedly suffered a heart attack.

It comes after the pair were called the best of friends when they stepped out together at their first solo appearance in Chester last week. "I'm on the mend and feeling much better and doctors are making me lose weight and take better care of myself". Everybody was watching my daughter. "Everybody was watching my daughter and I couldn't have been more proud. The unfortunate thing now is that I'm a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history instead of a dad walking his daughter down the aisle".

He also revealed how Meghan told him she was dating Prince Harry. He looked very handsome and my daughter looked very attractive. "But thank God he was there and thank him for that".

He also revealed he spoke to Harry about politics, and had held conversations with the duke about Donald Trump and Brexit.

Thomas also revealed he made Harry, 33, promise "not to raise a hand" to Meghan, 36, before he would give his permission for them to marry.

When Thomas mentioned he had spoken to Harry about Brexit, Piers pushed the former lighting director for more details. He's a very comfortable person to talk to.

He said: "My daughter is very intelligent". He described how it felt to not walk his daughter down the aisle.

My daughter is capable of anything and she'll certainly be a compliment to the royal family. "Both Harry and Meghan were very forgiving about it". "I look forward to coming to London to meet them soon".

He added: "I want to have a nice, normal relationship with my royal family as well now". "It's an improvement for England".

Kensington Palace, which speaks for Harry and his brother William, declined to comment on the interview, though the statements by Meghan's father may bring unease to the royal family which closely adheres to its politically neutral stance.
