On Saturday, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended the nuptials of cousin Celia McCorquodale at St Andrew and St Mary's Church in Stoke Rochford, Lincolnshire.

Thomas Markle spoke glowingly about Harry during his Monday interview with Good Morning Britain, calling the royal a "gentleman".

Things came to a head less than a week before the wedding when it was revealed Thomas was paid to stage paparazzi photos. "She knows how to choose who she wants to be with", he said. "Promise me you'll never raise your hand against my daughter and of course I give you my permission, '" he said of the phone call.

"The first phone calls were "Daddy I have a new boyfriend.' And I said, 'That's really nice.' And then the next call was like, 'He's British.' And I was like, 'That's really nice.' And eventually the third time around was like, 'He's a prince.' At that point, she said 'It's Harry, '" Markle recalled".

Although Thomas couldn't attend the Royal wedding, he watched it at home. "She was attractive, It was incredible watching her". "As he said, it cost him, really, the trip to go walk his daughter down the aisle because all the stress and pressure from his own bad behavior boiled over and he couldn't get the flight".

Thomas said that he "sort of disagreed" with giving Trump a chance but added, "I still like Harry". Meghan also isn't the only royal who has chosen not to wear her name tag, as the Duchess of Cornwall has also previously omitted wearing the name tag.

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

Thomas also commented on his ex-wife's presence at Meghan's wedding.

He expects that his daughter will have a child with the Duke of Sussex "soon".

"I realised it was a serious mistake". "I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle", he said.

When asked about the possibility of a royal baby being soon on the way, he said his daughter had "wanted children for a long time". "That upsets me somewhat", he recounted.

He also described the moment Prince Harry asked for his daughter's hand in marriage.

When asked about details of the Brexit conversation, he said: "It was just a loose conversation... It's hard to take back", but he admitted they were "both very forgiving". "They take all kinds of pictures of me making me look negative", Markle said, choking up.

He told broadcaster ITV he had several phone conversations with Prince Harry, including one in which the Prince asked for permission to marry his daughter.

Prince Harry was rooting for President Donald Trump's success shortly after the former Celebrity Apprentice host won the 2016 election - or at least according to Duchess Meghan's father.
