Meghan Markle’s Dad Talks About Calling His Daughter To Tell Her He Couldn’t Walk Her Down the Aisle

Every headline about Meghan Markle’s life makes me believe that she’s probably the most normal person ever to enter the Royal family.

From Prince Harry letting her know when she needed to curtsy at Trooping the Colour, to almost tripping on her own dress at a wedding to this past weekend…and then there’s the family drama that surrounded her own wedding just a few weeks ago.

The biggest piece of that drama was Meghan’s dad.

First, there were tons of negative-ish pictures of him circulating online. Then, some positive images showing what looked to be him getting ready for the wedding. But oh no, those pictures happened to be staged paparazzi shots (*facepalm*). And then, at the end of it all, heart issues led him to calling his daughter – days before he was supposed to walk her down the aisle – to break the news that he wasn’t going to be able to make it.

My heart just breaks for everyone involved, if I’m being honest.

Meghan Markle, who, I’m sure, just wanted to have a drama-free wedding. And her dad, who just can’t seem to catch a break.

Well, Thomas Markle was on Good Morning Britain today…

He talked about the phone call that he made to his daughter to let her know that he wouldn’t be walking her down the aisle:

He also talked about getting the calls – yes, there were more than one of them – that led him to finding out that his daughter was dating Prince Harry:

And he even talked about his daughter’s desire to have kids and start a family (which I’m sure the tabloids will be running with by lunchtime)…

Something tells me Meghan didn’t have any idea that this interview was happening…
