Royal wedding 2018: Meghan's dad regrets not walking her down the aisle

Trooping the Colour 2018

The 73-year-old former lighting director, who moved to Mexico after filing for bankruptcy, appeared on Good Morning Britain to talk about the phone call he had with the royal.

Princess Sofia has become one of Europe's best dressed royals, constantly raising the style stakes and putting her own sartorial stamp on the latest trends.

He admitted that he watched the wedding from an apartment where he was recovering after his hospital stay. "She was attractive, It was incredible watching her".

He added: "I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle".

Meghan's fashionable life came under the spotlight last week via comments made by designer Stella McCartney, who made the duchess' evening wedding reception halterneck dress.

"They were disappointed. Meghan cried, I'm sure, she did cry, and they both said, "Take care of yourself, we are really anxious about you", he said. Harry wore a dashing suit and a blue tie (which matched Meghan's dress) for the occasion.

"I was very proud". I was very upset that it wasn't me [walking her down the aisle] but the whole world was watching my daughter.

"How could I have asked for a better replacement than Charles?".

The father of the Duchess of Sussex has said he was not fazed by his daughter marrying into the monarchy.

Mr Markle described Prince Harry as a "great. interesting guy" and revealed they had held conversations about politics, including Donald Trump's presidency, as well as Brexit.

On Brexit he added: "It was just a loose conversation".

Mr Markle spoke of the moment the Duke of Sussex asked for permission to marry the then Ms Markle.

"So, Meghan has been taken away within her first month of being married, aboard the royal train, and I think you only needed to look at their body language and the warmth between the two of them to see just how warmly embraced Meghan has been by the Queen".
