Meghan Markle Attends Her First Royal Ascot in Audrey Hepburn-Inspired Look

Thomas Markle with his daughter Meghan as a newborn

Instead, he cried as he watched on television in a rented Los Angeles room as Prince Charles - who he has never spoken to - did the honours for "beautiful" Meghan.

"More than anything I don't want my daughter or my new son-in-law to be hurt by this", he said.

"The unfortunate thing is I am now a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history rather than the Dad walking her down the aisle".

"I think he was open to the experiment", added Markle.

When asked if he thought Prince Harry was a "Trump supporter", Markle said: "I would hope not now but at the time he might have been". They were seen blushing and making eye contact while the ceremony was in process.

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

Harry and Meghan have already announced that they will visit Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand later this year for their first overseas tour as a married couple. The couple exchanged rings while looking each other in the eyes.

The Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were also in attendance.

Harper's Bazaar US wrote the dress appeared to be "a little baggy on the Duchess, but the floaty fabric, and her matching fascinator, created the ideal outfit for the summer nuptials", proving the point that dressing for a day wedding is tricky, even for a royal.

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

Instead Meghan chose to carry her royal box badge in her hand, toting it along with her neat Givenchy clutch bag.

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 was his politics", Mr Markle said. I still like Harry. There was no real commitment for it. I felt sorry for him and I know what's going to happen.

Markle also admitted "it was a serious mistake" to stage paparazzi photos of himself prior to the event.

"I thought this was a nice way of me improving my look".

He said he had apologised to both Harry and Meghan. 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. Markle underwent a heart surgery just weeks before the wedding and cited privacy as the key reason for his absence.

"Meghan cried and they both said "take care of yourself, we're really anxious about you", Thomas said.

"I was very upset that it wasn't me [walking with her], but the whole world was watching my daughter", Thomas said of the wedding.

And while the Duchess of Sussex stunned in a monochrome ensemble designed by Givenchy, Meghan's husband Harry was left red in the face after jockey Frankie Dettori jokingly stole a kiss from her.
