Thomas Markle, 73, dramatically pulled out of his daughter’s wedding, throwing plans into chaos just days before the ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
He said he could not attend the wedding because he was due to undergo heart surgery amid controversy he had staged photos to improve his image.
In an interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Thomas has described the moment he told Meghanhe would not be able to walk her down the aisle.
"They were disappointed,” he told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.
"Meghan cried, I'm sure, and they both said 'Take care of yourself, we are really worried about you'."
"They said the important thing is you get better."
Markle also said he's talked politics with Prince Harry, who told him to give the current administration a chance.
