On the 19th of May 2018, the world was watching mesmerized as the lovely Meghan Markle walked down the aisle on the arm of her future father-in-law, Charles of Windsor, Prince of Wales to marry Prince Harry in a touching ceremony.

One man who watched from afar was the bride's father, Thomas Markle. He missed that momentous event in his daughter's life, but he opened up about how Prince Harry asked him for permission to marry his daughter on an interview on Good Morning Britain, and the video was posted on Youtube.

In his interview, Markle, 73, said he had not attended the wedding because of his health, but admitted that he has behaved inappropriately.

"Harry asked for her hand on the phone and I said: 'You are a gentleman, promise me you will never raise your hand against my daughter and of course I will give you my permission'."

Markle was discovered selling staged photos of himself to the press just before the wedding, using his daughter's position for profit.

Markle remarked that his daughter had "made a good pick" when choosing Prince Harry for a husband.

Although members of the Royal Family are expected to remain neutral in political matters, Markle was eager to share Prince Harry's private views with the viewers.

He said that Prive Harry was not a Trump supporter, but had said 'give Donald Trump a chance'. The Duchess of Sussex' father went on to reveal that the Prince was "open to the experiment" of Brexit.

Representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been approached for comment on Thomas Markle's revealing interview but none have been forthcoming.
