Meghan Markle's dad makes baby revelations in Good Morning Britain interview

Cape Town - Duchess Meghan's father, Thomas Markle has given his first TV interview since his daughter married into the royal family in May.

The father of the bride, who missed the Royal Wedding after health issues and media scrutiny, appeared on United Kingdom breakfast show Good Morning Britain to speak about the moment Meghan and Harry realised he would not be at the wedding.

"I was complaining I didn't like Donald Trump", 73-year-old Markle said.

But the decision is likely to upset the newlyweds because it is understood he never told them about it and then gave millions of viewers a blow-by-blow account of his private conversations with Meghan and the sixth in line to the throne.

"At that point she said, 'It's Harry.' And I said, 'Oh Harry, okay.' And she said, 'Of course, we'll have to call him H so no-one knows we're talking about Harry. That was his politics, I have my politics, so".

"She's wanted children for a long time and when she met Harry and she spoke how much she loves him, there's got to be a child in the making, somewhere soon", he said. "She's a smart girl and she made a good pick".

However, he said that Harry had rung him to ask permission to marry Meghan, and that he was very likeable. There was no real commitment for it.

Mr Markle said: "I was honoured, I can't think of a better replacement than someone like Prince Charles".

But, to do so, they needed a few years of cricket that challenges them more than the T20 format before they played a Test match. During the second day of the match and in their first inning, India managed to score 474 runs, by losing all their wickets.

Thomas said he "absolutely wanted" to walk Meghan, 36 down the aisle but chose to watch the ceremony from California, where he was recovering from heart surgery.

Think your friends would be interested? "Meghan cried ... and they both said "take care of yourself, we're really anxious about you".

"She was lovely. I cried a little watching her", Markle said. "I'm going to take you away for the day and show you how this works'".

She said Meghan choosing the sexy style was "the last moment that she could reflect sort of the other side to her ... the joy and the human side" before joining the "serious" royal family.

"I spoke to them both and I apologised".

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said royal fans were keen to hear a pregnancy announcement from Meghan and Harry.

'The unfortunate thing now is that I'm a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history instead of a dad walking his daughter down the aisle. I was very proud and I couldn't see a better moment in my life. I was jealous, I wish I'd been there, I wish it'd been me, but thank God he was there. "That upsets me somewhat".
