Thomas told the outlet:

“They were disappointed. Meghan cried, I’m sure — she did cry — and they both said, ‘Take care of yourself, we are really worried about you.’ They said the important thing is that I get better.”

While he was “honored” that Prince Charles stood in for him, he explained:

“I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle … Everybody was watching my daughter and I couldn’t have been more proud. And like I said, how could I ask for a better replacement than Charles? I just wish it could have been my hand holding my daughter’s not his, but I think he was wonderful for doing it.”

Thomas went on to add that he feels like a “footnote” in history and that this has been a very emotional process for him:

“The unfortunate thing for me now is I’m a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history rather than the dad walking her down the aisle. That upsets me somewhat. It was a very emotional moment for me, like I said, I cried about it. I wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle. I wanted that moment. But I’m thankful for everything the way it went. I was very proud. I was very upset that it wasn’t me but the whole world was watching my daughter. I was very happy about that.”

Hate to tell you… but this wasn’t your moment, bb.

When chatting about the Duke of Sussex, Thomas called him a “great, he’s an interesting guy” and revealed how Harry asked to marry Meghan:

“Harry asked for her hand over the phone and I said: ‘You’re a gentleman, promise me you’ll never raise your hand against my daughter and of course I will grant you my permission.'”

When asked about his daughter becoming a royal, Thomas noted:

“My daughter has been a princess since the day she was born.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Thomas talked about what Prince Harry supposedly said about Donald Trump, those staged paparazzi photos, and more. Get all the highlights (below)!!
