Duchess Meghan Markle's Dad Reveals the Moment Prince Harry Asked His Permission to Marry His Daughter

Duchess Meghan Markle‘s dad, Thomas Markle, went on Good Morning Britain on Monday (June 18) and discussed how Prince Harry asked for his permission to marry his daughter.

“The first phone calls were, ‘Daddy, I have a new boyfriend, and I said, ‘That’s really nice,’ and the next call was, ‘He’s British,’ and I said, ‘That’s really nice,’ and eventually the third time around was, ‘He’s a prince,’ and at that point she said, ‘It’s Harry,’ and I said, ‘Oh Harry. OK.’ ‘Of course, we’ll have to call him “H” so no one knows we’re talking about Harry,’” Thomas said.

He then spoke about Prince Harry asking for permission to marry the now-Duchess of Sussex.

“Actually, Meghan told me first…then the few times after that, Harry got on the phone with Meghan, they called me together, and 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 give you my permission,” Thomas continued.

Thomas also spoke about his heart surgery, his staged photo controversy, skipping the Royal Wedding and more. Click inside to watch more interviews…

    This guy is real pathetic. He can’t seem to stop his thirst for TV nor shrink his paparazzi boner. Embarrassment of a dad.

    I believe Meghan Markle’s Dad when he says that Prince Harry is a Deplorable Trump supporter. Doesn’t surprise me.

    I would not believe anything Thomas Markle says unless it has been witnessed by at least five people and notarized for a month of Sundays.
