Meghan will want to have kids soon, says father

By Alexander Britton

The Duchess of Sussex's father has said he expects his daughter will want to have children soon, and that she cried when he revealed he would not be attending her wedding.

Thomas Markle said he broke the news to Meghan about his absence in an emotional phone call just days before she was due to walk down the aisle in Windsor Castle's St George's Chapel.

The 73-year-old watched the wedding from California, where he was recovering from heart surgery.

Mr Markle said: "They were disappointed. Meghan cried and they both said 'Take care of yourself, we are really worried about you'.

"I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle.

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

Adding that he was recovering well from his surgery, which saw him have three stents fitted, Mr Markle said he was "honoured" that the Prince of Wales took on the job of walking Meghan down the aisle instead.

"I can't think of a better replacement than someone like Prince Charles," he said.

"I was very proud. I was upset that it wasn't me (walking her down the aisle) but the whole world was watching my daughter."
