In the 90-minute documentary that aired on Channel 5 this evening, a visibly crestfallen Thomas Markle (main, and bottom right, as a boy) described watching his daughter (bottom left, with Harry and Archie, and top right, with her father) walking down the aisle on TV (top left), shortly after he had been released from hospital after suffering a heart attack. He said: ‘I stayed at a safe house and watched the wedding. My daughter looked beautiful. I wish that I could have been there with her. I was certainly appreciative Charles was there.’ An emotional Mr Markle told the interviewer he was ‘jealous’ of the Prince of Wales as he watched the ceremony on television, and that walking his daughter down the aisle was something ‘I really wanted to do’. He added: ‘I admit I cried a bit about that. To this day I can’t forget that moment, she was beautiful. It was a nice wedding.’ The lengthy documentary probed various elements of Mr Markle’s life and his sometimes fraught relationship with his daughter. In the extraordinary film he also reveals the details of his last phone call with the Sussexes on the eve of their 2018 wedding as it emerged he had posed for a paparazzi photographer, a decision he says will ‘haunt me for the rest of my life.’
