Meghan Markle's father Thomas Markle has revealed the his daughter and Prince Harry will be starting a family 'sooner or later.'
Speaking to Good Morning Britain on Monday, Markle said that Meghan, 36, 'has wanted children for a long time.'
'And when she met Harry she spoke about how much she loved him and so there has to be a child making somewhere soon,' he said. 'I don’t think there is a stork in the air yet but I think it will happen sooner or later.'
In the tell-all interview, Markle also opened up about missing Meghan's wedding day on May 19 at St George's Chapel in Windsor due to health complications.
'It was a very emotional moment for me, like I said, I cried about it,' admitted Thomas. '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.'
Thomas also spoke candidly about the moment Meghan told him she was dating the 33-year-old royal.
He said, 'Of course it’s ‘Wow,’ it comes out as a ‘Wow,’ but this is my daughter and she’s certainly a prize for him as well.
'He’s great, an interesting guy, a prince, but my daughter’s been a princess since the day she was born.'
Thomas added that Meghan took her time telling her father.
'The first phone calls were ‘Dad, I have a new boyfriend.’ And I said, ‘That’s really nice.’'
Continued the 73-year-old, 'And then the next call was like, ‘He’s British.’ And I said, ‘That’s really nice.’ And eventually the third time round was, ‘He’s a Prince.’ 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. It’s H'.’
Harry and his father-in-law have yet to meet face-to-face.
Recalling their first chat, Thomas told Good Morning Britain, 'He said ‘Hello Thomas’, and I said, ‘Hello Harry’. It became a conversation back and forth mostly about politics. He was asking me how I was feeling that day, and I was telling him how unhappy I was with the president, or with the idea of Trump, and that’s how it began.'
Thomas continued, 'Then we talked a little bit about how they met and how happy they were with each other, and that was pretty much it for the first conversation.'
