  • Meghan Markle Prince Harry Thomas Markle

Exactly one month after the royal wedding, Meghan Markle's father Thomas has given his first tell-all interview to Good Morning Britain and spilled some tasty but unexpected tea in the process. "That upsets me somewhat", he told ITV's "Good Morning Britain" in a video interview from the US.

It was announced that Thomas would walk his daughter down the aisle when she married Prince Harry on May 19.

Thomas recalls how Harry asked for his daughter's hand in marriage just before the news of their engagement broke previous year. "They take all kinds of pictures of me making me look negative", Markle said, choking up.

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attend day 2 of Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse on June 15, 2016 in Ascot, England.

The interview saw the recluse claim that Harry had said he was "open" to Brexit and that people needed to "give Trump a chance".

Harry and Meghan were next, with the Earl and Countess of Wessex, and the Duchess waved as they travelled past the packed stands on their way to the royal box.

He went on to say that he was "honored" that the Prince of Wales wound up taking on the role of escorting Meghan partly down the aisle.

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

"For the previous year, photographs of me were always derogatory", he said.

He also said that he had apologised to his daughter and son-in-law for the staged paparazzi photos and that he wanted to "change his image" as he had been presented by the media as a "hermit".

Asked about their Brexit discussion, he said, "It was just a loose conversation about something we have to try". He was asking me how I was feeling that day.

"Our conversation was, I was complaining I didn't like Donald Trump", Thomas recalled.

He told his daughter that he wouldn't be able to make it for her big day before going into surgery, admitting the conversation was a hard one.

"Absolutely, that was from the very start", Thomas said.

The former Hollywood lighting director also confirmed he hadn't warned his daughter or her new husband in advance, but said he hoped he hadn't offended them and that the Royal Family would "understand my feelings as well". I was very proud. "They called me together and Harry asked for her hand over the phone".

He added that he would "love to meet" Queen Elizabeth II.
