The 74-year-old missed the event due to heart surgery, amid a furor after he was found to have received payment for staged paparazzi photographs.

He ended up watching the wedding from California, with Prince Charles taking his place and walking Meghan down the aisle.

The couple are expecting their first child next year, and soon-to-be-grandfather Markle said he was “hoping that everything goes well and I get to see a little Meghan or Harry.

“There has to be a place for me, I’m her father,” he added.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, has faced a barrage of negative headlines in recent weeks over her relationship with royal staff.

Her father ran to her defense, telling GMB that “she’s always been very controlling, but she’s never been rude… she’s always been polite.” /ee
