Prince Harry describes the moment he asked Prince Charles to walk Meghan down the aisle
We're not crying, you're crying!
Apparently, Charles saw the key role as a "fantastic opportunity" after Meghan's own father Thomas Markle pulled out at the last minute.
Harry revealed the story in a BBC documentary for Charles' 70th birthday:
“For him that’s a fantastic opportunity to step up and be that support. And you know he’s our father so of course he’s gonna be there for us.”
The doco is set to air in the UK this week also features Charles' wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, who revealed Harry thanked his father for the gesture at the wedding, whispering "thank you pa".
“I think that was very touching. Sitting where I was, you couldn’t hear what he said. But afterwards watching it on the television, I think it was a very, it was a lovely gesture."
“I’ve been brought up well. You’ve gotta say thank you. Just because he’s my father that doesn’t mean I can just sort of go, ‘okay, that’s all, I’ll take it from here’.
“Though that is what I wanted to say. But I was very grateful for him to be able to do that.”
Camilla added that one of the most touching moments of the wedding for her was when Charles held hands with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland as they signed the registry:
“Seeing my husband actually take the bride’s mother by the hand to sign the registry, is something that moved everybody.
“It’s the things he does behind the scenes that people don’t know about. I don’t think people realise quite how kind he is”.
