On 19 May, Prince Charles walked Meghan Markle down the aisle in front guests, cameras and a two billion sets of eyes at home. One set belonged to Thomas Markle, who watched the ceremony on TV while “disappointed” he couldn’t be there, a friend has revealed.
Lori Davis, who lives in the same gated community in Mexico as the Duchess of Sussex’s father, shared details of how Thomas spent his daughter’s big day in an interview with The Sun.
Lori, who spoke with Thomas’ permission, told the UK newspaper that he watched the ceremony on TV while eating jelly at a $32-a-night Airbnb property in Mexico.
“Tom watched the wedding by himself. He thought the ceremony was beautiful but I am sure forever he will regret not being there,” she said.
“I’d bought him some Jell-O and a fruit salad which he ate while he watched it.”
