Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, who tied the knot at Windsor Castle in May, certainly dressed to impress for the outing, with the duchess donning another Givenchy ensemble, which she teamed with a Philip Treacy fascinator. Markle underwent a heart surgery just weeks before the wedding and cited privacy as the key reason for his absence.

Meghan and Harry arrived in the royal carriage procession alongside Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

In his first interview, Meghan's father told Piers Morgan that he watched his daughter getting married on television as he was recuperating at a Californian B&B.

Thomas explained how he apologised to Harry and Meghan after it was discovered that he did a cash deal with the paparazzi to improve his image ahead of the royal wedding.

"He said, 'Give Donald Trump a chance.' I sort of disagreed with that. It's hard to take it back".

Thomas said he was "honoured" that Prince Charles stepped in to give Meghan away at the royal wedding after he was unable to attend.

"They called me together and Harry asked for her hand over the phone".

In an emotional on-air message to the couple he said: "I send my love to both of them". "I can't think of a better replacement than someone like Prince Charles", he raved.

He also said the sixth in line to the throne appeared "open" to the idea of Brexit when they had a "loose" talk about it.

The race went to Without Parole - ridden by Italian legend Frankie Dettori and trained by John Gosden - whose Canadian owner John Gunther said it was the best day of his life.

"My daughter is very intelligent".

"It was incredible watching her".

He told Good Morning Britain his new son-in-law is "great" and "an interesting guy", even though they are yet to meet, and added Harry "made a great pick" in the former Suits actor.

"I was complaining I didn't like Donald Trump". I was very proud.

"There was no real commitment to it".

Harry and Meghan have been invited to Australia and New Zealand by the countries' respective governments, while the royals will visit Fiji and Tonga at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the official statement from Kensington Palace said at the time.

"Many of the charities I work with can not make progress unless they partner with business".
