Thomas Markle Watched Royal Wedding While Alone in $30-Per-Night Airbnb
"My daughter looked beautiful," he told his host.
As the whole world watched the royal wedding, the father of the bride sat alone in an Airbnb.
Thomas Markle, 73, followed every moment of the ceremony on a TV in a reported $30-a-night apartment in Tijuana, Mexico, all by himself.
It was a bittersweet moment for Markle, who may regret missing the chance to walk his daughter down the aisle for the rest of his life.
He reportedly told the woman who rented the apartment, "My daughter looked beautiful."
As he left a Chinese restaurant in San Ysidro, Calif., Tuesday, he didn't want to talk about the wedding when paparazzi caught up with him.
His daughter, Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, is attracting kudos for carrying out her first official engagement with royal aplomb following her appearance Tuesday at Buckingham Palace.
Her demure new conservative look is straight out of the fashion playbook of her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton. The Duchess of Cambridge also shifted to a conservative look since becoming royalty.
However, the former "Suits" star added her own "Markle sparkle" as she sashayed at the palace during the event.
