    It feels like forever ago now, but Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding day was only a month ago.

    Taking place at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, everyone from Kate Middleton to Prince Charles and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland was in attendance.

    But sadly, the father of the bride, Thomas Markle, had to miss the ceremony due to undergoing heart surgery shortly before the big day. Instead, Prince Charles escorted Meghan up the aisle.

    Following the nuptials, it was thought that both she and Prince Harry would soon be going to Mexico to pay a visit to her father.

    However, Mr Markle has since confirmed they won’t be paying him a visit any time soon – and the reason why is a pretty good one.

    ‘I told them I thought it was fabulous and she looked beautiful, and they talked about coming to see me,’ he told Good Morning Britain. ‘I said it’s a bad idea especially as the press would eat everyone alive.

    ‘I said I’m healing and I would wish they would go on a honeymoon,’ he added. ‘They should get away from everybody for while.’

    While we’re excited to hear all about the royal couple’s honeymoon, we hope for Meghan’s sake that she gets to see her dad again soon!
