Meghan's family sang her praises

Meghan's sister-in-law and two nephews chatted to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid about her impending nuptials, saying they "couldn't be happier for her". When Susannah asked if they were hurt when they heard Prince Harry say she spent time with the family "she never had", Thomas said: "I didn't take it the way some other people took it, it was pretty light-hearted. They have a great family and she's not used to that… I don't think he was negative, I don't think anything badly of it. Prince Harry is a great guy as far as I know of him."

Sister-in-law Tracey Dooley also sang Meghan's praises, explaining: "She was always very creative, very talented. Vivacious. She always had a tendency to better her environment so what better place for her to be in than right now in this influential role she's in." Speaking about Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, she added: "I can't speak highly enough about him, he's a wonderful man and he obviously did a great job raising her, and raising the rest of his family too… We're thrilled, and so is he."

Asked whether Thomas will walk Meghan down the aisle, the group agreed it would be a lot of pressure on him. Meghan's nephew explained: "It's a big change going from retirement to the national spotlight again… He is reclusive and he does like his privacy." They also discussed whether they would be invited to the wedding, with Thomas explaining: "It would be a great honour but ultimately it's up to Meghan, and Prince Harry. It's going to be a pretty exclusive event. If they feel like they want to invite us we'd be honoured, and if not we're going to be cheering her on."
