But the royals also seemed to have a grand old time at the races, with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry joined by Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Princess Anne and many more members of the royal family.
Thomas Markle was reportedly paid £7,500 (approximately $9,875 in US currency) to dish on his private conversations with Prince Harry and his thoughts on the royal family that his daughter recently married into.
On the first day of the five-day event, attending royals, led by the queen, make their entrance in multiple open carriages starting at 2 p.m. local time.
Ms McCorquodale's wedding also made headlines because the bride wore the Spencer tiara, which Diana wore to her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981. Lainey's sources claim he got paid upwards of $70,000 AND revealed the entire interview was arranged by Thomas' other daughter and Meghan's half-sister, Samantha.
Ms Dempsey added: "He's lovely, it's a great thing he is coming to Dublin, I think there will be a big turn-out for him and Meghan".
Meghan carried out her first official solo engagement alongside the Queen last week where they opened a new toll bridge in the northwest United Kingdom county of Cheshire. She knows how to choose who she wants to be with. "As he said, it cost him, really, the trip to go walk his daughter down the aisle because all the stress and pressure from his own bad behavior boiled over and he couldn't get the flight".
"I thought he was vulnerable".
Judi said: "There's still a lot of Markle body language here though especially during a small moment of dithering from Meghan". Yet another bombshell, just like when they learned about Thomas skipping out on the wedding a few days prior. "I'm very happy to have a new son-in-law", said the former Hollywood lighting director who plans to visit London soon to meet the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the rest of the royal family.
"Meghan cried and they both said "take care of yourself, we're really anxious about you", Thomas said.
