Fox News host Jesse Watters doesn’t care about the royal wedding between actress Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Nor does he care about the controversy surrounding Markle’s father. So, when Martha MacCallum asked him to comment on it, he had no desire to do so. But what he did do is say what he claimed he “didn’t” want to say.
“We look to you for etiquette, that’s why,” MacCallum explained her rational behind asking him.
“You’re right, I’m a little buttoned up,” Watters claimed. “I have a View concept, which I’ve said on The Five. I don’t ever want to bash the ladies of The View because one day I might have a book that I might need to sell on The View.”
Watters explained that this is the same methodology that he intends to follow surrounding the British royal family.
“I don’t want to attack the royals too viciously and say this is a disaster and say her family doesn’t have class and say I don’t care and say I’m bored by it, because one day I might meet the royal family and I don’t want to embarrass anybody,” he closed.
Neither The View nor the British royal family has commented on whether they intend to ever engage with the Fox News host.
Markle and Harry are scheduled to tie the knot on Saturday and the bride’s father will not be on hand to walk her down the aisle. The tradition of giving a woman away dates back to the days when women were considered property by their parents. The idea of giving them away typically also came with a dowry.
MacCallum argued that Markle should simply walk herself down the aisle, unless her mother wants to give her daughter away.

Here are 3 things Americans must hear from Mueller’s testimony: Democratic senator
No one can say with certainty what former special counsel Robert Mueller will tell the American people when he testifies before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees on Wednesday.
But on Monday, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) told CNN's Wolf Blitzer the broad strokes of what Mueller will be expected to say — and what the American people should be listening for if they are not yet convinced President Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses.
"Do you think there are Americans out there who still haven't made up their mind on this issue of impeachment, obstruction of justice, collusion and all of that?" Blitzer asked her. "Have the American people moved on?"
