Noel Fitzpatrick, 53, first formed a friendship with Meghan Markle, 39, when he treated her beagle, Guy, after it broke two legs shortly after her engagement to Prince Harry, 37. After his assistance helping her beloved dog back on its feet, the Duchess extended an invitation to The Supervet to attend her fairytale wedding at Windsor Castle back in 2018.
I don’t actually know anybody
Although Noel felt “honoured” to have gone to the event, he couldn’t help but feel slightly out of place.
Opening up on the surreal surroundings of the nuptials, the TV personality shared: “There were canapés, it was a magnificent occasion and also incredibly humbling. I was thinking, ‘What is a farmer’s son doing here? What am I doing here?’ I was feeling imposter syndrome.
“I felt truly honoured, but anyway, I decided to leave,” he added to The Daily Mail last year.
Noel explained how uncomfortable footwear had been the source of his anguish and had eventually forced him to exit the celebrations early.
He continued: “I thought, I don’t actually know anybody. I’m really lucky to have seen this magical thing and I am very happy for Harry and Meghan, because they are wonderful people, but my shoes are killing me.
“I also thought this is all a bit overwhelming. So I asked a lady if she could show me the door out of the castle.”
Once he was back on the streets of Windsor, he suddenly realised he did not know exactly where he was staying and spent “two hours” wandering the streets in just his socks.
Eventually, he managed to find his way back to his lodgings and began to soak his “sore feet” in salt water in a bidet.
The former Suits star became pals with the Irish born vet after her pet beagle was injured just days after the Royal Family announced her engagement to the British Prince.
The dog was so badly injured that they called in the help of Noel, who rose to fame on the Channel 4 TV show The Supervet. Fitzpatrick is known for his bionic surgery techniques
The beagle has been described as Markle’s “absolute world” and was flown over from Toronto to the United Kingdom early in 2017.
Unfortunately before departing to the UK, the actress had to say goodbye to her other dog, a Labrador-shepherd cross, called Bogart, who was deemed too old to fly.

Meghan revealed: “One [dog] is now staying with very close friends and my other, little Guy, he’s in the UK, he’s been here for a while.
“I think he’s doing just fine.”
According to the same publication, Markle was “distraught” and “very upset” following the dog’s accident.
Prince Harry was spotted accompanying Meghan to visit her dog at Noel’s clinic, who managed to patch him right up.
Since then the Sussex couple has stepped down as senior royals.
They are now living in Montecito, Los Angeles with their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten in the United States.
Meghan is yet to return to the UK since ending her royal duties at the beginning of 2020.
While Prince Harry recently flew home to attend his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral at Windsor Castle back in April, but is now back in the states.
