Noel Fitzpatrick has finally spoken out on why he decided to leave Prince Harry and Meghan's historic wedding in Windsor Castle early.
The TV vet, 53, was invited to the stunning 2018 ceremony for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when he formed a friendship with Meghan herself after treating her beagle.
Noel had helped 39-year-old Meghan's beagle, Guy, who had broken two legs shortly after she got engaged to Prince Harry, 37.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Noel said he felt "honoured" to have attended the fairytale event, but admits that he felt out of place during the day.
Speaking candidly on the spectacular royal wedding, the TV star said: "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.
He added: “I felt truly honoured, but anyway, I decided to leave.”
Noel also confessed how his anguish stemmed from his uncomfortable footwear which forced him to leave the historic event 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.”
Apparently, the royal-dog-saving vet even spent hours wandering the streets of Windsor wearing just socks on his feet and didn't know where he was staying.
The practitioner finally managed to find his way back to his accommodation and had to soak his "sore feet" in salt water in a bidet.
Meghan, who has just released a children's book, became friends with the Irish bon vet after her pet beagle Guy became badly injured – a matter of days after news was announced of her engagement to Harry.

Channel 4 supervet Noel, known for his bionic surgery techniques, came to the rescue after Meghan's royal clan summoned him in.
Meghan's dog Guy has been described as her "absolute world" and was flown over from Toronto to the UK back in early 2017.
Sadly, the former Suits actress had to bid her other dog, a Labrador-shepherd cross called Bogard, farewell as he was too old to fly.

Meghan, who was said to be "very upset" following her dog's accident, explained: “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.”
Prince Harry was also seen keeping Meghan company as she went to visit her dog at Noel's clinic.
Since the Sussex couple have stepped down from royal duties, they have been living in Montecito, Los Angeles with their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten.
