Thomas Markle, father of former actress now Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has said that his daughter “would be better off if he died” and suggested Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, if she were alive, would have “loathed the way the Duchess has treated her family.”
Mr Markle made this known in an interview just days before Meghan’s 37th birthday. He claims to have been “cut off completely” by his daughter after telling the world she and Prince Harry want to start a family and slammed the Royal Family for “changing his daughter”.
“I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off,” he told the Mail on Sunday.
74-year-old Markle also revealed that he has not heard from his daughter for 10 weeks following an incendiary interview with Good Morning Britain where he revealed Prince Harry’s views on Brexit and Donald Trump.
Mr Markle first controversy with the Royal Family happened in the days leading to Meghan’s wedding to Harry in May after it was revealed he had faked paparazzi pictures. He would later miss the wedding after undergoing heart surgery just days less than 10 days to the ceremony.
He claims he offered to make a public apology over the scandal but was told by the Duke and Duchess that it would only “make thing worse”.
“They have Meghan treating her father in a way that Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, would have loathed. That’s not what Diana stood for,” Mr Markle added. He also fears that he may never get to see his daughter of grandchildren when they are born as said “I’d hate to die without speaking to Meghan again.”
Mr Markle – who has previously shared his respect for the Queen also had very strong words for her saying: “Who cares these days about a dusty old crown?
‘Okay, maybe it’s been polished, but it’s an ancient institution, stuck in its ways.”
