Not only is Thomas Markle frustrated that he has no relationship with his daughter, Meghan Markle, but he also had a bone to pick with her husband, Prince Harry.
"I'm surprised Harry never bothered to come and visit me, or ask for my daughter's hand in marriage," he said during an interview with GB News. "I thought that would be the first thing a royal would do, but he never bothered to come down, he asked for her hand over the phone. I’d think a man like him who could have a plane at his disposal at any time would have come down to see me and talk to me. He did not."
The former lighting director also slammed his daughter for not telling the truth when she was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, which aired in March.
"She lied. She's been lying for years. Lying about the archbishop? How can you say, 'We've been married three days before we got married?' Her lies are so obvious, I don't know why she says them," he said, referring to when the former actress claimed she got tied the knot before her May 19 wedding.
"This is since Harry. Harry has influenced it," he claimed. "She's changed, she's not the daughter I knew. My daughter was a much more giving, loving person than she is now. I don't know if he's the one behind it, but I really think that Harry and some of her friends have changed her. I love my daughter, but I don't always like what they're doing."
Meghan and Thomas haven't been on good terms since he betrayed her before her wedding to Harry in 2018. "I was laying in a hospital bed talking to them, telling them I couldn't come to the wedding, and they haven't talked to me since," he said. "If your parent was in hospital, wouldn't you be concerned — even if you were mad at them? Wouldn't you be concerned if they'd live or die?"
