Meghan Markle’s dad Thomas Markle isn’t holding back after his daughter and Prince Harry spilled secrets in a tell-all with Oprah earlier this week.

Following the explosive interview, Thomas, 76, responded by appearing on Good Morning Britain and taking aim at the couple – with the most brutal swipes directed at his son-in-law.

Thomas revealed that ahead of Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding in 2018 – and after he had “betrayed” them by staging paparazzi shots in the lead up, he received a call from Harry while Thomas was recovering from a heart attack.

“Harry had said to me, ‘If you had listened to me, this wouldn’t have happened to you,’” Thomas, who pulled out of the wedding at the 11th hour due to his heart problems, said.

“Me, laying in a hospital bed after having a procedure, I had a stent put here and put here and that was kind of snotty so I hung up on him.”

Taking a further swipe at Harry, Thomas added: “We all make mistakes … but I’ve never played naked pool and I’ve never dressed up like Hitler.”

The naked pool playing and dressing up like Hitler remarks were in reference to two of Harry’s most controversial photos published in the prince’s youth.

Speaking to Oprah, Meghan admitted that she felt betrayed by her father after he staged the paparazzi photos ahead of the wedding.

“I said, you know, the institution has never intervened for anything for us, but they can try to go in and kill this story. But if they do this once, we’re not going to be able to use that same leverage to protect our own kids one day,” she said, adding that she told him they could help him if he told the truth.

“He wasn’t able to do that. And that for me has really resonated, especially now as a mother,” she said.

“And also me saying just full stop, if we use this to protect you, we won’t be able to protect our own children one day. Well, I’m talking about your grandchildren, so I can’t — I mean, I look at Archie. I think about this child and I go I can’t, I genuinely can’t imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain to my child.”

In the Good Morning Britain interview, Thomas confessed he “regretted” the paparazzi photos and had made multiple attempts to apologise to Harry and Meghan.

“I’m very disappointed about it, I’ve apologised about this thing, at least 100 times,” Thomas said.

“The bottom line is I’ve never heard back from Meghan and Harry in any way, shape or form. I would love to hear from them.

“I’ve been pushed around and knocked down for one thing I did, one big mistake I made and I’ve apologised many times.”

He added: “I love my daughter very much. But she’s pretty much ghosted all of her family on her mother’s side and my side.”
