Meghan Markle’s dad says ‘weak’ Prince Harry was ‘cheated’ by Oprah – –

Meghan Markle’s father has claimed Prince Harry was ‘fooled’ into ‘saying things you just shouldn’t say on TV’ during his conversation with Oprah Winfrey.

Thomas Markle, 76, called his son-in-law “a very weakened man” and accused Oprah of “playing” her daughter.

He told the Australian TV show 60 Minutes: “I have things to say. Oprah Winfrey, for my part, I think she plays Harry and Meghan.

“I think she uses them to build her network and build her new shows and I think she took advantage of a very weakened man and made him say things that you just shouldn’t say on TV.

“She won’t agree, of course, and she might even sue me, I don’t care.” But the main thing is that she works Harry.

The Hollywood lighting engineer has been estranged from his daughter for three years for claiming he staged photos for money.

They have reportedly not spoken since her marriage to Prince Harry in 2018, after he stepped down from Meghan’s walk down the aisle due to heart surgery. He has yet to meet Harry or his grandson Archie, who is now two years old.

He further criticized the ‘cold’ couple for refusing to see him – despite living only 70 miles from their £ 11million Los Angeles mansion.

Thomas said even “ax assassins” were visited by their families and said he was “disappointed” to have to find out about his new granddaughter through a public statement.

“My congratulations Harry and Meghan,” he said.

‘I discovered [Lilbet’s birth] after the face and I have to take care of it and that’s okay. There is always disappointment here.

“Lili is perfect and the other thing that makes me happy is that there is a lot more Markle blood in the royal family. “

He continued, “All I can say is that I hope I end up seeing my grandchildren. I am a pretty good grandfather.

“On August 4, 40 years ago, Meghan was born by Caesarean section and I was the first to hold her in my arms. I fell in love with her and have been like this ever since.

“I will be very disappointed if I cannot hold my granddaughter in my arms. “

The grandfather has been very critical of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following the explosive interview with Oprah earlier this year, in which Meghan said her father had ‘betrayed’ her and that she “found it hard to come to terms” with him.

Thomas said he felt the couple had “ghosted” their two fathers.

About Harry he said, “I think we would get along pretty well [if we went for a drink together] and I think it’s unfortunate what happened to him too.

“He seems to be a nice guy and I appreciate that he walked my daughter down the aisle.

“I certainly couldn’t have asked for a better replacement, although I would have liked to have done it myself. “

He added, “I see them both completely ghosting their families and now they’re alone in a huge house where they can probably accommodate 20 people, but it’s only four.

“I don’t think they’re going to invite relatives over for a barbecue next week or next month. I do not know why.
