Thomas Markle, Meghan’s estranged father, spoke out on the allegations made during Sunday’s tell-all interview as well as on his relationship with his daughter. The pair have been through a rough patch after Thomas had made a deal with a paparazzi photographer before the royal wedding in 2018.
On Sunday, Meghan admitted that she felt betrayed by her father’s actions and that he had let her down. “I look at Archie, I think about this child, and I genuinely can’t imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain to my child,” she said.
In his interview with Good Morning Britain, Mr Markle said that he had apologised “100 times” and that he always remained there for her when she needed him. He also took the opportunity to take a jab at his son-in-law saying that “We all make mistakes – but I’ve never played naked pool or dressed like Hitler like Harry did.”
Thomas urged Meghan to reach out to him as well. Although he may not agree with what his children do, he said that he will still always love them.
The interview soon turned sour again, however, when Markle was asked about the racism allegations made. He fully sided with the royals, saying that the allegations were BS. Regarding the alleged question about Archie’s skin colour, he said it was probably just a “dumb question from somebody.”
“I don’t think the British Royal Family are racist at all. I don’t think the British are racist – I think Los Angeles is racist, California is racist but I don’t think the Brits are.”
