Meghan Markle’s father has granted an interview in reaction to his daughter’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Thomas Markle Sr. appeared on Good Morning Britain today, March 9, where his words made it clear he was on the side of the Royal Family.
Speaking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, Thomas Markle reacted to each claim Meghan made during her interview with Oprah.
On Meghan being suicidal and having no one to help her, Thomas Markle said his daughter didn’t have anyone to turn to because she has shut her family out.
He said: “She’s pretty much ghosted all of her family, on her mother’s side and my side, so she really has no one to reach out to.”
Reacting to Meghan’s claim that there were concerns about her son’s skin tone and how dark he might be when he’s born, Thomas Markle said he didn’t think it’s as serious as Meghan is making it seem.
He said: “I have great respect for the royals and I don’t think the British Royal family are racists, or i don’t think the British are racist.
“I think Los Angeles is racist, California is racist (where Meghan lives now), but I don’t think the British are.”
He continued: “The thing about what colour will the baby be, or how dark will the baby be, I’m guessing and hoping it’s just a dumb question from somebody. It could just be that simple. It could be somebody asked this stupid question rather than being a total racist.”
Thomas proceeded to say that he never stopped loving his daughter and hoped there’s still a part of her that still feels something for him. He recalled a Father’s Day post she made on her now-defunct blog, The Tig, where she spoke highly of him.
Asked what he has to say to those questioning why he keeps speaking to the press, Thomas responded by blackmailing Meghan.
He made it clear that if he doesn’t hear from her in 30 day, he’ll talk to the press and he’ll keep going that way every 30 days until he hears from Meghan and Prince Harry.
“When they decide to start talking to me, I’ll stop talking to the press,” Thomas Markle said.
