'She threw me under the bus': Meghan Markle's father Thomas slams her over 'lost my dad' comment
The 78-year-old claimed his daughter 'dumped him' after meeting Prince Harry and he wanted to meet the prince and his grandkids
ROSARITO, MEXICO: Meghan Markle’s father Thomas Markle Sr recently said that his daughter didn’t “lose him” and that she threw him “under the bus." His comments follow some confusion over the Duchess of Sussex's musings in a recently published interview with The Cut.
In the interview, she said, "Harry said to me, 'I lost my dad in this process.'" Hours after her remarks were published, Meghan’s unofficial spokesman, Omid Scobie, wrote on social media, "I understand that Prince Harry is actually referring to Meghan’s loss of her own father, Thomas Markle and Meghan is saying she doesn’t want Harry to lose his."
Markle, who was diagnosed with a blood clot in his brain earlier in 2022, said, "I am still very ill and trying to recover from the stroke in May. Yet every time she opens her mouth she brings me into the story. it never ends" Speaking falteringly to The Daily Mail from his home in Rosarito, Mexico, the 78-year-old said, "She didn't 'lose' me, she 'dumped' me. I am not lost. She knows where to find me. My number hasn't changed. I would love to hear from my daughter and meet my son-in-law and my grandkids for the first time."
The 78-year-old had something to say about Meghan's on the importance of forgiveness."If she really believes in forgiveness, then why can't she forgive me? I have apologised to her multiple times for any hurt and pain I might have caused her. I love my daughter. She talks about forgiveness, so why not start with her own family? What about forgiving me?" he said.
Thomas added that every interview his daughter does causes him much stress. He said he also felt sorry for the Queen. "She is a 96-year-old lady who has given her life to her people, and she doesn't deserve this when she is also in poor health. I do feel sorry for her and wish her all the best and hope she feels better soon. It can't be easy for her to read all these things my daughter is saying," he said.
