Meghan Markle’s dad has requested an interview to tell “his side of the story,” following Meghan’s tell-all interview with Oprah earlier this month.
And people are shocked by what he’s done…
He asked Oprah to interview him about his row with Meghan…
Who he claims he has not spoken to since 2018.
Scroll on to hear what he had to say…
Now, Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah will be a hot talking point for a long time.
Following their controversial departure from the British monarchy, the former-royals sat down with Oprah earlier in the month to give their side of the story.
Their 2-hour-long interview aired on CBS on Sunday, March 7th…
And viewers watched on in shock as some mind-blowing allegations were made against the monarchy.
It was claimed that senior members of the family had refused to get Meghan professional help when she was experiencing suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy with Archie.
Meghan also addressed that incident with her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.
Headlines were made in 2018 when Meghan allegedly “made Kate cry” in a row about bridesmaids’ dresses in the days before her and Harry’s wedding – well, in her chat with Oprah, Meghan claimed that Kate was the one to make her cry.
Though she did stress that Kate had apologized and that she had “forgiven her.”
She also addressed the ongoing issues of racism within the monarchy.
Meghan claimed an unnamed senior member of the Royal family raised “concerns” about how dark Archie’s skin would be before his birth.
“In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, so we have in tandem the conversation of, ‘you won’t be given security, not gonna be given a title’ and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”
But Meghan wasn’t the only one to spill the royal tea.
Prince Harry himself spoke candidly about his current relationship with his family and how he has been “financially cut off,” which initially left him fearing for the future.
Harry explained that he “had to get out,” though when he did he was “cut off financially” when he and Meghan needed help the most…
He also added that they’ve since been relying on his inheritance from Princess Diana.
“I was totally cut off financially. My family cut me off – if I didn’t have what my mom left me, we wouldn’t have been able to do this.”
“All I wanted to do was keep my family safe.”
Meghan then insisted that they never had any plans at first to quit the U.K – she said the intention was to “do this forever” and that she told the royal family to “use me as much as you like.”
Later in the interview, Oprah asked how the prince thinks the late Princess Diana would have felt about the rifts that drove them to step back from the royal family.
“I think she would feel very angry with how this has panned out, and very sad,” Harry said, “But ultimately, all she’d ever want is for us to be happy.”
Quite predictably, opinion has been well and truly divided over the interview…
With a vast majority feeling sympathetic for Harry and Meghan over what they’ve allegedly endured in the last few years.
But on the other hand…
People have been slamming the pair for agreeing to take part in Oprah’s interview and have even been brandishing them as “liars”… including Piers Morgan, who actually resigned from his job on Good Morning Britain after bosses ordered him to apologize for saying he didn’t believe Meghan’s mental health claims.
The backlash has been vicious, to say the least…
Sky News reported that a survey conducted amongst 1,664 British respondents found that forty-eight percent had a more negative view of Prince Harry following the interview, while only thirty-one percent had a positive opinion on Meghan.
And now her dad wants to give his side of the story…
Thomas Markle asked to “give his side of the story” in a letter which was hand-delivered to Oprah’s home.
And people have had mixed reactions to his latest actions…
It comes after he appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain after their explosive chat with Oprah.
On the show, he revealed how he is desperate to reconcile with Meghan.
He also admitted they had fallen out back in 2018 after he spoke to the press before their wedding.
A source told The Sun: “Thomas delivered a letter to Oprah asking her to contact him so he could tell his side of the story.”
“This was not a note to Meghan and Harry, it was meant for Oprah. Thomas watched the interview she did with them and feels he deserves a chance to have his say.”
During her interview with Oprah, Meghan labelled her dad talking to the press as a “betrayal.”
But despite his daughter’s claims, Thomas Markle defended the royals…
He said: “I have great respect for the Royals, and I don’t think the British royal family is racist at all. I don’t think the British are racist, I think Los Angeles is racist, California is a racist, but I don’t think the Brits are.”
”The thing about what color will the baby be or how dark will the baby be, I’m guessing and hoping it’s just a dumb question from somebody, you know, it could just be that simple.”
After Meghan and Harry’s interview, the royal family issued a statement…
They said: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.”
