Meghan Markle’s Estranged Father Speaks Out On Former Royals Interview — Defends Royal Family, Claims Harry Is ‘Snotty’

OPINION | This article contains commentary that reflects the author's opinion.

Meghan Markle’s father Thomas said he doesn’t think the royal family was racist before calling Prince Harry “snotty.”

Meghan said when she was first pregnant with son Archie, there were “concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”

“I have great respect for the Royals, and 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 a racist, but I don’t think the Brits are,” Thomas Markle said.

“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, you know, it could just be that simple. It could be somebody asked a stupid question. Rather than being a total racist.”

Markle was played clips of the interview, “It really did upset me. It would’ve been easy for her to reach out to me or any of her family. But the other thing is that I would think she could turn to her husband.”

“She made a statement saying she lost me. She didn’t lose me. I’m here for her now if she wants me,” Thomas Markle pleaded.

Allegedly the last time he spoke to Meghan and Harry he was lying in a hospital bed and had to tell them he couldn’t come to the wedding.

“The last time we spoke, we didn’t speak, we actually texted each other,” he said.

“At that point we pretty much said goodbye. Actually it wasn’t quite saying goodbye, Harry had said to me at that point, ‘If you had listened to me, this wouldn’t have happened to you.’”

“We all make mistakes, but I’ve never played naked pool and I’ve never dressed up as Hitler.”
