Meghan Markle's dad says Prince Harry is 'weak' and Oprah 'took advantage' of him
MEGHAN Markle’s dad has accused Oprah Winfrey of “taking advantage” of “weakened” Prince Harry and “playing” his daughter.
In a bombshell interview, Thomas Markle claimed that Oprah tricked Harry into “saying things you just shouldn’t be saying on television”.
The granddad, 76, is estranged from Meghan and they have not spoken since 2018, when he sensationally pulled out of going to his daughter’s wedding.
Mr Markle told Australian TV show 60 minutes: “I have things to say. Oprah Winfrey, for one, I think is playing Harry and Meghan.
“I think she is using them to build her network and build her new shows and I think she’s taken advantage of a very weakened man and has got him to say things that you just shouldn’t be saying on television.
“She will disagree of course, and she may even sue me, I don’t care. But the bottom line is she is working Harry.”
Mr Markle also said he was “disappointed” to find out about his new baby granddaughter after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex put out a public statement.
He added: “My congratulations Harry and Meghan.
“I found out (Lilbet’s birth) after the face and I have to deal with that and that’s okay. There’s always disappointment here.
“Lili is perfect and the other thing that makes me happy is that there is a lot more Markle blood in the Royal Family.”
He continued: “All I can say is that I hope eventually I get to see these grandchildren of mine. I’m a pretty good grandpa.
“"August 4, 40 years ago, Megan was born by c-section and I was the first one to hold her in my arms. I fell in love with her and I’ve been that way ever since.
“I will be very disappointed if I don’t get to hold my granddaughter."
