Click! Meghan Markle’s father Thomas is (over)sharing with the press again. The loquacious 74-year-old sat down with The Daily Mail for a conversation that, many say, make him look more unhinged and dishonest than ever.
Following his notorious photo scandal, Thomas says he had an awkward conversation with Prince Harry about it in which he lied and "hung up" on the royal. (ICYMI, Thomas admitted to staging "wholesome" looking paparazzi shots of himself before the wedding; after he got busted, he pulled out of attending the royal wedding days before the ceremony citing heart problems that some contend were also faked).
THE PHONE CALL
Harry had warned him long ago about the press' trickery.
"Harry told me that I should never go to the press. That it would end in tears. He said, 'They will eat you alive,'" Thomas says in the new interview about one of his first conversations with the 33-year-old Duke of Sussex, adding, "He was right."
When Harry asked him if he’d staged the photos, Thomas admitted he'd falsely claimed that he "was being measured for a hoodie."
After the scandal broke, Harry reportedly cited that earlier conversation and said: "If you had listened to me this would never have happened."
Thomas then claims he replied, "Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead… then you could pretend to be sad," and hung up on Harry.
He then added that there’s no bad blood on his side, but that he was done playing the royal game: "I’m not mad at Harry. I’m not mad at Meghan. I love them. I wish them well," he said. "But as for the rest of it, f**k it. I’m done."
