- Meghan Markle’s dad said she realized she wanted to be famous after joining him at the Emmys
- Thomas Markle Sr. felt that Prince Harry doesn’t have a lot of things to share in his memoir
- Markle’s father wants to meet his grandchildren and plans to take the matter to the court
Meghan Markle’s dad got candid about his take on Prince Harry’s memoir and his plans to see his grandchildren.
A photographer caught up with Thomas Markle Sr. in his home in Rosarito, Mexico Wednesday. During their conversation, Markle’s dad seemingly questioned her husband’s plan to release a memoir, saying that Prince Harry probably has nothing new to tell in his book after his bombshell interview and documentary.
“Harry doesn’t have too much more to tell,” the 77-year-old former lighting director said in an interview exclusively obtained by Fox News. “After three sessions with the psychiatrists and Oprah Winfrey, I don’t know what more is there to tell.”
He also tapped his shoulders just like what Prince Harry did during an EMDR therapy session that was shown in his Apple TV+ mental health docuseries “The Me You Can’t See.” The outlet noted that the treatment is used to address anxiety and PTSD.
The duchess’ dad also shared the exact time Markle told him she wanted to be famous. The father and daughter were very close during her younger years that he took her as his date to the Emmys.
“I believe this is the day around the time she was 12 when I was nominated once again for a nation Emmy Award and I asked Meghan to be my date,” he said.
“Once she was on the red carpet with me and the flashes were popping and the lights blaring and the red carpet blinded you all over… Meghan turned to me and said ‘Daddy, I want to be famous just like you one day.’ I turned to her and said, ‘You are famous to me already and in life family is all that really matters.”
Thomas added that he wants to see Archie and baby Lili, and he is planning to take the matter to court.
“We shouldn’t be punishing [Lili] for Meghan and Harry’s bad behavior,” Thomas added. “Archie and Lili are small children. They’re not politics. They’re not pawns. They’re not part of the game. And they’re also royal and entitled to the same rights as any other royal.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s rep did not comment when Fox News reached out for comment.
Markle is not on speaking terms with her dad after he canceled his attendance to her and Prince Harry’s royal wedding. The duchess even received flak online when she announced her book “The Bench” that she described as a publication focusing on a father and child’s special bond.
