Meghan Markle’s estranged father rebutted claims that her daughter had “lost” him, saying that she threw him “under the bus” and that she had done the same to the Royal Family. The 78-year-old Thomas Markle, commented on his daughter’s controversial interview with The Cut magazine, in which she was quoted about Prince Harry’s collapsing relationship with his own father. Shortly after Meghan’s remarks were published by The Cut, her personal mouthpiece, Omid Scobie, said that Harry was actually referring to Meghan’s crumbling relationship with her father, saying that she did not want her husband to “lose” his father as she lost hers.

In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Thomas made comments regarding his health, saying that he is still very ill, as he tries to recover from a stroke he suffered back in May. He added that Meghan's recent interviews have caused him even more distress after enduring a blood clot in his brain earlier this year. He reportedly still struggles to speak during his talk with the media outlet in his home in Rosarito, Mexico. He said that Meghan didn’t “lose” him, but rather “dumped him”.

The heartbroken father said that his daughter has all the resources to get in touch with him as his contact information has not changed and he still lives in the same house. He went on to mention how he wished to meet his son-in-law as well as his grandchildren for the first time.

Markle, a former Hollywood director of photography, said that Meghan's public stunts caused him to suffer two heart attacks on the night of his daughter’s wedding, with doctors refusing him to travel by plane. He is being cared for by his 55-year-old son Thomas Markle Jr., who had moved from Oregon to be close to his dad.

He pointed out that he has apologized to his daughter several times for any pain he may have caused her but she has not made any effort to reach out as he recalls watching his daughter and Prince Harry from his hospital bed visiting a memorial for victims of the Uvalde school shooting in Texas last May. In Meghan’s interview last week, she was asked if there was any possibility of reconciliation between her and the Royal Family, as well as her own family. Meghan replied with, “I think forgiveness is really important. It takes a lot more energy to not forgive. But it takes a lot of effort to forgive.”

After this interview, Thomas slammed his daughter’s pretentious remarks citing that if she had truly believed in forgiveness, “then why can’t she forgive me?”
