Meghan Markle's estranged father Thomas Markle launched his own YouTube channel and is planning to release weekly episodes to broadcast his views on current affairs. The episodes will also include issues with Meghan and Prince Harry.

Thomas and close friend Karl Larsen have been reportedly inspired by the direct-talking royal author Lady Colin Campbell and United States podcast host Joe Rogan. Thomas, 77, confirmed, "We have discovered YouTube… we've decided to join and share our story."

The first episode went online on Sunday. The premiere featured Thomas giving his views on his eldest daughter Samantha suing Meghan for defamation in a Florida court. Samantha, 57, is suing her half-sister Meghan, 40, for £57,000 ($75,000), claiming that the Duchess lied about her to the authors of the controversial book "Finding Freedom" and in her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

"I'm standing up for my oldest daughter, Samantha. In this case, she should win because Meghan's book was full of lies about her. I would appear in a deposition in this case, if it came to it," Thomas said in the debut episode of his channel.

Meanwhile, Thomas's co-host Larsen, 53, Los Angeles-based photographer who grew up in Winchester, also talked about their motivation and purpose of starting the podcast, "Tom wants to do it to put his thoughts out there from the horse's mouth. He wants to speak about how Meghan and Harry have affected his family. The chat will be no-holds-barred. He wants his truth to be out there, just like Meghan's truth came out a year ago in her Oprah Winfrey interview. He also wants to speak about other things in the news, too."

During the November trial, Meghan apologized to the Court of Appeal after emails contradicting a claim that she did not collaborate with "Finding Freedom" authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand was disclosed. The messages were revealed by Meghan's ex-communications secretary Jason Knauf, showing she sent information about Samantha and brother Thomas Jr. to pass on for the book. However, Meghan claimed, "I had absolutely no wish or intention to mislead the defendant or the court."
