London: The estranged father of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, has sought to defend his reputation in a new documentary but says he fears he will never speak to his daughter or her husband, Britain’s Prince Harry, again.
Thomas Markle, 75, has already accused his daughter of “cheapening” the British royal family in part of an interview released on Sunday, a day after Buckingham Palace said Prince Harry and his wife would no longer be working members of the monarchy.
Harry and Meghan’s decision to cut down on official engagements has sparked turmoil in the royal family, and the couple will now give up royal duties entirely in order to pursue an independent future as a result of Buckingham Palace’s announcement.
Aside from Sunday’s clip, the rest of Thomas Markle: My Story was recorded for Channel 5 in October 2019 over six days at his home in Mexico, before that decision. It’s due to be broadcast on Wednesday.
