Meghan Markle’s estranged father has said that the rift between them means his daughter will never see him again.
Speaking in the Channel 5 documentary that aired on Wednesday night at 9pm, Thomas Markle, 75 who is set to face his daughter in a bitter court battle, told the programme: “The last time they might see me is being lowered into the ground”
“I don’t think at this point they’re thrilled to see me or want to talk to me,” he added.
The 90-minute documentary, where Mr Markle discusses his “complicated” relationship with his daughter, comes as Meghan and Harry arrived in Canada to start their new lives after stepping down from their roles as “senior royals.”
Mr. Markle lashed out at the couple for deciding to give up their home in the UK, describing their decision as “embarrassing”.
“Every young girl wants to become a princess and she got that and now she’s tossing that away… it looks like she’s tossing that away for money…” he said.
“Apparently $3m and a 26-room home isn’t enough for them… it is kind of embarrassing to me.”
Africa Tembelea has also learnt that Harry told guests at a charity dinner this week that the couple had “no choice” but to step back from the Royal Family.
Talking further about Meghan’s relationship with Harry, Mr Markle said he was told not to apologise for missing his daughter’s wedding after he suffered a heart attack.
“I want to apologise to the Queen and to the Royal Family. I want to do that and I was told by them, ‘don’t’, he said.
He said, that he was scheduled to fly to England for Meghan and Harry’s wedding but was told by doctors that he couldn’t fly to the UK to attend the wedding, adding that Meghan “cried and was very upset” when he broke the news.
