Meghan dad ‘hung up on Harry’
THOMAS MARKLE last night revealed how he dramatically hung up on Prince Harry during a heated telephone call – after he was for staging paparazzi photos.
The Duchess of Sussex’s father said he was “upset” by Harry’s tirade, which came as he recovered in hospital from a heart attack. And though he accepts Harry was “absolutely right” to admonish him, he described the timing of the phone call from the Prince as “rude”.
In his most explosive interview yet, Mr Markle also confessed that he lied to the Prince when Harry asked him if he had co-operated with a paparazzi photographer to pose for shots – one of which showed him apparently being fitted for a wedding suit.
Mr Markle told his soon-tobe son-in-law that he was simply being “measured for a hoodie”. He said he didn’t care’ about the Royals.
Mr Markle, 74, said he told Harry: “Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead… then you could pretend to be sad.” Then I hung up.”
Mr Markle added: “I’m not mad at Harry. I’m not mad at Meghan. I love them. I wish them well. But as for the rest of it, f--- it. I’m done.’ Kensington Palace declined to comment.
