Meghan dad ‘hung up on Harry’

The Observer - - WORLD -

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.
