National Enquirer - - FIRST TO KNOW -

MOR­TI­FIED Duchess Meghan faces yet more global dis­grace af­ter her ne’er-do-well dad con­fessed to us­ing drugs, par­ty­ing at girlie clubs and ter­ror­iz­ing his en­e­mies!

Now royal in­sid­ers claim Thomas Markle Sr.’s re­pug­nant an­tics could end his gor­geous daugh­ter’s fairy­tale mar­riage to Prince Harry! In a block­buster world ex­clu­sive, The Na­tional ENQUIRER can re­veal Thomas has blown the lid off his se­cret life of snort­ing co­caine, threat­en­ing vi­o­lence and vis­it­ing X-rated jig­gle joints in Asia!

“Have I ever paid for a sex worker? Uh, there was a Play­boy Club in the top floor of a ho­tel in the Philip­pines, [but] I never paid for sex,” the 74-year-old re­tired TV light­ing di­rec­tor ad­mit­ted.

“I would go up­stairs and en­joy my­self in the Play­boy Club, but not … not for sex. I didn’t get sex out of it.” Thomas — who worked on the prime-time sit­com “Mar­ried … with Chil­dren” and the day­time soaps “Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal” and “Santa Bar­bara” — also con­fessed drugs were ram­pant in the en­ter­tain­ment world.

“In the in­dus­try I worked in back in the ’70s and ’80s there was co­caine around a lot,” he con­ceded.

“And I’m sure that I had an oc­ca­sional sniff of co­caine.” The shock­ing ad­mis­sions are just the lat­est in an avalanche of black marks sul­ly­ing the 37-year-old for­mer “Suits” star’s mar­riage to Harry, 34.

As The ENQUIRER has re­ported, Meghan’s dad now lives in “ex­ile” in Rosar­ito, Mex­ico, af­ter fil­ing for bank­ruptcy in 2016.

Thomas pals around with a cross-dress­ing weirdo named Brett Hal­lett, whose blousewear­ing al­ter ego goes by the same name as the char­ac­ter Markle’s daugh­ter played on TV — Rachel!

In our is­sue dated Aug.

20, we re­vealed Thomas bankrolled Meghan’s dow­nand-out se­cret “sis­ter” — who van­ished af­ter hit­ting him up for $6,000 in cash!

The mul­ti­ple scan­dals have pushed Harry and Meghan to the brink of a quickie di­vorce, ac­cord­ing to a palace insider. “It’s just one thing af­ter an­other,” the insider told

The ENQUIRER. “Where does it end? When does the shoe fi­nally drop? The prince is un­der a lot of pres­sure!” Meghan’s dad was set to give her away when she tied the knot in Eng­land on May

19, but can­celed when he needed to un­dergo emer­gency heart surgery.

At the time, Thomas was al­ready on thin ice with the roy­als af­ter cash­ing in by pos­ing for a phony photo ses­sion, pre­tend­ing to pre­pare for the nup­tials! Now palace sources said Meghan will be for­bid­den from even at­tend­ing her mor­bidly obese fa­ther’s in­evitable fu­neral.

“The plan is to make sure Meghan is sched­uled for an

of­fi­cial visit as an ex­cuse for her nonat­ten­dance,” the source spilled.

As for Thomas, the set­backs are ap­par­ently tak­ing an emo­tional toll. When con­fronted with de­tails about a re­porter who in­ter­viewed him, Thomas flatly de­nied the sit-down ever oc­curred. Then he blew up, rag­ing: “He lied to me! He cheated me! He’s a thief, a liar and a coward!

“If he ever comes down here, I’ll break his f---ing legs! And you can quote me on that!”
