A fa­ther’s an­guish: ‘Mur­der­ers are not pun­ished like I’ve been’

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS -

THOMAS MARKLE ad­mits to ‘stupid mis­takes’, in­clud­ing pos­ing for pa­parazzi pic­tures be­fore the royal wed­ding, but says that be­ing frozen out by Meghan and Harry ‘is a pun­ish­ment which does not fit the crime’. He has apol­o­gised re­peat­edly for the pic­tures, which in­cluded one of him be­ing mea­sured for a wed­ding suit.

‘I was a fool. I was con­vinced to do these pic­tures to change my im­age. I was sick of see­ing schlubby pic­tures of me buy­ing beer which wasn’t even for me,’ he says.

‘I apol­o­gised to Harry on the phone and all he said was, “If you’d lis­tened to me, none of this would have hap­pened.” I did a few things wrong, said a few things I should not have said. But some of the roy­als have done far worse things… There are con­victs in pris­ons who have mur­dered and committed all kinds of hor­ri­ble crimes, and their daugh­ters still visit them.’
