Thomas Markle is back to doing what he does best: Talking to the press!
Meghan’s father, who infamously bowed out of the royal wedding due to his embarrassment over working with the paparazzi, went ahead and pocketed a reported $10,000 to do an interview with ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
Thomas’ controversial conversation spanned everything from him making Harry promise to never “raise his hand” to Meghan, to Harry’s musing that Donald Trump should be given a chance.
WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Thomas Markle says he feels like a ‘footnote in one of the greatest moments in history’ after he was unable to attend his daughter’s wedding to Prince Harry.

The Daily Mail’s Rebecca English reports that Kensington Palace officials were “deliberately kept in the dark about yesterday’s TV interview so there was no opportunity to dissuade Mr Markle from taking part.” Meanwhile Thomas himself confirmed that he didn’t tell Megan or Harry he was doing the sit-down, but said he hoped they’d “understand my feelings as well.”
Thus far, Kensington Palace hasn’t commented on Thomas Markle’s latest blunder, but we won’t be surprised if they, like us, are tired of him talking to the press.
