Meghan's father hung up on Harry in phone row

Celebs Who Broke Royal Protocol

Markle confessed to lying when he told the prince that he did not cooperate with a paparazzi photographer to pose for shots - one of which showed him apparently being fitted for a wedding suit.

According to The Sun, Meghan's three-month estrangement from Thomas Sr. began with a phone call the pair and Prince Harry shared while he was recovering from heart surgery.

Markle also previously caused a stir when he outed Prince Harry as an apparent Trump supporter, claiming that when he and Harry talked politics, the Prince urged him "to give Trump a chance".

He said: "I was going to recount the amusing story about how she broke the news to me about dating Harry, 'Daddy, I've met a man. Daddy, he's English".

The relationship between Meghan and Thomas Markle seemingly becomes more fractured by the day, with the Duchess of Sussex now "refusing" to speak to her father. Even before the wedding she told me how she misses her Megs so much she would do anything to be closer to her, especially now Meghan will be starting a family of her own'.

"That it would end in tears".

To which Mr Markle said he replied: "Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead... then you could pretend to be sad". I love them. I wish them well.

"Like any father I wanted to say a few words", he added.

The Mexico-based retiree says his daughter also ignored his request to send invitations to "all [his] family".

"I was going to thank the Royal Family for welcoming my lovely daughter into their family". At first I thought, "That's OK, because I'm part of the wedding", but I would have loved to have had an invitation to put in a frame.

Mr Markle's remarks come in what he has called the last of a series of damaging interviews given to the press on the back of advice from Harry, the son-in-law he has never met, not to. "Of course that didn't happen", he said.
