Meghan Markle’s father has warned about airing further “dirty laundry” about his daughter and her relationship with Prince Harry. Thomas Markle has given an exclusive interview with 60 Minutes Australia, in which he reveals that he has not spoken to his estranged daughter in three years and was not told of Lilibet’s birth. The bombshell interview is due to be broadcast on Sunday, June 13.
The 40-second trailer shows Thomas Markle asking to be forgiven for his “one dumb mistake”.
He said: “I haven’t spoken to her [Meghan] since two days before they got married.”
When asked about the arrival of the couple’s baby daughter Lilibet Diana, Thomas Markle claimed he had not been informed of his granddaughter’s birth: “No phone calls, I just heard it on the radio.
“I’ll be very disappointed that I don’t get to hold my granddaughter.”
The trailer also showed him warning: “You want dirty laundry? This is the first time I’ve discussed these things.”
The world exclusive is due to be aired on Sunday evening.
Meghan Markle has had a strained relationship with her father since it was revealed that Thomas Markle had staged photographs with the paparazzi in the lead-up to her wedding in May 2018.
The posed images showed the 76-year-old supposedly getting ready for the royal wedding. This included a tuxedo fitting and an image of Thomas Markle researching ‘Images of Great Britain: A Pictorial Tour Through History’ in an internet cafe.
He later admitted he regretted the images and said they looked “hammy” and “stupid”.
In the days leading up to the wedding in May 2018, he decided against attending the ceremony to save embarrassing his daughter and her new royal relatives. It was later announced that he was having urgent heart surgery in the hospital.
Prince Charles walked Meghan Markle down the aisle whilst her mother, Doria Ragland, watched on.
Since then, Thomas Markle has conducted several interviews in which he has attacked the Royal Family and criticised the behaviour of his daughter.

She said that she couldn’t reconcile her father’s actions because she “genuinely can’t imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain” to her son, Archie.
Mr Markle is yet to meet either of his grandchildren. He currently resides in Rosarito, Mexico whilst the royal couple have settled in California.
Meghan Markle safely delivered their baby daughter, Lilibet Diana, at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital last Friday.
