Meghan Markle is 'devastated' over her dad's latest interview
"She was once again blindsided by a father who supposedly cares about her."
Meghan Markle is said to be 'devastated' over her father's latest interview.
Thomas Markle gave his first TV interview since the royal wedding earlier this week.
He revealed to Good Morning Britain that Prince Harry had gotten in touch with him before he asked Meghan to marry him and also spoke about the prince's political beliefs.
A source close to the royal had said that Meghan "doesn't understand" why her dad has shared more details of her life with the public again.
"She is trying so hard to fit in and adapt to this very new way of life and she was once again blindsided by a father who supposedly cares about her and doesn’t want to embarrass her," the source told Yahoo News.
“Given the media circus surrounding her father’s actions before the wedding, Meghan had hoped he would have learned his lesson. She is devastated over this."
"Harry did his best to prepare Meghan for what to expect from the media as a member of the royal family, but it’s impossible.
"Her experience as an actress on a popular nighttime soap pales in comparison. The knives are out and, sadly, most of them appear to be coming from her own family.”
Thomas, who reportedly earned "a few thousand pounds" for his interview, staged paparazzi photos in the weeks before the royal wedding.
He had been due to give Meghan away on her big day but dropped out just days before to undergo heart surgery, with Prince Charles stepping in to do the duty.
"I was honoured, I can't think of a better replacement than someone like Prince Charles," Thomas told Good Morning Britain.
"I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle."
Thomas also revealed that he'd had number of phone conversations with his daughter's husband.
"It's been over the phone, we've had some interesting conversations on the phone. He's a smart guy. He's an interesting guy.
"I was complaining I didn't like Donald Trump. He said give Donald Trump a chance, I sort of disagreed with that."
He added; "I think he was open to the experiment (of Brexit)."
