Apparently, his daughter Meghan and son-in-law Prince Harry had no idea that Thomas Markle would give an interview on TV yesterday! As you may be aware, during the Good Morning Britain satellite talk, the man opened up about topics such as his paparazzi photos staging, Meghan and Harry’s romance as well as even when the pair may decide to have a baby.
Now, one insider has told ET that Thomas’ TV appearance was a surprise for Meghan and Harry as much as it was for the rest of the world.
‘It came as a surprise. They were not given advanced warning. They understand he has been harassed by the paparazzi 24/7, but it is hard for them to accept his apology when he is again taking cash. Meghan loves her father deeply and Harry and Meghan have tried to offer him support and guidance adjusting to the media attention. But the relationship is fractured and it will be interesting to see where they go from here,’ the source told ET.
Piers Morgan, one of the two co-hosts confirmed that the man received payment for his British TV appearance.
However, she mentioned that he was way more interested in just telling his side of the story.
‘Well, it was a small amount of money, a few thousand pounds. He was offered a lot more money by other media organizations. He could have made way more money doing what he wanted to do. It was not about money for him, you can tell that. The real motivation was to set the record straight, having his say,’ Morgan stressed.
During the interview, Thomas Markle also admitted he regrets missing the wedding.
‘The unfortunate thing for me now is that I am a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history rather than the father walking her down the aisle. That really upsets me somewhat.’
