Meghan Markle’s father Thomas has slammed her in a new YouTube video.
Thomas said most people would hate Meghan and Prince Harry if it weren’t for their PR team.
“Now only 90% of the population hates them,” he said.
The Duchess of Sussex’s estranged father, Thomas Markle, says the whole population would hate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle if it weren’t for their PR team.
Thomas made the comments during the third episode of his YouTube channel with famed photographer Karl Larsen, titled Remarkable Friendship.
In the episode released on Saturday, Thomas and Larsen are seated at a table with a photo of Queen Elizabeth II positioned between them. They discuss the week’s entertainment news, including Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars.
They also blame Prince Harry for not returning to the UK for Prince Philip’s memorial service, which was held at Westminster Abbey in London on March 29, nearly a year after his death. The memorial service was attended by the British Royal Family and other public figures who were unable to attend the funeral due to the UK’s COVID-19 restrictions at the time.
Harry returned to the UK for the funeral service last year. His reason for not returning for the memorial service has not been confirmed. In September, the royal appealed for a judicial review of a government decision that barred him from personally paying for police protection while in the UK, Insider reported in January. He gave up his right to state-funded royal protection when he retired from royal life.
“He should be ashamed of himself and ashamed of ever going back to England,” Thomas said in the video. “But, I’m prejudiced against him, then.”
“I don’t know, I think other people feel the same way,” Larsen replied.
“Well, if they didn’t have this multi-million dollar PR team, everyone would hate them. Now only 90% of the population hates them,” Thomas said.
The Sussexes used the Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace communications teams until their resignation from royal duties in April 2020, after which they employed a private media team through their Archewell organization.
The Duchess previously said she felt ‘unprotected’ by the Palace press team as they did not correct false stories in the press about the couple, instead using the traditional ‘no comment’ approach. .
