As you know, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are now parents of two after the former Duchess welcomed baby girl Lilibet Diana! While the whole world has already seemingly congratulated the happy couple on the new addition to the family on social media, Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle finally talked about his new granddaughter publicly as well!
Here’s what he had to say!
At this point in time, Meghan and her dad have a broken relationship but as far as Thomas is concerned, he still holds onto the hope that they will one day reconcile!
He also hopes to meet little Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana very soon.
During a brand new interview, Thomas Markle apologized to his daughter and her husband, Prince Harry once again following their fallout.
But that was not all! The 76-year-old man also used this opportunity to start more drama, this time directed at Oprah Winfrey!
According to him, the famous TV personality who interviewed Meghan and Harry not too long ago exploited them for her own gain!
While chatting with the host of the Australian TV show 60 Minutes, Thomas revealed the way that he learned about the birth of his granddaughter, making it very clear that it wasn’t Meghan who shared the big news.
‘No phone calls. I just heard it on the radio,’ Thomas revealed.
He also commented on the baby’s moniker, mentioning that ‘Lili is a perfect name, and the other thing that makes me so very happy is that now there is a lot more Markle blood in the royal family. All that I can say is I hope I eventually get to, sometime see these grandchildren of mine because I am a pretty good grandpa.’
As for his comments on the bombshell Oprah interview, Thomas stated that ‘The only person benefitting from this is Oprah Winfrey.’
When asked to clarify whether or not he thought Oprah exploited his daughter and son in law, Thomas did not hesitate to respond that: ‘Yes, I do…that is just my opinion. It seems to me she is pushing it to get more and more out of it.’
