Thomas Markle (76), the father of Duchess Meghan (39), wants – again – to unpack. He begs the talk show host Oprah Winfrey (67) for an interview, according to the British newspaper “The Sun”.
“Thomas has given Oprah a letter asking her to contact him so he can tell his side of the story,” a source told the newspaper. The request follows the disclosure interview that Prince Harry (36) and Duchess Meghan gave the talk show host.
Father stabbed Meghan in the back after the interview
The couple revealed explosive details, including accusing the British royal family of racism. One day after Meghan’s interview, her father talked about the revelations on British TV. On the ITV show “Good Morning Britain”, however, he also told how desperately he was trying to talk to his daughter and be reconciled with her.
Thomas Markle also admitted that they fell out after she became upset about him for speaking to the press ahead of their 2018 wedding.

“British are not racist”
To what extent another interview should benefit the relationship with his daughter is questionable. Especially against the background that Thomas Markle stabbed Meghan in the back.
After his daughter spoke in tears about racism in Britain, he said on ITV: “I have a lot of respect for the royals and I don’t think the British royal family is racist. I don’t think the British are racist. “
No response from Oprah
So far, it is unclear whether Oprah Winfrey is interested in an interview with Meghan’s father. Doubts are justified, especially because Thomas Markle speaks constantly to the press and explains “his side of the story”. (euc)
