Thomas Markle takes swipe at Prince Harry and says ‘I never dressed like Hitler’

Thomas Markle has hit back at his daughter Megan Markle’s claim he “betrayed” her by saying “we all make mistakes” – before referencing two of Prince Harry’s most infamous moments.

The 76-year-old appeared on Good Morning Britain this morning to share his thoughts on the bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview with Harry and Meghan, which aired on ITV last night (March 8).

In a previously-unseen clip from the interview, the Duchess of Sussex said he had “betrayed” her by speaking to the media.

Thomas admitted he had let her down but said she had “let me down too” by cutting him off after heart surgery three years ago.

He said: “The bottom line is she didn't lose me, she made a statement saying she lost me, she didn't lose me, I would've always been there for her, I'm there for her now if she wants me.

“We all make mistakes – but I've never played naked pool or dressed like Hitler like Harry did.”

Harry sparked global outrage in 2005 when a photo emerged of him dressing up as Nazi officer for a party.

He was then snapped completely naked after playing a game of strip poker in Las Vegas with friends in 2012.

Elsewhere in Thomas’ interview this morning, he revealed he “hung up” on Harry after being called while he was recovering from a heart attack.

The pensioner called the Duke of Sussex “snotty” for a comment he made.

Meghan bravely opened up about her mental health struggles and how she “wanted to die” when she was in the Royal Family, during the Oprah interview.

She said husband Harry rescued her and comforted her but, when asked about the comments this morning, Thomas said “obviously Harry did not support her that well”.
