Eagle-eyed viewers watching Thomas Markle’s documentary on Meghan murmured that he might be a secret fan of one of his daughter’s greatest critics – after spotting something on his coffee table.
The 90-minute Channel 5 show, called Thomas Markle: My Story, aired last week and made headlines around the world.
Markle, 75, a retired lighting director, invited a film crew to his home in Rosarito, Mexico last year in an attempt to tell her part of his “complicated” relationship with Meghan, 38.
He bared the way he did not speak to his daughter from his marriage to Prince Harry at Windsor Castle in May 2018, nor did he meet his nephew Archie.
And you blink and you may have lost it, but in one scene you can see a book placed on its table that can raise some eyebrows.
The publication is none other than Piers Morgan and is called The Insider: The Private Diaries of a Scandalous Decade.
Describes in detail the time that the guest of Good Morning Britain worked as a newspaper editor at the News of the World and the Daily Mirror.
It also goes into great detail about Piers’ encounters with Harry’s mother, Prince Diana, among other royalty and famous faces.
Piers has been a frank criticism of Meghan since she started dating Harry.
After Meghan and Harry recently announced that they would return as royal royalty, Piers tweeted: “BREAKING: The Queen told Megan / Harry to bring their part-time royal hook. Well done, Your Majesty – right decision.” .
“Only surprised it took her so long to convince Harry to abandon his family, the monarchy, the military and his country. What a job.
“In conclusion: Meghan / Harry wanted to have their cake and eat it, but the queen has just brought the cake back to the royal kitchens.”
Meanwhile, speaking of the documentary, Markle said he took part in being able to speak directly to his daughter after being “snubbed” for the past two years.
He is filmed as he talks about Sussex and what led to their bitter detachment in the run-up to his marriage.
Fearing that he will never see Meghan again or meet his nephew, the retiree said, “The last time they could see me, he is lowered into the ground.
“I don’t think they’re excited to see me or talk to me at this point.”
Markle also talked about Meghan’s disappearance of marriage due to heart complications.
Addressing Meghan directly, she said, “I apologize to you. I want to apologize to the queen and the royal family. I want to do it, and I was told by them, ‘not’.
“And I was scheduled to go to the airport and fly to England because they still wanted me to come to the wedding and be at the wedding.
“And at that time I had a serious heart attack and was then taken to the Sharp hospital across the border.”
Speaking of their decision to withdraw from their royal duties and move to Canada with Archie, he added, “With Meghan and Harry separating from the royals, she is disappointing because she really has every girl’s dream.
“Every girl wanted to become a princess, and she understood it, and now she’s throwing it away, because it looks like I’m throwing it away for money.
“Apparently $ 3 million and a 26-bedroom house is not enough for them.
“When they got married, they took on an obligation, and the obligation is to be part of the royalty and represent the royalty, and it would be foolish for them not to.
“This is one of the largest long-lasting institutions ever, and they are destroying it.
“They’re serving him up and making him shabby. It’s a little embarrassing for me.”
