Thomas Markle, the father of Meghan Markle, told GB News yesterday that Prince Harry is an “idiot.”  He also thinks it’s “ridiculous” that Harry might not come to Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. (See the full video at the end of this article.)

Thomas Markle thinks he might be the only one in his family to attend the Queen's Jubilee, and calls Prince Harry an idiot that's whipped by his daughter. https://t.co/jrGc9p3t9k

Markle said that Harry’s reasoning for avoiding the event – Harry said he’s worried about security – is absurd because “[Harry] knows how much security they’re going to have” and “he’s going to the Games.”
Markle made the statements in an interview in which he announced that he will be attending the Jubilee, where he hopes to meet Prince Charles. Markle says Charles and he have a lot in common, as they’ve both been “ghosted” by their children.
Much Ado About Nothing?
Many GB News viewers were critical of the interview, which the network said would “rock the royals.”  Presenter Dan Wootton, who conducted the interview, called it a “bombshell interview” in a tweet.
My bombshell interview with Thomas Markle – where he blasted Prince Harry as an “idiot” and said he didn’t believe his daughter Meghan’s suicide claims – on @GBNEWS  currently leading @MailOnline .
I can’t wait to welcome Thomas to the UK next month. https://t.co/1dk30BXga2  pic.twitter.com/opbEh4oTi3

But it seems that many in the audience don’t find Markle’s continued disdain for his daughter and her husband to be bombshell-worthy coverage.
GB News has been slammed for teasing a world exclusive set to ‘rock the royals’ only for it to be Thomas Markle announcing he’s making a trip to the UK.https://t.co/LaAXNgytju

Markle Hasn’t Had A Close Relationship With His Daughter For Some Time
Markle has been critical of his daughter, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry for years. Their relationship has deteriorated to the point where Markle says he does not believe he’ll ever be allowed to meet his grandchildren.
But not everyone is sympathetic to his plight. Some see the situation as one he’s created himself by constantly criticizing his daughter.
Thomas talks crap about his daughter everyday and then ends the interview with I hope we’re able to make peace so I can see my grandkids Lmfaoooo Spoiler alert: they won’t even attend your funeral when you die pic.twitter.com/4WpqFzTptU

Dear @Sunriseon7 
What a mob of hypocrites – you constantly deride Meghan Markle saying they should stay out of the headlines & here you are "exploiting" her with this trashy headline grab, with a doddering old man.

Let's face it, Thomas Markle will never ever win a 'father of the year' award will he?
Why does he think members of the Royal Family would want to meet him?
What did gracious Doria Ragland ever see in him?
The mystery continues…https://t.co/hnWRk2PNzq
