Thomas Markle says he ‘doesn’t buy’ Meghan Markle’s claims she felt suicidal

Meghan Markle's father Thomas has made more scathing comments about his estranged daughter in a new interview.

Thomas said he "doesn't buy" the Duchess of Sussex felt suicidal and said the Duchess of Sussex, 40, and her husband Prince Harry were "looking for some reason to get out" of the Royal Family.

Meghan broke down in tears in an interview with Oprah Winfrey last year and as she discussed being "denied help" by the firm for her mental health struggles.

The Duchess, who's daughter Lilibet recently took her first steps, tearfully said: "I just didn't see a solution. I didn't want to be alive anymore."

A year on from Meghan's interview, 77 year old Thomas didn't hold back as he shared his views on his daughter as he sat down with Dan Wootton.

When asked by Dan, 39, if he felt Meghan "purposefully" drove Prince Harry, 37, "away for his family", Thomas said: "Yes, I do. I don’t know why but I think she had something to do with him moving out or taking her away.

"Apparently the story was about him taking her away from things that were upsetting her, I don’t buy that story, I never have since it came out."

He continued to slam his daughter's claims she had suicidal thoughts during her time in the Royal Family.

Thomas, who recently branded Prince Harry as Meghan's "ginger husband", said: "The suicide story, I don’t buy that at all.

"I think they were looking for some reason to get out. I don’t know why my daughter, who should have loved the idea of becoming a part of the royals and reaching out and shaking hands with children all day every day, meeting people and greeting people – it’s what an actor does too.

"She would have been so loved had she stayed and done that.

"Instead she takes Harry away. They haul up in a big house with no company. They’re just hauled up in a big house with no company."

Meanwhile, Thomas also revealed he planned on travelling to the UK to meet the Queen and Prince Charles for the monarch's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

"I’m looking forward to it and I’m going to show my respects for the Queen," he said.

Thomas added: "I’m going to make sure the Queen understands that my entire family respects the Queen and the royals and we admire them. We want them to know that’s how we feel about them and that’s how we feel about England."

Meghan's father previously vowed not to stop speaking to the press until his daughter makes contact with him.

He explained on Good Morning Britain last year: "The bottom line is I’ve never heard back from Meghan or Harry in any way shape or form.

"When they say that I’m taking advantage of the press well basically what I do, because I haven’t heard from them is I’ll do a story for the press.

"If I haven’t heard from them in 30 days I’ll do another story for the press. And I haven’t heard from them. I would love to hear from them."
