Well, this is awkward. Meghan Markle's estranged father had some choice words for his new son-in-law, Prince Harry, and they weren't exactly heartwarming. Thomas Markle opened up to the UK's The Sun about his current relationship status with the Duchess of Sussex, and he took a stab at the 33-year-old royal heir.
"If I had a message for Harry, it's 'Get over it, I'm your new father-in-law,'" Thomas told the outlet. Ouch.
Luckily, his message for his daughter was a bit warmer. "My message [to her] would be, 'I love you, I miss you, I'm sorry for anything that went wrong,'" he said. "And I want to be her [future] child's grandfather and I want to be near them. I want to be a part of their life. I'd like to put our differences behind us and get together. I miss you very much."
In the clip, the 73-year-old dad claimed his efforts to get in touch with Meghan over the past few months have been futile. "Since the interview, the phone number that I call doesn't work anymore," Thomas said. "The, I guess, liaison with the royal family never answers back, and there's no address I can write to so I have no way of contacting my daughter."
He added that he thinks Meghan looks "terrified" in new photos with the royal family. "My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified," he shared. "I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. I've seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don't like the one I'm seeing now. This one isn't even a stage smile — this is a pained smile."
In the final days leading up to the royal wedding, Thomas confessed to working with a photographer and taking staged photographs to boost his image. "This was a presentation for me to change my image because for the past year, photographs of me were always derogatory," he explained in his first on-screen interview last month. "They took all these pictures of me making me look negative, so I thought this would be a nice way of improving my look. Well, obviously that all went to hell."
Hey, Tom — a little piece of advice? Don't tell your son-in-law to "get over it" if you're hoping to have a relationship with him.
