London: (HRNW) Thomas Markle, the father of Meghan, Britain’s Duchess of Sussex, said on Monday that he was prepared to face his daughter in court and that she and her husband Prince Harry had hurt Queen Elizabeth by abruptly stepping back from royal duties.
Harry, the British monarch’s grandson, and Meghan agreed with the queen earlier this month that they would no longer work as royals after they unexpectedly announced they wanted to carve out “a progressive new role” which they hoped to finance themselves.
They are currently with their baby son Archie in Canada and are now planning to spend the majority of their time in North America.
“I think they’ve hurt the queen, I think they’ve hurt the royals, and it just doesn’t work,” Markle told ITV’s Good Morning Britain programme. “I’m a little embarrassed for them and feeling really sorry for the queen.”
