Meghan Markle branded 'cruel' by dad Thomas – as he says she holds the power in relationship with Prince Harry | The Sun

MEGHAN Markle has been branded "cruel" by her dad Thomas who insists his daughter holds the power in her relationship with Prince Harry.

Speaking live from the US on Good Morning Britain today, Thomas Markle made an emotional plea to see his grandkids Archie, 4, and Lillibet, 2.

And the 79-year-old also told hosts Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley about his complicated relationship with his daughter in the exclusive chat.

Thomas said he was desperate to be reunited with his grandchildren and thought it was "cruel" he was being denied this by Meghan.

On his grandchildren he said: "I'm heartbroken. I am very upset. This is a cruel thing to do to a grandparent – to deny the right to see a grandchild. 

"In California I can actually sue to see them but I don't want to do that.

"The other thing is I've done nothing wrong. There's nothing that points to say I'm a bad guy.

"I'm a really loving father and she knows that, and there's no excuse for treating me this way – no excuse to treat grandparents that way."

Thomas said that despite spending countless years with his daughter, he "never saw the kind of woman she turned into".

He added: "She's not the person I knew as my daughter."

And Thomas claims Meg has more power in the relationship than Harry.

When asked whether he thought the Duke was to blame, he said: "I think she has influence on Harry more than he does on her."

Meghan, 41, and her dad's relationship has been strained since she married into the Royal Family in 2018.

But Thomas added that he was sorry for anything he had done wrong and that he would be there for Meghan "forever".

He said: "I am always here for her, I still love her – I'll love her forever.

"That will never change but I want her to reach out to me and let me see my grandkids and let me have a little peace. 

"People go to prison for five years and they're forgiven – I didn't do anything. So forgive me I guess. 

"I would always apologise for anything I've done wrong. I'm sorry if I have."

Thomas also opened up about his own health battles, and explained he was managing his recovery following a major stroke last May.
