Piers Morgan has penned an article for the Daily Mail blasting Meghan Markle for “disowning” her father since she married Prince Harry in May.
In the article, the controversial journalist slammed the Duchess of Sussex for what he perceives to be poor treatment of her father, Thomas Markle, who underwent heart surgery the week of his daughter’s wedding.
“I think it’s absolutely extraordinary Meghan hasn’t been to see him since his surgery seven weeks ago, particularly as he is now having fresh health issues,” Morgan wrote in the article.
He continued: “I think it’s ridiculous she’s never introduced him to Harry. And I think it’s bizarre that Thomas has had ZERO contact with Prince Charles, the man who walked his daughter down the aisle.”
Thomas recently appeared on “Good Morning Britain” – a show Morgan co-presents – and explained how he hasn’t had any contact with his newly married daughter other than a brief phone call the day after the wedding.
“She didn’t even send him a Father’s Day card or message, which particularly hurt him because she’s always done so in the past,” Morgan added.
He referenced an Instagram photo Meghan posted in 2016, wishing Thomas a happy father’s day.
“Thanks for my work ethic, my love of Busby Berkeley films & club sandwiches, for teaching me the importance of handwritten thank you notes, and for giving me that signature Markle nose. I love you,” the post is reported to have read.
“This was a woman who clearly loved her father. Now she can’t bring herself to even talk to the man, let alone get on a plane to see how he is after his heart surgery,” the former “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant wrote.
Morgan acknowledged Thomas’ mistakes, most notably his decision to collude with paparazzi over photographs, but stated that he has admitted to his errors.
“Meghan is showing every sign of now doing to her own father what she has done to her ex husband, and countless friends and family members – sending them to the ice cold relationship equivalent of Siberia.”
He concluded: “Meghan, I urge you to do the right thing and prove you really ARE a humanitarian by helping your dad in his hour of need – before it’s too late.”
