Meghan Markle’s sister Samantha claims father Thomas DID MEET Prince Harry
Meghan Markle’s sister Samantha Markle claims her father Thomas Markle did meet Prince Harry before the Royal Wedding.
She made the bombshell claims while speaking Ray D’Arcy on Saturday night’s Ray D’Arcy Show.
D’Arcy asked the 53-year-old directly if Thomas met Prince Harry.
She said: “Yes he did and I am not at liberty to discuss the details of that but they did respectfully for both of them.
“And it was quite positive. Prince Harry was quite gentlemanly.
“They did the right thing – when you’re going to marry someone’s daughter you want to ask appropriately and be respectful and they both were, contrary to any media speculation.”
When quizzed more about when the pair are said to have met, the host asked if they met because Prince Harry asked Thomas for his daughter’s hand in marriage.
Samantha replied: “Yes, very appropriate, very warm and the public didn’t know anything about that.”
This is the latest bizarre claim to come from the Duchess of Sussex’s half-sister as Thomas himself had said he didn’t meet Prince Harry before the wedding.
During an interview on Good Morning Britain a month after the wedding he explained that he had not met the Duke of Sussex yet.
The 73-year-old said: “It’s been over the phone, always over the phone. We have yet to see each other face to face.
“We’ve had interesting conversations on the phone. He’s a smart guy.”
In the same interview Thomas said: “‘Harry asked for her hand over the phone and I said, ‘You’re a gentleman, promise me you’ll never raise your hand against my daughter and of course I will grant you my permission.’
“Of course it’s ‘Wow,’ it comes out as a ‘Wow,’ but this is my daughter and she’s certainly a prize for him as well.
“He’s great, an interesting guy, a prince, but my daughter’s been a princess since the day she was born.”
Samantha also declared her father Thomas was never invited to the Royal Wedding.
She claims her father was asked the “lay low” in the weeks leading up to the wedding.
She said: “I think he was just asked to lay low and it was sort of assumed that if your health permits that you’d go but there was no formal invite and I think that’s what confused the public.”
Thomas had been expected to attend the wedding, but in the final hours he said he couldn’t go because because he had a heart attack and had to stay in the hospital.
