“The palace was given no heads up on Thomas’ interview,” the source said.

“Meghan’s father has now made it impossible to ever again be invited to any royal events.

“Thomas can’t be trusted to not sell stories to the media and he will get absolutely no access,” the source said.

According to the insider who understands royal protocol, the Queen “would have been woken up the morning of and briefed about Thomas’ interview.

“The Queen is an understanding woman and probably wouldn’t but would feel terrible for Meghan. It’s a sad state of affairs.”

Thomas, 73, told interviewer, famed Brit journalist Morgan how he felt when Meghan, 36, told him she was dating Harry, 33.

“Well of course it’s ‘wow’, it comes out as a ‘wow’ but you know this is my daughter. My daughter’s certainly, certainly a prize for him as well,” said Thomas.

“Yeah he’s great, he’s an interesting guy, he’s a prince, but my daughter’s been a princess since the day she was born,” he sweetly added.

Thomas didn’t walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding to Harry after he was caught in a staged photo scandal and then said he had to undergo emergency heart surgery.

Prince Charles stepped in to be Meghan’s aisle escort at the big wedding instead.

The rest of the interview was more problematic for the palace as Meghan’s dad then admitted that he’s yet to meet Harry in person, but the two have shared various stimulating phone conversations over the past year.

“We talked a few times about Donald Trump and Brexit, things like that, and he’s an interesting guy,” Thomas continued.

“I was complaining I didn’t like Donald Trump, he said ‘give Donald Trump a chance.’ I sort of disagreed with that, but I still like Harry. That was his politics, I have my politics.” Thomas also touched on Harry’s views about Brexit, saying the Prince seemed “open to the experiment.”

Thomas also opined on TV about the royals being “very complicated. They royals… they’re very complicated and it’s a whole different lifestyle.”

Meghan’s dad also admitted his staged photo scandal, was a “serious mistake” but he did it because he wanted to change his image!

But clearly, Thomas didn’t understand the royal family wants him muzzled for good!

“It was almost a 30 minute interview – unheard off for members of the family,” the source told Radar.

“The palace keeps reaching out to dad offering help and guidance and Thomas keeps saying no thanks.

“The palace doesn’t know what to do with this man – they can’t have Harry reach out to him anymore because they worry Thomas will tell the press all about it.

“Meghan will be distraught. She is trying so hard and her dad keeps opening his mouth” the insider added.

Thomas Markle Says Meghan Is A ‘Prize’ For Harry, Talks Regrets In First Interview

Thomas Markle Regrets Interview Meghan Harry Wedding

One month after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding, the Duchess’ beloved father, Thomas Markle, is finally speaking out.

In a tell-all interview with Good Morning Britain, the Mexico native opened up about his relationship with Prince Harry, his staged photo scandal, his heart condition and his biggest regrets after missing his daughter’s special day.

To start off the talk, Pierce Morgan asked Thomas, 73, how he felt when Meghan, 36, told him she was dating Harry, 33.

“Well of course it’s ‘wow’, it comes out as a ‘wow’ but you know this is my daughter. My daughter’s certainly, certainly a prize for him as well,” said Thomas.

“Yeah he’s great, he’s an interesting guy, he’ a prince, but my daughter’s been a princess since the day she was born,” he sweetly added.

Meghan’s dad then admitted that he’s yet to meet Harry in person, but the two have had various stimulating phone conversations over the past year.

“It’s always been over the phone,” he explained. “We have yet to see each other face to face. We’ve had interesting conversations on the phone. He’s a smart guy.”

“We talked a few times about Donald Trump and Brexit, things like that, and he’s an interesting guy,” Thomas continued. “I was complaining I didn’t like Donald Trump, he said ‘give Donald Trump a chance.’ I sort of disagreed with that, but I still like Harry. That was his politics, I have my politics.” Thomas also touched on Harry’s views about Brexit, saying the Prince seemed “open to the experiment.”

When asked about his first phone conversation with Harry, Thomas claimed it was all very loose and friendly.

“He said ‘Hello Thomas’ and I said ‘Hi Harry’ and it became a conversation back and forth mostly about politics. He was asking me how I was feeling that day and I was telling him how unhappy I was with the President,” Thomas explained.

“We talked a little bit about how they met and how happy they were with each other, and that was pretty much it for the first conversation.”

The GMB then asked Thomas at what point he knew Meghan would end up marrying the British monarch, and did he believe it was the right choice after her failed first marriage?

“My daughter’s very intelligent. She knows how to choose who she wants to be with. She’s a smart girl, and she made a good pick, didn’t she?” joked Thomas.

He then confirmed that Harry did in fact ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage during one of their phone conversations.

“Meghan told me first, then a few times after that Harry got on the phone with Meghan, they called me together. Harry asked for her hand over the phone. I said, ‘you’re a gentleman, promise me you’ll never raise your hand against my daughter, and of course I give you my permission.’”

Thomas later explained that he “had no idea how much Meghan’s new royal status would impact him and his entire family, but admitted that he will get used to it.

“Having the press at my door and everywhere I go, yeah that kind of became an invasion a little bit,” he said, adding that although his other family members are “somewhat disturbed,” he feels that the attention is a “compliment.”

“My daughter is now seen all over the world as a Duchess, and I’m very proud of her, and I’ll adjust to this. I’ll get over this,” stated Thomas.

Speaking to Piers Morgan about Meghan’s new royal rules and guidelines, Thomas claimed he didn’t know how much she’s have to change her lifestyle, and neither did the former actress.

“At the time I didn’t realize that. I’m not sure she even realized that. I’m sure it’s very complicated. They royals, they’re very complicated and it’s a whole different lifestyle. But I think she could always rise to that occasion. My daughter’s capable of everything, and she’s certainly be a compliment to the royal family.”

At one point during the interview, Thomas came clean about his staged photo scandal, saying that it was a “serious mistake” but he did it because he wanted to change his image.

Thomas said all the other photos that were being taken of him were “derogatory” so “I thought this was a nice way of improving my look. Obviously all that went to hell. I feel bad about it, I apologized for it, and that’s all I can do. I can’t do much beyond that but that was a mistake.”

“Both Harry and Meghan were very forgiving about it,” Thomas explained, adding that they “absolutely” still wanted them at the wedding and he was “very excited.”

“Meghan said ‘everything is ready for you,’ Harry said ‘I’ve got one of my military friends to take care of you when you’re here.’ It was all set up it was fine.”

Explaining why he didn’t end up going to the royal wedding, Thomas said: “The truth is that I couldn’t get over the fact that that had happened. All that stuff was working on me, I’ve got a bit of a heart condition. This pushed me a little further to the point where I had heart palpitations. I had to drive at two in the morning to Rosarito to a hospital, and they sent me to another little hospital, and then they sent me to a bigger hospital, Rosarito General Hospital and a heart attack.”

He said that the hospital stabilized him and after a day and a half he said he felt better and wanted to check out because he wanted to go to the wedding. “I thought I was better, I thought I felt really good.” He had heart surgery days later.

Before his operation, he told Meghan he would not be able to make it. “Meghan cried,” said Thomas. “They were disappointed but they both said… ‘take care of yourself were really worried about you.’”

A friend of Thomas rented him a room where he stayed to recover for a few days after the surgery. That is where he watched the gorgeous wedding.

When learning Prince Charles would be the one to walk Meghan down the aisle, Thomas “was honored. I can’t think of a better replacement than someone like Prince Charles. He looked very handsome and my daughter looked beautiful with him. I was jealous, I wish I had been there. I wish it had been me, but thank God he was there and thank him for that.”

“She was beautiful. It was incredible watching her. I cried a little bit about it. But she was so beautiful walking down that aisle and so proud and so gorgeous. I was very proud, I couldn’t have seen a better moment in my life. I was very upset that it wasn’t me, but the whole world was watching my daughter. I was very happy about that,” Thomas added.

Despite the fact that he’s doing well and feels incredibly happy for his daughter, Meghan Markle, Thomas still has some deep regrets.

“The unfortunate thing for me now, is that I’m a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history, rather than the dad walking her own the aisle, so that upsets me somewhat,” he told Piers Morgan.

“It was a very emotional moment… I regretted it because I really wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle. I wanted that moment. But I’m thankful for everything the way it went.”

Terror Stalks Prince Harry & Meghan Markle On Canadian Honeymoon

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Canada Honeymoon Security

Terrified the Taliban will crash Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s honeymoon, British officials ordered a squad of submachine gun-toting officers to protect the high-profile lovebirds!

The extraordinary security arrangements come amidst fears the bloodthirsty extremists will use the couple’s wedding joy as an excuse to exact vengeance on Harry for annihilating their troops.

The redheaded royal, known by fellow servicemen as “Captain Wales,” did a four-month stint beginning in September 2012 in Afghanistan’s dangerous Helmand province.

During his time “in-country,” Harry famously piloted a $60 million Apache attack helicopter, and admitted he “blew Taliban extremists to pieces.”

“If there’s people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we’ll take them out of the game, I suppose,” Harry said. “Take a life to save a life … the squadron’s been out here. Everyone’s fired a certain amount.”

But now Harry, 33, and his bride, 36, are paying a price for his battlefield heroics.

Elite special ops officers, armed with military-grade weapons, kept a wary eye on their first honeymoon stop — a secret $1.8 million retreat nestled in the countryside of England’s hilly Cotswold District.

“All the neighbors were excited when we heard rumors they were coming,” a source said.

“Although we see more police around now, they are a wonderful addition to the community,” continued the source. “They’ve been on romantic dates to the local pub and hidden themselves away at a quiet corner table.”

“That said, their security team is usually on a table nearby, which probably kills the romance a bit.”

Their rural getaway was spent in a three-bedroom renovated farmhouse tricked out with state-of-the-art motion sensors and surveillance cameras.

Palace sources told Radar that the couple has since moved on to a secluded spot in Banff, Canada.

Radar is withholding the name of their hotel for security reasons, but it’s located within a postcard-pretty national park chosen to conjure up happy memories of Harry and Meghan’s romantic 2017 safari in Botswana, Africa.

Armed security also followed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Canada, sources revealed.

“The hotel has become a fortress!” complained an on-site insider. “There is a strict no-photo policy and all the surrounding rooms have been booked. It’s super intense!”

Another source gushed over Harry and Meghan’s choice for their Canadian retreat.

“It’s exactly what they wanted — somewhere beautiful, remote and tranquil,” said the source.

Making the trip even more meaningful is Meghan’s connection to Canada, where she filmed the TV series ,Suits.

“Canada is like a second home to Meghan,” noted the insider. “She wants Harry to fall in love with it the way she did.”

The extended honeymoon is expected to take the newlyweds back to Africa for another safari — and just in time for the dry season, when animal viewing is best!

The location is being played close to the vest, although sources speculated that Namibia is the choice.

Still, “you can be sure they won’t be alone,” said Radar’s source. “The trip will be private, although extremely well-guarded!”

Meghan Markle’s Ex-Husband Trevor Engelson Gets Engaged To Girlfriend!

Meghan Markle Ex Husband Trevor Engelson Gets Engaged

Meghan Markle‘s former husband Trevor Engelson is engaged.

The movie producer, who divorced Markle in 2013, reportedly announced his happy news with dietician Tracey Kurland on Friday via social media.

Engelson captioned a photo of the two smiling as Kurland flashed her diamond ring, “Luckiest guy I know! Get ready to party!”

The surprise engagement took place just two weeks after his ex-wife Markle married Prince Harry in a star-studded royal wedding on May 19 in England.

Engelson, 41, a producer, has stayed quiet about his previous relationship with Markle, 36, as the world went wild over her marriage to Harry, 33.

Markle wed Engelson in 2011 in Jamaica. According to The Mirror, the wedding was wild as friends and family flocked to the cruise ship port of Ocho Rios to watch Markle and Engelson exchange vows at the Jamaica Inn, seven years after they started dating. Markle partied with pals for four days before the ceremony.

While Markle and Engelson haven’t spoken publicly about why they split, the star’s former friend, Ninaki Priddy, claimed she fell out with the actress because of her treatment of the producer. According to The Mail, Priddy implied that Markle changed after she became an actress on Suits and it wrecked the star’s marriage to Engelson. “Trevor definitely had the rug pulled out from under him. He was hurt,” Priddy alleged in her interview.

A RadarOnline.com exclusive revealed Markle cited “irreconcilable differences” in her divorce documents from Engelson. By all appearances the breakup was amicable as Markle didn’t even hire an attorney and the case was uncontested. She waived her right to receive spousal support.

Still, “the split with Meghan hit Trevor pretty hard,” a source told Us Weekly.

“He went through a rough time during the breakup and that was only made worse when Meghan got together with Harry,” the source said.

But Engelson, who is producing the FX crime series Snowfall, has bounced back with an engagement Kulrand, whom he was first publicly linked to in November 2017.
