Meghan Markle’s estranged father says she ‘deceived’ people by claiming she had not giving authorisation to a senior aide to brief the authors of her biography.
Thomas Markle slammed his daughter following revelations from her then press secretary Jason Knauf that she was aware about the book Finding Freedom.
The Duchess of Sussex said she had not “remembered” emails between her and Mr Knauf despite a spokesperson for the Sussexes insisting they “did not collaborate with the authors on the book, nor were they interviewed for it”
In a damning interview on GB News on Thursday evening, he claimed: “I cant speak to much about this but I think she was trying to deceive.
“I think she was telling lies.
“Finally the truth is coming out and thank god for Jason Knauf.
“I would like him to come over so I can take him out for a steak.”
Meghan has apologised in a new witness statement, where she accepted that Mr Knauf did brief the authors of Finding Freedom with Meghan’s knowledge.
She said: “I apologise to the Court for the fact that I had not remembered these exchanges at the time.
“I had absolutely no wish or intention to mislead the Defendant or the Court.”
The Duchess added that had she known about the emails she would have been “more than happy to refer to them” as “strongly” supportive of her case.
In the interview Thomas claimed Meghan had demanded he stopped talking to his two older children and that she had ghosted her family from both sides after marrying Prince Harry.
