Meghan’s Dad: Prince Harry Told Me to Give Trump a Chance

Thomas Markle, the father of the British royal family’s newest member, said Prince Harry told him to have a more open mind about U.S. President Donald Trump. In an extraordinary interview on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Markle recalled a conversation with Harry. “I was complaining I didn’t like Donald Trump,” Meghan’s dad said. “He said ‘Give Donald Trump a chance.’ I sort of disagreed with that, but I still like Harry.” He said Harry also said he was “open” to the experiment of Brexit. Markle’s media blunders threatened to overshadow the royal wedding in May and Kensington Palace, which speaks for Harry and his brother William, refused to comment on his latest interview. Elsewhere in the interview, Markle said that his daughter cried when he told her he wouldn’t be attending the wedding due to his ill health.
