He then added: “This is since Harry. Harry has influenced it.”

During their Oprah interview, Meghan alleged there were ‘concerns’ and ‘conversations’ within the Royal Family about how dark their son Archie’s skin would be.

Meghan also opened up about feeling suicidal during her pregnancy with son Archie, and claimed she didn’t receive help from the palace.

Thomas said: “Meghan and Harry are attacking the world. Attacking his 95-year-old grandmother is unforgivable.

“It’s embarrassing they are doing this, it’s embarrassing for them to be telling me a few years ago to ‘never talk to the press’.

“But then they spend hours on a show with Oprah.”

In conclusion, Thomas said his daughter has “changed” and was a “much more giving, loving person than she is now”.

He added: “I don’t know if he’s the one behind it, but I really think that Harry and some of her friends have changed her.

“I love my daughter, but I don’t always like what they’re doing.”

Another wrote: “I wish Thomas Markle would just shut up. Any man willing to sell out their daughter is no father in my eyes.”

A third added: “Doesn’t he realise he’s doing all these interviews to try and make constant with his daughter again yet by doing all these interviews and saying what he’s saying he’s just making that impossible.”

However, others hit out at Meghan and felt for Thomas.

One tweeted: “I feel so sorry for Thomas Markle. If Harry and Meghan truly believe in their own rhetoric they should bury the hatchet and build bridges. So sad.”
