In a new interview, Meghan Markle’s estranged father, Thomas Markle, brought up his son-in-law’s deceased mother as he continued to publicly drag the royal family through the mud.

“They [the royal family] have Meghan treating her father in a way that Harry’s mother, Princess Diana would have loathed.” Markle said. “That’s not what Diana stood for. Princess Diana is credited with changing the royal family, but she wasn’t perfect. She was still very much one of them.”

During the nine hour interview with the Daily Mail that took place over three days, Markle said he hasn’t talked to his daughter in ten weeks.

“I tell you, I’ve just about reached my limit with Meghan and the royal family,” Markle revealed. “I’m about to unload on them. They want me to be silent, they want me to just go away. But I won’t be silenced. I refuse to stay quiet.”
