PRINCE HARRY’S decision not to attend Prince Philip’s memorial and not to go to the Jubilee has been branded “the cruellest, meanest thing he can do” by Thomas Markle as he accused him of denying the Queen an opportunity to meet Lilibet. Thomas Markle launched a scathing attack on Prince Harry after it was revealed the Royal would not be attending the late Prince Phillip’s memorial service. Thomas also accused the Duke of Sussex of denying the Queen a chance to meet her great-granddaughter Lilibet.
Speaking to GB News, Thomas stated: “I think it’s the cruellest, meanest thing he can do. “I have no respect for this man at all. “To not go and honour his grandfather, then not go to the Jubilee. He added: “To deny the children to the Queen is unforgivable.” Last Thursday, it was confirmed Prince Harry would miss his grandfather The Duke of Edinburgh’s memorial service. A decision which came amid his ongoing legal battle with the Home Office for UK police protection. A choice which Thomas also slammed: “The complaint about security is crazy, there’ll be tons of security around there.
The 77-year-old continued: “He’s just making up excuses, this is crazy.” Prince Harry made a High Court claim about the Home Office’s decision after they refused to pay for police protection for himself and his family while in the UK. Both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex lost access to taxpayer-funded police protection after they quit their roles as senior working royals. The Duke had also argued his private protection team in the USA does not have adequate jurisdiction abroad.
They also weren’t permitted access to UK intelligence information which is needed to keep his family safe. However, Thomas argued: “Then the other thing is he’s going to the Invictus Games. “This has to hurt the Queen and she’s been through so much, she lost her husband and she lost Harry and he won’t come back. “He’s acting like a child, I have no respect for him at all.”
“I make jokes about him to try and get his attention, try to get them to come after me because I never get to speak to them,” he concluded. Last year, Thomas revealed he would be ready to launch legal action against his daughter Meghan Markle to meet his grandchildren, Archie Harrison and Lilibet Diana.
However, he later retracted his claims and stated he didn’t want his grandchildren to be turned in: “some sort of game.” He told the Australian breakfast show Sunrise: “I’ve had offers from several lawyers, pro bono, we do have a right to sue to see our grandchildren but to me, that’s like turning this into some kind of game or using them as pawns and I won’t sue to see them because I just think that’s using them. “It’s not what I plan to do and I don’t want to see Harry and Meghan do the same thing. “They shouldn’t be used, they’re just kids, they’re babies so no, I’ll wait.”
