Meghan Markle’s estranged dad on Monday challenged Prince Harry to “man up” and finally meet him — saying he would be “happy to duel” with his “candy ass” and “whipped” royal son-in-law.
“Man up and fly down and see me,” Thomas Markle, 75, told “Good Morning Britain” during one of a series of extraordinary interviews he hopes will reach the royal couple after their “embarrassing” Megxit.
“I’d be happy to duel with Harry anytime,” Markle also told The Sun newspaper from his home in Mexico.
“One round in the chamber. Cocked. Ten steps, turn and fire. That’d settle the score.
“The way he’s been acting, I think he’d crouch on the ground before he gets to 10 steps. He’s a candy ass. He’s whipped,” Markle said of the royal son-in-law he has never met.
Despite his incredible challenge, Markle insists his explosive interviews are his “only shot” at getting through to his daughter, who has not spoken to him since he was a no-show at her May 2018 royal wedding.
“I’m at their mercy,” he told the morning TV show.
However, he bragged about being the key witness against his daughter in an upcoming court case — noting that it could prove to be the only way he could get in the same room as his estranged daughter and her husband.
“If it comes to meeting them in a courtroom, that’s great. At least I’d finally get to see them!” Markle told the UK TV show.
He insisted that he didn’t want a “face-off or a battle” — while bragging to The Sun that “everything will come out” about his daughter when he is a witness in her case against a British newspaper.
Still, he insisted, “If I saw her, I would say: ‘I’m sorry, I wish we could have sat down and worked this out.’
“I don’t like the idea of sides, of being in a battle with my daughter. I don’t like not being able to talk to her.”
Markle insisted he has written to the royals, as well as his ex-wife, Meghan’s mom Doria Ragland, in doomed attempts to contact his daughter.
Even while hoping his interviews would reach his daughter, he still kept turning the screw, saying that her decision to quit the royal family was “embarrassing.”
“I think they’ve hurt the Queen, I think they’ve hurt the royals,” he told “Good Morning Britain.” “I’m a little embarrassed for them and I’m feeling very sorry for the Queen.”
