Thomas Markle, Meghan Markle’s estranged father, has launched a series of attacks on Oprah Winfrey. While speaking on Australia’s 60 Minutes, he argued Meghan and Harry were being taken advantage of. He claimed Oprah’s ratings have gone up and she is pushing for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to say more than they would like to.
60 Minutes host Mr Tom Steinfort said: “Do you think Oprah Winfrey is exploiting Harry and Meghan?”
Mr Markle replied: “Yes I do, I don’t know if I’m going to get sued for that.
“That is just my opinion, it just seems to me that she is just pushing to get more and more out of it.
“Apple’s stock is going up, her show is going up.

He replied: “I think it is a set-up.

Mr Markle reiterated his mistrust in Oprah’s intentions in talking to the couple.
“I think Oprah Winfrey is playing Harry and Meghan.
He said: “I think she is using them to build her network and build her new shows.
“I think she is taking advantage of a very weakened man.
