Prince Harry has opened up about his regret over his wife Meghan losing contact with her dad, Thomas Markle.

Prince Harry said in the documentary, which aired on December 8, "If Meg wasn't with me then her dad would still be her dad." 

In episode three of the couple's explosive Netflix docuseries, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reflected on events leading up to their wedding, which resulted in a rift with her father.

Meghan spoke about how Thomas, a former lighting director, found himself at the centre of controversy when it emerged he had staged paparazzi photos and sold them for a reported $100,000 in the week of the wedding.

Soon after, he suffered a heart attack and said he could no longer attend his daughter's wedding with just days to go. Meghan claimed in the series that she tried several times to call her dad, but received no answer. She said, "I'm finding out you're not coming to our wedding through a tabloid."

Meghan added that she was "calling calling calling calling and the world is watching this drama play out".

Harry then said, "Of course, it's incredibly sad what happened. She had a father before this and now she doesn't have a father. And I shouldered that, because if Meg wasn't with me then her dad would still be her dad."

Volume two of the couple's docuseries is due to be released next week on December 15 with three more episodes offering exclusive insight from the pair. It will no doubt pick up from the point of Meghan and Tom's relationship breakdown, giving viewers a closer look at the wedding day from their perspective.

Volume two will also likely explore more closely their decision to quit life as working royals in 2020, and the fallout from their move Stateside. Based on the first look they teased last week, which included some photographs of a pregnant Meghan, viewers will also get to see more of Meghan’s pregnancy with Archie and Lilibet.

The first three episodes have only lightly touched on Harry’s relationship with The Royal Family, so there could be a deeper look at the tensions between Harry, his father King Charles and brother Prince William in part two.

Based on the trailer, which saw a crying Meghan and an exasperated Harry, the second volume could be more emotionally charged and feature bigger bombshells as to the current dynamics with their family.

However, what won’t be discussed is the death of Queen Elizabeth II. The docuseries states at the very beginning that all interviews for the six episodes concluded by August 2022, with Queen Elizabeth II dying on September 8, 2022.
