• Meghan Markle's father Thomas claimed his daughter has been "lying for a year"
  • The 77-year-old insisted that it was Prince Harry's influence
  • Thomas claimed Prince Harry and some of Meghan's friends "changed her in a bad way"

Meghan Markle's father has branded his daughter a "liar" and claimed she "changed" after meeting Prince Harry.

Thomas Markle, 77, made the accusations during an interview with GB News Thursday, where host Dan Wootton brought up Piers Morgan losing his job on "Good Morning Britain" after refusing to apologize for saying he didn't believe what the Duchess of Sussex had said on her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.

When asked whether his daughter was telling the truth during the explosive interview, the former lighting director said, "No, she lied. She's been lying for a year. She's been lying about different things."

"Lying about the archbishop, I mean, how could you lie about the archbishop? How could you say we got married three days before we got married?" Thomas continued, adding, "The lies are so obvious that I don't know why she makes them or why she says them."

Meghan and Prince Harry told Winfrey that they had a private ceremony conducted by the archbishop of Canterbury in the backyard of their home three days before their wedding on May 19, 2018. However, the archbishop told Italian newspaper la Repubblica that May 19 was the couple's legal wedding day, adding, "But I won't say what happened at any other meetings."

Meghan's father went on to claim that the duchess' alleged behavior was "new" and that she didn't have the capacity to lie before meeting her husband.

"This is since Harry. Harry's the influence here," Thomas claimed, putting the blame on his son-in-law. "I don't know if he or she is the one behind it, but I really think Harry and probably the 'Soho friends' have changed her in a bad way, not a good way."

Thomas, who was meant to walk his daughter down the aisle at her 2018 royal wedding, also claimed he hasn't heard from the couple since he canceled his attendance due to severe chest pains and heart surgery.

"Your parent or your child is in the hospital, wouldn't you be concerned even if you are mad at them, wouldn't you be concerned if they're going to live or die? They don't answer or respond in any way shape or form," he added. "She's [Meghan] changed, she's not the daughter I knew. My daughter was a much more giving, loving person than she is now."

The 77-year-old also addressed Meghan's statement about him in her Oprah interview, where the duchess said, "I genuinely can't imagine doing anything to intentionally cause pain to my child. So, it's hard for me to reconcile that." The former actress also said her mom, Doria Ragland, never said a word and has remained in "silent dignity for four years" despite also being "hunted" by tabloids.

"I don't know what terrible things would happen to these children because I did some photos," Thomas said, adding that he doesn't understand what they meant and felt that he was being "picked on."

"Bottom line, I didn't do anything that horrible, I got played," he continued, referencing the paparazzi who allegedly convinced him he needed to stage photos to improve his image ahead of his daughter's royal wedding. "I've been trying to sue them. God knows I will somehow, some way. But I don't think I did anything worthy of this kind of ignorance"

Thomas also said he sent his daughter roses for her 40th birthday on Aug. 4 but never received a response.

He previously said that the flower arrangement included 10 red roses and two yellow ones in the middle to represent her and Prince Harry's two kids, Archie, 2, and baby Lili, 2 months.
