The Duchess's father made the statement during a recent interview with The Mail on Sunday.
Back in May ̵
He also claimed that Harry had warned him about paparazzi in the past.
"Harry told me that I should never go to the press that it would end in tears He said: 'They will eat you alive,'" Thomas said, "He was right."
After news of the photos became public, Thomas claimed that he had received another phone call from Harry, who said the call had taken place when he recovered from a heart attack.
According to Thomas, Harry told him that this was " never would have happened ", if his father-in-law had listened to him, Thomas claimed he had told the king," Maybe it would be better for you if I were dead … then you could pretend that you were sad. "
He is said to have hung up Harry.
Thomas made similar comments before: In an earlier interview with The Mail on Sunday Thomas told the newspaper that he was wondering if it was for Meghan " It would be easier if I died. " "Everyone would be filled with sympathy for them," he told the publication. "But I hope we reconcile, I would hate to die without talking to Meghan again."
However, he described his phone calls with Meghan and Harry quite differently before. During an interview with Good Morning Britain Thomas said he had apologized for the photos and that the couple was "very lenient". He also said it was not "that difficult" in a conversation.
Despite the drama, Thomas said that Harry was "absolutely right" to respond to the paparazzi photos.
Nevertheless, Thomas did not always talk very much about his son-in-law. In an earlier interview with The Mail on Sunday Thomas said he did not care if Harry ever spoke to him again. He has not met his daughter's husband yet.
He also did not speak much of the royal family. In fact, he accused Meghan and the royal family of interrupting communication with him.
Nevertheless, he claimed that he wished the couple good.
"I love Harry, I love my daughter, I wish love and best wishes for the future," he told the newspaper. I'm not sitting here crying, I'm not sitting here, I'm feeling sorry for myself, I do not save the royal family, I do not care about the royal family, my daughter is a duchess, I do not know what that really means.
