Channel 5 in the UK will air a new documentary about Meghan Markle's estranged father Thomas in which he repeats his charge that his daughter and her husband Harry are turning the British royal family into "Walmart with a crown".

The 90-minute documentary will be broadcast on Thursday night and sees Mr Markle discuss Meghan and Harry's disengagement from royal family duties.

He says: "it was disappointing as she got ever girl's dream, it looks like she is tossing it away for money."

He adds: "When they got married they took on an obligation."


An emotional  Mr Markle also says of Meghan and Harry, "both of them are turning into lost souls now, I don't know what they are looking for."

He adds: "Its kind of embarrassing to me."

The documentary will air tonight on Channel 5 at 9.00pm.
