Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, isn't happy that Donald Trump is planning to meet Britain's Queen Elizabeth II before him. He suggests that the royal family has him in the "penalty box" due to his surprise TV interview with "Good Morning Britain" last week.

"If the Queen is willing to meet our arrogant and insensitive president she has no excuse not to meet me," Thomas said, referring to Trump's scheduled visit to visit to United Kingdom next month.

"I'm nowhere near as bad," he added.

Markle touched on his daughter's husband Prince Harry on "Good Morning Britain," suggesting that Harry urged him to give Trump "a chance."

"Our conversation was I was complaining about not liking Donald Trump," said Markle. "He said, 'Give Donald Trump a chance.' I sort of disagreed with that but I still like Harry. That was his politics, I had my politics."

Paul Burrell, who has served the royal family for years as a butler, slammed the royal family for not training Thomas Markle to properly deal with the press.

"It's another bombshell blindsiding the palace," the 60-year-old said. "It's extraordinary that Meghan and Harry didn't know this was going to take place. Why didn't her father tell her? Who's giving him PR advice? You just chucked a big rock into the royal pool, and there'll be ripples, and the ripples are coming.
