Entertainment 'It's embarrassing': Thomas Markle slams Duchess of Sussex's Ellen DeGeneres Show appearance
Expert says Meghan's court apology 'changes outlook' of her privacy appeal as she appears 'defiant and bold' on the red carpet
Royal experts have weighed in on Meghan Markle's apology to a UK court for forgetting about emails she had exchanged with a palace aide who was going to brief the authors of an unauthorised biography about her and Prince Harry, saying it could "change the outlook" of her privacy case against the Mail on Sunday's and MailOnline's publisher. LBC radio host Nick Ferrari asked expert Camilla Tominey: "Do you think this is possibly, if not a turning point, maybe a slight crack in the façade?" "Well, it certainly does change the outlook of this appeal in the sense that previously when there was the first hearing, there was a sense that Jason Knauf [the
The Duchess of Sussex' father has branded her appearance on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' "embarrassing".
Meghan was interviewed by her friend on an episode of the US daytime programme which aired on Thursday (18.11.21) and she also took part in a sketch where she drank from a baby's bottle, claimed to have healing powers and impersonated a cat while out shopping, and Thomas Markle has insisted his estranged daughter shouldn't have gone on the show because it isn't appropriate for her position in the British royal family.
Thomas told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “It’s no way to behave. The whole thing was kind of embarrassing. It was certainly embarrassing for the Royal Family.
History's most notorious art forgers and fraudsters
There's an art to faking it, as any good fraudster will tell you. And history has recorded several pretty dramatic art scams, where counterfeit paintings have been passed off as the the real thing, and wannabe artists have plagiarized the works of others. In fact, some of these paint jobs are so audacious that they've made films out of them. Click through and uncover some of the most notorious art forgers and fraudsters.
"It’s embarrassing for her as well. I suspect it embarrassed everyone in the UK, too.
“She’s putting herself out there as a duchess but I’ve never seen a duchess behave this way, doing stupid stunts.”
During her interview, Meghan recalled how she used to visit the Warner Bros. lot where the show is filmed for auditions as a struggling actress and made the audience laugh with a tale of how the car she drove at the time didn't even have opening doors - but the retired lighting director has insisted the anecdote wasn't true.
He said: “I’m disappointed she didn’t mention me. I hooked her up with a director on the General Hospital TV show and that got her a couple of lines on one of the shows which got her a union card.

But instead of pulling the trigger on it, let’s torture ourselves about it for seven weeks, disagreeing with names before we come around to the name that we picked,’” the Succession star, 39, told Ellen DeGeneres on the Tuesday, November 16, episode of her talk show. “We didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl, and we had a long list of names … at the hospital.

Today presenter stuns with snarky dig at Meghan Markle's Ellen chat
Today's US correspondent Amelia Adams delivered an update about Meghan's surprise sit-down with Ellen, which will broadcast in America on Friday following the release of a trailer earlier this week .'Not sure we'll hear any bombshells [about the Royal Family] in tomorrow's chat with her old friend Ellen. Certainly, at this stage, the clip they've released is Meghan reminiscing about her days as a struggling actress,' Ms Adams explained.'She spent a fair bit of time at the Warner Bros.
The Ford Explorer she had in her early 20s that she mentioned was a good running vehicle. I don’t remember any time she had to crawl out of the back of it to get out, like she said.
“The doors worked fine on that vehicle until the day she got rid of it.”
The 40-year-old duchess - who has children Archie, two, and Lili, five months, with husband Prince Harry - also spoke about her children's book, 'The Bench', but Thomas argued the story isn't interesting for kids.
He said: "That book is not for children. No child would read or understand that book.
“That is an adult’s book, it’s for her husband. No kid would be interested. The only thing interesting for a kid in that book is the picture of the dog on the cover.”
Despite his comments, Thomas is still hopeful he can mend his differences with the former 'Suits' star.
He said: “Sooner or later I do think as a family we are going to get together.
“It’s sort of ridiculous we can’t and it’s all down to bad tempers. But for an old man I’m doing OK. I’ve got a bad heart, but I am doing all right.
“Before the wedding she made speeches around the world, for the UN and so on, and said there ‘should be more men like my dad’. So at that point we were in a good place, but it all went downhill when she met Harry.”
