Thomas Markle has claimed his daughter Duchess Meghan is controlling what Prince Harry wears and eats and hinted that their marriage might not last.
The 74-year-old retired lighting director hasn't spoken to the 37-year-old former actress since before she married the flame-haired hunk at the beginning of May but, from what he's seen online, he's convinced she's controlling his dress sense - even though the royal family have strict fashion rules in place - and his eating habits.
Speaking to the Mail on Sunday newspaper, he said: "Meghan is very maternal by nature. She loves to cook and she will mother Harry. He's eating properly now, he's dressing the way she wants him to. All men need that."
Thomas also hinted that their marriage may not work out as the brunette beauty took the same approach when she was married to her first husband Trevor Engelson, whom she split from after two years in 2013 due to "irreconcilable differences".
Meghan and Harry tied the knot at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, Windsor, on May 19 surrounded by their close relatives, fellow royals and their friends.
