With her family at war, the last few weeks have been tougher than Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, could ever have imagined.

And through the endless battle with her bitter family, Prince Harry has stood by her side. "Prince Harry's very protective," an inside source reveals.

But one thing that Harry hasn't been able to protect her from is the barrage of attacks coming from her own father Thomas Markle, 74, who has now blasted her in his most scathing interview yet.

Painting Meghan as 'cold' and uncaring, he says the former Suits actress cut him off after he blabbed about her and Harry in a series of interviews, and posed for staged photographs before her wedding.

"What riles me is Meghan's sense of superiority. She'd be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today," he snapped, before making a very low blow. "Perhaps it would be easier for Meghan if I died. Everybody would be filled with sympathy for her."
