Meghan Markle's father, Thomas, recently shocked the world by revealing some controversial information in a recent interview with Good Morning Britain.

Some of the surprising things he said

They do talk regularly, though, and about everything apparently. Mr. Markle said he and Harry talked about Donald Trump's presidency and even Brexit.
