Meghan Markle’s father Thomas says that Prince Harry told him to “give Donald Trump a chance” while the two were speaking on the phone.

Markle told Piers Morgan on “Good Morning Britain” that Prince Harry’s defense of the U.S. president came while he was sharing his own views on President Trump.

“I was complaining I didn’t like Donald Trump, he said, ‘give Donald Trump a chance,'” he said.

“I sort of disagreed with that. I still like Harry, that was his politics, I have my politics,” Markle told Morgan.

Markle also added that during the phone call, one Markle called a “loose conversation,” he and the prince also spoke about Brexit. “I think he was open to the experiment,” he said of Prince Harry.

The father of the new Duchess of Sussex claimed that his own views of President Trump have not changed, adding, “I think Trump has had his chances 100 times, and I think time’s up.”
