Thomas Markle is “furious” with Sharon Osbourne after she publicly slammed him, according to reports.
Meghan Markle’s dad was accused of having a “bad drinking problem” by the X Factor judge as she hit out at him on her panel show The Talk.
She said: “It is so obvious that you have a drinking problem, and it’s obvious that over the last few years, you haven’t been close with your daughter.

“Get yourself clean and sober and then come back,” she urged the 74 year old.
“Just be happy for your daughter. Let her live her life. She is so dignified you should try to give a little bit of that dignity for her.”
Ozzy Osbourne’s wife added that Megan must “feel so humiliated, so embarrassed by her father,” stinging even more by saying: “He’s the last person she’d tell about being pregnant.”

Now pals of Prince Harry’s father in law have defended him by telling The Sun he doesn’t have a problem, only occasionally having a glass of wine with a meal.
“He’s in shock about these claims,” a friend told the publication. “It’s totally untrue and he’s been through enough with his recent health issues without people making these sorts of allegations.
“He’s livid. Utterly furious. Sharon Osbourne doesn’t know him at all. How dare she say these things.”
Sharon’s claims come just days after Thomas claimed that his daughter was “terrified” of royal duties.
“My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified,” he told The Sun on Sunday.
“I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now.”
