Meghan Markle's father has allegedly admitted he had the 'occasional sniff of cocaine' as he raised the Duchess of Sussex.

Thomas Markle, who was an Emmy-winning lighting director in the 1970s and 80s, also reportedly said he visited the Playboy Club in the Philippines, but did not pay for sex in the nearby red-light district.

According to the National Enquirer, he said: 'In the industry I worked in back in the '70s and '80s there (was) cocaine around a lot.

'And I'm sure that I had an occasional sniff of cocaine.'

A source seemed to back up the alleged admission, telling The Mirror: 'Cocaine was rife in the industry.

'It was a tough business, very tough. Tom endured long unsociable hours. He was at the very top of his game, and the demands on him were great.

'A lot of people on set took coke not just for recreational purposes but to keep them alert and allow them to work long hours.

'Tom was no different. Him saying he took the occasional sniff is conservative at best.

'What I will say though is it never affected his care and love of Meghan.

'She was the most powerful drug he knew. He was addicted to her. Every hour he could spend with away from work he did.'

The alleged admission is sure to heap further embarrassment upon Meghan who has not spoken to her father since before her wedding to Prince Harry in May.

He was unable to attend the wedding due to ill health, but has been ever-present in the public eye since then. 

Harry and Meghan and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to be among the guests on Friday at the marriage of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, along with the Queen and a host of royals.
