Meghan Markle’s Dad Thinks the Royals Have Stolen His Daughter
They say that when you marry someone, you marry their family, too.
Unfortunately for Prince Harry, his new wife Meghan Markle has a cool-ass mom but the rest of her relatives are flat-out garbage people with
For a long time, it looked as though Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, would be the worst of the lot.
But in the weeks since the wedding, Meg’s dad, Thomas Markle, has been giving Samantha a run for her money in the terribleness department.
First, Thomas Markle skipped the wedding for reasons that still aren’t completely clear.
Then he proceeded to give a series of bonkers interviews to less-than-reputable outlets like TMZ, in which he seethed about everything from the way he’s been treated in the press to the fact that Donald Trump gets to meet the queen.
Those closest to Thomas say he feels as though he’s been abandoned by both Meghan and the royals.
He believes he’s been hung out to dry without anyone helping him to navigate the rough waters of constant media scrutiny.
“Thomas adores his daughter and swears he never wanted attention from the interviews,” says a source close to Thomas.
“All he’s ever cared about is protecting Meghan.”
The insider adds that Thomas expected an open line of communication with the royals, saying:
“He wants the royals to stand by his side, but of course so far they haven’t.”
But if Thomas is waiting for an apology, we hope he’s not holding his breath.
Because apparently, Meghan thinks he’s the one who should be saying he’s sorry.
“Meghan hasn’t spoken to Thomas since the day after her wedding,” says a palace insider.
The source adds that the royals are “frustrated” that Thomnas continues to talk to grant interviews.
“Thomas is walking a fine line,” says a different informant.
“This blabbing needs to stop if he wants to maintain any relationship with Harry and Meghan.”
Needless to say, that seems extremely unlikely.
If we’ve learned anything about the Markle family, it’s that blabbing is what they do best — and Meghan made the right call by moving an ocean away from them.
