Meghan Markle‘s alienated father has opened up about his strained relationship with the Sussexes accusing the Duchess of her decision of stepping back from the Royal Family, quoting it has ultimately welcomed destruction in the Windsor heritage.
The truth comes out conscious
The old fellow told, “It’s disappointing because she actually got every girl’s dream. Every young girl wanted to become a princess and she got that, and now she’s tossing that away, for it looks like she’s tossing it away for money. Apparently $3million and a 26-bedroom home isn’t enough for them. When they got married they took on an obligation, and the obligation is to be part of the Royals and to represent the Royals, and it would be foolish for them not to. This is one of the greatest long-living institutions ever and they’re destroying it. They’re cheapening it and making it shabby. It’s kind of embarrassing to me.”
Thomas Markle Snr, however, assumed his own stand while speaking about the new tell-all documentary related to his daughter and son-in-law and blamed Harry of being “way too sensitive” in suing over the publishing of a letter that Meghan sent him.
Channel 5’s documentary, Thomas Markle: My Story, shot during last year at Thomas’ North West Mexico home, features countless new videos and photos of Meghan’s transformation to a matured lady.
Asked why he’s decided to sit for the paid interview, Thomas said: “Because I want everyone to know that I’m not all the trashy things that are being said about me. I want Harry and Meghan to see this video and know that this is not fair. To them I don’t exist and now Harry, whether he realises it or not, is part of my family and I’m part of his. We should be talking.”
Thomas and Meghan’s relationship has been extremely difficult since the father posed for staged photos in the lead up to the royal wedding, either trying a suit or reading a book about Britain.
The feeble man added: “He’s not 12 years old any more, he’s got no right to be this sensitive. There are other parts of the letter that I would never put out because they’re too offensive and too hurtful to me. And that’s where it’s at now. I’m going to defend myself and I’m going to be paid for it. I don’t care. At this point, they owe me. The Royals owe me. Harry owes me, Meghan owes me. What I’ve been through I should be rewarded for. My daughter told me that when I reach my senior years she’ll take care of me. I’m in my senior years now, it’s time to look after daddy.”
Thomas believes there’s a good chance that his daughter will never see him again.
He said: “I can’t see her reaching out to me. I think both of them are turning into lost souls, I don’t know what they’re looking for. I don’t think they know what they’re looking for. The last time they might see me is being lowered into the ground. I don’t think at this point they are thrilled to see me or want to talk to me. We used to share everything, we used to share our good moments all the time and I miss all that, certainly the fact she’s had her first child is a very important thing. She was the closest thing to me for years and years and years. I miss the way she was, I don’t know who she is now – that’s the problem.”
The video portrays shelves are covered in memorabilia of his daughter and grandson, a photograph of the royal wedding and a mug celebrating Archie’s birth.
He continued, “It’s kind of painful because I wasn’t there to share the experience. They’re on everything. I actually heard that they’re on a pack of condoms. I don’t know if that’s true or not.”
A Reflection of the Royal Wedding
Thomas also admitted about his utter disappointment as he watched Prince Charles walk Meghan down the aisle at St George’s Chapel to tie the knot back in May 2018, who watched the ceremony on a small TV unable to turn up for the grand party due to a sudden heart attack that left him in surgical care.
He elaborated, “My daughter looked beautiful. I wished that I could have been there with her. I was certainly appreciative that Charles was there and walking her down the aisle. I was jealous of him, I really wanted to do that. I’ll admit that I cried a little about that. To this day I can’t forget that moment, but she looked beautiful and it was a nice wedding.”
“When she was born I mean couldn’t have been a happier man. She was born via c-section so I got to hold her first. I met her first and I fell in love with her and never stopped. She became the most special thing in my life. She’s a natural beauty, she always has been. I was just knocked out by that child. I think Meghan would say I did a very good job as a father. She was turning into a very nice young lady.”
Thomas also revealed about lying to Harry and Meghan about the staged photos he set up to pretend.
“Harry was furious with me and Meghan was furious with me, and I said I wanted to apologise. I said I want to apologise to the Queen and to the Royal Family, but I was told by them don’t.”
Charting the depression
After his unexpected illness, Harry told Thomas, ‘if you had listened to me, this wouldn’t have happened to you’ when the helpless man opened up saying, “To me, that was a very rude thing to say, especially when he knew I was laying in a hospital bed. At that point I said to him ‘it’s too bad I didn’t die because then you guys could pretend you were sad’ and then I hung up on them. I was done. Now that may have caused everything, I don’t know, but I’ve not heard from them or spoken to them since.”
He deliberately lied to Piers Morgan when interviewed on Good Morning Britain, saying the couple had been checking it in a bid to improve their image.
“I never got cards, I never got flowers, I never got a phone call to see how I was doing.”
Regretting about the staged photos, he said: “They’ll haunt me for the rest of my life and follow me forever. I’ll never be able to escape, it will always be there. I feel kind of stupid, I should have been a little smarter about it. I should have been a little less trusting.”
Thomas claimed that he discovered Meghan’s pregnancy in a news piece on the radio.
“I was sitting in my car waiting to cross the border and I heard the good news from the royals is that Meghan is pregnant. Which is almost a joke when you tell people, well you heard it on the radio. This is my daughter, talking about my grandchild. She’s going to have a grandchild that’s mine. I’m not hearing about it on the phone, I’m hearing about it on the radio.”
His grief even found a way in looking at Archie for the first time from the photocall at Windsor Castle.
“The first time I saw the picture was when Harry carried him out for the first time. He’s a cute little kid. He’s going to have his father’s hair. I hope he has my nose then every time they see Archie they’re going to see me.”
