Ever since Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got engaged Meghan’s family has been talking to the press non-stop. Her half-siblings have been non-stop talking about the new Duchess when in reality they haven’t been in contact with her in years. The craziest is that her father, Thomas Markle is in the middle of the media frenzy as well.
After months of bad press from her father, Meghan is supposedly done with him. A source told the Daily Mail that Thomas has “no chance” to reconcile with his daughter.
“A reconciliation is completely off the table at the moment,” the close friend told Daily Mail. “There’s no chance right now – he’s been a complete embarrassment.”
If you are completely unaware of all the Markle family drama here’s a quick refresher.
Most recently Thomas did a nine-hour interview with Daily Mail about his daughter and her new life that he’s not privy to.
“I refuse to stay quiet,” he said. “What riles me is Meghan’s sense of superiority She’d be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today. Everything that Meghan is, I made her. […] She became the woman that she is today thanks to everything I did for her. And did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn’t even speak to me now. How cold is that?”
He went on to say he could die any day and that maybe Meghan’s life would be easier if he was dead. The reason why he thinks Meghan isn’t talking to him anymore is because of a few minor critics he voiced about the royal family.

In July 2018 he gave an interview to The Sun saying that Meghan looks “terrified” being a Duchess. He went on to say she paid a high price to be married “to that family” and that the royal dress code that Meghan has to follow now is “ridiculous.”
“Why in 2018 are we dressing like the 1930s? Why do they have to cover their knees?” he asked.
On top of that, he backtracked and defended himself staging and selling those pap shots.
“The reason I am being shunned is because I made a profit on the staged pictures. Anyone who makes a profit off the royal family becomes shunned. But I could have made well over $100,000 by just doing a talk show. So if I moved to London and started selling cups with my daughter’s face on, would they shun me? The royal family is living by rules that are outdated. Hal od Great Britain seems to make a fortune selling pictures of my daughter and her husband. Are they shunned?”
There is a stark difference between random people profiting off of Meghan’s image and her own dad profiting off of her image. He was invited to the wedding but ultimately didn’t attend. He felt embarrassed because of the photos of him googling Meghan and Harry’s engagement were staged. He sold those images from anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000. He was encouraged by Meghan’s half-sister Samantha to stage the photos. He also allegedly faked having a heart attack to get out of attending the wedding.
He’s truly talked and photographed his way into a hole and now he thinks he can get out by not changing his behavior. Looks like Meghan isn’t having it.
