Meghan Markle’s Father Could Spill ‘Embarrassing’ Secrets About Her, Biographer Warns
Ever since Meghan Markle got engaged to Prince Harry, her father, Thomas Markle, has received a lot of media attention. He has also not been shy about talking to journalists.
According to an author, Thomas could have “embarrassing” secrets about the duchess he might spill.
Meghan Markle’s father has been talking to the press
Meghan often talked lovingly about her father back when she was still an actor. However, in recent years, the two of them have become estranged.
In 2018, Thomas did not attend his daughter’s royal wedding. Some people believe this was because he had staged paparazzi shots and talked to the press about Meghan. After the wedding, he also sold a letter Meghan sent him to a British newspaper.
Recently, Thomas appeared on Good Morning Britain to give updates on his relationship with Meghan.
“I’ve made it quite clear that until I hear from her, until she does speak to me, that I will continue to do [interviews],” he said, according to Us Weekly.
He also added, “This is way too childish. This is kind of silly, it’s time to talk with each other, we’re family. … This is more than just me and my daughter now, this is me and my daughter, her husband and two babies involved now, so it’s time to do something. It’s time to talk.”
Thomas also revealed that, from his perspective, Meghan stopped talking to him because she felt he was “giving too much attention” to her older half-siblings, Thomas Jr. and Samantha. Thomas even said, “She wanted me to stop talking to them and I couldn’t.”
Additionally, he called Meghan “childish” and said she has “changed” since meeting Harry.
Thomas Markle could spill ‘embarrassing’ secrets, biographer warns
Author Tom Bower, who is planning on publishing a biography about Meghan, Thomas could continue talking to the press and sharing more “embarrassing” secrets about his daughter.
“She and her father had a very different relationship – growing up, they were really very close,” Bower explained to Closer. “She was really family-orientated when she was younger, but she seems to have completely erased memories of that and disowned him. Similarly, she cut off her ex-husband when her career started taking off. She seems to me to be a very ambitious, unforgiving person.”
He added, “But I think, much to her dismay, more will come out. I think Thomas is keeping some things back and that he has a lot of embarrassing stuff on her. There are skeletons in the closet and, when provoked, I think the secrets could all come out.”
Bower suggested that it would be good for Meghan to “communicate” with her father and other people in her past. The author said, “She seems to be hoping he’ll just go away, but he won’t!”
Bower believes the Sussexes are isolating themselves
Not only are the Sussexes estranged from many of Meghan’s family members, but they have distanced themselves from much of the royal family as well. According to Bower, Meghan and Harry’s strategy of isolating themselves will do a lot of damage.
“They seem to think they will be stronger by cutting people out, but they’re really just alienating their families,” Bower said. “I think it’s very sad for them both, and their children.”
He added, “They seem so desperate to control the narrative that they can’t risk anyone else influencing it – but this will simply cause more damage to them in the future, when their children grow up with no family around them.”
