Meghan Markle has hit a rough patch with her family since she married Prince Harry in May. The newly minted Duchess has dealt with a string of accusations and hurtful statements from her half-sister Samantha, and her father Thomas Markle. Both of them have been trying to steal the spotlight since before Meghan and Harry walked down the aisle, and it’s only gotten worse since.
Things have gotten so bad between Meghan and her dad, that she might actually have her own mother, Doria Ragland, intervene on her behalf. Rumors have been swirling that Markle might make a trip to her homeland of California. According to a report by the Daily Mail, a “close friend of the Duchess” said that Markle might finally handle things with her father on this trip.
“It has just become so embarrassing for Meghan. Like the elephant in the room when she’s with people she doesn’t know very well,” the source said of Thomas. “What frustrates Meghan the most is that her father doesn’t seem to take responsibility for any his actions, as if he can do no harm, and everyone else is to blame.”
The source continued, “Well, he is harming her by putting down the royal family. He’s harming her by making everything public. And the more he speaks with the media, the more she wants to stay away. The more he blasts the royal family, the more she wants to stay away.”
Apparently, Meghan has been reluctant to involve her mother Ragland in the drama with her father, but that might soon change.
“So far, Meghan’s mom hasn’t gotten involved, but that may all change when they see each other in person. Meghan has been adamant that her mom not get dragged into all the drama,” the source said. “But if anyone can talk some sense into her dad, it’s Doria. Meghan is now open to the possibility of her mom working some magic behind the scenes.”
Let’s hope so.
