Even though Thomas Markle has pretty much been excommunicated from the royal family, he’s still airing his grievances. He recently spoke to The Sun about his daughter Meghan, and how he believes she has been fake smiling. The reason? The pressures of her new royal life are overwhelming and “outdated,” according to Thomas.
“My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified,” he told The Sun.
He thinks that Markle is sacrificing her happiness to be married to Prince Harry.
“There’s a high price to pay to be married to that family,” he continued, talking about the various restrictions they must follow, like “outdated” dress codes—codes that Meghan’s not afraid to break every once in awhile.
Back in May, Thomas was shunned from the royal wedding for staging fake paparazzi photos. Despite that, he still feels like he was wronged by the royal family for making money from the photos.
“Half of Great Britain seems to make a fortune selling pictures of my daughter and her husband. Are they shunned?”
“I have already apologized to the Royal Family. I honestly think that if the Queen took the time to think that she would not see me because I did some stupid photographs, that is ridiculous.”
Thomas, who had a heart attack around the time of his daughter’s wedding, has regrets.
“Anytime anyone comes up to me and says, ‘So sorry, your daughter looked beautiful’,” he said.
“For the rest of my life I’ve got to live that down.”
If Meghan is fake smiling, then she’s got everyone fooled.
