Everyone in Meghan Markle’s circle seems to be adjusting well to royal life — except for her father.
Thomas Markle recently gave an exclusive interview where he candidly discussed the situation between him and his daughter. After explaining how he’s been locked out of the royal family and is being prevented from contacting her, he went on to say, “I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now. This one isn’t even a stage smile — this is a pained smile.” He also said that he thinks Meghan is “terrified.”
But there’s no evidence to suggest that the Duchess of Sussex is anything but happy with her new life, and a source close to Meghan and Harry recently revealed that the new couple is, “frustrated [Thomas] keeps speaking to the tabloids and taking payment for interviews.”
Thomas’ actions over the past several months have not sat well with anyone associated with the royal family. He was busted arranging a paparazzi shoot around the time of Meghan and Harry’s wedding, and in a TMZ interview last month he complained about the Queen’s refusal to meet with him. He even dished on Prince Harry’s opinions about President Donald Trump and Brexit.
Needless to say, that sort of gossiping won’t do for one of the most powerful and prestigious families in the world. You can understand his daughter’s “frustration,” and you have to wonder if Thomas will ever get his act together and be welcomed into the royal fold.
