Like so many people who have followed Thomas Markle’s reign of terror in the media, Meghan Markle has been driven to tears by her idiot dad’s cruel comments.
Now, Daddy Dearest has given yet another embarrassing interview. He claims that this interview will be his last.
In it, he says that Prince Harry gave him a hard time right after his heart attack — and that Thomas then hung up on his son-in-law.
In a new interview with The Daily Mail, 74-year-old Thomas Markle says that his relationship with Prince Harry went downhill after his photo scandal in May.
“Harry told me that I should never go to the press,” Thomas says of an early conversation. “That it would end in tears.”
Thomas describes the advice that Harry gave him about the entertainment news media: “He said, “They will eat you alive.””
Unlike Harry, Thomas had not spent his entire life as one of the most famous people on the planet. He was not prepared to deal with people who need to make headlines and to sell photographs.
“He was right,” Thomas admits.
Back in May, it came to light that Thomas had been posing for paparazzi photos in exchange for a little money — in an effort to improve his image.
When Harry first called to ask him if it was true, he admits that he lied by denying it. After further details came to light, though, he admitted it.
Thomas says that Harry told him: “If you had listened to me this would never have happened.”
“Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead,” Thomas recalls having said to his son-in-law. “Then you could pretend to be sad.”
“Then,” Thomas reveals. “I hung up.”
As you may recall, there were adorable paparazzi photos of Thomas.
Some featured him reading a book about Great Britain.
Others featured him getting fitted for a suit.
These were, it turned out, staged.
Thomas had apparently become obsessed with his coverage in the media, and concerned about a paparazzi photo that featured him holding a can of beer.
You know what’s really odd?
For months, Thomas Markle, just like a couple of Meghan’s horrible siblings, has done nothing but make her newly wedded life more stressful by constantly blabbing to any microphone he can find.
But Good Morning Britain read this new, “final” interview with Thomas and the hosts all seemed to feel sorry for the man.
They lamented that Harry and Meghan haven’t visited Meghan’s family, and that Prince Charles didn’t personally call Thomas after walking Meghan down the aisle in his stead.
In the view of those hosts, the Markle’s are “more real,” and the bad behavior that the world has witnessed is a consequence of the royal family not giving them enough support.
In real life, however, individuals are usually responsible for their own misbehavior.
Thomas Markle trashes his daughter at every turn and comes across as a drama queen.
His constant blabbing makes it impossible for Meghan to trust him enough to contact him, and then he whines about not having heard from her.
Meghan Markle’s vile sister Samantha Grant may be the intentionally hurtful and cruel one, but Thomas’ endless stream of nonsense is every bit as harmful to Meghan, no matter his intentions.
If this really does end up being his final interview, well, maybe he really does intend to be a better father from now on.
But even if he keeps his word, it could be a very long time before Meghan or Prince Harry are willing or able to trust him.
