Thomas Markle Won’t Stop Talking, Enjoys Humiliating the Royal Family

Meghan Markle is happily married to a literal prince, but her disgruntled father Thomas Markle feels like she’s been stolen.

His constant speaking to the press is distressing to Meghan and the Royals, but it sounds like Thomas is starting to enjoy making them uncomfortable.

That’s not speculation — he comes right out and says it. Takea  look.

No one gets to choose their parents, folks. 

Even though he had already given what was allegedly his “last interview,” Thomas Markle spoke to TMZ to warn the Royal Family that he’s not going away.

“I was silent for a full year,” Thomas says.

“And the press beat me up every day,” he laments. “Saying I was a hermit hiding in Mexico.”

It sounds like he is one of those people who has been consumed by media coverage and speculation instead of just ignoring it for his daughter’s sake.

“So,” Thomas explains. “I gave my story.”

Obviously, Meghan and her new in-laws haven’t been thrilled that he’s just saying whatever comes to mind and getting paid for interviews.

“Apparently,” Thomas says. “That interview put the royal family in their silence mode. …”

That would be a cue for a good parent to clam up if he values the relationship with his daughter. Thomas chose a different path.

“So,” Thomas describes. “I gave another interview to break the silence.”

If your actions are upsetting someone, you usually want to stop that behavior instead of ramping it up.

But, as Thomas explains, he is effectively blackmailing his daughter’s family into contacting him.

“All they have to do is speak to me,” he offers.

“Tomorrow is my birthday,” Thomas continues to TMZ.

He reminds folks that he is “74 years old.”

“And,” he says. “I’m enjoying the fact that I can make the entire royal family not speak.”

What kind of sadistic glee is he getting out of this?

“And maybe,” he imagines. “I can get a laugh out of the duchess.”

Meghan is part of that family — and his behavior is putting her in an impossible position.

Does she speak with him to buy his silence … or is that letting the terrorists win, so to speak?

A source close to the Royals tells Entertainment Tonight that Thomas Markle hasn’t been in touch with them.

The source explains that Meghan and Harry “haven’t had any contact” with Thomas during his little interview spree.

“[They] are frustrated he keeps speaking to the tabloids,” the insider explains. “And taking payment for interviews”

“The phone number that I call doesn’t work anymore,” Thomas Markle himself said in an interview with The Sun.

“The, I guess, liaison with the royal family never answers back,” Thomas complains. “And there’s no address I can write to, so I have no way of contacting my daughter.”

“My message would be, ‘I love you, I miss you, I’m sorry for anything that went wrong,'” he claims.

“And I want to be her child’s grandfather and I want to be near them,” Thomas begs. “I want to be a part of their life.”

Thomas Markle also blabbed some claims that Meghan is terrified and miserable.

“My thing about my daughter right now,” he alleges. “Is that I think she is terrified.”

“I see it in her eyes,” he claims. “I see it in her face and I see it in her smile.”

“I’ve seen her smile for years,” Thomas says. “I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now.”

According to Thomas: “This one isn’t even a stage smile — this is a pained smile.”

Some people cannot resist digging the hole even deeper.

You can’t choose your parents, but you can choose your friends.

Meghan’s friend Priyanka Chopra tells People that Meghan is loving married, royal life.

“She’s doing amazing,” Priyanka reports. “It’s so nice to see.”

Priyanka, as you may recall, was also a guest at the royal wedding. Unlike Thomas, who skipped his daughter’s wedding for vague reasons.

It sounds like, if you ever (in a fit of adolescent frustration) told your parents that they were the most embarrassing parents on the planet, you might owe them an apology.

That title may belong to Thomas Markle.

Samantha Markle to Half-Sister: You’re Basically Killing Our Dad!

Samantha Markle has once again gone on the attack against her famous half-sister.

This statement is not exactly newsworthy, we know.

At this point, considering all Samantha has said about Meghan Markle, it would be more surprising if she did NOT attack the new Royal Family member.

Ever since Markle got engaged to Prince Harry, Samantha has dragged her half-sibling left and right, slamming Meghan for being ungrateful and unloving toward her own family.

(It’s here that we must note how Samantha is 17 years older than and that she didn’t grow up in the same household as Meghan and that she barely knows her.)

But even Samantha may have plummeted to a new low with her latest round of Tweets.

On Tuesday, Samantha blasted her half-sibling on Twitter, calling her out for spending the day paying tribute to Nelson Mandela and his family… yet not taking the time to talk to her very own relatives.

“How about you pay tribute to your own father?!” Samantha wrote in one tweet, actually adding:

“Enough is enough. Act like a humanitarian, act like a woman. If our father dies, it’s on you Meg!”

samtweet2

Well… okay then!

Tell us how you really feel, Samantha.

She made this scathing remark on the heels of Thomas Markle once again babbling to the press about his non-relationship with his famous child.

In the video below, Thomas says he’s being shunned by Meghan and that she clearly terrified of all those around her these days:

Elsewhere, Samantha dissed Meghan for “ignoring” their dad and asked her how she could even look at herself in the mirror.

These Tweets came just after Thomas Markle told TMZ that he wasn’t going to stop to the media and was “unfazed” by reports that Prince Harry and his daughter were “frustrated” with his recent interviews with both The Sun and the British morning show “Good Morning Britain.”

Heck, Thomas even bragged about he’s making the Royal Family speechless.

“Maybe I can get a laugh out of the duchess,” Thomas even told TMZ, clearly misreading the situation as much as anyone possibly can.

samtweet

Thomas, of course, did not attend Meghan and Harry’s wedding.

He was recovering at the time from a heart attack and from the embarrassment of a scandal in which he admitted to paying the paparazzi for to take flattering photos of himself.

Prior to making headlines for these incidents, Thomas was living a very quiet life in Mexico, far away from the spotlight.

“My father is not an embarassmnt for loving his daughter! The Royals are an embarrassment for being so cold,” Samantha added today.

“You should be ashamed of yourselves @Kensington Royal.”

samtweet3

Markle took the high road and just gave a generic statement after her dad backed out of her wedding, mostly just wishing him the best.

We doubt she’ll respond here to her half-sister’s quotes or her dad’s pleading, either, despite how both have gone viral in recent days.

“I want to be a part of their life. I’d like to put our differences behind us and get together. I miss [her] very much,” Thomas told The Sun when asked over this past weekend if he had any messages for Meghan.

Again, we can’t imagine she’ll have any public message for him in response.

He concluded as follows:

“I don’t care whether she’s pissed off at me – I want to see her.

“I just want to have a father-daughter relationship. I took care of my mother the last five years of her life. My daughter said to me she would take care of me in my declining years.

“I’m not talking about money – I’m talking about taking care of me. That’s important to me.”

Thomas at least comes across as semi-sympathetic in these interviews.

Samantha Markle, conversely, comes across as semi-psychotic.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton: Due to Give Birth on the Same Day?

We recently discussed the report that Meghan Markle is expecting a boy and a girl — fraternal twins — with Prince Harry.

There is also a report that Kate Middleton is already pregnant with her fourth royal baby.

A new report confirms them both … and says that Kate and Meghan may end up giving birth on the same day

A new InTouch cover gleefully announces this story to the world.

“They’re both pregnant!” the cover proclaims.

The cover goes on to proclaim that both Kate and Meghan are “due the same day!”

That would be a real gamechanger, though, as we all know, due dates are more of an educated guess.

“A girl for Kate,” the headline continues. “And twins for Meghan!”

InTouch’s report continues with further details.

“Meghan,” they explain. “Conceived just a few weeks after Kate.”

And apparently this has forged a closer knit between the two duchesses.

“Kate and Meghan bonded over the men they married,” they reveal. “Now they’re bonding over being pregnant together.”

It wasn’t so long ago that the two were rumored to be royally feuding, but this report says that “That’s all water under the bridge now.”

InTouch offers a few more details.

“Meghan,” they say. “Wants to give birth in the U.S.”

Some people are more comfortable giving birth at home. Especially when that means that their child will also be an American citizen.

The repot says that, because Meghan’s “due date is around the same time as Kate’s,” there’s a very real possibility that “they could give birth the same day!”

“While the pregnancies are the subject of plenty of palace buzz,” the report confides. “The duchesses have only shared their news with a small group of friends and family.”

That all sounds so exciting.

But, as Gossip Cop points out, there are some apparent holes in the story.

First of all, InTouch says that the “palace confirms.” Kensington Palace has done no such thing, and reportedly said as much to Gossip Cop.

Second of all, do they have the same due date or are their due dates merely close to each other?

We know that due dates can sometimes be given as a range, but … it sounds like the story isn’t entirely straight.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Meghan and Harry were recently spotted on a lunch date in Dublin.

The two shared some beer with lunch. That might be standard in the British Isles, but it’s definitely not something that anyone should do when pregnant.

The world has just seen photos of Prince Louis’s Christening. Kate’s youngest looks so precious and cute — and Kate herself looks so radiant — that it’s easy to understand why people are eager for another royal baby.

(Or three)

But there is no indication that Kate or Meghan are pregnant.

Remember, Kate has extremely bad morning sickness — which is how we were able to predict her pregnancy last year a couple of weeks before it was announced.

And Meghan, as we mentioned, was washing down her lunch with Guiness.

Reports like these are always tempting because they can be exciting, but let’s keep a cool head and wait for news that we can verify.

We just got the latest royal baby a couple of months ago. We can be patient.

Thomas Markle: My Daughter is “Terrified” of the Royals!

Meghan Markle is miserable, scared and all alone, clearly in need of her father these days.

So says… well… Meghan Marke's father himself.

Thomas, who resides in Mexico and who has not had a particularly close relationship with his famous child in years, talked openly with The Sun this weekend about the former Suits actress.

She's far better known these days, of course, for her marriage to Prince Harry than for her role on that long-running USA Network hit.

And Thomas says this marriage is simply killing his daughter.

"My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified," Thomas told the newspaper in remarks posted on Sunday.

He added:

"I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. 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."

Markle's dad made headlines back in May after he chose NOT to attend the Royal Wedding.

He decided this because he had recently suffered a heart attack and also because he was the subject of scorn in Great Britain for agreeing to let the paparazzi snap pictures of him in exchange for money.

This is an act especially frowned upon within the confines of Kensington Palace.

"It really worries me. I think she's under too much pressure," Thomas went on in this interview. "There's a high price to pay to be married to that family."

Despite Meghan often breaking protocol and doing her own thing, Thomas called out Kate Middleton's fashion and the Royals in general as part of this sit-down, asking:

"Why in 2018 are we dressing like the 1930s? Why do they have to cover their knees?"

Referring to the aforementioned photo scandal, Thomas went on to tell The Sun he thinks he is "being shunned" by Markle and her new in-laws because he "made a profit on the staged pictures."

He said he's apologized many times over for the mistake.

He also says he has no way to get in touch with Meghan… and he really wants to do so.

"My message [to her] would be, 'I love you, I miss you, I'm sorry for anything that went wrong,'" he says here.

"And I want to be her [future] child's grandfather and I want to be near them. I want to be a part of their life. I'd like to put our differences behind us and get together. I miss you very much."

This is the second time Thomas Markle has spoken to the press.

Check out his first set of controversial comments HERE.

"I don't care whether she's pissed off at me – I want to see her," he concluded to The Sun this time around.

"I just want to have a father-daughter relationship. I took care of my mother the last five years of her life. My daughter said to me she would take care of me in my declining years.

"I'm not talking about money – I'm talking about taking care of me. That's important to me."

Meghan Markle Continues to Piss Off the Queen By Breaching Royal Protocol

We’re sure being royalty has its perks.

You get to call people peasants and sit in the fanciest chairs … all-in-all, it’s probably a pretty sweet gig.

But there are just so many freakin’ rules you have to follow.

It’s like someone combined being a celebrity with being in fourth grade and tossed in crowns to sweeten the deal.

If you’re raised as royalty, that’s one thing.

You’ve known since childhood that you would be forced to spend your adult life wearing a fake-ass smile and waving to the masses in a way that makes it look like you just learned how to wave.

But if you marry into the Windsor clan — especially after a relatively brief courtship — the culture shock is probably quite severe.

That’s what Meghan Markle seems to be learning the hard way these days, as she attempts to navigate the byzantine labyrinth that is royal protocol.

At one of her first public appearances as a royal, Meghan’s bare shoulders resulted in clutched pearls and shattered monocles all over the British Empire.

Shortly thereafter, Meghan had the audacity to try and hold Prince Harry’s hand in plain view of the plebes. 

Needless to say, another scandal ensued.

One would think that after being thoroughly admonished by royal traditionalists in the press, Meg would cool it on the modern attire and PDA, right?

Not so fast, guvnah!

According to several media outlets, Meghan stepped out sporting bare shoulders and clutching Harry’s arm at the 100th birthday celebration for the Royal Air Force yesterday.

And the insults to the crown didn’t end there.

Apparently, Meghan once again crossed her legs at the knee (a no-no, according to royal etiquette experts) in open defiance of the unwritten code of royal conduct.

For shame!

This is probably exactly what the Queen was afraid of when Harry married an American.

This is like that dreadful ordeal with those blasted New World colonies all over again.

Next thing you know, she’ll be downing hot dogs and Budweiser to commemorate the day that impertinent document was signed.

Meghan Markle: Who Just Slammed Her as “Common?!?”

You can refer to members of The Royal Family as many things.

Spoiled, perhaps. Out of touch, maybe. Old fashioned, almost definitely.

But there’s one insult that rises above the rest.

There’s one word swipe you can take that will serve as a legitimate burn, something that will cause the Queen to look up from her Cream of Wheat and give you a true stink eye.

And a friend of Prince Charles just used this term to describe Meghan Markle’s loved ones.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, Nicky Haslam – was born to one of Queen Victoria’s goddaughters, went to school with Prince Charles and socialized with Princess Diana – took aim at Markle’s family and bashed them as “frightfully common.”

Yes, common.

This may sound relatively harmless and totally innocent, but think about it for a moment.

Is there anything worse you can say about someone associated with the Royal Family than referring to him or her as a “common” person?

We really don’t think so.

Meghan, of course, married Prince Harry on May 19.

Of all the details surrounding these monumental event, two things stood out, both of which Haslam had an opinion on.

First, Thomas Markle did not attend her daughter’s wedding; partly due to health problems and partly due to embarrassment over a paparazzi photo scandal in which he received money in exchange for a few not-exactly-candid poses.

Markle was crushed by her dad’s absence.

But Haslam was grateful he didn’t show up for the big day.

“It would have been awful if that huge lump had been there,” he told the aforementioned British newspaper.

The second thing to really note about this Royal Wedding was, naturally, Markle’s wedding dress.

What would it look like, folks wondered prior to the nuptials? Who would design it?

For the most part, reviews for the reviews of the Givenchy gown were positive in the hours and days after the ceremony, but Haslma has no idea why.

“I didn’t very much like her dress,” he says here. “It didn’t fit, among other things. It should have been made of thinner stuff, it seemed to be made of concrete.”

(Pop singer Katy Perry, we might as well add, also slammed Meghan’s dress, saying “I would have done one more fitting.”)

Nicky Haslam clearly sucks and isn’t really worth spending too much time on.

But sources tell Us Weekly that those even closer to the Royal Family are frustrated by Markle; or, to be more specific, frustrated by Marke’s father and the interviews he continues to give.

“Thomas is walking a fine line,” a source tells this tabloid. “This blabbing needs to stop if he wants to maintain any relationship with Harry and Meghan.”

Late last month, Thomas actually hurled some shade at Queen Elizabeth, wondering why President Trump has had a chance to meet her, but he has not.

“If the Queen is willing to meet our arrogant, ignorant, and insensitive president, she has no excuse not to meet me,” Thomas told TMZ, adding:

“I’m nowhere near as bad.”

On that point, we’re guessing even Haslam would agree.
