When Meghan Markle married Prince Harry back in May, she instantly became the Duchess of Sussex.
It’s a slightly better situation than when you got married and instantly became burdened by someone else’s student loan debt and sh-tty credit score.
Anyway, the good news is that Meghan is the only person on the planet ever to make the leap from basic cable legal drama to duchess.
The bad news is, that’s about as high as she’s gonna climb in the royal hierarchy.
But if you’re a Meg fan who thinks the royals should just give her the keys to Buckingham Palace and let an American take a crack at this “queen” job, you’re certainly not alone.
Meghan has some terrible siblings who make a point of embarrassing her every chance they get.
Usually, they do so by trash talking her to anyone who will listen.
But recently, Meg’s brother, Thomas Markle Jr. decided to pursue a different strategy by throwing shade at her in-laws instead.
“With Meghan’s determination and Harry’s charismatic personality above William, Harry and Meghan would be a great king & queen some day and make the Royal Family proud,” Thomas wrote in an open letter to Queen Elizabeth II.
As you probably already know, Prince Charles is next in line for the throne, followed by his son, Prince William.
That means it’s extremely unlikely that Prince Harry will ever become king.
In fact, that would necessitate Shakespearean levels of bloodshed.
And even if Harry became king, that wouldn’t make Meghan queen.
But Thomas doesn’t have time for all your “rules” and “logic.”
He knows what’s best for the royal family, and he wants the whole world to know it.
Yes, if you’re keeping track at home, this is the same brother who previously accused the Brits of turning Meghan into a royal “zombie.”
It seems he’s now changed his tack and decided that Meg is not the worst thing on two legs.
In fact, Thomas now believes his sister should literally be the next Queen of England.
Apparently, as long as the take is hot, Tom wants to claim it for his own.
Hopefully, dude is currently in his fifteenth minute of fame, because we really can’t stand much more of him.
