Thomas Markle Jr. has come to Meghan Markle’s defense. The Duchess’ estranged half-brother spoke out against sister Samantha Markle, saying she is “jealous and bitter” and he, as well as his dad Thomas Markle have begged her to stop “spreading lies.”
Thomas Jr. added that he would love nothing more than to reunite the family and be able to meet his future niece/nephew.
Following his outspoken daughter, Samantha Markle, Thomas Markle is now coming for George Clooney. While he agrees with the actor that the press is treating Meghan Markle “like crap,” he is upset about George discussing the letter drama.
While George never mentioned Thomas by name when slamming the situation, it is not hard to put two and two together. Meg’s dad is also upset with the friends who blasted him and believes he is getting a “raw deal” when it comes to the press.
Samantha Markle is clapping back at George Clooney. THE GEORGE CLOONEY! During a recent press panel, the actor defended his friend Meghan Markle, saying she is being “pursued and vilified,” just like Diana was. He added how terrible it was for Thomas Markle to blast the letter Meghan wrote him; cue Samantha.
She tweeted at George “Hey Looney Clooney! Your lawyer wife should have taught you not to make statements without full facts.”
She is probably just bitter because she will not be in the royal baby’s life, while George is rumored to be the godfather.
George Clooney has come to Meghan Markle’s defense in the wake of Thomas Markle publicizing a private letter from his daughter. While at a press panel in Los Angeles the A-list actor told People and Hello that he feels the Duchess is being “pursued and vilified.” He compared what the paparazzi are currently doing to what they did to Diana; “it’s history repeating itself.”
George also addressed the rumors that he will be named godfather of the royal baby saying, “Oh yes, I’ll be godfather of the royals apparently. No! I’m a father of twins, I have enough sh*t to deal with—literally.”
The Queen has made her opinion known about the drama surrounding Meghan Markle’s family. According to Vanity Fair, Her Majesty told both Meghan and Prince Harry to deal with the situation before Christmas as the “whole thing was becoming a nightmare.”
Meghan is reportedly “at her wit’s end,” but still has no plans to comment publicly on the drama, while Harry is “angry” and “upset” about his father-in-law’s behavior.
Still no comment from either of Palaces on the drama.
Thomas Markle has shared what was written in the letter he claims was sent by daughter Meghan Markle. Although not-yet-verified as authentic, the handwritten letter was released to the Daily Mail on Saturday.
The five-page note begins with Duchess Meghan calling out her “Daddy” for all the pain he has caused and in doing so, breaking her “heart into a million pieces.” She continues with how she has supported her father both emotionally and financially, but the “attacks made at Harry” were the most “painful of all.”
To conclude, Meg begs her father to just stop talking to the tabloids and let them live their lives.
Thomas defended his decision to release the personal details of the letter, which he has had since last August, because he couldn’t’ take all the lies that were being spread about him. Hmm….
Kensington Palace has not commented on the letter.
Friends say Meghan Markle wrote a letter to her father imploring him to stop talking to the media after her marriage to Prince Harry. She said he was “victimizing” her and needed to stop airing the dirty family laundry under the media eye.
Five female friends corroborated the story to The Daily Mail. They also say in response, father Thomas Markle begged her for a photo shoot together — likely so he could sell the snaps.
Thomas Markle Jr. is hoping his upcoming nuptials will be the come-together event his family needs. Meghan Markle’s half-brother told The Daily Mail that he would be extending an invite to Meghan and Prince Harry. He believes that if they come, they could spend some time with his dad, Thomas Markle, and “that would be good.”
It is doubtful the royals will attend the wedding.
Meghan Markle has failed to take the advice of Queen Elizabeth when it comes to dealing with her family drama. While Thomas Markle continues to bash his royal daughter—yes even during the holiday season—Meghan has remained silent on the issue. Her Majesty feels that Meg should acknowledge and find some sort of resolution on the matter.
A source spilled the drama to Vanity Fair saying, “The Queen was very concerned that it was spiraling out of control, which it was. Buckingham Palace wanted to be able to do something and be proactive. But Kensington Palace was not singing from the same hymn sheet.” Now there is reportedly a stale mate amongst the couriers within the two royal households.
It appears that Thomas Markle has chosen to ignore the ultimatum that his daughther, Meghan Markle has given him.
According to Vanity Fair, a source close to the Duchess said that Meghan has had one–and only one–conversation with her father since her royal wedding, and it was to give him a final offer of having any sort of relationship with her. Meghan said that the two could work on rebuilding their relationship, but he needed to stop speaking to the media. She also said that he needed to cut off contact with his other daughter Samantha Markle, who is to blame for much of the drama that has been stirred up in the family.
By continuing to speak to the press and most recently, releasing letters that Meghan has written him over the years, Thomas has clearly made his choice.
Thomas Markle spilled the beans to the DailyMail about missing his daughter’s wedding over the weekend, but it was just to clear his name, not do anything to damange Meghan’s reputation. Tom showed the paper medical records to prove he did indeed undergo surgery right before her wedding to Prince Harry, and that it wasn’t a stunt done out of ill will. One questionable quote came when he called Meghan “demanding but not rude” … though maybe that’s a good thing? A princess knows what she wants.
Meghan Markle is down a royal assistant. The story, shared by the Daily Mail, states that the Duchess’ assistant has quit after only six months. The news has come as a real “shock,” according to a royal source. The assistant, referred to as “Melissa,” reportedly played a big role in the royal wedding and all the drama that encompassed the event; such as Thomas Markle’s big mouth. There is no official word on why she quit and Kensington Palace has declined to comment on the matter.
The Markle family feud continues. Samantha Markle—who recently apologized to her half-sister and Prince Harry—is now calling Meghan a liar, for what she said in her speech at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji. Meghan addressed the crowd about the excitement of attending a university as well as the “challenges of being able to afford” that level of schooling. The Duchess said that through scholarships, financial aid and work-study, she was able to attend university. Samantha says this is not true; that their father Thomas Markle paid for all of Meghan’s university expenses. The spiteful sister tweeted that everyone needs to “stop the enabling” and “do not ever reward a lie.”
Despite previous reporting, MEGHAN MARKLE may be open to meeting with her father THOMAS MARKLE after all. The duchess is reportedly planning a trip to the United States to meet with her father this month; the dates and location are being kept top-secret. Whether this will be a reconciliation or a chance for Markle to make him sign an NDA are still up in the air. Stay tuned!
