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!
