It's no secret that Megan Markle has a lot of problems with his family. The Duchess of Sussex has gone through a storm of public shame as well as family humiliation, with estrangement from both her father Thomas Markle and her sister Samantha Markle.
Even now, with Megan Markle busy with her son Archie Harrison, Markles' problems simply won't stop. In a recent interview, Thomas Markle broke his media silence over the past few months and called his daughter's speech "offensive".
Megan Markle has serious problems with her father
Although the parents of Megan Markle, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, divorced when she was young, maintained their relationship with their two parents at adulthood. She is reportedly enjoying a close relationship with her father, who works as a television broadcasting director.
Many times in the past, Megan Markle has talked about the valuable lessons her father instilled in her, including encouraging her to "make her own box" and not let anyone else determine who she was. He even credits him for his tireless work ethic and for giving her "Markel's nose".
However, somewhere around her engagement to Prince Harry, her relationship with Thomas Markle began to deteriorate. Step-by-step photos of the paparazzi of Thomas Markle, preparing for the royal wedding, were reported to have sent the royal family in turmoil. Then Senior Markle began interviewing the media, revealing intimate secrets of Megan Markle's life.
Megan Markle slowly began to stop communicating with his father. Instead of Thomas Markle, Prince Charles led her down the aisle on her wedding day.
Thomas Markle has been silent since the birth of Archie Harrison
Since the marriage of Megan Markle to Prince Harry in May 2018. Thomas Markle is consistent with his side of the story. He claims his daughter stopped talking to him completely and their relationship went south after the wedding. However, if he hoped that by giving interviews he would encourage Megan Markel to change his mind and reach out to him, he was grossly mistaken.
However, since Archie Harrison was born in May 2019, Thomas Markle has been unusually quiet. Many royal followers began to believe that he was, in fact, turning over a new sheet and choosing not to speak to the tabloids in hopes of restoring his broken relationship with his daughter. This silent streak was interrupted at the end of August when Thomas Markle gave a lengthy interview, killing Megan Markle.
Thomas Markle calls Megan Markel's words "untrue"
In a new interview for the Daily Mail, Thomas Markle claims the negative way he is portrayed in the press bothers him. He maintains that he has had no contact with Megan Markle or Prince Harry since Archie Harrison's birth and is "sick" of being disturbed and excluded from their lives. He also delivered a speech that Megan Markle delivered last year, where she claims to have paid her own way through college. Thomas Markle insists he actually paid her through university and that he has "bank statements to prove it."
Megan Markle's speech she made during a Fiji tour stated that she had undergone college through a combination of financial aid, scholarships and job programs. By the time Markle made her speech, Samantha Markle said that her speech was a lie and that she was only able to attend college because of the generosity of Thomas Markle.
