Meghan Markle’s dad aimed his anger at his daughter in his latest interview by demeaning her when he said “She’d be nothing without me”. He also dragged the late Princess Diana’s name into his recent public rant, which is a touchy subject for his new son-in-law. This time around Thomas Markle has gone way too far with his condemnation of the Royal Family.
Meghan Markle’s Coattails
Thomas Markle joins his daughter Samantha Markle in riding on Meghan’s coattails seemingly for attention. Their new found fame has been monetarily rewarding to Meghan Markle’s father and her half-sister.
Thomas Markle, the patriarch of the Markle family, has been a sore spot for the Royals since he emerged in the media. The Daily Mail recently interviewed Meghan’s father. It was during this interview when he accused England’s Royal Family of trying to cut him off from his daughter. He also accused Meghan of going along with this.

Prince Harry Very Protective of Princess Diana’s Memory
Prince William and his brother Prince Harry are very protective of their mother’s memory. Back in 1997, Harry was only 12 when Princess Diana’s life ended in a tragic car accident. Both William and Harry are very apprehensive of the media who did nothing but hound their mother until the day she died.
The paparazzi were chasing the car she was riding in the night of her fatal crash. Because the paparazzi were in hot pursuit of the car that night, many people felt they contributed to this fatal accident. Both Prince William and Prince Harry are very leery of the media still today for that reason.
Meghan Markle’s Father Rattling the Royals
Thomas Markle is condemning Harry’s family and dragging Princess Diana into his rants and he is doing this through the media. While the Royal Family has not released a comment on this, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams did.

Princess Diana Would Have ‘Loathed’ His Treatment (according to Meghan Markle’s dad)
He reportedly told the Daily Mail that Princess Diana would have “loathed” the way he is treated by the Royal Family. Markle didn’t know his daughter’s late mother-in-law. Although this didn’t stop him from taking the liberty of dragging her name into his condemning comments about the Royal Family.
He also claims that Meghan is cutting him out of her life. With that said, he also accused the Royal Family of attempting to “silence him.”

Thomas Markle Out for Sympathy?
Meghan’s father told the Daily Mail: “Perhaps it would be easier for Meghan if I died.”
Meghan’s estranged father also said, “I’m really hurt that she’s cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the royal family changing Meghan, they cut me off.”
He continued by saying, “Those numbers were disconnected, they no longer work. I have no way of contacting my daughter.”
“She’d Be Nothing Without Me!” says Megan Markle’s father
The elder Markle waged a verbal attack on Meghan saying, “What riles me is Meghan’s sense of superiority. She’d be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today. Everything that Meghan is, I made her.”
The Royal Family Outraged by Thomas Markle
The royal commentator, Richard Fitzwilliams, said that Thomas Markle should have known that such a “contentious and highly personal interview would be anathema to the Royal Family.” “It is clear,” said Fitzwilliams, “that Thomas Markle’s comments will not endear him to Princess Diana’s sons.”
Meghan Markle has endured mortifying behavior from her father and her half-sister since her engagement was announced. Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, is extremely supportive of her daughter and she stays away from the spotlight. She is the one family member Meghan can always count on.
Meghan Markle’s Half-Sister’s Smear Campaign?
Samatha Markle, who is Meghan’s older half-sister, has been spewing about Meghan any chance she gets. She has just joined the cast of Celebrity Big Brother where she is expected to talk about the Royal Family. She has joined Britain’s version of the show which will take place basically in the Royal Family’s backyard.
The theme of the Celebrity Big Brother show is “scandal”. All the celebrities have all been in the headlines for one scandal or another. It’s Samantha’s estrangement from Meghan that has kept her in the headline news. She manages to pop up again and again with some story or another about her half-sister.

Anger and Pain
Meghan Markle is in a world she knows little about. She’s taken lessons and she’s had personal training on the rules and protocols of the Royal Family. She’s done everything possible to fit into Harry’s world. The one thing she cannot do is pick her relatives. With her father frequently giving mortifying interviews – it has to be embarrassing for the former Suits star. It also must cause her much pain.
Now with his latest spiel of dragging Harry’s deceased mother into his rant, this probably goes beyond anger for Meghan Markle. This will undoubtedly hurt her husband Harry, who is very protective of his mother’s memory. It is not hard to see why Meghan has distanced herself from her father and half-sister. With family members like this… who needs enemies?
