Following his remarks about his daughter not looking happy last week, Duchess of Sussex’s father Thomas Markle has spoken to the media yet again. This time, the 71-year-old says his telephone line to his daughter has cut been cut off and is unable to contact her.
“I’m really hurt that she’s cut me off completely,” he told The Mail on Sunday. “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.”
Mr Markle also talked about his desire to send Ms Markle a card for her birthday on August 4. Although, given he can’t get through to her, he doubts she’d ever actually receive it. “I thought about sending it by Priority Mail Express, but the Palace would probably just soak it in water for three days to make sure it doesn’t explode,” he said.
Like most of Markle’s family, Mr Markle can’t seem to refrain from speaking to the press. It is unclear whether he is being paid for his comments. While we felt great sadness or the man in his first interview with media where he expressed how upset he was that he couldn’t walk his daughter down the aisle and couldn’t be a part of history, Mr Markle’s continued comments to the press is not sitting well with the palace. Mr Markle went on to remark his sadness at the possibility of never meeting future children.
“What’s sad is that some time in the next year Meghan and Harry will have a baby and I’ll be a grandfather,” he said. “And if we’re not speaking, I won’t see my grandchild. How tragic is that—to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the Royal Family?”
“They want me to be silent, they want me to just go away. But I won’t be silenced. I refuse to stay quiet,” he continued. “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.”
Model Chrissy Teigen has made her thoughts known. “This guy … this guy sucks,” she tweeted. “What is wrong with him? Let your daughter be happy, please. This is embarrassing.”
More to come, we’re (sadly) sure of it.
