Meghan Markle's dad banned from future royal events after his tell-all TV interview
What has angered the royal family members the most about Thomas' interview with the talk show is how seamlessly he disclosed private conversations that he had with them
Meghan Markle has had a lot of trouble managing her life as a royal with the shadow of her menacing father behind her, but now Thomas Markle has gotten himself into so big a soup that even his daughter cannot help him.
After Thomas decided to give a tell-all interview to Britain's morning show, Good Morning Britain, reports have come in which claim that the Duchess of Sussex's father will no longer be allowed to be a part of royal events for life.
The royal family felt completely blindsided by his surprising interview, and they do not want Thomas to be a part of their family life anymore.
“The palace was given no heads up on Thomas’ interview,” the source told Radar Online.
“Meghan’s father has now made it impossible to ever again be invited to any royal events. Thomas can’t be trusted to not sell stories to the media and he will get absolutely no access,” the source added.
According to the insider, who claims to have an in-depth knowledge of royal protocols followed by the British Royal family, the Queen “would have been woken up the morning of and briefed about Thomas’ interview. She is an understanding woman and probably wouldn’t but would feel terrible for Meghan. It’s a sad state of affairs.”
Even Angela Levin, who wrote the biography on Prince Harry told Express that she thinks that the Queen will be very angry at the bold step taken by the new Duchess' father. She said, “I think the Queen will be very angry. She is absolutely the model of the stiff upper lip and not saying anything that is too political.”
She added, “I think Harry will be very cross but I think he will put all his energy into caring for her. He is a very caring man with those he likes and loves and I think he will realize how upset she has been by this. The betrayal is really.”
What has angered the royal family members the most about Thomas' interview with the talk show is how seamlessly he disclosed private conversations that he had with them, including his talks with his son-in-law, Prince Harry.
The 73-year-old spoke to famous British journalist Piers Morgan on the show where he talked quite a lot about the newly minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex. “Well, of course, it’s ‘wow’, it comes out as a ‘wow’ but you know this is my daughter. My daughter’s certainly, certainly a prize for him as well,” said Thomas.
“Yeah he (Prince Harry) is great, he’s an interesting guy, he’s a prince, but my daughter’s been a princess since the day she was born,” he sweetly added.
What's even more problematic and unacceptable for the palace members is the time Thomas revealed that although he has not met the Duke of Sussex yet, the two have shared some very interesting phone conversations together, the contents of which he shared during the interview.
“We talked a few times about Donald Trump and Brexit, things like that, and he’s an interesting guy,” Thomas continued.
“I was complaining I didn’t like Donald Trump, he said ‘give Donald Trump a chance.’ I sort of disagreed with that, but I still like Harry. That was his politics, I have my politics.” Thomas also touched on Harry’s views about Brexit, saying the Prince seemed “open to the experiment.”
According to the Radar source, “The palace keeps reaching out to Meghan's dad offering help and guidance and Thomas keeps saying no thanks. The palace doesn’t know what to do with this man – they can’t have Harry reach out to him anymore because they worry Thomas will tell the press all about it."
And the whole ordeal must be even harder for Meghan, especially seeing her dad meted out such a treatment from her own family members, even if her father's actions are in no way justified. “Meghan will be distraught. She is trying so hard and her dad keeps opening his mouth” the insider added.
