DADDY COOL: Thomas Markle set to become fashion icon as he gets set to launch his own clothing line!
Amid the ongoing controversies, Samantha Markle took to Twitter to announce her dad's latest venture in the world of fashion.
We all know that Meghan Markle is a style icon, with every sartorial move of the Duchess of Sussex being scrutinized right down to her choice of innerwear. However, we cannot say the same for her father, Thomas Markle, and no wonder it came as a surprise when it was reported that he may be spreading his wing into the fasion industry. As it turns out, Meghan's father is set to launch his own menswear, a claim which was made by his less famous daughter, Samantha Markle, in her latest tweet. "So excited about my father's new #clothing line for men! Will keep you posted!" read the tweet. However, many people believe that Samantha's recent tweet about the clothing line is yet another effort of the family to draw attention to itself, something they have been doing with regularity ever since Meghan hitched into the British royal family.
"Meghan's father launching clothes line. The scam is his clothes going to have a label that says '100% made from money I made belittling my daughter in the media!' Wash with care made of 100% green vile that came from Sam's mouth," wrote one user.
While another added, "#SamanthaMarkle what makes you think that even guys with #Dadbods want to dress like #ThomasMarkle."
This seems to be another example of the Markles trying to cash in on their association with Meghan, something which Samantha has admitted many times, saying "we all have to survive".
"Let's face it, we all have to survive. Money makes the world go round, so if you want to call that cashing in, that's fine, but I think no one in media would refuse a paycheck for talking about the royal and, as a family, we're not subject to royal protocol," she said, as reported by Daily Mail.
She further added, "With all due respect, it's not just Meghan. We're entitled to share that. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. It's not disparaging. It's not harmful." As the drama between the Markles continues, eagle-eyed royal fans were quick to notice that Thomas was missing from his daughter's 2011 wedding to her first husband, Trevor Engleson. While Doria Ragland was pictured with her daughter, there was no sign of him.
Meanwhile, a source close to Meghan said that she would be willing to talk to her father if he reached out to her in a respectful manner. "The only reason Meghan hasn't spoken to her father yet is that she's yet to hear from him in a respectful manner," the source told Daily Mail. "Thomas is speaking to the press more than he's reached out and spoken to his own daughter. Despite Thomas' claim that he has no way to reach Meghan, he knows that her mother Doria is in touch with her and Thomas knows how to reach Doria. If Thomas truly wanted to speak with Meghan, he could easily have sent a letter to her mother and asked her to pass it along."
The friend added, "Unfortunately that wouldn't sell papers or fit into his fabricated and salacious narrative." Meghan and Thomas have had a fallout ever since it was reported that he staged the paparazzi pictures. He was unable to attend her wedding as he had to undergo a surgery.
