'The Talk': Piers Morgan reveals that he sympathizes with Meghan Markle's father Thomas
When people are busy blaming the father and justifying his daughter's decision him away, Piers Morgan seems to have taken the path to greatness
While Meghan Markle's father Thomas Markle is being pilloried by many for his indiscretion in talking about the British royal family after his daughter wed Prince Harry, there are quite a few people who are being sympathetic to him. During his appearance at 'The Talk', TV personality Piers Morgan expressed his sympathy for Thomas Markle, saying he felt sorry for him and that Meghan should "get on a plane and see her dad." The Good Morning Britain host said, "I felt sorry for the guy. He’s lost her. He doesn’t know how to handle the attention that he’s getting, doesn’t know how to handle the media and I’m sorry...Meghan needs to get on a plane and see her dad.”
Host Sharon Osbourne too said that she felt for him. "I felt really bad because you said he’s definitely not an alcoholic... and I felt bad for that, but I think Meghan’s got to do what Meghan wants to do.” However, Morgan disapproved the thought and went on to explain, "Her life is fantastic. This guy’s life looks to me like it’s in meltdown...I blame Harry too! He’s never met his father-in-law.”
One of Meghan's friend had earlier told Daily Mail that the 74-year-old should give up on his hope of reconciling with his daughter. "A reconciliation is completely off the table at the moment...There's no chance right now - he's been a complete embarrassment. They've had problems for some time – from before she met Prince Harry.
A source close to Meghan also confirmed that there are little chances of the reconciliation. The source said, "She's amazed by what's happened but is taking what he says with a grain of salt...The Royal Family isn't as upset as you'd think either. Nothing any of them [the Markle family] say has any real consequence and they [Meghan and Harry] have more important things to focus on."
Thomas Markle's recent public outbursts about how the royals and his own daughter have treated him, has caused a disturbance in the royal household. The royal aides reportedly held three crisis meeting in order to come to a solution on how they can stop him (Thomas) from speaking about the royal family members.
In his most recent interview, Thomas noted that Meghan is "terrified" of her new role as a royal family member and also added that Princess Diana would have “loathed” the way he is being treated by the rest of the family.
