Thomas Markle claims Meghan Markle demanded he 'stop talking' to his other children
Thomas Markle revealed that the duchess asked him to stop being in touch with Samantha and Thomas Markle Jr
Meghan Markle's estranged father Thomas Markle is not too happy about not being able to meet his other two kids. In an exclusive interview with GB News UK, he stated that his daughter allegedly asked him to stop being in touch with his other two kids - Samantha, 56, and Thomas Markle Jr, 55. Both of them are the children of Thomas Markle’s first marriage to Roslyn Loveless. Meghan is his daughter with Doria Ragland.
During the interview, he claimed that he “loved all his children” and despite repeated requests from the Duchess of Sussex, he refused to cut ties with them.
Thomas Markle told GB News UK, “Meghan wanted me to stop talking to both my older children, and I can’t do that…….They’re my children, I love all my children….. Even when they’re not performing well and even when they’re bad, I still love them….. Meghan wasn’t making any effort to reach out and try to be friendly….”
While talking about Meghan, Thomas also clarified that “she had a relationship with both Tom and Samantha…..She can’t deny it, there are photographs of it, you can see the photographs of it…….You can see them together…… They drifted apart when Meghan turned 10 or 11 because they left and went to other states and got jobs…… They drifted apart then but there was no hostility at that point.”
Meghan got estranged from Thomas just before her wedding to Prince Harry when he was reported to have staged photographs for the paparazzi. Her relationships with her step siblings hasn't been good too as they have both given hostile interviews before and after the wedding.
Earlier this year, Thomas claimed in an interview with Good Morning Britain that he was concerned about not being able to meet his grandchildren. He even said that lawyers had told him to move the court to get access to his grandchildren - two-year-old son Archie and four-month-old Lilibet.
He also said that Meghan's refusal to talk to him was 'childish' and that he'd continue to talk about her in the media till she finally agrees to talk to him. He shared that the last time Meghan tried reaching out to him was about a month back.
However, he also clarified that he did not wish to make the kids 'pawns in the game'. He said that “I would be a hypocrite if I would do that" as Harry and Meghan were doing the 'same thing.'
In that interview too he claimed that Meghan asked him to stop talking to her stepbrother and stepsister, something she had never done earlier. He marked Meghan's request as 'ridiculous' and suggested that Meghan was encouraged to visit him in Mexico and it’s high time for her to 'grow up', discuss the issue and sort it out for the sake of all of them.
