Will Meghan ditch Harry? Half-brother Thomas Markle Jr seems to thinks so
Thomas Markle Jr has made some serious allegations against his half-sister Meghan, saying that "Money changed" her attitude. He predicted that her marriage to Prince Harry is "next on the chopping board"! The 55-year-old told friends on Australia’s Celebrity Big Brother that the Duchess of Sussex was “cold” to her ex-husband and Harry is next on the list of people she will cut out of her life.
Harry has been married to Meghan Markle since 2018, and it is Meghan's second marriage. Thomas Markle Jr says that he and half-sister Meghan used to be close, but “money changed her” after she moved to Canada for work. Markle Jr told his Celebrity Big Brother Australia housemates: "That's the big thing now, what happened to her? No one can figure it out." He claimed, "Money changed her I guess and fame went to her head really bad."
Thomas Markle Jr is still unable to accept the fact that Meghan is married to a royal family and said he “doesn’t know” how Meghan managed to snag a royal husband. He said that Meghan was “cold” when she sent her ex-husband’s wedding ring back to her in the post. He continued: “Trevor took care of her, she loved him, and she went around and left him. That fast."
"After being married, she sent the ring back in the mail. Is that cold or what? But, you know, Harry's next. Harry's on the chopping board next. The only difference between now and then is in all the photos prior to that, he had a smile on his face. All the ones after, he doesn't," he added.
The 55-year-old said that Meghan was able to get all the privileges she has today and the opportunity to get hitched to a royal because of their dad Thomas Markle Sr paying for her education. Thomas Markle Jr is still unhappy about the fact that he was not invited to Harry and Meghan's wedding in 2018, which took place at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. After being ignored by his half-sister, he wrote an explosive open letter telling Meghan to call off the upcoming nuptials. Speaking about why he wrote the letter, he said it was written in a "moment of madness".
When Meghan was born, Thomas Markle Jr was just 14 years old and he lived with his dad, Thomas Markle Sr, and his stepmother Doria. He says that he wanted to continue the sibling bond with his sister Meghan forever, but things turned sour later on. After the birth of baby Archie, he publicly congratulated his sister and said he was over the moon for her. He hoped with the birth of Archie, all their problems would come to an end and they could rebuild their relationship but this did not happen.
Two years back, it was revealed that Thomas Markle Jr became homeless. In a 2020 interview to an Australian magazine, he had blamed the Duchess of Sussex for his homelessness and unemployment, saying he couldn't find a job because of the 'notoriety' of his last name. However, there could have been other factors. Markle Jr was arrested in Oregon in January 2019 on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, according to a Daily Mail report. A police log obtained by the Mail said he was "visibly intoxicated" when he was pulled over. He was also reportedly arrested in 2017 for holding a gun to a woman's head during a drunken argument.
