Meghan Markle's dad Thomas compares royal family to Scientologists and the Stepford family because of their 'cult-like' secrecy
After saying that he is "done" with the royal family, Thomas Markle, in a recent interview, says that the royal family is "like Scientologists or the Stepford Family"
The Markles vs the Royal family is still on as Meghan Markle’s father is continuing to speak out against the royal fam.
In his latest interview with The Sun, 74-year-old Thomas Markle described the family his daughter is married into as being “cult-like.” “They are either like Scientologists or the Stepford family,” the retired television lighting director said in the interview, which was published on Friday.
“If they hear anybody say anything they just lock the doors. They need to speak up!” he added, presumably referencing an earlier claim he made that the royal family had been “in silence mode” since he began giving interviews to media outlets.
“They are cult-like — like Scientology — because they are secretive,” he remarked. “They close the door, pull the shades down and put their fingers in their ears so they don’t have to hear."
“Maybe they have a secret handshake too! You cannot ask a question of them — as they won’t answer,” Thomas continued.
Earlier this month, Thomas also revealed that while he was “done” with the rest of his daughter Meghan’s new family and added that he was “not mad” her or Prince Harry. “I’m not mad at Harry. I’m not mad at Meghan. I love them. I wish them well,” Thomas said during an interview with The Mail on Sunday. “But as for the rest of it, f*** it. I’m done.”
During the interview, he also revealed that he actually hung up on Harry while talking about staged paparazzi photos ahead of his daughter’s royal wedding. “Harry told me that I should never go to the press. That it would end in tears. He said, ‘They will eat you alive,’ ” he said during an interview with The Mail on Sunday. “He was right.”
Looking back, Thomas said he realizes that Harry was “absolutely right” that staging the photos was a bad idea. However, he explained he was still “hurt” when Meghan told him he wouldn’t be able to make a speech at their wedding. (At the last minute, Thomas did not attend the royal wedding due to health complications.)
