Thomas Markle says he is enjoying the fact that he can make entire royal family not speak
Thomas Markle seems to have had a change of heart as he is ready to talk to the press again in a bid to get a response from his daughter, Meghan Markle and rest of the royal family. “I was silent for a full year and the press beat me up every day saying I was a hermit hiding in Mexico, so I gave my story,” he said. “Apparently that interview put the royal family in their silence mode … so, I gave another interview to break the silence. All they have to do is speak to me.”
Just two days after Thomas told The Sun that it was going to be his last interview, he spoke to TMZ when they asked for his response over the news that Meghan and Prince Harry were unhappy that he had gone to the press again for money. However, it does not look like anything can stop Thomas from speaking anymore.
This comes after he told the tabloid that he is planning to fly to London to meet Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. "If I chose in a month, or a couple of months, to go to England — I want to see my daughter. I’m thinking about it,” he said. “I don’t care whether she is p---- off at me or not," he added. Thomas hinted that he might have planned how he will take things forward and it does not include any big gestures.
Thomas said he plans on booking a hotel room and will try to contact Meghan. “It’s sad that it’s got to this point. I’m sorry it’s come to this. Yes, some of it is my fault. But I’ve already made it clear that I’m paying for this for the rest of my life,” he said. He also pleaded his daughter to pick up his call as he suggested that the two have not spoken to each other ever since she got married to Prince Harry on May 19, nearly two months have passed since then.
"It is probably the longest time I have gone without speaking to her ever,” he said. "I just want to clear the air and tell her how proud I am of her." Even though Thomas previously called the royal family "outdated", Thomas said that he would love to meet Queen Elizabeth. “If she’ll meet Donald Trump, why not me?” he questioned. “I’d like to be treated by the royal family like Meghan’s father,” he continued. “I should be regarded with the respect of any other father of the bride. This comes after Thomas said that he believes Meghan is terrified of her new role in the royal family.
My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified. I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile,” he said. “I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now. This one isn’t even a stage smile — this is a pained smile."
