Thomas Markle slams Meghan and Harry for 'insulting' Queen over royal brand row: 'She's dumped every family'
Thomas's outburst was aimed at daughter Meghan after she and Harry were forced to confirm that they would not be using the word 'royal' after quitting the royal family on March 31
Thomas Markle has slammed his daughter Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry and says they have "no right to speak to the Queen that way" post the couple lashing out over Sussex Royal branding.
Thomas's outburst was aimed at daughter Meghan after she and Harry were forced to confirm that they would not be using the word 'royal' after quitting the royal family on March 31. While speaking to TMZ, Thomas shared, "I'm very upset with Harry and Meghan right now."
"[They] don't have a right to speak to the Queen the way they've spoken to her. I think it's an insult to the Queen and to the British people," he added. Thomas has been very vocal about his views on Meghan and Harry ever since the couple got married in 2018.
He shared that Meghan had "dumped me one day before she got married. She's dumped my family. She's dumped Doria's family. She's dumped every family and now she's dumping the British family."
His latest speech comes after he had warned that he will go on cashing in on 'Megxit' as he begged Meghan to reach out to him.
A major row erupted last week when the pair were forced to give up their Sussex Royal brand and the Queen had hired top lawyers to ban it. Friends of the couple said that Meghan believed that there was no legal comeback for the Queen should they continue to use the term post March 31.
Eventually, Meghan and Harry released a statement on their website confirming that they would not be using the word 'royal'. We had previously reported that the couple also shared an 'update' on their personal website where they claimed that the Queen had no 'jurisdiction' over the word 'royal' and had said that the monarch and government could not prevent them from using the word while abroad.
The statement also seemingly referred to other royals including Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. They claimed that they had been treated differently from the other members of the royal family and went on to remind people that Harry remains sixth in line to the throne and an HRH by birth.
