Meghan Markle's dad's at it again! Now he claims his daughter is "terrified" of her new role and is "under too much pressure"
Dad Thomas says he knows his daughter Meghan's smile and the one he sees now seems to be a pained smile and he put that down to facing too much pressure after becoming a royal.
Thomas Markle is having his doubts about how Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex has been adjusting to her new royal life. In an interview with The Sun, Thomas hinted that he believes Meghan is terrified of the new role she has taken on after entering 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,” he continued. Thomas further added that it “might be just having a couple bad days,” but he worries “she’s under too much pressure.”
There’s a high price to pay to be married to that family,” he remarked. However, Thomas admitted that he has not spoken to Meghan since the time she and Prince Harry got married, which was two months ago. “I spoke to Meghan and Harry briefly after the wedding,” he told the publication. Even though Thomas has tried to contact Meghan, it has all been a series of failed attempts as he says that “the phone number I had been calling Meghan on is no longer picking up. And I don’t have an address for her.”
“I sent a text to my palace contact saying I would like to reach my daughter and got no reply,” he continued. “It is probably the longest time I have gone without speaking to her ever.” But if Thomas does get a chance to reconnect with his daughter, there is only one thing he has to say and that is, "I’m sorry for anything that went wrong.”
Ever since Meghan and Harry's wedding had a date, the family drama from the Duchess side of the family was unlike the royal family had ever seen. However, one of the biggest scandals associated with the wedding turned out to be one involving Meghan's dad, Thomas. Thomas was all set to come and walk Meghan down the aisle but then reports started swirling in that suggested Thomas had posed for the pictures suggesting he was trying to learn more about the royal family.
It was later added that Thomas won't be attending the wedding after he had to undergo a heart surgery. Despite reports that Meghan and Harry were set to visit him, Thomas suggests that it has been impossible ever since the scandal came to light. “I have already apologized to the Royal Family,” he said in the interview. “I honestly think that if the Queen took the time to think that she would not see me because I did some stupid photographs, that is ridiculous.”
Thomas further added that he has no interest in carrying out interviews and that this would be his "last interview.” “All I am doing is setting the record straight and reaching out to my daughter,” he added. However, Thomas suggested in another interview that he believes his relationship with Meghan is lost.
