Palace Insider Dishes on How the Royals Really Feel About Meghan Markle's Dad

Meghan Markle Prince Harry Queen Elizabeth

The royal family has never really been able to escape drama, but now it's coming from one source in particular: Thomas Markle. Ever since the royal wedding (and even before then as well), Meghan Markle's dad has been stirring up all sorts of trouble for the royals, and according to palace sources, they've had enough. 

  • A palace insider told Us Weekly that the entire royal family is "frustrated" with Thomas Markle and his willingness to talk to the press.

    Or shall we say his continual habit of talking to the press. The insider added "Meghan hasn't spoken to Thomas since the day after the wedding." 

    Ouch. We know Meghan is busy with her new royal duties, but even a duchess has time in the day to give her own dad a ring on the phone.

  • Perhaps Meghan's reluctance to speak to her father comes from the interview he gave on Good Morning Britain weeks ago.

    Plus he criticized Queen Elizabeth for meeting President Trump before meeting him. He just won't stop. A source close to Thomas Markle told Us Weekly, “Thomas adores his daughter and swears he never wanted attention from the interviews. He wants the royals to stand by his side, but of course so far they haven’t.”

    Well, given that all he's done since the wedding is put down the royal family, we can see why they'd be reluctant to become buds with him. 

  • And to make matters worse, all of the drama surrounding Thomas could possible affect his relationship with his new son-in-law, Prince Harry.

    Another source stated that Thomas's actions will definitely have an effect on whether or not he has any access at all to Harry

    Doesn't sound like a great way to start a union of two family to us. 

  • Sounds to us like Thomas Markle is digging himself a hole that he won't be able to get out of. 

    He's done nothing but put himself and the royals in headlines for negative reasons, and a family that needs to constantly keep their image clean isn't going to look too kindly on that. 

    And we just hope that Meghan isn't too stressed out about all of the drama surrounding her dad. She has a enough to worry about as it is!
