Meghan Markle’s family drama has been well documented, especially since the former Suits star married Prince Harry in May 2018. And according to a new report, it’s extremely unlikely that Meghan will be reconciling with her dad, Thomas Markle, anytime soon.
From participating in a series of staged paparazzi photos, to selling multiple interviews to tabloids in the lead up to, and directly following, his daughter’s royal wedding, Thomas Markle has not done much to ingratiate himself with the royal family.
According to 9Honey‘s royal commentator Victoria Arbiter, Meghan is now keeping her distance from her father. Arbiter reveals, “Some of what he’s said has been emotionally abusive,” making any possible reconciliation all the more unlikely.
Arbiter continues, “It’s been threatening, it’s been cold, and it’s been embarrassing and humiliating—sort of every negative connotation you can think of—he’s hit the nail on the head.”
To make matters worse, royal correspondent Arbiter claims that some of the details Thomas has been spilling in interviews aren’t exactly true. According to the expert, Meghan’s father “was offered help time and time again,” contradicting his own claims that the royal family never offered him enough support to get to the royal wedding. This is simply untrue according to Arbiter who says that a “member of staff was even sent to Mexico to collect him to bring him to the airport.”
As for whether or not Meghan will be making a trip to see her dad, the royal expert thinks sadly not, especially as the media “cycle is just going to continue,” as the Duchess’ family have seemingly refused to stop speaking to the press.
