The relationship between Meghan Markle and her father remains tense. While Thomas Markle has not heard from his daughter since his marriage to Prince Harry, he believes the Duchess would be happier if he died.
A few days before Meghan Markle’s birthday, his father said he was voluntarily sidelined by the royal family.
“It’s his birthday on August 4, and I want to send him a card. But if I send a birthday card to Kensington Palace or wherever she lives now, she will be lost among thousands of others. She will never see her. The Palace will surely plunge it into the water to make sure it will not explode, “said Markle in an interview with Mail On Sunday.
He fears that his daughter will never let him see his future grandchildren: “My body is not what it used to be. I’m lucky to still be alive. The men in my family rarely live more than 80 years, so I would be surprised to live another ten years. I could die tomorrow. It would not be so bad. I have a rather Buddhist approach to death. It might be easier for Meghan if I died. “
“What annoys me is that Meghan thinks herself superior. She would be nothing without me. I made her the duchess she is today. All she is, it is to me that she must. “
According to the former director of photography, Princess Diana would not have allowed her father to be treated with such contempt.
“The royal family makes Meghan treat her father in a way that Princess Diana would have hated. Princess Diana is credited with transforming the royal family, but she was not perfect. It was still in many ways one of them. “
These words could make Prince Harry angry, but Thomas Markle does not care.
“That Harry never talks to me again, I do not care. I will Survive. “
Meghan Markle has not spoken publicly about her father since the day before her wedding.
“Unfortunately, my father will not attend our wedding. I have always taken care of my dad and I hope he can get the space he needs to focus on his health, “said Meghan in a statement from Kensington Palace.
