Meghan Markle’s Brother Is Now Taking Sides in Her Family Drama

Meghan Markle’s Brother Is Now Taking Sides in Her Family Drama”

Thomas Markle, who lives in Mexico, also acknowledged he has had no contact with Harry and Meghan, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, since before their wedding.

In an explosive interview from earlier today (August 12), Thomas Markle confessed that he lied to Prince Harry about collaborating with a photographer to pose for the now-infamous photo shoot, which includes a photo of him being fitted for a wedding suit.

The Duchess of Sussex's father said he was "upset" by Harry's tirade, which came as he recovered in hospital from a heart attack.

The 71-year-old, who pulled out of walking his daughter down the aisle days before her wedding to Prince Harry in May, admitted the criticism was "absolutely right".

Today the Mail On Sunday can reveal details of the remarkable calls that took place between Mr Markle and Prince Harry following the Daily Mail's exposé.

Kensington Palace declined to comment on all the interviews given by the Markles, as well as on reports that it was trying to stop Markle from speaking to the press.

"They say blood is thicker than water, but perhaps the blue blood of the royals now runs through Meg's veins".

It also emerged that he had staged photos with a paparazzi photographer which contributed to the furor around him ahead of the wedding.

"I told her they wouldn't be able to come because they would never be able to afford the flight but that it would be a nice gesture on her part". Mr Markle told his soon-to-be son-in-law that he was simply being "measured for a hoodie". "That it would end in tears", Thomas said of their conversations. "He was right." But, Thomas explains he was "hurt" when Meghan told him he wouldn't be able to make a speech at their wedding.

"I don't expect to see her or hear back from her and that's OK", the British tabloid quoted him as saying.

"I grew up on the set of a TV show called Married with Children, where my dad was the lighting director", Meghan told Best Health. Before she was a small-screen star and long before marrying into the Royal Family, the duo would enjoy a regular daddy-daughter lunch date at the steakhouse, which Prince Harry's wife once revealed on her now-shuttered Instagram.
