When Meghan Markle accepted the marriage proposal of Prince Harry she knew that joining the royal family with its inevitable consequences would be a pitfalls ,
There were catty stories of her former best friend Ninaki Priddy as well as an easy-to-forget ex-boyfriend. And her half-sister Samantha Markle like a moth to a flame, seized the opportunity to add to her 2 pence (and does not seem to have since stopped ̵
Thomas Markle decided to make his own pap photos so that he could " A few days before the royal wedding, the packs were swallowed and Meghan still pleaded with her father to walk her down the hallway (he later declined the invitation after suffering a heart attack
The naivety that led to Thomas made such a half-baked deal with the press at that time was forgivable.Here was a man who had decided to retire to a small coastal town in Mexico to lead a quiet life away from the limelight.It was inevitable that attention The media that accompanied his daughter into Windsor's house would be overwhelming, so while it was an embarrassing mistake, no lasting damage was done.
MEGA  How wrong we were. Two months after this fairytale wedding, all the apologies that painted the former Lighting Director as a helpless victim of the media collapse are now out the window as he continues to seek the limelight that goes hand in hand with the father of a new Duchess.
Rather, as he worked to improve his relationship with his daughter privately, he appears content to mock Meghan over interviews with the media. Judging by his inability to shut up, one would think he enjoys having his name in the headlines.
"If I go to England in a month or a few months, I want to see my daughter, I think about it," said Thomas The Sun earlier this month. "I do not care if she's mad at me or not … I'm not going to wave flags and make a fool of myself … I would find a hotel room and try to reach her."
Something is not quite calculated.
If recent history is something, he will also take the paparazzi on a journey. (Not that they're not over him, no matter.)
But this weekend, Thomas's attacks hit a new low. In an explosive interview with the Mail On Sunday that took place over an exhausting nine hours in three days, Thomas says his daughter is "nothing without me, I made her the Duchess she is today." All that Meghan is, me made them. "
Is it possible that this 74-year-old man is jealous of his own daughter?
He continued, "She treated Meghan to her father in a way that would have detested Harry's mother, Princess Diana . That's not what Diana stands for. "
It's not just disgusting to scold Princess Diana – she's leaving Meghan with a heartbreaking mystery. Dare to bring Harry's mother into conversation means that even if Meghan forgives her father, Thomas's chances of ever having a relationship with Prince Harry are almost impossible (probably he will have the same bond Prince William ] shares with his in-laws, the Middletons, little more than a pipe dream). Which couple does not know how difficult it can be when there is a difficult relationship with the parents-in-law?
But Thomas himself also said of Mail on Sunday : "I do not care if Harry never speaks to me again, I'll survive."
His insistence on baiting the royal family ("Who cares about a dusty old crown these days?"), While also passing on candid details of private telephone conversations between him and his new son-in-law, have only signaled that he is untrustworthy. As more contact with the royal family would only make him talk to the press, this could explain why Meghan and Harry allegedly avoided his phone calls since watching this television interview Good Morning Britain in June. When referring to the silence since his last conversation with his daughter, he says, "I could actually die soon, does she want this to be the last thing we said to each other?"
claims Thomas's motivation to talk so much is a relationship with his daughter, but considering he's out for emotional blackmail, he seems to be hellishly out to any chance of reconciliation to destroy.
"The unfortunate thing for me now," he said at GMB "that I'm a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history, rather than the dad's walking her down the aisle me something. "
Whether he is upset because he could not fulfill his daughter's request or because he was not the center of attention remains to be seen, but his continued public harassment of his daughter ensures he is more than just a footnote in Meghan's story.
Harry got warm last Christmas for saying so by joining the royal family. After all, Meghan had won the family she never had. Unfortunately, as the world now recognizes, he was pretty much right.
Unfortunately, this nightmare still does not seem to be over Meghan. "I tell you, I've just reached my limit for Meghan and the royal family," exclaimed Thomas on Mail on Sunday . "I want to unload it."
"They want me to be quiet, they want me to just go away, but I'm not silenced," he insists. "I refuse to stay silent."
