Thomas Markle, Meghan’s dad, has said he might come to England and hole up in a hotel room in an attempt to see his daughter, who, he claims, has blanked him following her wedding to Prince Harry.
The new threat is contained in a piece in today’s Sun, the sister paper of the Sun on Sunday, which yesterday ran an extensive interview with Mr. Markle in which he launched a bitter attack on the palace, said his daughter’s vivacious spirit was being crushed by royal life and accused the palace of not returning his calls.
Now, in remarks that appear to have been held back from the main interview, he is threatening to come to the U.K.
He told The Sun: “If I chose in a month, or couple of months, to go to England—I want to see my daughter. I’m thinking about it. I don’t care whether she is pissed off at me or not.”
The British press have shown their willingness to shame and embarrass Meghan at every opportunity, and it is tragic that her father now appears to be enabling them to do so by denouncing her as heartless in return for money.
Increasingly, one would have to argue that rather than blowing an opportunity to bring him fully on board ahead of the wedding, his non-appearance at Windsor Castle back in May might have been Meghan and Harry’s luckiest escape.
“I spoke to Meghan and Harry briefly after the wedding. It was mostly me and Meghan. They were talking about coming to visit me. I spoke to them both and wished them a happy honeymoon. That was the last call.”
He told yesterday’s Sun on Sunday: “I had a heart attack, doesn’t anybody care? I could actually die soon. Does she want this to be the last thing we’ve said to each other?”
Threatening your children with your own death? It doesn’t get much lower than that.
