When marriages occur, both families from the husband and wife usually come together to support the newlyweds. But the opposite has happened for the formerly known Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle. Ever since the couple tied the knot in 2018 which was a glorious moment for many people in attendance, the British media and many people connected to the Highness have made it known they disapprove of the [couple]. Now Meghan’s father, half brother, and sister have joined in on the bashing.
Meghan and Prince Harry have received backlash for their relationship since it became public in 2016. The relationship started with a blind date set up between two mutual friends they shared and it blossomed from there. Months into the relationship Meghan had to deal with sexist and racist abuse from different media outlets in England. Prince Harry quickly came to her defense “Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her,” the statement read. “It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm. He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game.’
Harry and Markle then decided it would be best to move out of England and step down from their royal duties. There were also reports within England that both the brothers( Harry and William) were [feuding] about Harry’s decision, it was also reported that Kate Middleton and Markle were not getting along. This, plus the Queen making her displeasures known lead to the Harry family moving to Canada as of this article. But the family wasn’t out the clear just yet.
During this time it was well-document that Meghan’s relationship with her siblings was very much strained and they weren’t close at all. With both siblings saying Markle is a big reason for their father’s bankruptcy and said Markle betrayed her family over the years. It all started with Markle’s father staging paparazzi pics to recast his image in a more positive light. But that backfired as other and eventually, himself exposed this scheme. Then Markle half-sister Samantha did an interview bashing Meghan while also trying to promote her book about Meghan. Markle also made states during the same interview stating that Meghan was a brat and is the reason for our father’s downfall.
Meghan’s father has also not helped nor stop the bashing of his daughter but has added to it. In an interview done with TMZ, Thomas stated that “I don’t think they have the right to use the word royal,” Thomas told the outlet, adding, “I don’t think they have the right to speak to the Queen the way they’ve spoken to her.” He continued”I think it’s an insult to the Queen and the British people. My daughter dumped me one day before she got married. She dumped my family. She’s dumped Doria’s family. She’s dumped every family. And now she’s dumping the British family.” Markle’s father’s attack on her has broken her heart as it would for most daughters. Hopefully, the tirade and trend of attacking Meghan will stop soon.
