Meghan Markle has been the subject of intense scrutiny since the moment her relationship with Prince Harry became public information. The couple's decision to step down from the royal family stirred up a whole new wave of criticism. Meghan's estranged father apparently has a lot to say about his daughter's choices. The media has largely ignored Thomas Markle since the royal wedding in May of 2018. TMZ caught up with him in Mexico and asked him what he thought about Megxit.

When asked about his daughter, Thomas had this to say: “I’m very upset with Meghan and Harry right now. I don’t think they have the right to use the word ‘royal.’ I don’t think they have the right to speak to the Queen the way they’ve been talking to her. I think it’s an insult to the Queen, and to the British people. My daughter dumped me one day before she got married. She dumped by family. She dumped Doria’s family. She’s dumped every family member, and now she’s dumping the British Royal Family. Have a good day.”

Confusion Over Use Of "Royal"

It's unclear of Thomas Markle has seen or understood the statement recently made by his daughter and her new husband. Harry and Meghan addressed their future branding plans in a statement released on their website. They made it clear that although they could continue to use the "Sussex Royal" brand outside of the UK they chose not to. This distinction seems to imply that they mean to honor the queen and her wishes even though they legally have the right to do otherwise.

In his statement, Thomas brings up that his daughter "dumped him" before her royal wedding to Prince Harry. Officially Thomas did not attend his daughter's wedding due to recent heart surgery. Ms. Markle released a statement via Twitter that she hoped her father would be given the space he needs to recover. It was later discussed that Thomas had sold photos of himself preparing for the wedding to the paparazzi which he later said he regretted. He called his actions "hammy".

Meghan's relationship with her father had been on the rocks. Thomas has allegedly not seen his daughter since before she married Prince Harry. It's rumored he has not met his grandson little Archie either. Even though Thomas expressed regret for selling photos to the paparazzi before the royal wedding he's since changed his demeanor. Recently Thomas has said he'll continue to cash in on his daughter's status and the media attention surrounding her. This stance certainly isn't healing the rift.

They've confidently moved forward to do what is right for their family. Neither Meghan nor Harry have paid much attention to their critics' opinions of their choices. The pair will be moving forward with their plans to spend more time in North America and live a more private life with Archie.
