Meghan Markle’s father Thomas attacks Duchess – ‘I MADE her who she is today’ | Royal | News (Details)



The former Hollywood lighting director also unleashed his fury against the Royal Family as he accused them of influencing her decision to freeze him out.

Thomas Markle Snr, 74, declared he “just about reached the limit” with the Windsors and the Duchess of Sussex’ “superiority” in a bombshell interview released from his home in Rosarito, Mexico, more than 5,000 miles away from Buckingham Palace.

Claiming he, as a father, should be shown more respect as he has given Meghan anything he could, Mr Markle told the Mail On Sunday: “She’d be nothing without me.

“I made her the Duchess she is today.

“Everything that Meghan is, I made her.”

And in a clear attack against his own daughter who, he said, refuses to speak to him, he added: “What riles me is Meghan’s sense of superiority.”

Arguing the British royals are attempting to silencing him, Mr Markle continued: “I tell you, I’ve just about reached my limit with Meghan and the Royal family.

“They want me to be silent, they want me to just go away.

“But I won’t be silenced.

“I refuse to stay quiet.” 

Mr Markle is said to have soured relations with the Royal Family when he staged paparazzi pictures ahead of Meghan and Harry’s wedding on May 19.

And he further worsened them when he broke with protocol as revealed private conversation with Prince Harry during a broadcast interview.

In an interview with ITV Good Morning Britain’s host Piers Morgan, he claimed the royal told him he is “open to the experiment of Brexit” and believes Donald Trump should be “given a chance”.

But despite these fractures with Buckingham Palace, Mr Markle demands Meghan shows him some gratitude.

Speaking bitterly about the better relations the Duchess has with her mother Doria Ragland, he said: “Oh, she’s a mummy’s girl now, and Doria gets a lot of the credit. 

“But Meghan seems to have forgotten that she lived with me up until Doria and I divorced, when she was six, and even then I was still a big part of her life.

“When Meghan was 11, she moved back in with me up until she was 17 and went to college.

“I was having my good years then, making good money, and could afford to give her the best, with a good school good education, good home.

“She became the woman that she is today thanks to everything I did for her. 

“And did I get any recognition for it?

“Any thanks?

“She doesn’t even speak to me now. How cold is that?”

Kensington Palace told it would not comment on Mr Markle’s remarks.
