An agonising future for Meghan Markle following new reports from royal insiders
News out of the Royal Family is bleak this morning with royal biographers and experts revealing Meghan Markle is simply putting on a brave face.
Constantly harassed by members of her own - albeit estranged - family have forced the Duchess of Sussex to live in constant fear her relatives will say something destructive about her, a royal biographer tells news.com.au
In fact, the situation has gotten so bad that palace aides have reportedly had three top-level crisis meetings about how to deal with her family, particularly her father.
In his latest tirade, Thomas Markle Snr claimed Meghan changed her phone number and was sending him “mixed messages” - although we believe changing your number is a pretty clear one - and dismissed the royals as a “Monty Python sketch” before accusing Meghan of having a “sense of superiority”.
Rounding off his flurry of rude and out-of-touch statements, the 74-year-old then suggested it would be better for Meghan if he died, and that Princess Diana would be disgusted with how he was being treated.
Which, no mate.
Meghan, who celebrates her 37th birthday on Saturday - Happy Bday gal! - is said to have been left "amazed" by her father's latest round of interviews.
Despite his harsh words for Harry - "I don't care if Harry never speaks to me again, I'll survive" - Thomas also revealed he would be "heartbroken" if Meghan never spoke to him again.
Which is honestly a head scratcher 'cause he sure seems like he's doing everything in his power to ensure that happens.
Royal commentator Angela Levin, author of new Prince Harry biography Harry: Conversations With The Prince, told news.com.au Meghan would be putting on a brave front, but would be troubled by her father’s behaviour:
“It must be desperately upsetting to Meghan, who I think is a very good actor at putting on a good face, but she must be very hurt.
“She was very close to her father and she did want him to walk her down the aisle. For him to do that has made her speechless psychologically and physically — she can’t say anything to him now.”
Finally, a source close to the royal couple have reportedly also told Daily Mail:
"A reconciliation is completely off the table at the moment."
"There's no chance right now - he's been a complete embarrassment. They've had problems for some time – from before she met Prince Harry. She's amazed by what's happened but is taking what he says with a grain of salt."
"The Royal Family isn't as upset as you'd think either. Nothing any of them [the Markle family] say has any real consequence and they [Meghan and Harry] have more important things to focus on."
The news comes after a spat between Chrissy Teigan and Meghan Markle's half sister Samantha after Chrissy tweeted, “This guy… this guy sucks. “What is wrong with him? Let your daughter be happy, please. This is embarrassing" about Thomas Markle.
