Meghan Markle has a lot on her plate. She married into one of the most public and famous families in the entire world. She has become a royal, and therefore everything she does is made public, as well as the actions of her family. Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, created a media frenzy days before the royal wedding, when it was revealed that he staged paparazzi photos to make himself look more likable in the eyes of the press.
A day later, US Weekly reported Samantha Markle, Meghan’s half- sister, took responsibility for the photo scandal. She said that it was her idea to have her father stage the photos because the media was constantly making him look bad. She suggested to him to pose for positive photos to create a more favorable view of him.
A close source says that, “Meghan is disappointed that her father hasn’t spoken up and stopped his children from trashing her in the press. Instead, she sees his collaboration with Samantha, who Meghan feels he is much closer to, and it hurts her.”
On May 4, it was revealed by Prince Harry’s communications secretary that he still has not met Meghan’s father. Thomas was scheduled to walk Meghan down the aisle at the royal wedding, but he ended up not attending the wedding at all. It was reported that Markle’s father suffered a heart attack in the days leading up to the ceremony.
On her wedding day, Meghan walked down the greater part of the aisle alone and met Prince Charles, her future father-in-law, halfway to the altar. Meghan has consistently been a picture of elegance and grace, and deserves to be happy in her marriage. Read more about this story on US Weekly here.
