Matthew Steeples suggests Thomas Markle is right to call out his daughter’s antics for what they are: Ridiculous
‘MeGain’ (AKA The Duchess of Sussex) is allegedly jetting off to shores distant. Whilst many will be relieved that she could possibly be going to Africa or back to her native United States, one person who is rightly cross with her is her own dad.
In comments to the Mail on Sunday, Thomas Markle remarked:
“I’m sick of the lies. I’m sick of being vilified and shut out of their lives. I have to stand up for myself. I’m going to carry on speaking and I’m not going to shut up.”
“No father deserves this kind of abuse when he’s been that good to his daughter. Ask anyone who knows us both. I’ve been very kind and generous to my daughter.”
“I’ve still never met my son-in-law. Why couldn’t Prince Harry have got on a plane and flown to see me to ask for her hand? He obviously has no problem getting on private jets.”
“If he wants to come and see me on a private jet, there’s an airport near here in Tijuana, and San Diego is just over the border. There are dozens of commercial flights from England to San Diego and Los Angeles every day.”
Going further, of the criticism his daughter and Prince Harry have attracted he added:
“I feel sorry for them in a way because they brought this on themselves. You can’t say one thing and do another. You can’t portray yourself as being charitable and bringing people together and then ghost your own father and your entire family. Their treatment of me has left a lot to be desired… I’m speaking out now because they and their PR people are continuing to ghost me out of her life.”
Mr Markle sums the situation created by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex perfectly. This pair of hypocrites can’t have it both ways. They either need to develop a better strategy for dealing with those closest to them, the public in general and the media also or they need to do what most of us would prefer – Bog off to a place where they can live privately.
