Like he usually does, Thomas markle does not waste an opportunity to criticize his daughter Duchess. In an interview with the Sun, July 27, 2020, Meghan Markle’s father commented on the release of the famous biography on the Sussexes, to be released on August 11. The first extracts recently unveiled by the Sunday Times evoke in particular the multiple attempts of the Duchess to join her father until the day before her marriage in Windsor, in May 2018. Since he missed this royal wedding, father and daughter have not have spoken more and the 76-year-old retiree is increasing his interventions in the media.

“I love my daughter, but I really don’t appreciate what has become of her,” said the former Hollywood lighting chief, now based in Mexico. Promising to set the record straight on the Megxit, this new biography titled Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family (which can be translated as Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan, Creation of a Modern Royal Family ), is rich in detailed and intimate anecdotes, so much and if necessary that rumors affirm that the Sussexes themselves contributed to its drafting. Rumors firmly denied by a representative of the couple now living in Los Angeles.

Yet Thomas Markle seems to believe in this hypothesis: “This is the worst time in the world for them to whine and complain about everything, because people everywhere are suffering from the coronavirus pandemic.” Aiming to restore the image of the Sussexes since their shock departure from the British monarchy at the beginning of the year, the book looks back on the difficult integration of the ex-actress within the Windsor clan, the alleged lack of support from the family royal in the face of media pressure, but also the break between Thomas Markle and his daughter, in the spring of 2018.

Soon the reunion … in court?

Thomas Markle was supposed to lead his daughter to the altar, but he ultimately did not make the trip to the UK after staging a fake paparazzade near his home. Heart problems ensued which forced him to stay in Mexico. Worried, Meghan Markle would have done everything to bring him to Windsor and this, until the day before her wedding. According to the biography written by the Briton Omid Scobie and the American Carolyn Durand, the American would have tried to call her “at least twenty times”. She would have written a final message to her father the night before her wedding, from her bath.

The reunion of Thomas Markle and his daughter could be done in the coming months, not without bitterness … Both are indeed opposed in the lawsuit that Meghan Markle brought to the English group Associated Newspapers and its title the Mail on Sunday. The mother of Archie (1 year) criticizes the tabloid for having published a personal letter to his father a few months after his marriage. Missive that the latter himself shared with the press to take revenge … Nice.
