Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas believes she is not happy at all as a royal. In fact, during a brand new interview, the man claimed she is ‘terrified’ of her role and everything that comes with it. This claim comes just days after Meghan’s good friend, actress Priyanka Chopra revealed exactly the opposite, that she fits in great with the blue-blooded family and loves what she’s doing.
From what we’ve been able to observe from the outside for the past two months since the former Suits actress married Prince Harry, it looks like she’s adjusted pretty well.
However, Thomas Markle would beg to differ.
During an interview for The Sun, Meghan’s dad claimed the new Duchess is miserable.
‘My thing about my daughter now is that I think she’s terrified. I see it in her eyes, in her face and I see it in her smile. I have seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I do not like the one I am seeing now… This is a pained smile,’ he started.
Thomas went on to take into consideration that maybe her facial expression might have been the result of just a ‘couple of bad days’
However, he added that: ‘I don’t know. It really worries me. I think she’s under too much pressure.’
The dad also slammed the rules and regulations Meghan had to learn and follow as a member of the British royal family.
‘Meghan seems like out of an old movie. Why in 2018 are we dressing like in the 1930s? Why do they must cover their knees? I’m not blaming [Prince] Harry or anyone, but they’re following rules that do not make sense to me. They’re no less human than anyone else. God knows, I feel sorry for them, for not being able to show emotion.’
Thomas Markle also sent a message to Harry: ‘Get over it, I am your new father-in-law.’
Finally, he argued that ‘I just want to clear the air and tell her how proud I am of her [Meghan,]’ and declared that ‘I would like to make this my last interview.’
We’re sure the Royals would appreciate that, considering they reportedly asked him to stop talking to the press before.
