Meghan Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle, is officially on the royal family’s bad side. Following Thomas’ surprising interview on Good Morning Britain – where he dished on Prince Harry’s political views – the palace has reportedly banned him from attending royal events for the rest of his life.
The royal family apparently had no warning that Thomas was going on Good Morning Britain to talk about his relationship with Harry. But that didn’t stop Thomas from talking about his conversations with members of the royal family and telling the world exactly how Harry feels about Donald Trump and Brexit.
Unfortunately for Thomas, the royal family did not react well to the shocking interview.

An inside source told Radar Online that Thomas’ interview with Piers Morgan was very embarrassing to the family and left them with no choice but to ban him from their lives.
“Meghan’s father has now made it impossible to ever again be invited to any royal events,” the inside dished, adding that Thomas is no longer trusted and will receive no access to the royal family.
Per royal tradition and protocol, Queen Elizabeth was probably briefed about the interview the following morning. Instead of feeling angry towards Thomas, however, Her Majesty reportedly felt bad for Meghan, who was very embarrassed by the entire situation.
Thomas, of course, was unable to attend the royal wedding last month because of health issues and has not actually met Harry in person.
In the interview, Thomas talked about the conversations he’s had with Harry over the phone and had nothing but good things to say about his daughter’s husband. The chat turned problematic, however, once Thomas started talking about the things Harry said about Trump and Brexit.
Harry allegedly told Thomas, who hates Trump, to give him a chance before handing down a verdict. He also said that he was in support of the Brexit vote.
Members of the royal family usually stay out of the political arena, which makes Thomas’ interview all the more troubling. The source claims that Kensington Palace has tried to reach out to Thomas and give him guidance about what to say in public. Thomas, unfortunately, has rejected the advice and continues to go out on his own.
Because of his actions, the palace does not want Prince Harry interacting with Thomas anymore. The ordeal has not been easy for Meghan Markle, who is trying her best to keep her father under control.
