He is proud to have alerted Prince Harry. Fan of advertising, as the British tabloid The Mirror described this Sunday, August 8, Thomas Markle Jr. boasted of having insulted his half-sister, Meghan Markle, in an excerpt from the trailer for the Big Brother VIP show, the Australian version of Celebrity Big Brother, in which he appears. The program was broadcast on screens this Sunday. “I’m Meghan Markle’s brother,” he said, “I’m the biggest brother of all.” And to add: “I told Prince Harry that I thought she was going to ruin his life. She is very superficial.”
He even added that the main concern would not be “the ideal woman” for the grandson of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. Note, however, that Thomas Markle Jr. has a grudge against the Duchess of Sussex. First, because of the family conflict between Meghan Markle and their father, Thomas Markle. Archie and Lilibet’s mother Diana cut ties with him in 2018, after her marriage to Prince Harry. His half-brother seems to resent him for not having been invited to the ceremony. Her presence would not have been desired because the ex-actress and her half-brother had not spoken for seven years before the royal wedding took place.
Is Thomas Markle Jr. holding a grudge?
A distance that would have hurt him. Indeed, he made no secret of having been “hurt” at not having been invited to his half-sister’s wedding, given their former proximity. He insists, however, not to be bitter, but only “confused and a little clueless.” Would Meghan Markle have simply wanted to avoid the controversy? A year before his nuptials, Thomas Markle Jr. was arrested in Oregon for wielding a gun at a woman’s head during an argument while he was drinking. In 2019, he was arrested again for drunk driving.
