Thomas Markle claimed TODAY that Meghan Markle “ghosted” her father because she was jealous of the attention given to her brother and sister.
Meghan’s father, 77, said the Duchess of Sussex wanted her to “stop talking” to her half-siblings but she “couldn’t”.
Speaking to Good Morning Britain from his home in Mexico, Mr Markle said his daughter had “very much rejected both sides of her family”.
And he believes his relationships with his half-siblings — Thomas Markle Jr., 55, and Samantha Markle, 56 — were part of the cause.
Asked by Richard Madley why his daughter “ghosted” him, Mr Markle said: “There are some reasons he is upset with me.
It comes like this…
- Meghan Markle’s father threatens to SUE ‘childish’ daughter and Prince Harry to see his grandson
- Harry left ‘the Queen, the army and the British people’ to ‘walk around on a bike’
- Meg ‘changed after hooking up with Harry’ and ‘rejected both sides of her family’, claims dad
“One was that he felt I was paying too much attention to his brother and sister.
“She wanted me to stop talking to her and I couldn’t.”
The disgruntled father, who hasn’t spoken to his daughter in years and has yet to meet his grandson, said Meghan was “childish” to bite her.
He also described their ongoing feud as “ridiculous”, insisting that they “grow up, talk, make up for the sake of the kids”.
He also threatened to sue his daughter and son-in-law in a desperate bid to see his grandchildren.
Meghan has distanced herself from her siblings, who have repeatedly slammed her in the media over the years.
Samantha once rebuked her sister as a “social climber” who “doesn’t deserve to be a royal”.
Meanwhile brother Thomas is attending Australia’s Celebrity Big Brother, who previously called Meghan a “funny”, a bully, and a “frozen, shallow, arrogant woman”.
Asked if it’s right for his son to talk about Meghan on TV, dad Thomas said: “My son Tom has been left as I have been and I’m sure he’ll react the same way.” Giving like other people (were ghosts).”
He referred to former GMB host Piers Morgan’s feud with Meghan, saying: “Pierce was right, we all get ghosted. Somebody wants to answer.”
But dad and grandfather were unable to say why the Duchess of Sussex kept her family “at arm’s length”.
And she told Harry the reason for her “transformation”.
“You’re asking me a question that’s four years old and I can’t answer it,” he said.
“I don’t know what changed her. She was never like this before and once she got involved with Harry that changed.
“I understand that she is associated with the Soho club and a different group of people, but she has largely rejected both sides of her family and I don’t understand the reason.”
