Meghan Markle’s refusal to reconcile with her father Thomas Markle Sr reportedly left Prince Charles ‘irritated’
Meghan Markle’s refusal to reconcile with her father Thomas Markle Sr reportedly left the Queen and Prince Charles ‘irritated’ with a royal expert saying that Charles ‘never understood’ Meghan.
The Duchess of Sussex’s relationship with her dad was put under scrutiny in the lead up to her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry, when Thomas slammed the royal family and the couple for ‘outdated’ traditions.
Now, in his new book, royal author Tom Bower has claimed that the Queen and Charles were left confused about Meghan’s rift with her father, and wanted her to reconcile.
In an excerpt from Bower’s book shared by The Sun, the author claimed that Harry and Meghan gave the Firm reasons for not reconciling with Thomas, with the Duke of Sussex telling Charles that Meghan did not reach out to her dad due to her phone being compromised.
Charles was left irritated to the point where he ‘berated’ Harry, with Bower saying: “Charles had never really understood Meghan or what she wanted.”
“That week, his irritation about Thomas Markle’s TV appearances, especially his criticism of the Royal Family, came to a head. ‘Can’t she just go and see him and make this stop?’” Charles reportedly asked Harry.
Bower continued: “The inconsistencies of Meghan’s excuses not only irritated Charles but perhaps also the Queen.”
