Meghan Markle’s Dad Just Picked A Fight With The Queen

Is anyone else tired of Meghan Markle’s dad, or is that just me? Thomas Markle has definitely taken the opportunity to bask in the limelight ever since his daughter got engaged to Prince Harry, stirring up all kind of crap in the process.

Recently, he’s claimed that Harry told his daughter to “give Donald Trump a chance,” which seems pretty unlikely due to the fact that Trump wasn’t even invited to the wedding (and that he very obviously stands against everything Markle believes in). Now he’s descended to a new level of petty, calling up his good friends at TMZ to take a shot at another royal family member: the Queen.

Thomas is particularly pissed because the Queen is visiting the US, but she probably won’t go out of her way to meet Thomas, bumping him in favor of Trump.

“If the Queen is willing to meet our arrogant and insensitive president she has no excuse not to meet me, I’m nowhere near as bad,” Thomas told TMZ.

Wow, imagine the figurehead of a country visiting another country to meet with its leader, not the family member who’s been making the lives of her grandson and new granddaughter-in-law so difficult. Inconceivable!

Thomas claims he still has plans to hop across the pond and see his daughter and her new royal family, but for some reason I can’t imagine he’ll be received well. Just call it intuition. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
