May 04, 2018: Meghan Markle’s estranged half-brother has written an extraordinary open letter to Prince Harry, in which he urges the Prince to call off his and Markle’s wedding.
Thomas Markle Jr, who has the same father as Meghan, shared his letter with In Touch magazine in which he said that Meghan is “obviously not the right woman” for Harry, and is a “jaded, shallow, conceited woman”.
He also says that Meghan – who he’s previously mentioned he hasn’t seen since 2011 – will make a “joke” of Prince Harry and the “royal family heritage”.
“It’s not to [sic] late, Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you,” it reads.
“As more time passes to your royal wedding, it became very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history.
“I’m confused why you don’t see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees, Meghan’s attempt to get the part of a princess like a below C average Hollywood actress is getting old.”
He then claims that Meghan used her father for money, leaving him “bankrupt” and “broke” over “mostly all her debts”.
“And when it’s time to pay him back she forgets her own father like she never knew him,” he continued.
“My father will never recover financially from paying Meghan’s way, nor emotionally from disavowing him, Meg is showing her true colors.
“It’s very apparent that her tiny bit of Hollywood fame has gone to her head. Changing her into a jaded, shallow, conceited women, that will make a joke of you and the royal family heritage.”
He then claims that Meghan hasn’t invited her own family to the wedding and has welcoemd “complete strangers” instead, calling on the Prince to “put an end to this fake fairytale wedding”.
“Her own father didn’t get an invite, whom should be walking her down the aisle. She easily forgets if it wasn’t for my father she would be busing tables and baby sitting to pay her old debt off. The whole world is watching Meg make bad decisions and choices, it’s not too late Harry.
“Meghan is still my sister, she is family. So whatever happens is up to her, whether she want to forget knowing me or the rest of her family, family comes first.
“Also you would think that a proper royal wedding would bring a torn family closer together. But I guess we’re all distant family to Meg.
“Sincerely, Thom Markle Jr.”
Thomas Markle Jr isn’t the only half-sibling of Meghan’s to stir things up.
Samantha Grant, Meghan’s older half-sister, is reportedly writing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, and the title says it all.
But of course, we’ll only truly find out if there’s anything to these claims on the big day on May 19.
