It’s fair to say that Meghan Markle’s Dad was the face of the common person during the Royal Wedding bonanza, a simple bloke who’s daughter was marrying into royalty and old mate thought he had absolutely lucked out.
However, everyone stopped feigning admiration for him when it was found that Thomas Markle had conspired with the paparazzi to stage some photos in the lead up to the big wedding, a massive royal no-no.
“Harry told me that I should never go to the press,” Thomas said. “That it would end in tears.”
He was absolutely bloody right because the press tore into the poor bloke so badly that he opted to not walk his daughter down the aisle, blaming it on an alleged heart attack.
Not long after, Thomas recieved a call from the Prince that essentially went like, “You’re a fucking idiot, if you did what I told you we wouldn’t be knee-deep in this shitfest that you’ve manifested for us.”
To which Thomas so elequently and maturely replied,”Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead … then you could pretend to be sad.”
… and then he hung up.
He later admitted that Harry was totally right and he fucked up, but he’s still sick of all the press.
“I’m not mad at Harry. I’m not mad at Meghan. I love them. I wish them well. But as for the rest of it, f*** it. I’m done.”
