Meghan Markle Reportedly Didn't Listen to the Queen About the Drama With Her Dad Glamour Christopher Rosa,Glamour 3 hours ago Reactions Reblog on Tumblr Share Tweet Email The last time Thomas Markle majorly made headlines was around the royal wedding. If you remember, he was expected to attend his daughter Meghan Markle's nuptials to Prince Harry, but medical issues ultimately kept him away. The most perplexing part of the situation, though, was his chattiness with the press. Every time there was an update about his royal wedding attendance, Thomas gave a statement to TMZ. He's kept up this media transparency too, talking to outlets seemingly every chance he gets. Samantha Markle, Meghan's half-sister, is notorious for doing this as well.
Thomas' latest media tour is generating just as much buzz as his royal wedding quotes. In a new interview with Good Morning Britain, Thomas says he's been trying to text Meghan for weeks but hasn't received a response. He says he's been "ghosted" by everyone connected to Meghan and wants Queen Elizabeth II, of all people, to help mend this rift.
But the queen reportedly has her own opinions about this situation. A new feature from Vanity Fair posits she isn't too keen on Meghan's strategy of ignoring the drama with her father.
"[The Queen] was very concerned that it [the Thomas Markle situation] was spiraling out of control, which it was, one observer tells VF. Buckingham Palace wanted to be able to do something and be proactive and make the situation go away. It was a direction from the Queen, so her courtiers were under strict instructions to sort it out. But Kensington Palace was not singing from the same hymn sheet, and that was because the message was coming from Meghan. She didnt want to engage and thought that she could handle it on her own."
Meghan's silence on the matter has reportedly ruffled some feathers in the palace. "There was a lot of tension between courtiers within the two royal households, and I think it just got to a point where it was stalemate and, you know, neither could move," the source added.
From the surface, it appears Meghan's silence method is prevailing. No one in the royal household has directly commented on the Thomas Markle dramayet. Of course, we'll let you know if that changes.
