In their Netfix documentary, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan give an insight into their lives.
Again and again, Duchess Meghan (41) had to accept attacks from her family. Her father Thomas Markle (78), her half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. (56) and especially her half-sister Samantha Markle (58) shot her publicly. In their Netflix documentary, the first three episodes of which were released on Thursday, the former actress and her husband Prince Harry (38) defend themselves for the first time. Meghan’s half-siblings don’t like that.
“I think it’s terrible. The documentary is so outlandish on so many different levels that it’s actually a bit disturbing,” Thomas Markle Jr. fumed on Talk TV. Especially the comments about his father annoy him
“For Harry to say something like that is outrageous”
In 2018, Thomas Markle sold posed photos of his preparations to the British media shortly before the big royal wedding. Meghan has repeatedly sought contact with her father. After a phone call, however, she realized how he had lied to her. But it got even worse. He spoke to the US gossip portal TMZ. Duchess Meghan even had to learn from the media that her father would not accompany her to the altar. A moment that Prince Harry regrets: “Of course it’s incredibly sad what happened. She had a father before – and now she has no father,” he says. “I take it on myself because if Meghan wasn’t with me, her dad would still be her dad.” To say that she has no family and no father is “just ridiculous,” says Thomas Markle Jr.
Samantha Markle is of the same opinion. She doesn’t want her father to watch the Netflix series. “He’s been through so much – two heart attacks and one stroke – and she let it, watched and didn’t do anything about it, and for Harry to say something like that is outrageous,” she told GB News.
Thomas Markle Jr. wants to release his own documentary
Both half-siblings accuse Meghan of lying in the documentary. “She swept the whole family under the rug like we didn’t exist and then lied that she didn’t have the family she always wanted,” Thomas Markle Jr said. He now wants to tell his side of the story. “That’s what prompted me to work with my own production team and release our side of a documentary in 2023 that will shed a lot of light on the matter,” he explains, adding, “The amount of never The existing files, photos, videos and documents that we will include in our documentation will tell a completely different story.”
While Markle Jr. wants to take action against Meghan with his own documentation, British politician Bob Seely (56) demands that their titles be revoked. He has now presented a bill for this. Because he believes Harry and Meghan are “monetizing” their titles with “aggressive” and “incredible” attacks on the royal family and Britain. (bsn)
