In your latest ‘Megxit’ update, Meghan Markle’s estranged father Thomas Markle has spoken out about his daughter’s decision to step away from royal duties, slamming her and Harry in the process.

Thomas branded the decision to split from the royal family “disappointing” and “embarrassing” in an interview with Channel 5 for a Btirish television documentary.

“It’s disappointing because she actually got every girl’s dream, every young girl wanted to become a princess and she got that,” Markle said.

“And now she’s tossing that away for … it looks like she’s tossing that away for money.

“Apparently three million dollars and a 26-bedroom home isn’t enough for them. It’s kind of embarrassing to me.”

Markle said Harry and Meghan had tarnished the British monarchy.

“This is like one of the greatest long living institutions ever. They are destroying it, they are cheapening it, making it shabby,” he said.


“They are turning it into a Walmart with a crown on it.”

This comes one day after the Queen issues a statement, announcing that her family had come to a decision about the future of Meghan and Harry’s involvement with the royal family.

She recognised the “challenges” the couple had faced over the past year but assured the public that “Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family”.

Meghan and Harry have already begun a transition phase of living in Canada and the UK.


The duchess is currently in the Commonwealth country with son Archie, where the Sussexes spent six weeks over the festive period.
