Meghan Markle Struck by a Half-brother
More family drama for Meghan Markle. Her half-brother is now claiming the future Royal has “forgotten her roots” and is acting “fake” in the direction of her family.
Meghan Markle’s half-brother has resurfaced.
Thomas Markle Jr. told the BRITISH Daily Mail Wednesday that he’ll wonder why his side of the family can not be cared for, such as the Middletons, claiming Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith, is welcome in the herd despite four marriages, and a conviction for domestic violence.
“They’ve [brought outsiders in] in the past, such as with the Middletons,” said the 52-year-old. “I don’t see why our family is different.”
Thomas Jr. claimed Markle, the paternal side of the family has been frozen since the American actress married the british Prince Harry in May. Their father, a former Hollywood lighting director Thomas Markle has been several interviews about the “Suits” stars without the 37-year-old’s permission.
“Kensington Palace could have went a long time ago, as soon as they announced their engagement,” said Thomas, Jr. “They’ve had to deal with this kind of thing for a long time, and why did they did [sic] it this way, that is the big question. Why? They can looked at my father and he would have been happy.”

Thomas Jr. marked Middleton’s uncle, who has stirred up headers despite his niece married to Prince William, who is second in line for the throne. Back in January, the uk Express reported the 52-year-old and his wife, 48-year-old, Julie-Ann Brown, giving their marriage a second chance after he was accused of assault in 2017.
Goldsmith admitted hitting his wife and threw her on the ground after a drunken argument which was reportedly about his drug use. Goldsmith was ordered to undergo rehab after a judge claimed he did not show repentance.

“I think that Uncle Gary and I would be fine,” said Thomas, Jr. “It would have been nice to get an invitation for the wedding, as he was. I don’t need to be notified of all the events or whatever, but it would have been nice to be informed.”
Markle is estranged from her brothers and sisters and has not spoken to her father since the day after the wedding. Markle’s mother, 61-year-old Doria Ragland, was the only family member present when she tied the knot with Harry, 33.

The Daily Mail pointed out that when Middleton married Harry’s brother Prince William in 2011, almost all of her family was present, including the Goldsmith.
Thomas Jr. he said frustrated his famous sister couldn’t have included the family in her new life as a royal.
“I think Meghan should have handled this differently,” he said. “I think Meghan should have handled this, from the beginning, and I think that it was ignored and swept under the carpet for so long, it is a shame where it ended up, especially between her and my father.”
Thomas Jr. claimed Markle and her father were very close during her childhood, and he devoted “all his free time to her.” However, their relationship reportedly became strained after they started shooting “Suits” in 2011.
“Before they get to the ‘Suits’ they were just in constant contact the whole time and that is all he would ever talk about,” claimed Thomas, Jun. “He devoted all his time to her. But then she could not give him the time he needed or wanted to spend more time with her, he was angry about.

“She didn’t need him as she needed him before she got everything she wanted from a star and is on that show. He would have to reach out to her and I think that their relationship was a much more remote than that, and that hurt his feelings.”
Just a few days before Meghan walked down the aisle in the eyes of millions to marry Harry, told her father would not be present at the royal wedding following his heart surgery.
“Unfortunately, my father will not be present at our wedding,” she said in a statement released by Kensington Palace. “I’ve always cared for my father and hope that he can be given the space he needs to concentrate on his health.
“I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Then you know how much Harry and I look forward to sharing our special day with you on Saturday.”

He also stirred headlines when it was revealed he staged paparazzi photos that showed him preparing for the big day.
Thomas Jr. said he was forced to be by his father’s side.

“When I heard about his health and his heart attack, that hit a nerve with me and I felt the urgency to get in contact with him,” he explained. “He changed his a number of a lot and I didn’t have his new number, so in the end I’m down there [Mexico] to find him to make sure he was okay.
“He had a rough life, the studios take a lot from you and he didn’t look like he was in as good a form as before, so it worried me to create. I don’t think he deserves that kind of treatment from her. I think she owes him emotionally as his daughter to support him, the way he supported her.
“To see all this going on in the media, of their relationship so close and so strong her whole life to come, if they do not want to go with him, for reasons that I do not know. No father-daughter relationship should be like this. I feel for him, because of how strong their relationship was and how it has become now. That’s got to hurt anybody. It’s not the Meghan I remember. The Meg I remember, was very caring and she cared about everyone that was important to her.”
Thomas Jr. also said Markle has changed dramatically since she found success in Hollywood long before she and Harry announced their engagement in November.

“Since Hollywood and is a celebrity has her,” he said. “Maybe they feel that they are above everyone else, perhaps even more than now. But when she’s not with Prince Harry now — even if they are still on the ‘to Fit the’ here and now — they would have stopped what she was doing to go and visit him and make sure he’s OK… But for now, I think just to be acknowledged as her family would be nice.”
Just a few days before the high-profile marriage, Thomas, Jr. shared a handwritten letter In Touch, warning Harry that it was “not too late” to stop the wedding. He then took back what he said, and gushed about Markle, they say, would be the “perfect modern princess.”
