Meghan’s half-brother asks the Queen to help heal family rift

The Royal Family have been through a whirlwind time in the media since the arrival of one particular member: Meghan Markle. It appears the world can’t get enough of the new duchess, but now it’s the rest of her family who is hoping to get the media’s attention. That’s right; allegedly Meghan’s half-brother has turned to the Queen as he hopes the monarch will finally help to heal the family rift after so many months apart.

Hitting the big time


Meghan Markle has been in the spotlight for many years thanks to her time in the political drama series, Suits. However, marrying Prince Harry back in May 2018 helped to catapult this star to a new level of fame.

Now, the Duchess of Sussex is one of the most talked-about people in the world as many fans come to share their love for the royal. Sadly, not everyone feels the same way – including Meghan’s family.

Grabbing their attention


Meghan’s family have been in and out of the media ever since she joined the Royal Family. Her half-sister, Samantha Markle, has been vocal about her opinions on Meghan’s marriage and how she feels as though Meghan is tearing their family apart. She isn’t alone.

Meghan’s dad and half-brother have also spoken about their distaste for their relation’s new life with the Royals. However, it now looks as though her half-brother is trying to use the media as a way to reach out to his sibling once again. It’s certainly got the world’s attention, but will the rest of the family listen?

Cut out


It turns out that things haven’t always been smooth for the Markles and Meghan. It appeared as though the duchess was once close to her father, Thomas Markle Sr. Sadly, that all changed in the build-up to Meghan’s big day.

Thomas was caught staging photos for a suit fitting as everyone planned the ceremony. Meghan and the rest of the Royals were less than impressed. Meghan eventually decided to uninvite her dad to the wedding and walked with Prince Charles down the aisle instead. Now, just Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mom, is allowed to be a part of the Duke and Duchess’ new life.

Feeling left out


Although it’s been more than a year since Meghan and Harry walked down the aisle, it appears as though Meghan is yet to speak to the majority of her family. Now, Thomas Markle Jr. wants that to change. Meghan’s half-brother reached out to The Mirror, where he explained that the majority of the family feels that they have been cut off from Meghan’s new life.

The majority of her relatives didn’t get an invite to the big day, while most of them only hear big announcements from her life like the rest of the world: through news stories in the media.

Revealing his feelings


It seems as though Thomas Markle Jr. hasn’t always been on his half-sister’s side with her relationship. In fact, back in April 2018, Thomas Jr. wrote an open letter to Prince Harry in the hopes the royal would see that he was making “the biggest mistake in royal wedding history.”
Revealing his feelings

Ouch. Thomas believed the rest of the world was seeing the “real Meghan,” yet Harry was falling for someone entirely different. It appeared that a lack of wedding invite was still a sore subject for Thomas who questioned why he hadn’t received one in the mail. He wanted the wedding to stop before it was too late.

Taking it back


The letter soon spread as many read about how Thomas Jr. believed Meghan’s time in Hollywood had gone to her head. He just wanted Meghan to think about their shared father and the effects that her actions could have on Thomas Sr.’s health.

It wasn’t long after the letter was published that Thomas Jr. apologized and confessed that he didn’t think it was a fake wedding and wanted to wish the couple all the best.

Fears for the future


Now, it looks as though Thomas Jr. wants the media to help him once again. He told The Mirror about how he worries if something happened to their shared father, that Meghan wouldn’t be there to support him through the tough times.

Thomas Jr. believed this could be something that Meghan would go on to regret for the rest of her life. It was time to put an end to it all, but Thomas Jr. needed help.

Stating his case


Thomas Jr. continued to explain that it’s down to Meghan’s new family to make her listen and force her to talk to the rest of her family. In fact, Thomas had one particular person in mind. That’s right; he wanted the Queen to “step in and tell Meghan” that she needed to patch things up with her family.
Stating his case

The Royals are known for their privacy, but this was one request that would be tough to ignore.

Recruiting a team


That wasn’t all. Thomas Jr. still had plenty to say about how he believes the Royals should be the ones to put everything to rest. As well as thinking that the Queen should set Meghan on a new path, Thomas Jr. hopes that Prince Charles will step forward to influence his daughter-in-law.

Thomas wants Charles to “force her into this,” so the rift doesn’t “cause problems in her life.”

A high price


While it seemed as though Thomas Jr. wanted the bet for his half-sister, it appeared as though he also had something else that he wanted to get off his chest. Thomas confessed that he was worried about how much Meghan and Harry spent renovating Frogmore Cottage.

The royal couple are reported to have spent £2.4 million (approx. $2.9 million) of taxpayers’ money, but Thomas feels the British public will be angered by the news.

A new addition


Thomas continued to explain that he hoped Meghan is one day “smart enough and mature enough” to open up to the rest of her family. Meghan recently gave birth to her first son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

However, Doria is the only member of her family who has been allowed to meet the little one. Doria even lived with the royal couple for the first few weeks as they settled into their new roles as parents.

Too much attention


It appears as though the rest of the family are less than impressed at Meghan’s decision to keep her other relatives away from the newborn. There have been a handful of photos of Meghan and Harry introducing Archie to the rest of the Royal Family.

However, the couple admit they want to keep their private lives away from the media. It almost seems as though Meghan’s family gain too much media attention for their liking.

Across the pond


Thomas Jr. says that both his father and himself feel as though they no longer know the Meghan that has become such a huge part of the rest of the world. Life as part of the Royal Family has been a considerable change from the Hollywood star they were so used to seeing.

Although Thomas worries about how Meghan has changed, he wanted his half-sister to remember she has family in the U.S. who care.

Next to go


Meghan and Thomas Jr. share the same father. Samantha has often spoken about how she feels as though it’s Doria who has stopped Meghan from being so close with her father over the years. In fact, Samantha even went to the palace in the hopes of reaching out to Meghan, only to be turned away.

However, Thomas Jr. now worries that Doria could be the next one to get phased from Meghan’s new royal life.

Here and there


While speaking to The Mirror, Thomas Jr. stated that Doria “gets a day here, a day there.” Doria was a significant part of the royal wedding and has been spotted with her daughter a handful of times since she joined the Royals.

Plus, Doria was one of the few who was invited into Frogmore Cottage when Meghan welcomed her son. Could that really all be about to change? Thomas certainly seems to think it could be on the cards.

Feeling at home


It seems as though things might already be in motion behind closed doors. However, it could actually be a plan to help Doria become a more significant part of Archie’s life than ever before. Meghan Markle enjoyed a New York baby shower, with many fans noting how the duchess appeared to be at home as she walked the American streets once more.

There were many rumors the pair could be making a permanent move across the pond.

A new team


Now, Emily Andrews, a royal correspondent to The Sun, believes that Harry and Meghan could be planning to buy a house in America. It’s been reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are planning to team up with Oprah Winfrey to make a documentary all about mental health.

Plus, the pair have split from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to focus their time on their own charities. This is the first step to promote their cause.

A new home


Emily feels that it’s Meghan and Doria’s close relationship that could be the final decider to see the couple buy a house across the pond. Now, Emily believes that Meghan and Harry will choose somewhere in Los Angeles to be as close to Doria as possible.

Emily even added how she thinks the couple will stay in the house over the holidays or on special occasions and may also let Doria stay there whenever she likes.

Another plea


It seems as though Meghan and Doria’s relationship could be stronger than ever, but Thomas Jr. isn’t the only one to try and reach out to Meghan through the media in the hopes the family can repair their rift. Thomas Sr. has also appealed to the Queen to try and get Her Majesty to make Meghan talk to her family once again.

Apparently, Thomas Sr. has text Meghan every day but hasn’t got a response.

Missing the memo


Thomas Sr. was talking to Good Morning Britain when he confessed that he feels all families have their issues – regardless of whether they are royal or not. Thomas thinks that families should be brought together at the holidays, but the Queen might need to give Meghan a push to reach back out.

Sadly, Meghan decided to spend Christmas 2018 with the Royal Family at Sandringham instead. Perhaps the Queen didn’t get Thomas’ message in time?

Breaking the silence


It looks as though Meghan has officially broken her silence to her father, but didn’t want the world to know. That was until Thomas Sr. supposedly leaked portions of the letter to the press. Apparently, Meghan wrote the letters back in August 2018.

The letters talk about how Meghan is confused by her dad’s actions, and she doesn’t understand why he has chosen to speak to the media so much and give interviews about their relationship.

Calling him out


The letters continued to state that Thomas Sr.’s interviews have “broken my heart into a million pieces” as Meghan and the rest of the Royals were devastated to have so much attention from the media.

The letters then continued to point out many things that Meghan reportedly thought weren’t true, such as Thomas claiming to have called Meghan about the wedding and how she supposedly refused to help her father financially among other things.

Up in the air


Sadly, the letters didn’t have the effect that Thomas Sr. might have hoped as Meghan reportedly asked her father to stop what he was doing and leave the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to live their lives in peace.

Kensington Palace often tries to keep the family’s personal lives hidden from the media. It looks as though we won’t have a response anytime soon, and no one knows if the Queen will finally answer the Markle’s pleas.
