Meghan from Suits also wouldn't have got herself harassed by the paparazzi, her family, friends and colleagues badgered by reporters. One interview to Vanity Fair, after she did no promo and interviews during the whole duration of their dating time was imho nothing.

Exactly!
This man wanted to cash in, just like some of his children.
It's all about the money.

I think that, in future, he will see his daughter very rarely.

ITA. It was a nice, get to know you interview. A roll out of sorts for the future Duchess.

I didn't think about it being a favor for Suits because she was leaving and hadn't been promoting the show.
We can all agree that the cover was unusual both for a typical royal girlfriend and an actress on USA Network. But it wasn't usual circumstances she was living in. There hasn't been a royal girlfriend that's serious enough to be a future wife that has had a career that required them in front of the press in recent memory. And of course being Harry's girlfriend raised her profile and how many people knew her name, but not the person.

I think even the most ardent Meghan supporters would acknowledge that. So I was in the camp of it was the wrong thing to do.

I see where you are coming from on this Rudolph, but it is a certainty that it was done with Harry's approval and, as Cocoasneeze pointed out it is not as if she did any promotion for "Suits". So I think she killed two birds with one stone and, in inviting as many of the cast, etc. to the wedding, they also reaped a publicity windfall.

If the media is unavoidable it's best to do it their way.

I think that he has seen his daughter very rarely in the past decade, and only once in the last couple of years, so I'll bet you're right if Meghan's pattern holds true.

Her dad probably long ago realized that he wasn't going to be seeing much of her in the future, maybe he even thought 'What do I have to lose? A non-existent relationship with someone who obviously doesn't care enough to even introduce me in person to her husband-to-be?'

Now he's crying all the way to the bank as they say.

There is probably a reason he wasn't introduced. It would seem the real important people in her life (mom, some co stars, close friends) all met Harry and some multiple times. It says a lot that Thomas never did. Then again his recent actions probably is exactly why he never did.

He was all about himself in that interview. "I need to fix my image." "I want to be party of history." He ran to the media to stroke his ego. Hope the check was worth it.

But in Meghan's own words she's always been very close to her father, right? I agree, it says a lot that he's never met Harry, this relationship has been broken for a long time no matter how rosy Meghan wants to paint the picture.

And yesterday proved exactly why the relationship between Meghan and her father is not as close as with her mother. While Meghan cares for her father, she has found it necessary to keep her distance.

The one good thing that came out of yesterday was to show Harry and the BRF exactly the type of person that they are dealing with in Markle Snr and it put them on their guard to keep their private life to themselves. Could you imagine the information that he would have revealed if he had met Harry face to face? Or even if he had attended the wedding, especially the private reception?

Yes...I agree that in hindsight that it was a blessing in disguise that he could not attend the wedding....I would think that the BRF are thankful for that too!

When exactly did she say that she was always very close to her father? I never believed it in the first place but I still haven't seen her exact phrase nor the context in which it was said. Her recent statement was only that she always cared about him which is something you can say about family members that you are no longer particularly close to as well.

That just does not make sense. He may make bad decisions when things get tough, but he did remain quiet for a long time. He said himself that there were discussion about them going to visit him, but he told them to enjoy their day and go on a proper honeymoon. I haven't seen my dad in person in 3 years. It happens when you live in different countries and have different lifestyles.

I agree with you Missy, had same thoughts.

Even if it wasn't broken before, it surely is now!

After seeing Doris at the IG, up until the engagement, I thought/hoped we made might get a glimpse of Thomas with the couple. Distance can never change a loving relationship. I have come to the conclusion, JMHO, that the Duchess and her father have a distant relationship.

And getting more distant by the day because if Harry and Meghan cannot trust her father to keep their private life private....then they have no choice but to maintain or increase that distance.

And the hits just keep on coming. I think it is a general consensus that the interview that Tom Markle did with Piers Morgan was a huge mistake regardless of what Tom's motives were behind it. You have to know that when the following day, there is an interview with the interviewer discussing the controversial interview, its captured the attention of people around the world.

I saw this and found it interesting. I still don't care for Piers Morgan at all though. He reminds me of a circling shark laying in wait for prey.

If Thomas wasn't interested in the money he should donate it to one of their favorite charities.

Your first sentence hit the nail on the head for me Osipi. Because of the Duchess position, sharks will always be out looking for a nibble. I think the Markle family seem to like to go chumming IMO. For me, it’s the new Neverending Story.

This is not the Duke of Sussex fault.
