I don't feel sorry for Meghan. There's a reason she cut these people out of her life before she even met Harry. She got on with her life then as she is getting on with it now. The half siblings actions are further confirmation and vindication of why Meghan has made some of the decisions that she has had to make.

As for the tabloids...well, they are just doing what tabloids do. And they wouldn't be printing these stories if her estranged family wasn't willing to provide them. It's an unfortunate part of royal life which Meghan will have to deal with for years to come.

It’s a different media outlet at any one time providing those people with platforms to spew rubbish. Others just follow suit and so on and on it goes. But there’s an expiry date and I reckon that will happen not long after the wedding, a year tops. The media/people in general will get bored of it all once it finally sinks it that those people have no real insider information about Meghan’s married life as a royal. Watch the Markle value plummet. Those half sibs have discredited backgrounds themselves and their tales are woefully inconsistent and full of contradictions. Issues of violence and abuse surrounds them as reported in the newspapers. These are toxic people who can’t even maintain healthy relationships with their own children. You’d have to be moronic to take anything they spew about Meghan seriously.

I'm laughing at Sam's tweet "defending" Meghan against Jr's letter. It's basically it's the booze talking. I think Sam has it in her head that if the wedding is called off (we know it's not going to happen but follow me) Sam would lose her status as an in law to the BRF and the media will no longer pay attention to her. Worse, that same media could turn on her and Jr, blaming them for the wedding being called off.

It’s just a shame that some members of the Markle family have decided to make a total fool of themselves by carrying out their family feuds in the media. They clearly have some deep issues that they need to solve privately on someone’s sofa. They don’t have to take their anger out on Meghan; who has moved on in her life.

Notice how graceful and dignified Mr. Markle Sr. and Ms. Ragland have carried on since their daughter got involved with the worlds most famous bachelor.

The media prints these stories because people read them; look how many people came here talking about it and posting links. That is traffic for the sites and attention for Tom.

From People Magazine - Tom Sr. is going to the wedding:

Meghan Markle's Father Thomas Markle Will Attend Royal Wedding | PEOPLE.com

The poison pen letter by Jr. has just been blown out of the water. Coming out 24 hrs. after Jr. was saying she didn't invite their father. People is a gossip mag but it's considered more reliable than InTouch Weekly. I'm guessing Tom Sr was invited all along and he kept it from his family including his kids. Sam and Tom Jr and the other Markles will try to spin this to say Harry and Meghan gave in; but rational people will see this as an attempt to walk back what they've previously said in order to save face.

I tried to put the"Keep Calm and Carry On" poster into this post, but it wouldn't work: maybe a Daily Fail bug is at fault! In any case, I am sure that is posted on the wall of Ms Markle's work room!

I HIGHLY doubt she has went on a Diana video viewing spree in order to imitate her habits. Imo Meghan has always been charismatic, charming, has been able to read the room. There are also reports from multiple people from.years back, that she was a bit shy but very nice and kind. Chrissy Teigen said this, they knew each other from Deal or No Deal days. Jmo.
Her demeanor has changed SO much since her engagement, I don't know how anyone can say it hasn't. The confident woman strolling down the sidewalk to yoga has been replaced by a shy ingenue who coyly waves to the crowd from the safety of Harry's arm. They both have changed since they've been together, and not for the better imho.

She's still quite a confident woman as we can see on all of their walkabouts. People are not exactly waiting for hours to see her and scream her name when she's walking to yoga. As for somehow suggesting she's hanging on to the safety of Harry's arm, they are simply holding hands. Like they also did in the few paparazzi shots we saw of them around the same time of those yoga shots. The only thing that's changed about Harry is that he's got an extra bounce in his step and looks so proud to have his fiancee join him.

We clearly are seeing completely different things.

Unless and UNTIL KP confirms exactly whom amongst this mess of a family intends to attend/has been invited this wedding, it seems sensible to 'count on NOTHING'.

The 'coy' wave to the crowd happened months ago at one of Meghan's first post engagement interviews. She hasn't done that wave since, nor has she clutched at Harry's arm at all in recent engagements. They are never seen out together privately so no-one can say what they are like together and with friends, but I would bet that it's the same as it's always been.

As for Harry's demeanour, he is extra protective of Meghan, a foreigner in a country where she's been hammered incessantly by a feral tabloid press. Other than that (and I've followed Harry since he was 19) I see no change in him. Physically he's just thinner these days.

I'm just mystified at the constant negativity towards this couple.

Richard Palmer said they were told early on to expect her father to be there. And no, People isn't nearly as bad as the likes of InTouch or the dailies. They actually have good relationships with a lot of the celebrities and get exclusive rights.

I've followed Harry since he was born, so yeah I do see a change in him. He seems like he has a chip on his shoulder now, like he is just waiting for someone to cross him the wrong way. And Meghan is a long way from where she was as far as looking like a confident woman. Of course there's all kinds of legitimate reasons for both changes, but to deny they've changed is ridiculous.

Let's stay on topic....Meghan's Family and Background.

No internet analysis on whether or not Meghan or Harry's personalities have changed.

Any and all additional off topic posts will be deleted without notice.

Thank you!

Wow - Meghan's half sibs are literally showing their ENTIRE backsides.

It's like having a bunch of Kanyes for half-family members.

Other than a potential pay check (cause I can only assume he was paid for such an article) what does he hope to achieve?
Agreed. That fact that he would do something like this shows the type of person he is and why Meghan would not invite him.

Sour grapes is exactly what I have been thinking about that side of her family.

Scratch that...he clearly wasn't thinking.

He said that Thomas Sr. wasn't invited to the wedding but how would he know if he doesn't talk to him. It's also interesting that he references Meghan putting their father into debt? Has anyone else heard this rumour? I was under the impression that Thomas won a substantial sum in the lottery (around 750K) and this helped Meghan go to her private school in California.
I agree about Thomas Sr. No one really know if he has been invited, and if he has not, it may not be for the reason people assume. All of this is speculation, but IF he has not been invited, it could be because he just truly can't handle the spotlight and it could look better for him to not be invited than to turn a wedding invite down from his daughter. Then again, all of this is speculation and he could have been invited. No one knows anything about what conversations he and Meghan may have had.

It's very different know,obviously !
Very much so. We only have to back a couple of generations to see that the whole Wallis Simpson affair was not generally known about by the public for the most part up to the time of the abdication.

Today, its a huge money market to air dirty underwear in public and the better the shock and awe, the more money it garners. Its a prime way to garner one's 15 minutes of fame. There's a certain market and readership that feeds on this kind of stuff.

Its often been said that a fool and his money are soon parted. When the question arises on just how a fool came by the money in the first place, we now have an answer. Tabloids.

Ms Markle, as lovely as she is, simply is a risk for the monarchy. Apart from the new shot of celebrification she injects in the royal family: have we ever seen another royal bride whose family is effectively sabotaging the forthcoming union?
