Have We Given Meg a Hard time? Ask Her Sister and Dad By Peter West

     If anyone thinks that we gave Meg Markle a hard time in critical posts this week, simply consider that her sister and dad are her harshest critics:

“MY sister has ripped through the Royal Family like a tornado. With this historic institution close to collapse, we have to ask whether peace can really be found. Her Majesty’s words show great diplomacy but Meghan’s behaviour has so far not been diplomatic. A diplomat wouldn’t fall out with her own family. Her friends leaked negative comments about the “toxic” Royal Family. She also allowed damage to be done against our family via friends and PR advisers. She watched the media taunt and torture my dad, never springing to his defence like a true humanitarian would. Thomas was an incredible dad. He paid every penny of her education and cared greatly for her. He is now frail, with a heart condition. He doesn’t have a PR team to spin him a good story. The Queen, at 93, shouldn’t have had to face the stress of seeing her family torn apart. Meghan hasn’t stepped forward to minimise the damage. She knows how Harry leaving has affected them, but she hasn’t spoken up in their defence. Yet in her statement, the Queen says she is “particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family”. Her Majesty is building bridges there. It would be good if Meghan could do the same. She could have expressed her thanks for the kindness of the Queen and Prince Charles. She could have expressed gratitude to her own father or her first husband, Trevor, who gave her career opportunities. My sister has become a totally different person, choosing wealth and fortune over family.”

     What about poor old neglected dad?

“Meghan Markle‘s estranged dad has slammed his daughter for “destroying” Britain’s royal family — accusing her of turning the monarchy “into a Walmart with a crown on.” Thomas Markle, 75, called his daughter and her husband, Prince Harry, “lost souls” in an upcoming UK documentary — saying he found it “embarrassing” the way they were ditching the royals, seemingly for a payday. “This is like one of the greatest long-living institutions ever,” Markle told Channel 5 documentary, “Thomas Markle: My Story,” in a clip released Sunday. “They are destroying it, they are cheapening it, they’re making it shabby,” he said. “They are turning it into a Walmart with a crown on it now. It is something that is ridiculous, they shouldn’t be doing this.” Markle — who plans to be a key witness against his daughter in an upcoming UK court battle — said he was shocked because his daughter appeared to have “every girl’s dream” after marrying a prince. “Every young girl wants to become a princess and she got that and now she’s tossing that away,” he told the 90-minute doc, which Channel 5 said will air “in the coming weeks”. “It looks like she’s tossing that away for money,” he said.”

     I know that every family has its problems, but here we are considering the Royal Family and the survival of an institution. The costs of an uncritical view, are just too great.
