British Royal Family News says that Meghan Markle’s father Thomas Markle Sr. says that he publicly printed her private letters to him not because he wanted to hurt her, but because he felt “vilified” by the press.
The Duchess of Sussex’s estranged father allowed a private letter from his daughter to be published by the Mail on Sunday newspaper and on the MailOnline website after tension grew between himself and his daughter. Here’s what you need to know.
According to reports, Meghan Markle is suing the publisher Associated Newspaper for invasion of privacy. Nearly two years after Meghan’s letters were published, Thomas is now opening up about why he did it. The former ‘General Hospital’ lighting director claims that he was “vilified” by an article that was published in People Magazine.
British Royal Family News: Meghan Markle’s Father Says Media Vilified Him
“When I read the article ‘The Truth About Meghan’ in People magazine I was shocked by what it said about me,” Thomas said in a witness statement. “It was a total lie. It misrepresented the tone and content of the letter Meg had written me in August 2018 quickly decided I wanted to correct that misrepresentation.”
Apparently, the People Magazine article suggested Meghan “loved me and that she wanted to repair our relationship,” Thomas said. He, however, felt the letter criticized him.
Thomas added, “It actually signaled the end of our relationship, not a reconciliation.”
“The text of the letter proves that what was said in People magazine about the letter was wrong,” Thomas said. “It ‘dissolves’ what was said about me in that article. Readers had to see the letter for themselves — then they would know they were getting the truth.”
Thomas added that it was his choice to publish only parts of the letter and not the whole thing.
“I did not want the whole of the letter to be published,” he shared. “The reason for that was because I thought the letter as a whole made Meg look terrible. I do not want to attack or hurt her.”
So far Meghan Markle has not made any comments about the matter.
