Okay so we get it: a wedding just wouldn’t be a wedding without a little family drama. But can we all just please agree that enough is enough already, especially when it comes to the family drama that is Meghan Markle’s father?
Thomas Markle, a.k.a. the guy who refused to walk his daughter down the aisle, a.k.a. the guy who has been doing nothing but throwing his daughter under the bus in the tabloids, a.k.a. the guy we’re going to go ahead and call the worst already, just gave a nine hour interview to the Daily Mail in which he basically trashed his daughter. Again.
That’s right, Mr. Markle just spat out a nine hour interview in which he basically said that his daughter would be “nothing” without him and that he’s pretty sure when Meghan and Harry have kids he’s not going to be allowed to see his grandchildren.
We mean, who knows if that will be the case but could you blame new parents from wanting to shield their baby from that kind of crap?
Anyhow, here are just some of the highlights from the interview, as rounded up in Cosmo:
- The palace wants nothing to do with him (duh?)
- He believes the new royal couple will have a baby in the next year (yes please)
- He’s the reason Meghan is a Duchess (“I made her the Duchess she is today. Everything that Meghan is, I made her.”)
- He’s pissed that Meghan’s mom gets all the credit (“Oh, she’s a mummy’s girl now.”)
- He thinks his time on Earth is almost up (whatever that has to do with anything)
- The palace supposedly lied to him about whether he should apologize (“Perhaps you do it with gravy and flowers on the side?”)
Um, wow. Just wow. We have to ask, is it any wonder that this guy and his daughter are estranged? Apparently we aren’t the only ones who are a little dumbfounded by the interview. Our girl crush Chrissy Teigen, who is never one to mince words, took to Twitter to share her opinions on the matter. And her opinion? “This guy sucks.”

Thank you Chrissy, for saying what we’re all thinking. Or, we suppose, what most of us are thinking. One person who wasn’t impressed with Teigen’s public comments was Markle’s sister Samantha Grant.
On her own private Twitter account Grant decided to take Teigen to task for her Tweet, calling her a pudgy airhead.
“So this pudgy airhead @Christinetiegen Who knows nobody in the family is opening her pie hold? “This guy” is our father and deserves a lot of respect,.. you are the one who sucks.”
Sigh. The drama just keeps on coming, huh? Thank you, social media. In the meantime we’re not really expecting Teigen to feed into this anymore, at least. She kind of has more important things to do with her time, including raising her own kids and being fabulous.
As for Mr. Markle? Well let’s just say we’re already exhausted thinking about what the heck he’s going to come up with next.
