- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly upset that Thomas Markle is using Doria Ragland as a "pawn" in their feud.
- Thomas recently said that he gave Doria a letter for Meghan, but he still hasn't heard from his daughter.
By now we're all pretty used to Meghan Markle's father, Thomas Markle, talking smack about his daughter/the royal family to the press, so it wasn't a surprise when he made an appearance on Good Morning Britain a few days ago.
What was notable about his latest interview, however, was that Thomas threatened to do monthly interviews unless Meghan got in touch with him (what?!?!), and he also dragged Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, into the situation. He said, "I’ve spoken and sent letters to Doria to get to Meghan as well, and that hasn’t happened."
And while it's clear that Thomas' threat is pretty gross, Meghan and Harry actually seem more upset that Thomas brought up Doria. In fact, according to The Sun, the Meghan and Harry are "furious" about it. A source shares:
Thomas’ attempt to bring Doria into the whole thing is a desperate move. She is a completely innocent party in the whole thing. If Meghan decides to speak to her dad again it will be her own decision. They don’t want Doria dragged into any of this and to become a pawn for Thomas to use. Doria doesn’t do conflict.
Ughhh, Thomas, why are you like this?! And just in case you weren't already revolted by his behavior, let me point out that Thomas also said that Meghan and Harry are turning the royal family "into a Walmart with a crown on," whatever that means. Can people please just stop giving this guy air time already?
