There are many things about Meghan Markle’s life that make us extremely jealous: she lives in a beautiful house, she’s a duchess, she’s married to Prince Harry once considered one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, she’s gorgeous, the list could go on and on.
However, one thing that is not at all envy-inducing is the amount of Meghan’s family members who talk to the press just about every day, and they rarely have good things to say, seemingly quite bitter about their lack of invitation to the big royal wedding.
Meghan’s Uncle Speaks Out
Mike Markle, Meghan’s uncle and the older brother of her father Thomas Markle has given a truly scathing (and bitter) interview about the duchess, and didn’t hold back with his feelings.
Mike, who is an ex-diplomat, helped Meghan with her career at one point in the past. He helped get her an internship as a junior press officer at the American embassy in Argentina many years ago when she thought about working in international relations. Would it be safe to say she is most definitely working in international relations at this point?
He Thinks Meghan Has A Chip On Her Shoulder
It seems Mike has been left feeling quite bitter about Meghan’s lack of contact with the family and has said some truly scathing words about The Duchess Of Sussex.
He spoke to Woman magazine recently, saying, “Meghan has climbed socially and left us behind — that’s how I feel. I think that’s what happens when you’re ‘underclass’ and trying to rise above the reality of your situation.”
Yikes! Tell us how you really feel Mike! He’s also been keeping up with the recent headlines about the supposed rivalry between Meghan and her sister-in-law Kate Middleton.
He Believes Meghan Is Immature
He said of the supposed feud, “Coming from her background, she may have a chip on her shoulder.It could be that that’s part of the problem she’s having with her sister-in-law. Meghan is immature in some ways. I feel that because of the way she acts — not only towards family members but other people.”
Meghan has not had contact with her extended family for many years, and the only person invited to the big royal wedding was her mother Doria. Clearly, the Markle’s were not happy with this turn of events, and have let it be known in the press.
He Thinks Meghan’s Father Spoiled Her
Mike also had some things to say about his brother Thomas, Meghan’s father. He made heated claims, saying, “It could be that she’s bossy towards staff because she’s been spoiled by my brother. He doted on her a lot — more than he did his other children.”
He continued, “Tom spent more time with her and helped her in school and stuff like that. Tom has more of a rapport with her than with the rest of the kids. That’s a problem. She’s a prima donna because he treated her really well.’
Another day, another one of Meghan’s family members speaking to the press; business as usual. Meghan and Prince Harry are currently on a 6-week break from royal duties.
