Omid Scobie reminded the public that Thomas Markle Sr. turned against his own daughter and continues to trash her in interviews.
Omid Scobie, a royal biographer, slammed Meghan Markle for failing to contact her estranged father after he suffered a major stroke. He said Thomas Markle Sr. “turned on his own daughter” so she “owes him nothing.”
The co-author of “Finding Freedom” cited several TV interviews in which the former Hollywood lighting director criticized the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
He also reminded the public of the 77-year-old collusion with paparazzi and British tabloid papers to kill his own child.
“The staged photos, and the flurry of media interviews that followed, were a poor decision but, despite reports to the contrary, are not the reason why Meghan sticks to her decision to cease communication with her father,” Scobie wrote for Yahoo News.
“Many tabloid reports these days conveniently forget that this is a man who, after providing a private letter from his daughter to the Mail on Sunday, later joined forces with the tabloid and a Kensington Palace aide to try and bring down the duchess in her court case about the illegal publication of it,” he continued.
Scobie added, “He is also a man who, after Meghan admitted to having suicidal thoughts after relentless media attacks, told a journalist: ‘Her lies are so obvious that I don’t know why she makes them or why she says them.’”
The author stated that “it’s easy” to sympathize with Thomas Srdesire .’s to meet his grandchildren “if one doesn’t know the full story.”
Scobie, on the other hand, questioned how much he cares about his grandchildren after dismissing the Sussexes’ claims that a senior royal expressed concern about Archie’s skin color.
Only last week, the former Hollywood lighting director reportedly called Lilibet’s first birthday on June 4 “trashy” because it coincides with the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Scobie also hit out at his “publicity-hungry offspring” Thomas Jr. and Samantha, who confirmed that Meghan Markle has not reached out to their father at all.
He said the duchess will continue to meet her family’s continued press interviews with silence because she owes them nothing after “tireless and failed attempts to repair their relationship.”
