Tom Bower explains Meghan Markle’s relationship with her family, claiming that her career and marriage to Prince Harry changed her.
The royal biographer stated that his book, which will be released next year, will “tell the truth” about the Duchess of Sussex. It will show what she was like when she was younger and after she landed the role of Rachel Zane in the hit show “Suits.” He stated that he has been conducting research and watching interviews with her family in order to gain an insight into her life before Hollywood.
The 75-year-old British writer explained Meghan Markle’s relationship with her father, Thomas Markle Sr, as “odd” because they “had a very different relationship growing up, they were really very close.” He said that “she was really family-orientated when she was younger.”
That appears to have changed, and she “seems to have completely erased memories of that and disowned him.” Bower also discussed the former actress’ ex-husband Trevor Engleson, with whom she was married for nine years. After their divorce, he reportedly told Andrew Morton, author of “Meghan: A Hollywood Princess,” that she made him feel “like a piece of something stuck to the bottom of her shoe”
“The whole situation is odd, and it’s all the more strange considering how Meghan was in her younger years. From what I can see, she became a completely different person when her career began taking off when she joined [US drama] ‘Suits’ and when she began dating Harry,” Bower told Closer magazine.
“…Similarly, she cut off her ex-husband when her career started taking off. She seems to me to be a very ambitious, unforgiving person,” he added.
Bower, who also wrote the 2018 book “Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion, and Defiance of Prince Charles,” said the Duchess of Sussex “needs to stop the men from her past” from spilling her dirty secrets. He cited her father Thomas, who he believes is “keeping some things back and that he has a lot of embarrassing stuff on her.”
“But I think, much to her dismay, more will come out..” the royal writer continued. “So if she wants this to stop, she needs to communicate. It’s what should have been done years ago; Meghan should have communicated with her father, in person or over the phone. She seems to be hoping he’ll just go away, but he won’t!”
Bower also advised Prince Harry and Meghan Markle against alienating their families in order to protect their children, Archie and Lilibet. He said the couple will eventually realize that they have made a “poisonous choice” and one that will “cause more damage to them in the future when their children grow up with no family around them.”
