Meghan Markle’s Dad Can’t Stop Talking to the Press (People)
Thomas Markle just can’t help himself, it seems. The 73-year-old gave an interview to The Sun on Sunday, saying that he has not spoken to his daughter since the day after her wedding to Prince Harry. “The phone number I had been calling Meghan on is no longer picking up,” he said. “And I don’t have an address for her. I sent a text to my palace contact saying I would like to reach my daughter and got no reply.”

Indeed, Markle’s only contact with his daughter since the wedding has been through the pictures of her he has seen in the press, which he claims paint a grim picture of her mental state. “My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified. I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile.”

If only there was something he could do to make things easier on her. Oh, here’s and idea: shut up already!
