Do you realize it’s been almost two full months since we’ve even talked about or thought about Thomas Markle? I had to look through our archives to be sure – mid-February was the last big kerfuffle with Toxic Thomas. He sold Meghan’s handwritten letter to the British tabloids and basically wrote himself out of the f–king narrative he was trying to push, that Meghan never contacted him or that he was so sad and aggrieved. No, the letter proved that Meghan contacted him after her wedding and gave him strict instructions for what to do and not do if he ever wanted to have a relationship with her. He lied for months. He sold her for months. And after he sold that letter, it definitely feels like there was a shift in how the British papers spoke about him and wrote about him. Meghan’s next-level chess strategy worked. But for how long?
The biggest concern is obviously that Thomas and Samantha (Meghan’s half-sister) will find ways of making nuisances out of themselves around the birth of Baby Sussex. Meghan has seemingly left room for reconciliation with Thomas at some point after the birth, so maybe that’s why he’s been so quiet. But would Meghan actually reconcile with Toxic Tom? One royal commentator says no:
A royal commentator has claimed that Thomas Markle will never see his grandchild, in an explosive new preview for TLC documentary Meghan and Harry: A Royal Baby Story, which discusses the impending birth of the royal baby. Duncan Larcombe, author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, admitted the likelihood of the Duchess of Sussex’s estranged father reuniting with Meghan when she welcomes her firstborn child with Prince Harry this spring, was low.
Discussing the impending birth of the royal baby, Larcombe says: ‘I can’t think for a moment that Thomas Markle will ever be able to meet his grandson or granddaughter.’
The clip then cuts to Samantha, who snipes: ‘You can’t hurt people like this and then turn around and flip the script and play victim’.
The thing is, I think Meghan would sincerely be open to it IF her father behaved himself and really made changes as to how he spoke to the media, or if he stopped speaking at all to the media. But I just don’t see that happening. I think that, like, three days after Meghan gives birth, Piers Morgan will be interviewing Samantha and Thomas together. So no, I don’t think Thomas will ever see this grandchild. And that’s on him.
