Meghan Markle's Dad Is Throwing Shade At The British Royal Family

He believes Meghan is not actually happy in her new role.
Meghan Markle's Dad Is Throwing Shade At The British Royal Family

Meghan Markle's dad is a bit of a unique character. Often the center of attention when it comes to Meghan news, but it's due to his lack of presence in her life, rather than his presence in it.

That said, he recently conducted a candid interview with The Sun - a U.K based publication - in which he asserted that he believes his daughter is actually miserable in her new role in the royal family.

Going so far as to say he believes his daughter is "terrified".

He sees it in her face and affected smile that she puts on for the camera. Claiming that “I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now."

Further, he maintains that he believes his daughter must feel trapped in her ridiculous new dress code and that she looks like something out of an old-timey movie; wondering why these royal women are required to constantly cover up their knees. It's 2018!

From the perspective of all the envious doe-eyed young women watching Megan enter the royal family, it's hard to believe that any woman in her position would feel anything close to "terrified" or "miserable", as Thomas Markle asserts.  In the end, Megan does have it all, on the surface-  at least.  She did marry a prince!

But when you chip away at the shiny royal facade and zoom in a little closer, you can see where Thomas Markle is coming from, and it seems like some of Megan's fans have spoken out with a similar concern.

LOOOOL I can tell when Meghan Markle is putting on a fake smile for the cameras. My girl’s tired. hang in there G. You’re doing great 💪

Every day I just more convinced that Meghan Markle is a robot

July 9, 2018

Sounds judgemental, not exactly intentional, but it just feels like Meghan Markle married and was forced to become a royal robot. Seeing her post wedding, she has like a robotic deer in headlights look on her face, a loss of Independence that you can tell.
Or something.

Looks like Thomas Markle isn't the only one that has spotted the robotic and forced smile painted on Markle's face.

In her defense, being in the constant spotlight must be emotionally and physically draining, even for a seasoned actress like her.  This level of exposure can drive even the sanest person a little crazy.

Hopefully, this is just a transition period for Markle, and her father is simply showing a normal level of parental concern and there isn't anything actually unsettling going on under the surface.
