Meghan Markle’s estranged half-brother has written an extraordinary open letter to Prince Harry, in which he urges the groom-to-be to call off the royal wedding.
Thomas Markle Jr., who has the same father as Markle, shared his letter with In Touch magazine. His rant accuses the former actress as being a “jaded, shallow, conceited woman” who is “obviously not the right woman” for the prince.
He also says that Markle — whom he’s previously mentioned he hasn’t seen since 2011 — will make a “joke” of Prince Harry and the “royal family heritage.”
“It’s not to [sic] late, Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you,” Markle Jr. writes.
“It became very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history. … I’m confused why you don’t see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees,” he continues. “Meghan’s attempt to get the part of a princess like a below C-average Hollywood actress is getting old.”
Markle Jr. then claims that his half-sister used her father for money, leaving him “bankrupt” and “broke” over “mostly all her debts. … And when it’s time to pay him back she forgets her own father like she never knew him. My father will never recover financially from paying Meghan’s way.”
According to Markle Jr., his half-sibling hasn’t invited her own family to the wedding but has welcomed “complete strangers.” He’s calling on Prince Harry to “put an end to this fake fairytale wedding.”
And despite reports suggesting otherwise, he asserts that Markle didn’t invite their father.
But Markle Jr. ends by highlighting his familial bond to the bride.
“Meghan is still my sister,” he writes. “She is family. So whatever happens is up to her; whether she wants to forget knowing me or the rest of her family, family comes first.
“Also you would think that a proper royal wedding would bring a torn family closer together. But I guess we’re all distant family to Meg.”
He isn’t the only half-sibling to stir things up.
Samantha Grant, Markle’s older half-sister, is reportedly writing a book called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister.
That title says it all.
