Just weeks away from the royal wedding, Meghan’s estranged brother Thomas Markle Jnr has penned Prince Harry an extraordinary letter warning him away from his sister.
In a shock twist of events, Thomas has labelled his sister ‘jaded, shallow and conceited’, and warns Harry the marriage is a mistake – saying his sister ‘will make a joke of you and the royal heritage’.
Understandably, the prince is furious that the allegations have been made against his future wife and can’t believe that her family are attacking her this way.
The handwritten letter shared with InTouch magazine, starts with the stern words: ‘It’s not too late. Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you. As more time passes to your royal wedding, it will become very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal history.
Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you. I’m confused why you don’t see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees.
‘Meghan’s attempt to act the part of a princess like a below C average Hollywood actress is getting old.’
The 51-year-old then claims their father went bankrupt supporting Meghan’s acting dream.
‘What kind of person starts out by using her own father until he’s bankrupt, then forgets about him in Mexico leaving him 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. It’s very apparent that her tiny bit of Hollywood fame has gone to her head,’ the letter continues.
He then claims that the Suits actress didn’t even invite her father to the wedding, but invited ‘complete strangers’ and demands ‘the royal family should put an end to this fake fairytale wedding before it’s too late’.
The fuming brother ends the letter with the words: ‘Meghan is still my sister. 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 a royal wedding would bring a torn family closer together, but I guess we’re all distant family to Meg.’
The Oregon-based sibling hit out at Meghan before.
‘She’s clearly forgotten her roots. It’s torn my entire family apart. Meg likes to portray herself as a humanitarian, a people’s person and a charitable person but she is none of those things to her family,’ he told the Daily Mirror.
He also said Meghan was a ‘phoney’ and could never be like Princess Diana.
‘I’ve read that Meg wants to be like Diana. Diana was worshipped by everyone in the world. She was loved for the right reasons. That’s what Meg wants, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. She’s not genuine like Diana.’
Meghan last saw her brother in 2011 at their grandmother’s funeral and it’s believed the pair have not stayed in touch due to his troubles with the law.
This year he was jailed for two days for a drunken brawl with his fiancee, while the year prior he was arrested for the same, but with a gun involved.
