Looks like it isn't Meghan Markle's new role in the British royal family that has driven a wedge between her and her father, Thomas Markle apparently has a long history with familial disappointment.
Sources close to the Duchess of Sussex have recalled that her father has been an absentee for far longer than the world may have thought. “Behaviour like his doesn’t happen overnight. Why do you think her parents got divorced in the first place?” the source said, according to News.com.au.
It made international headlines when Thomas Markle was un-invited to his daughter's wedding in May, however, it looks like this wasn't the first special day he missed. When Meghan Markle married Hollywood movie producer Trevor Engelson in Jamaica in 2011, her father was missing as well.
“Meghan’s had to deal with a lot of self-esteem issues growing up with a narcissist. She has tools to cope with emotional blackmail. She does pray for him," the source continued. “That’s Meghan. She does not have a bad bone in her body, but she’s not falling for her dad’s crocodile tears. She’s been down that road far too many times before.”
Since his time in the spotlight, Thomas Markle has done countless interviews and had a multitude of photo opportunities. Now, the disowned father is apparently starting his own men's clothing line.
