Not-So-Grandfather Of The Year – Why Is Thomas Markle So Desperate To Meet Archie When He Has Five Other Grandchildren He Barely Knows? – OPINION

ambush; fight back

Editors: Note: This post no longer reflects some of the views held by the writer.

Riddle me this. What kind of person demands to see their youngest grandchild when they barely know their other grandchildren? Thomas Markle Senior is who. It has never been a secret that the former lighting director favoured youngest daughter, Meghan, over his other two children, Samantha and Thomas Junior. He is also the grandfather of six grandchildren.

Just after the birth of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in May 2019, the Daily Mail reported that Thomas Markle wasn’t exactly grandfather of the year. They claimed at the time that barely knew any of his other five grandchildren. He had never met his two eldest grandchildren, Ashleigh and Chris Hale, the older children of Samantha, who are now both in their early-mid thirties.

Thomas Junior has two sons with his ex-wife Tracy Dooley, Thomas III and Tyler, who use their mother’s last name.

Finally, we come to the youngest of Thomas Snr’s grandchildren, Noel, Samantha’s youngest daughter.

Of the three younger ones, Thomas has had conversations with them but has had very little to do with any of them.

So, what does this do with Archie when he’s never even met his maternal grandfather? It has everything to do with him. Thomas demands to see him when he’s barely seen his other grandkids. He adored Meghan as she was growing up. She was his little princess, and this ultimately pissed off his older kids, which has left them bitter.

The Markle Pattern

Outside of being the grandfather of six grandchildren, he doesn’t have anything to do with, Thomas is just the beginning of a pattern that has emerged.

Roslyn, Doria and the grandkids are exempt from this pattern. This has to do with Thomas Snr and his three children. They each have a manipulative streak to get what they want, or they tend to get into trouble.

For example, Meghan is suing the newspapers in England for publishing a letter she wrote to her father and violating ‘her copyright’. However, she has created a big deal of publications writing ‘negative’ things about her and then suing them.

Thomas Jr. is outspoken about his younger sister. He even sent a letter to Prince Harry telling him not to marry Meghan. It is unclear whether the royal read the letter.

Samantha ‘suggested’ or, in other words, convinced Thomas to contact the paparazzi to make it look like he was getting ready for Meghan’s wedding for monetary gain. She also used the situation to show that she hates her sister. Who cares?

Editor’s Note: After much reflection, the writer no longer believes that Samantha Markle was responsible for the pap shot idea.

Thomas will do anything to get back into Meghan’s good graces, but he doesn’t think about how she would feel about him going to the press about her. What makes this frustrating is while he claims to love his daughter, he listens to Samantha. He doesn’t hear a word his ‘little princess’ says when she tells him not to do something.

Finally, we reach Meghan, The Duchess of Woke herself. She gets upset every time she is told ‘no’. She cries to Harry, and it is just a repeat pattern. She’s self-righteous and thinks she is god’s gift to the world.

How Could This Whole Disaster Could Be Fixed?

So, how could this whole situation between Meghan and her father end? They need to get their heads out of their asses. If Meghan were smart, she would put aside her issues with her dad and allow him to see his grandson at least once.

As for Thomas, if he wanted to be a good grandfather, he would get to know his other grandkids first before ordering Meghan to allow him to see Archie. To make it even easier, it would be simpler if he didn’t listen to his eldest daughter, given how she feels about her baby sister.

Meghan should listen to what her dad wants to say to her. She doesn’t need to agree with his views. However, if she were as close to him as she once claimed, she would at least consider a way to fix the relationship.

Unfortunately, she has ditched him just as she did her first husband and all her old friends in favour of being rich and famous.

My Thoughts

Quite honestly, I do not care about the Markles… well, most of them. I’m leaving Doria, Roslyn, and her grandkids out of this. They’re – as in Meghan, Thomas, Samantha, and Thomas Jr – a lowly bunch who only use each other and other people. If anyone who has a link to them had half a brain, they would speak out and expose them for the hypocrites they are.

Thomas does not have a right to Archie, and he was never an excellent grandfather to begin with. He should have gotten to know his other grandchildren before he started going to the press with his demands. It’s no wonder that Meghan loves a good lawsuit. She got it from her father.
