The Queen reportedly became frustrated when Meghan Markle refused to make amends with her father.
Revenge: Meghan, Harry, and the War Between the Windsors, the new book by biographer Tom Bower with the dramatic title, is soon to be released, and it is pretty much jam-packed with shocking revelations. The book details the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, whose build-up was fairly dramatic due to Meghan’s father Thomas Markle.
Prince Charles led Meghan down the aisle, while Thomas decided not to attend the ceremony. Senior royals reportedly had a “conference” later to try to convince Meghan to patch things up with Thomas. Which seems like a major overstepping of boundaries, but nonetheless, Prince Charles in particular was furious about the situation—and wanted Meghan to see Thomas to force him to stop talking about the royals in public.
According to Bower, who spoke to The Sun, “He had never really understood her or what she wanted.” His annoyance with Thomas Markle’s TV appearances, particularly his criticism of the Royal Family, “came to a climax” that week.
Can’t she just go visit him and put an end to this, Charles allegedly “berated” Harry and demanded. Charles “could not grasp Harry’s ‘explanations,'” Bower added. Thomas was furious that his daughter disregarded him, but Harry did not tell his father about it. Meghan reportedly declined to call Thomas Markle because she thought “his phone was not in his hands” and “his email account was hijacked,” according to Harry. Meghan’s excuses were inconsistent, which upset not only Charles but possibly even the Queen.
In the end, the Queen spoke with Meghan and Harry on the phone to discuss the problem, according to Bower: “She joined Charles in a conference call with Meghan and Harry. Charles and his mother first wanted Meghan to travel to America for a reconciliation.
However, Meghan claimed the notion was “unrealistic” because she had never visited his house in Mexico, she couldn’t guarantee a private conversation in the presence of such intense media scrutiny, and it would undoubtedly “bring additional shame to the Royal Family” (very true).
Charles, the Queen, and Meghan were reportedly “vexed” by the royals’ “refusal to openly denounce Thomas Markle” as the call came to a close.
It’s crazy to think about your father-in-law and his mother calling you and telling you to go see your father.
