Chrissy Teigen Slams Thomas Markle For "Embarrassing" His Daughter, The Duchess Of Sussex

Date July 30, 2018

Thomas Markle, the estranged father of the Duchess of Sussex, has been in the news lately for his far-from-savory comments about the royal family. In a new interview granted to The Mail on Sunday, the retired lighting director insisted that his daughter and the Palace are cutting him off completely.

Markle says that the phone numbers he used to contact the Duchess were no longer working. He claims that the royals are punishing him for the photo session he granted to the press before the royal wedding – an incident that caused a lot of drama.

Those numbers were disconnected, they no longer work. I have no way of contacting my daughter.


In the meantime, Chrissy Teigen seems far from pleased at the new accusations Markle raised. In a swift response to the new interview, she took to Twitter with a post of her own, calling out Markle for “embarrassing” his daughter.

Other commentators on social media are also speaking out against Markle. Some insist that a lot of information Markle is spreading is false, and find it hard reconciling his apologies with statements he made in the past about his daughter.

Among other things, Markle has expressed his concerns about the Duchess shutting him out of her life and fears he may never get to meet his grandchildren. In the meantime, the Duchess continues to enjoy a healthy relationship with her mother, Doria Ragland.

Markle bailed on attending the royal wedding at the last minute, a move that was quite upsetting to many Britons. Neither the Duchess nor any member of the royal family has made a statement about Thomas Markle or his new accusations.
