Last year, the Duchess of Sussex encouraged the female population to strive for getting a higher education. During her royal tour with Harry, she made a touching speech where she opened up about her own experience with studying.

The Duchess noted that she knows about the struggles of being able to ‘afford the higher level of schooling’ but she added that she managed to pay for her tuition all by herself and never regretted doing so.

But did she really pay for her education?

Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, insists that his daughter was telling ‘lies’ in that speech. Mr. Markle claimed he was the one who paid ‘every penny’ of Meghan’s tuition and he has bank statements to prove his words.

He said:

I told Meg I would pay for her education and I did. It’s what any father would do.

Thomas noted he is ‘sick of being vilified’ and won’t stand the ‘lies’ his daughter said about him:

No father deserves this kind of abuse when he's been that good to his daughter. Ask anyone who knows us both.

Mr. Markle added that he is not going to stop talking to the press because he needs to ‘stand up for himself’:

I don't want anything from Meghan or Harry but I'm not going to shut up until the whole truth is out there. I will continue to contradict anything said about me that isn't true.

Thomas’ words had a massive reaction on social media

Mr. Markle's interview divided the internet: some people think the Duchess is an ‘ungrateful daughter’ while others support her.

It’s hard to tell where the real truth hides but it’s evident that Meghan’s relationship with her father is broken beyond repair.
