'She Left Us Behind:' Meghan Markle's Uncle Slams "Immature" And "Underclass' Duchess, Blames Her For Rift With Kate Middleton

Date November 27, 2019

Meghan Markle's family members have been pretty outspoken since it was publicly revealed that she and Prince Harry were a thing.

The most outspoken of them all has got to be Meghan's half-sister Samantha Markle who wasted no time in telling the world that the Duchess was being unfair to her family for not incorporating them into her royal life.

Thomas Markle, Meghan's father, caused some controversies as well after it was revealed that he would be unable to walk his daughter down the aisle during the royal wedding.

In general, with the exception of Meghan's own mother Doria Ragland, Meghan Markle's family members don't seem to be on her side.

Meghan Markle family drama continues as uncle lashes out

Meghan Markle's uncle was one of the most recent people to express his displeasure for the Duchess of Sussex.

80-year-old Mike Markle actually helped Meghan launched her career once upon a time. The ex-diplomat used his influence to get his niece an internship position as a junior press officer at the American embassy in Argentina.

Mike reportedly said that the Duchess has a chip on her shoulder and he called her "immature," saying:

Meghan has climbed socially and left us behind — that’s how I feel. I think that’s what happens when you’re “underclass” and trying to rise above the reality of your situation.

Mike, Thomas Markle's older brother, also touched on the reported feud between Meghan and Kate Middleton.

Coming from her background, she may have a chip on her shoulder. It could be that that’s part of the problem she’s having with her sister-in-law. Meghan is immature in some ways. I feel that because of the way she acts — not only towards family members but other people.

He accused Thomas of spoiling Meghan and said the Duchess' father is to blame for what Mike believed to be the Duchess' "bossy" behavior.

She’s a prima donna because (Thomas) treated her really well... He doted on her a lot.

In defense of Meghan Markle

Many people disagreed with Meghan Markle's uncle and took the side of the Duchess.


Her father's side of the family are all dysfunctional, good for her for leaving them behind.


Her father and her uncle expect praise for doing what fathers and uncles do for their relatives! This uncle has probably never seen his niece for 15 years or wanted to but now she's famous they're all terribly hurt that her feelings towards them hasn't suddenly changed now that she's Royal.


She's an adult and gets to choose who she has in her life... Her family are people with whom she chooses to associate, as is her right.


Lady Meghan, if you are reading this, just remember that America loves you and the vast majority of Great Britain loves you. Stay strong. You have had a tough year. We know that you will talk to your family when you're ready.

Based on some of these comments, people were generally on the Duchess' side and they felt bad for the way her family was treating her.

There's no doubt that Meghan is one of the most criticized women at this time. We imagine it can't be easy to see negative words, not just from royal fans but from people that are supposed to be family. But so far, the Duchess has been doing a great job of standing tall despite it all.
