Thomas Markle lashes out at Meghan for decision about Lilibet: ‘It really bothers me’

Thomas has spoken out in a new interview

| Updated:

Thomas Markle has criticised his daughter Meghan for ‘leaving Lilibet behind’ while she and Prince Harry attended the Invictus Games.

Earlier this month, the couple flew to the Netherlands for the event after stopping off in the UK to see the Queen.

Meghan and Harry didn’t bring Archie, two, and his 10-month-old sister to the Games – prompting Thomas to make his feelings known.

Thomas Markle interview

Speaking to GB News he said: “To fly all the way over and not bring the children. That’s ridiculous. Most mothers don’t leave a nine-month-old child behind.

“They usually hold on to that child until the child gets a little older. That’s one thing that really bothers me.”

However, GB competitor James Stride told the Mail Online at the Games: “Meghan was quite chatty and told me she was missing her children.”

Prince Harry news

Thomas isn’t the only member of the Markle family to criticise the L.A-based couple.

Meghan’s estranged sister Samantha accused Harry of “hypocrisy” after his trip to see the Queen.

The royal told NBC he wanted to make sure his grandmother was “protected” but Samantha wasn’t having any of it.

Speaking to LBC, she said: “Harry came out and said he just wants to protect the Queen, well that’s like sitting there lighting the fuse of a cannon ball and saying ‘wait, I am lighting this cannon ball here it comes, but I am protecting you.’

“It doesn’t work that way, it is such hypocrisy and the actions don’t speak as loudly as the words.”

Meghan and Harry latest

It seems like the whole world has an opinion on the Sussexes and Donald Trump is no different.

Speaking on Piers Morgan’s Uncensored show, he accused Harry of being ‘lead by the nose’ by Meghan.

He said: “I’m not a fan of Meghan, and I wasn’t from the beginning. Poor Harry is being led around by his nose. And I think he’s an embarrassment.”
