Think your in-laws are trifling? Just imagine how Prince Harry feels. Meghan Markle's pops Thomas Markle has given one cringe-worthy interview after the next, letting too much information slip about his newly royal daughter and ostracizing himself from the palace as he goes along. And in his latest stunt, the duchess' dad went on to speculate about the babies she and Prince Harry will have. At this point, even Chrissy Teigen has had enough of the interview-happy pops — but first, a bit of context.
Speaking to Mail on Sunday on July 28, the Mexico resident said: "What's sad is that some time in the next year Meghan and Harry will have a baby and I'll be a grandfather, and if we're not speaking I won't see my grandchild. How tragic is that, to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the Royal Family?"
In the nine-hour (!) interview, Mr. Markle also took full credit for his daughter's success, and shaded his ex-wife Doria in the process. "Oh, she's a mommy's girl now and Doria gets a lot of the credit," he said. "But Meghan seems to have forgotten that she lived with me up until Doria and I divorced, when she was six, and even then I was still a big part of her life. Whenever she finished school, I was the one who picked her up because I didn't have to be at the studios until late and would then work until midnight. When Meghan was 11, she moved back in with me up until she was 17 and went to college. I was having my good years then, making good money, and could afford to give her the best, with a good school, good education, good home. She became the woman that she is today thanks to everything I did for her."
Well! Though Prince Harry wouldn't defy royal protocol to fire back, Teigen has no such rules to adhere to. Retweeting headlines from Mr. Markle's interviews, the Cravings author wrote: "This guy sucks."
No sooner had Teigen let out the Tweet than Meghan's half-sister Samantha Grant came to her dad's defense. On Twitter, Grant wrote "@christinetiegen": "So this pudgy airhead [Chrissy Teigen] Who knows nobody in this family is opening her piehole? 'This guy' is our father who deserves a lot of respect ... you are the one who sucks."
Yikes! What a royal diss — but she should probably spell Chrissy's name correctly if she expects her to ever see it.
