Harry’s dash to Mex­ico TO SI­LENCE MEGHAN’S DAD

He’s kept a dig­ni­fied si­lence but the prince has fi­nally had enough of Thomas Sr

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Royal News -

An em­bat­tled Prince Harry is leap­ing to the de­fence of his wife Meghan Markle amid her lat­est fam­ily drama. Woman’s Day can re­veal the royal is at his wits’ end, pre­par­ing to rush to Mex­ico in a des­per­ate bid to si­lence her fa­ther Thomas Markle af­ter his worst in­ter­view yet.

In a shock­ing sit-down with a Lon­don news­pa­per last week, Meghan’s fa­ther claimed he’s been to­tally cut off from his daugh­ter and it would be “eas­ier” if he died be­cause “ev­ery­body would be filled with sym­pa­thy for her”. He said he re­fuses to “be si­lenced” by the royal fam­ily, ripped into his ex-wife Do­ria Ragland and claimed Princess Diana “would have loathed” the way he’s been treated.

And as Meghan, who turned 37 last week, strug­gles to come to terms with her fa­ther’s bit­ing words, Harry, 33, is an­gry and no longer able to sit in si­lence as his fam­ily and the love of his life are slan­dered in the press. He’s plan­ning to go against royal pro­to­col and si­lence Meghan’s dad once and for all.

“Harry is ex­tremely pro­tec­tive of Meghan and has been ever since they first started dat­ing. He knows this has been a huge ad­just­ment for her and she’s been un­der a lot of scru­tiny. But this is the fi­nal straw,” a royal in­sider says.

“Word is Harry is plan­ning a trip to Mex­ico to ad­dress the drama. He wants Thomas to back off and leave Meghan alone. It’s not the way he hoped to meet his fa­ther-in­law for the first time but he’d do any­thing for Meghan.

“She’s un­der so much pres­sure – this isn’t help­ing. She was hop­ing he’d run out of things to say and stop talk­ing about her, but it keeps get­ting worse. She’ll be en­raged her dad has dragged her mum into it now. It’s only go­ing to deepen their rift,” adds the in­sider.

“They’ve re­alised they need to do some­thing about it. Harry’s a pretty charm­ing guy and the hope is that if he talks to Thomas one-on-one, he can smooth this over and get him to back down.

"But at this point, it seems as though no mat­ter what hap­pens, it’s not go­ing to fix his re­la­tion­ship with Meghan. The dam­age is al­ready done.”

Thomas has been giv­ing bomb­shell in­ter­views about his daugh­ter.
