“That’s not parenting” Meghan Markle’s Mother Doria Ragland Finally Calls Out Her Ex-Husband for Causing Drama Before the Royal Wedding

As discussed in the docuseries Harry & Meghan, the Duchess had a tough childhood because of the separation of her parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland. Though she had an amazing bond with both her parents, the former American actress often craved a normal family with just one home. Having said that, Meghan Markle and her mother have gone from strength to strength from her childhood until now. However, the same can not be said about her father.

The Duchess and her father have drifted away following her wedding to Prince Harry. Thomas Markle’s act of staging photographs before the royal wedding created a wedge in the pure relationship. Following all the drama, the retired director of photography also gave his daughter’s wedding a miss. Over four years after the grand affair, Doria Ragland has finally reflected on her thoughts about her ex-husband’s behavior.

Meghan Markle reveals she wanted to help her father 

In the third episode of Harry & Meghan, Doria Ragland revealed that she was disappointed with Thomas Markle for joining hands with the media. She also questioned his parenting skills in the docuseries. Notably, the social worker was married to the photography director from 1979 to 1987 and they have only one child, Meghan Markle. 

“I felt sad that the media would run with this. That he would capitalize. Certainly, as a parent, that’s not what you do. That’s not parenting,” Ragland told the Netflix camera.

Further in the interaction, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed how they genuinely tried to help the latter’s father. The former American actress claimed that following the news of the photographs, the couple together called her father. They asked him if he knew about the pictures. However, following his refusal, the Duchess offered to take him out of the house as she believed that the media would swarm him. However, Thomas Markle refused any kind of help and that made Markle doubt his intentions. 

Notably, Markle’s relationship with her father has only deteriorated since her wedding. The royal prince has not met his father-in-law even once. The retired director of photography also does not look keen on improving the relations with his daughter as he keeps giving statements in the press about her.

    This is so annoying, why do people feel like they have the right to tell other people what their truth is. They weren’t happy when Megan and Harry was in England and then as soon as they left they still aren’t happy. We do love them over here in America. And for those who hated them so much yall sure do keep up with them. Leave them along.

    Meghan and Harry are upset that someone might make money off photographs and they had no control.meghan is all about being able n control to gain fame and fortune. To turn your back on your father over photos is plain mean. There are parents out there physically abusing and killing their kids. There are people getting murdered everyday. There is a war going on and we have Meghan and Harry making millions whining because life isn’t going their way. Everyone has family drama why is their lives so special? Stop letting these two make millions for doing nothing. They need to get real jobs. Kate has shown true poise and grace through all she has been through but Meghan wants everything her way. She manipulated Harry into thinking she was just like his mum. She knows what strings to pull. He is so blind he can’t see it, yet!
