As the world counts down to their first official appearance at the Invictus Games this weekend, Meghan Markle‘s big brother Thomas Markle Jr. has issued a not-so-subtle message to his potential brother-in-law, urging Prince Harry to get a move on and lock his sister down. We couldn’t agree more, Tom!
Speaking in a new interview with the Daily Mail, the 51-year-old from Grants Pass, OR weighed in on his half-sister’s world-famous romance. “I hope Prince Harry proposes. She’s a hot commodity right now — he better get on it,” he explained. “I do have a sense of pride in Meghan being successful. It was just obvious from day one that she was destined to be somewhere really big.”
According to Life & Style, the Suits star and Harry are already planning their wedding but had to postpone the event due to Kate Middleton’s recent pregnancy news. However, Meghan’s brother said his famous sibling will be ready for her wedding at any time. “She’s always been a princess. She’s carried herself on that level from day one,” he revealed. Thomas also weighed in on his sibling Samantha Grant penning a tell-all book about their “pushy princess” half-sister.
“She’s going to find a way to bring the spotlight into her lap whether she has to talk bad about the entire family or Meghan or whoever,” he said of the upcoming book, apparently called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister. “She’s been this way — very negative against the whole entire family — since everybody can remember. She’s battered this whole Meghan thing since day one and she’s obviously doing this for her little flash in the pan fame and fortune. Telling the whole world about her pushy princess sister, which is just horrible [and] not even true.”
As for how he would best describe the Markle clan, Thomas summed it up when he said it’s a “cross between Married… With Children and Dexter, probably. Let’s see, probably the Dukes of Hazzard and the Simpsons versus the royal family.” Tom made headlines in January following an arrest after a drunken fight saw him allegedly threaten his girlfriend with a gun.
In an emotional and exclusive chat with Woman’s Day just days after he was released on bail, Tom fought back tears as he explained he was desperately sorry for his actions, and hoped his sister and Harry would be able to forgive him. “Meghan’s relationship with Harry has been going from strength to strength, and this drama is the last thing I wanted to happen,” Tom said. “I want to tell my sister that I’m truly sorry from the bottom of my heart.” Something tells us this latest rogue interview may not bode well for landing those coveted wedding invites.
