KEY POINTS

  • Meghan Markle's brother is worried that she's just using Prince Harry
  • Thomas Markle Jr. thinks it's possible Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would get a divorce
  • Meghan Markle could have threatened Prince Harry

Meghan Markle’s brother, Thomas Markle Jr., recently shared his thoughts on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to quit their lives as royals.

While speaking with New Idea, Thomas said that he wasn’t surprised when he heard the announcement because he knew that it was only a matter of time before the couple would quit.

Thomas said that Markle doesn’t want to be confined by rules because she wants to be able to do whatever she wants to do. However, she realized that this would be impossible if she’s part of the royal family.

As such, Thomas is speculating on the possibility of Markle putting her foot down and telling Prince Harry that she would leave with or without him.

Thomas went on to say that he’s worried the royal couple’s marriage would end in divorce. After all, the “Suits” alum has a history of using people and then leaving them without any explanation.

“I knew this was going to happen and I hope that they actually have a mutually loving relationship. I know Harry loves her so I hope it’s mutual. You know, she has a track record of using people to get to higher places and then just leaving them so I just hope it really works out with Harry and she doesn’t break his heart,” he said.

Meanwhile, Thomas also revealed that his and Markle’s father is not happy with the bombshell exit. Thomas Markle Sr. is reportedly disappointed with how his daughter just threw away probably one of the best opportunities he has ever had in life.

Thomas Jr. said that the Duchess of Sussex used their dad to get to where she is today in the same way that she used the royal family to get her status before turning her back and walking away from all of them.

Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, also threw shade at her decision last week. In an email exchange with “Kyle and Jackie O” hosts, Samantha said that she was right about the Duchess of Sussex all along.
