First came one member of the Markle family publishing a book about a “pushy princess”. Then came the ex-husband producing a television series about a divorcee marrying a British Royal. There was Meghan Markle’s half-brother, Thomas Markle Jnr who accused her of forgetting her roots. And just recently, Markle’s nephew developed a strain of cannabis named “Markle Sparkle” for the Royal wedding. Yes, the 37-year-old actress and soon-to-be newest member of the Royal family – and her estranged family –  have been the subject of tabloid fodder for some time.

Now, Thomas has taken another swipe at his sister in a recent handwritten letter to the Prince in US publication In Touch. In it, he labels Markle as a “jaded, shallow, conceited woman that will make a joke of you and the royal family heritage.”

“As more time passes to your royal wedding, it became very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history,” the 51-year-old wrote. “Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.”

“I’m confused why you don’t see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees,” he continued. “Meghan’s attempt to act the part of a princess like a below C average Hollywood actress is getting old.”

“What kind of person starts out by using her own father until he’s bankrupt, then forgets about him in Mexico leaving him broke, over mostly all her debts. And when it’s time to pay him back she forgets her own father like she never knew him. “It’s very apparent that her tiny bit of Hollywood fame has gone to her head. Not to mention, to top it all off, she doesn’t invite her own family and instead invites complete strangers to the wedding. Who does that? You and the royal family should put an end to this fake fairytale wedding before it’s too late.”

In the conclusion of the letter, Thomas somewhat switches his tune to acknowledge the importance of family. “Meghan is still my sister. She is family. So whatever happens is up to her, whether she wants to forget knowing me or the rest of her family, family comes first. Also, you would think that a royal wedding would bring a torn family closer together, but I guess we’re all distant family to Meg.”
