Duchess Of Sussex’s Father Said She Didn’t Pay For Her College, ‘I Did And I Have The Receipts’

I don’t know what side to believe in this public spat between father and daughter.

Thomas Markle claims his daughter, Meghan, lied when she said she paid her own way through college. Thomas not only tried to defend himself publicly, he also said he has the receipts to prove it.

On Sunday, Thomas spoke to the Mail, a British online magazine, in response to the Duchess of Sussex three-minute speech to the University of the South Pacific (USP) students and staff in Suva, Fiji.

Duchess: “Everyone should be afforded the opportunity to receive the education they want, but more importantly the education they have the right to receive. When girls are given the right tools to succeed, they can create incredible futures, not only for themselves but for all of those around them.”

During her speech, she spoke about her time at Northwestern (this is the part that has her father very angry) and how it was “ONLY through scholarships, financial aid, and work-study programs — where her “earnings from a job on campus went directly towards [her] tuition” — that she was able to attend college.

That’s all well and good but Meghan’s father said that her statement about her college finances is “completely untrue,” and that he didn’t say anything sooner because she was pregnant.

‘I’m sorry but that is completely untrue. I paid every penny of her tuition and I have the bank statements to prove it.

‘I paid for her trips to Spain and England. I paid for her internship in Argentina.’

For his part, Mr Markle admits it was a ‘point of pride’ to pay off his daughter’s fees even after she became an independently wealthy woman. ‘I told Meg I would pay for her education and I did. It’s what any father would do.’

Is it wrong for a father to defend himself against a narrative that makes him look bad in the public’s eye? The optics couldn’t be worse for either right now.

Meghan’s fees for Northwestern were 200,000 dollars and she said financial aid helped her get through. Her dad says, no way, I paid and I have the receipts. This break in the family playing through the media is not what anyone would desire.

Meghan’s father hasn’t been privileged to see his grandson in almost a year. He says he doesn’t want anything from the Royal Family so why is he acting like this or why are they treating him like this?

Meghan must have a reason for no contacting him which he conveniently forgets to tell anyone, anyway it’s their business.

In defense of Thomas, it is extremely painful for a parent to endure an estrangement from a child who was once close. Your emotions vacillate between anger and extreme sadness. It is a loss that feels like a death. I don’t think Meghan will ever forgive her father for what she perceives to be a public betrayal at the most important time in her life, which was her marriage into the royal family and the start of her new career.

Her father made mistakes, but he was under extraordinary pressure with little support. This emptiness and loss must be something he will grieve for the rest of his life. I hope he can come to grips with this because I don’t think she will ever reach out to him again. Good luck.

  • Megan is a user; she will run over anyone she can including her father; she has already done do with the royal family and Harry is next. She is a liar and will step over anyone who gets in her way. She does not even let Harry hold the baby. People do not want to work for her. There is a reason. She is arrogant, selfish, greedy self serving, narcissic, absorbed only for herself and cannot follow the orders of the queen or her husband, phony flew in airplanes that used juet fuel , when she is supposed to be an enviroiminist, egotistical, manipulative, cause of break up of family relations as with Harry's brother, William, agotistical and selfish to Kate, devise, plotting and scheming to separate Harry from his family, cannot keep help as Megan is too bossy and wants everything her own way. I hope Harry divorces Megan as quickly as possible to get out of his quagmire or he will seek deeper into a sand pit

  • O. the father's side. It's o e thi g to be snobby and ungrateful now that she is high society; but it's another to publicly lie about a parent who supported her. No other person. who marries a prince would be so cold-hearted.

  • Meghan's father needs to stop putting negative comments out in public about his daughter. If this continues, he will never been allowed to meet his grandson or see his daughter again. Watch Meghan's mother and use her as an example. I have never heard Meghan's mother's voice. She stays out of the public, and only makes appearances to show support for Meghan. That's the way you need to be if you want to stay on the good side of the royal family. Pushing tabloid stories like this will just make you look trashy.

  • Am I supposed to care ? What is this even about? This is like reading about some millionaire football player complain he " feels like a slave " because the coach is bossy.
