Cape Town - Buckingham Palace has reportedly held a number of emergency meetings to discuss how to handle Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle.
ICYMI, Thomas has dragged the British royal family as well as his daughter in a number of recent interviews, saying they have completely cut him off and he will not be silenced until he gets a response.
Now, according to Mirror, palace advisors have held at least “three top-level crisis meetings” to come up with a plan on how to stop the retired lighting director from causing any more damage to the royal name.
An insider told the publication that there are three options on the table:
1. “Meghan could contact her father straight away and appeal to him directly to ask him to stop hurting her, but right now she’s decided to cut him off.”
2. “There is a possibility an intermediary could meet with him and appeal to him to stop making such hurtful statements.”
3. “The final option would be for Meghan to cut him off completely in the hope he will stop, but the situation is so precarious no one knows when that would be.”
Royal commentator Phil Dampier told Daily Mail that the situation is getting so out of control that Queen Elizabeth herself may step in and take charge.
“This is getting out of control. If this carries on I wouldn't be surprised if the Queen herself gets involved and bangs a few heads together.”
This comes after it was reported that the Duchess of Sussex is turning to her sister-in-law, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge for support.
