While Meghan Markle has been all smiles in recent photos, her father feels that she is putting on a front for the cameras.
Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, sat down with The Sun and said he feels his daughter is not truly happy with her role as the Duchess of Sussex.
“My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified, ” he said. “I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile. I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now.”
Markle said he is concerned about his daughter and feels that she is under a lot of pressure.
“This one isn’t even a stage smile – this is a pained smile,” he continued. “That might be just having a couple of bad days. I don’t know. It really worries me. I think she’s under too much pressure. There’s a high price to pay to be married to that family.”
He was even displeased with his daughter’s dress code.
“Why in 2018 are we dressing like the 1930s? Why do they have to cover their knees?”
Markle missed the royal wedding due to having a heart attack. He was sad that he wasn’t able to walk his daughter down the aisle but was happy that Prince Charles stepped in.
I was very happy to see Prince Charles step in and walk Meghan down the aisle.
“I would love to shake his hand and thank him for that.”
Markle said he hasn’t had much contact with Meghan since the day after her wedding.
