This story contains discussions of a school shooting.
Meghan Markle often finds herself stuck in the middle of family drama, especially with her immediate family. Markle has struggled to maintain a healthy relationship with her father, Thomas Markle, and her siblings, but Markle’s half-brother doesn't have anything nice to say about the Duchess of Sussex.
When Meghan Markle took a surprise trip to Uvalde, Texas to pay her respects to the 19 children and two adults who lost their lives in a school shooting, she received mixed feedback. Those in Uvalde took kindly to her gestures, but her brother, Thomas Markle Jr., said, “It feels like a publicity stunt.”
Thomas Jr. feels that Meghan should’ve skipped the memorial and instead used her time to visit their father, who is recovering from a stroke. Markle's brother added, “She wants people to think she’s trying to solve things. I don’t know what her agenda is, but it’s totally wrong. It’s the most insensitive thing I’ve seen in my life.”
