Meghan Markle Has Some Seriously Strict Rules To Follow Now That She"s A Duchess!

Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry [...] Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry & Meghan Will Visit Thomas Markle In Mexico! In fact, there are all sorts of royal rules Miz Markle is now required to follow as a member of the Windsor family. We're being completely serious. Not only is Meghan's style now dictated by royal decree, but also the way she walks and talks. For a breakdown of all the royal restrictions, be sure to proceed (below)... 1. Under no circumstance is Meghan to take a selfie. It's said that the 36-year-old Duchess once told a fan that she and Harry are "not allowed to do selfies." Apparently, this rule is meant to encourage commoners to make eye contact and conversation with the royals. 2. As selfies are a no-no, so is personal social media usage. As you surely know, all news regarding Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton comes from the Kensington Royal Twitter and Instagram pages. Thus, ahead of her marriage into the family, Markle had her IG and lifestyle blog go dark. 3. Meghan is to keep her signature to herself. NO AUTOGRAPHS! In order to prevent forgery, the Suits alum is not allowed to sign any autographs. 4. Dark and/or colored nail polish is prohibited. This explains why Meghan wore Essie's Ballet Slippers pink polish at the wedding. Oh, and it's also Queen Elizabeth's favorite color. 5. Royals must ALWAYS travel with mourning clothes. This rule was instated after the then Princess Elizabeth and husband Prince Philip were blindsided by King George VI's death while abroad in Africa. The twosome were forced to travel from Africa to the United Kingdom in regular clothes. Nowadays, royals must always have a set of funeral clothes packed in order to be respectful. 6. No matter what occasion, female family members must always curtsy to the Queen. At official events, Meghan is also expected to curtsy to anyone who outranks her. 7. Short hemlines are a no-go! It's believed that the Queen disapproves of skirts that are more than an inch or two above the knee. So Meghan better toss out those tiny red carpet numbers from her Hollywood days. 8. Speaking of Hollywood, Meghan seemingly can no longer pursue an acting career. She represents the British people now, so she has an image to uphold (and we doubt an acting gig in Tinseltown will help with that). 9. Meghan is discouraged from voting in British elections. Although UK Parliament says that it's not against the law in Britain for royalty to vote, it's viewed to be unconstitutional. 10. Markle can no longer cross her legs -- in public, at least. She'll be expected to perfect the "Duchess Slant" made famous by Princess Diana and proudly carried on by the Duchess of Cambridge. 11. Meghan will have to throw away her wedges, as the Queen despises them! 12. Assigned seating for life! At any royal family gathering, Meghan will always be expected to sit next to husband Harry. 13. Dinnertime is at 8:30 pm! When dining with Harry's monarch grandmother, Meghan will have to be ready at 8:30 pm to eat. The meal will last no later than 10 pm. 14. Also, Meghan isn't allowed to eat before OR after the Queen. Guests dining with the Queen can't start eating until the monarch begins chowing down. However, once she is done, so is the rest of the dinner table. 15. Meghan can't just walk into a royal room. During family functions, there's a strict entrance line, which is as follows: Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Duchess Camila, Prince William, Duchess Kate, and then most likely, Harry and Meghan. 16. If the Queen's awake, so is Meghan! If Meghan crashes with Queen Elizabeth at all, she is required to stay up until the longtime royal falls asleep. 17. Monopoly has been banned! Supposedly, the Duke of York Prince Andrew previously revealed that the royals are "not allowed to play Monopoly at home," as "it gets too vicious." 18. In order to avoid food poisoning, Meghan can no longer enjoy shellfish. Now, not EVERYONE in the royal family adheres to this rule, but the Queen still does!! Man, oh man. We hope Meghan has this list memorized!! We're wishing her only the best as she embarks on her new royal life! [Image via WENN.].....»»

OK.’ ‘Of course, we’ll have to call him “H” so no one knows we’re talking about Harry,’” Thomas said. He then spoke about Prince Harry asking for permission to marry the now-Duchess of Sussex. “Actually, Meghan told me first…then the few times after that, Harry got on the phone with Meghan, they called me together, and Harry asked for her hand over the phone and I said, ‘You’re a gentleman. Promise me you’ll never raise your hand against my daughter, and of course I give you my permission,” Thomas continued.

Thomas Markle Says Meghan Markle "Cried" About Him Not Being Able To Walk Her Down The Aisle!

This time, Thomas Markle went on U.K.'s Good Morning Britain early Monday to talk about how upset his daughter and Prince Harry were that he was unable to walk her down the aisle a month ago at the royal wedding due to health concerns. Related: Meghan Markle Is Still Learning The Royal Ropes! Thomas told the outlet: "They were disappointed. Meghan cried, I'm sure — she did cry — and they both said, ‘Take care of yourself, we are really worried about you.' They said the important thing is that I get better." While he was "honored" that Prince Charles stood in for him, he explained: "I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle ... Everybody was watching my daughter and I couldn't have been more proud. And like I said, how could I ask for a better replacement than Charles? I just wish it could have been my hand holding my daughter's not his, but I think he was wonderful for doing it." Thomas went on to add that he feels like a "footnote" in history and that this has been a very emotional process for him: "The unfortunate thing for me now is I'm a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history rather than the dad walking her down the aisle. That upsets me somewhat. It was a very emotional moment for me, like I said, I cried about it. I wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle. I wanted that moment. But I'm thankful for everything the way it went. I was very proud. I was very upset that it wasn't me but the whole world was watching my daughter. I was very happy about that." Hate to tell you... but this wasn't your moment, bb. When chatting about the Duke of Sussex, Thomas called him a "great, he's an interesting guy" and revealed how Harry asked to marry Meghan: "Harry asked for her hand over the phone and I said: ‘You're a gentleman, promise me you'll never raise your hand against my daughter and of course I will grant you my permission.'" When asked about his daughter becoming a royal, Thomas noted: "My daughter has been a princess since the day she was born." Elsewhere in the interview, Thomas talked about what Prince Harry supposedly said about Donald Trump, those staged paparazzi photos, and more. Get all the highlights (below)!! How do U think Meghan feels about Thomas' new interview?? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via ITV/Dutch Press Photo/WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle CANNOT Deal With Her Father"s Photo Staging Scandal Right Now!

UPDATE: 5:21 P.M. EST: Kensington Palace have once again released an official statement on the matter in an effort to protect Thomas Markle: "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this [...] UPDATE: 5:21 P.M. EST: Kensington Palace have once again released an official statement on the matter in an effort to protect Thomas Markle: "This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation." Is this the only way Meghan can defend her dad's honor? With Royal decree?? You'd think someone with a future of nothing but press photos would understand her father wanting some good publicity. But alas, Meghan Markle is "upset and disturbed" by Thomas Markle getting caught apparently staging photos with a paparazzi less than a week before she's set to wed Prince Harry. Related: Lifetime's Harry & Meghan Movie Was Absurd! A source told Us Weekly that while Meghan is bothered by the antics of her father, she has more pressing matters at the moment, explaining: "Meghan is upset and disturbed by the entire ordeal and just wants to move past it. She doesn't want to let anything ruin her day and is trying to keep focus on the weekend." She has enough to worry about! We mean, who's going to sit at the Spice Girls' table during the reception!? We're stressed just thinking about it. The insider added that Meghan's relationship with her father "has always been strained" because of "his ill thought-out decisions and his lack of responsibility." As we reported, Thomas was spotted arriving at a cafe in Mexico with a photographer named Jeff Rayner. The two were seen working together to find a good angle to take a picture of the 73-year-old sitting at a computer reading a news story about Meghan and his future son-in-law. Video: Meghan's Family Is THE WORST! After the scandal broke, Meghan's half sister Samantha Markle took responsibility for setting it up -- a development the source says "wasn't a surprise to Meghan at all." The insider continued: "Meghan is disappointed that her father hasn't spoken up and stopped his children from trashing her in the press. Instead, she sees his collaboration with Samantha, who Meghan feels he is much closer to, and it hurts her." Thomas later opened up to TMZ about his decision, insisting he just wanted a photo of himself in the press where he didn't look like an uncultured slob. He even claimed he was so embarrassed, he wouldn't be attending the wedding! If Thomas' intentions were truly just to look presentable, we do hope Meghan thinks about issuing a pardon.

Meghan Markle & Her Father Have Had Their "Ups & Downs" — But They"re In A "Good Place Now"!

As you likely saw, last week, Kensington Palace confirmed that Thomas Markle Sr. WILL be present at Prince Harry and Meghan's nuptials on May 19. In fact, the cinematographer will even walk the Suits actress down the aisle at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel. Related: Madame Tussauds NAILS New Waxwork Of Meghan! This update completely contradicts the scathing letter written by half brother Thomas Markle Jr., who claimed the 36-year-old was estranged from their shared poppa and didn't invite the Markle patriarch to her wedding. While things have been complicated between Thomas Sr. and Meghan in the past, it appears that the twosome aren't currently estranged. An insider confirmed this to be true, as they spilled to People: "Meghan loves her dad. Like any father-daughter relationship, there have been ups and downs over the years. But they are in a good place now." Mr. Markle, who worked as a lightening designer on shows like Married…With Children and General Hospital, got divorced from Meghan's mom Doria Ragland in the '80s. He lives away from the limelight, thanks to a quiet life in Mexico. Nonetheless, Thomas Sr. wasn't absent from Meghan's life during her fundamental years, as a former Immaculate Heart classmate revealed: "...her dad was such a sweetheart. He did the sets for our plays, which was a huge thing for us, and he would volunteer his time even after Meghan graduated. She was close with her parents. They were affectionate." As for the her brother's claims that her desire for fame has left the elder Thomas destitute?? The first source defended: "She's been supportive of him in every way, including financially. She has paid many of her father's bills over the years." It sounds like Meghan's half sibling was stirring up trouble for attention. We're glad everything is settled, as Harry is slated to meet Thomas Sr. for the first time in the days to come. Mr. Markle will also be introduced to Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles of Wales, Duchess Camilla of Cornwall, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. Harry has already become acquainted with Doria, as she even joined the love birds at the Invictus Games in Toronto in September. Hopefully, no other estranged relatives attempt to spoil Meghan and Harry's big day. Nine days, everyone!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

The Duchess of Sussex's biological father asserts in a damning new interview with The Daily Mail that he won't stop pursuing Meghan even if the royal fam has completely cut him off from his daughter. Related: Meghan Totally Approves Of Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra's Engagement! Speaking to the publication, Markle said about being cut off (below): "I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off." Hmmm.. And Thomas reveals he has thought about mailing Meghan things, too, though it's unlikely they'd get to her: "I thought about sending it by Priority Mail Express, but the Palace would probably just soak it in water for three days to make sure it doesn't explode." Uhhh... OK! Related: Meghan's Sister Defends "Cashing In" On The Duchess' Fame That's not the weirdest part, though -- Thomas clearly has a bone to pick about getting perhaps locked out of seeing his grand child at some point next year or soon thereafter (below): "[It would be] easier for Meghan if I died. Everyone would be filled with sympathy for her. But I hope we reconcile. I'd hate to die without speaking to Meghan again. What's sad is that some time in the next year Meghan and Harry will have a baby and I'll be a grandfather. And if we're not speaking, I won't see my grandchild. How tragic is that—to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the Royal Family?" Wow! And later, he turned the whole thing into a pity party, criticizing Meghan for not properly thanking him for the way he raised her (below): "They want me to be silent, they want me to just go away. But I won't be silenced. I refuse to stay quiet. What riles me is Meghan's sense of superiority. She'd be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today. Everything that Meghan is, I made her. And did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn't even speak to me now. How cold is that?" Yikes... Not good. Related: The ULTIMATE Royal Quiz! And also not done! How about invoking Princess Diana's name in this whole mess for Thomas, too (below): "[The Royal Family] have Meghan treating her father in a way that Harry's mother, Princess Diana, would have loathed. That's not what Diana stood for. Princess Diana is credited with changing the Royal Family, but she wasn't perfect. She was still very much one of them. I think Meghan's the one who'll bring them into the 21st Century, if they'll let her." Wow... Controversial, to say the least!!!! What do U think, Perezcious readers?!

Photos: Meghan & More Celebs Who Quit Acting! As you surely know, Miz Markle was originally supposed to be escorted by her reclusive father. However, after a scandal involving the paparazzi and an urgent health scare, the Hollywood cinematographer announced that he was unable to attend the royal wedding. While Mr. Markle encouraged Meghan to hand mother Doria Ragland his wedding duties, it appears that Princess Diana's ex husband has stepped up to take on the role. The palace issued the following on the update: "Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George's Chapel on her Wedding Day. The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way." An update on the #RoyalWedding: pic.twitter.com/wfJ6ZFyzHi — Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) May 18, 2018 The show must go on, right?? Still, it sounds like the Suits star is truly touched by Charles' willingness to participate. A royal insider spilled to People: "It was Meghan's wish and she is grateful for the Prince of Wales to be doing it." Awwwwww. It's said that, during the earlier part of the procession, Meghan will be escorted by just her bridesmaids and page boys (which includes Prince George and Princess Charlotte). Once the American actress reaches the Quire, she'll be greeted by Prince Charles and brought to royal bridegroom Prince Harry. We honestly think it's wonderful that the 69-year-old Prince of Wales is doing this for Meghan, especially since this isn't his first royal wedding! Squee!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Bethenny Frankel Boasts That She Once Dated Meghan Markle"s Ex-Husband!

Talk about six degrees of separation! It seems that future royal Meghan Markle has something in common with Real Housewives of New York queen Bethenny Frankel.

On Monday, during her [...] Talk about six degrees of separation! It seems that future royal Meghan Markle has something in common with Real Housewives of New York queen Bethenny Frankel. Apparently, the Skinnygirl founder once dated the Suits alum's first husband, Trevor Engelson. What a small world! Related: Meghan Will Pay Tribute To Princess Diana During Her Wedding! On Monday, during her chat with Australia's Kyle and Jackie O Show, Miz Frankel revealed her connection to Prince Harry's fiancée. The Bravolebrity spilled: "I met this guy as a romantic interest. His name is Trevor. I met him in Chicago and we were supposed to go out, and I ended up seeing him one time and he'd been texting me. He's a producer in L.A. He told me that he was married before. He's divorced [now]. He was married to this girl named Meghan Markle from the TV show Suits." At the time of this encounter, Bethenny knew very little about Meghan and had NO idea what Markle's future would entail. However, once Meghan and Harry's engagement was confirmed, Frankel had no qualms with shooting Trevor a text. Per the reality TV vet, she texted Markle's ex: "Holy shit! Your ex is going to be a princess. Is that crazy?" Sadly, the 47-year-old didn't reveal how Engelson responded to this quip. Although, if the gossip about the way Meghan ended her first marriage is true, we're sure Trevor wasn't THRILLED to learn that Meghan totally upgraded her romantic life. As for Bethenny and Trevor's relationship?? It sounds like they were destined to be business partners, rather than lovers. She continued: "He pitched me a TV show idea to produce together about a bunch of businesswomen, which I think we are going to do." Very cool. On why she didn't pursue a relationship with Markle's former flame, the New York native revealed that Trevor looks "a little bit like [her] ex." The businesswoman explained: "He looks a little bit like my ex, which scares me. We bypassed the romantics and went into the business. But I don't know there's something there. There's something salacious about doing a TV project with Meghan Markle's ex." Too funny. We're sure Meghan is unbothered by Trevor's past interest in Bethenny, as she's landed herself quite the royal bachelor!! [Image via Rob Rich/WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle's dad is back in the public eye after commenting on how his daughter looks "terrified" in recent public outings as a member of the royal family, alongside both Prince Harry and Kate Middleton. Related: Meghan Lands On This Week's Best-Dressed List! Speaking to The Sun in an on-camera interview (video below), Thomas Markle reveals his thoughts about what he believe is really going through Meghan's head when she's spotted out in public as a member of the royal family: "My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified. 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. This one isn't even a stage smile—this is a pained smile. 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." Uhhh... Thomas also believes that he's being shunned by his own daughter, and the royal family, after the scandal in which he made money from those stupid staged pictures down in Mexico. Related: Friends Say Meghan Is Doing Amazing With New Life! Markle said (below): "Anyone who makes a profit off the royal family becomes shunned. The royal family is living by rules that are outdated. Half of Great Britain seems to make a fortune selling pictures of my daughter and her husband. Are they shunned?" Uh, OK then. Here's more of Thomas, in his own words on video (below), explaining how there is no way for him to contact his daughter: What do U think, Perezcious readers?!

Source Now Claims Meghan Markle"s Dad FAKED His Heart Attack To Get Out Of The Royal Wedding!

The Markles should get their own season on The Crown, because this is some Netflix-caliber family drama. As you likely remember, Thomas Markle months ago pulled out of Meghan Markle's wedding at the last minute due to an alleged health crisis. Now, a source is claiming his heart attack and surgery was all a hoax! Related: Meghan [...] The Markles should get their own season on The Crown, because this is some Netflix-caliber family drama. As you likely remember, Thomas Markle months ago pulled out of Meghan Markle's wedding at the last minute due to an alleged health crisis. Now, a source is claiming his heart attack and surgery was all a hoax! Related: Meghan Has Found 'Certain Rules' Of Being A Royal 'Difficult' An insider close to the Duchess of Sussex says her 73-year-old father wasn't actually sick and faked an emergency operation so he wouldn't have to attend the royal wedding. Wait, what!? The source told DailyMail.com: "The whole story about Meghan's father undergoing heart surgery was made up. He had to come up with a good enough reason not to attend her wedding and avoid any further embarrassment after those staged photos went public." Really? The man who so desperately wants to be a part of the royal family purposely missed the opportunity to hand off his daughter to Prince Harry? We find that a bit hard to believe. Photo: Kate Middleton & Meghan Cheer On Serena Williams! However, the source claims that Thomas also faked his illness to win back the public's sympathy after taking those staged photos in Mexico, continuing: "The poor health story was his way of generating some compassion from the public, and taking the attention off those staged photos which were a complete embarrassment to Meghan and the royal family." As for how Meghan feels about all this, the source claimed: 'Of course Meghan is upset with him. Her father missed her wedding. He missed walking her down the isle all because of that ill-conceived publicity stunt." A publicity stunt that's making Thomas look like the victim. When really, the source adds, y'all should be feeling sorry for his Duchess daughter: 'It was really just such poor judgement on [Thomas'] part. Now everyone's feeling sorry for him. They shouldn't. He brought this upon himself and if he were truly sick Meghan would have made an effort to visit him. Don't feel sorry for him. If anything, feel sorry for Meghan." Or don't feel sorry for either of them! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle "Lives In Fear" Of Her Father!

Poor Meghan Markle. We can't believe we're feeling sorry for someone who just married Prince Harry, but parental problems SUCK! Thomas Markle says he won't shut up until his daughter speaks to him, but it's going to the press that's keeping her away!

We can't believe we're feeling sorry for someone who just married Prince Harry, but parental problems SUCK! Thomas Markle says he won't shut up until his daughter speaks to him, but it's going to the press that's keeping her away! Related: Source Claims Meghan Markle's Dad FAKED His Heart Attack According to a source spilling to Us Weekly: "Meghan is so upset over Thomas. She's upset for a couple of reasons. She doesn't even know how to communicate with her dad without knowing he won't exploit her. She lives in fear that he'll leak their communication. If he's spoken this much already, why wouldn't he leak their conversation?" Oof. How can she reach out when he's got the press on speed dial? Just stop talking already! The source says Meghan "cares about her dad" and "would like to speak to him." Unfortunately: "There is no trust there anymore. And it doesn't seem like it could ever be rebuilt. The damage is done." So sad. We imagine he won't be part of her homecoming itinerary... [Image via David Sims/WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle"s Sister SHUTS DOWN Prince Harry"s Claim The Royals Are The Family "She"s Never Had"!

Meghan Markle may've won over the royals, but Prince Harry has already pissed off the actress' extended fam. As we previously reported, while guest editing for BBC Radio 4's Today, the ginger prince gushed about how his famous family "loved" having his American fiancée join them at Christmas. However, the 33-year-old's remarks weren't drama free as he [...] Meghan Markle may've won over the royals, but Prince Harry has already pissed off the actress' extended fam. As we previously reported, while guest editing for BBC Radio 4's Today, the ginger prince gushed about how his famous family "loved" having his American fiancée join them at Christmas. However, the 33-year-old's remarks weren't drama free as he unintentionally offended the Markles when he implied that the Windsors were the family Meghan's "never had." Video: A Breakdown Of Who's Who In The Royal Fam Specifically, on how Meghan adapted to the royals' holiday traditions, Prince William's bro shared: "She's done an absolutely amazing job, she's getting in there and it's the family that I suppose she's never had." Unsurprisingly, Meghan's press friendly half-sister, Samantha Markle, has already hit back at the prince's snub. On Wednesday, the other Miz Markle noted on Twitter: She has a large family. She always did. Our dad is amazing and completely self sacrificing. We made it so that she had two houses. How fun it was! — Samantha Markle (@SamanthaMGrant) December 27, 2017 Oh snap! Samantha didn't stop there though. While defending the extended Markle fam, she also made time to plug her upcoming memoir, The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister. She shared: Actually she has a large family who were always there with her and for her. Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses. No one was estranged ,she was just too busy. Read my book complete with facts and photos — Samantha Markle (@SamanthaMGrant) December 27, 2017 Meg's family(our family) is complete with sister, brother,aunts, uncles, cousins, and the glue of our family, our amazing completely self-sacrificing father. She always had this family,..Marrying merely extends it. — Samantha Markle (@SamanthaMGrant) December 27, 2017 We mean, technically, Samantha isn't in the wrong. Still, clapping back at her sister's princely fiancé isn't securing her a spot on the wedding invite list. What do YOU think?? Was Harry tactless with his comment?? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!

Meghan Markle"s Half-Sister Rips Her Apart In Unhinged Twitter Rant, Says "If Our Father Dies" She"ll Hold The Duchess Responsible…

Poor Meghan Markle. First, her dad Thomas Markle sold her down the river (again) because he decided he can't stop doing media/TV interviews (again) about their family, even though it's literally the only thing keeping him from continuing to have a relationship with his now-royal daughter. And now, Meghan's own half-sister Samantha Markle (also known as Samantha [...] Poor Meghan Markle. First, her dad Thomas Markle sold her down the river (again) because he decided he can't stop doing media/TV interviews (again) about their family, even though it's literally the only thing keeping him from continuing to have a relationship with his now-royal daughter. And now, Meghan's own half-sister Samantha Markle (also known as Samantha Grant) is going after the Duchess on Twitter because of it!! Oh Lord, this poor woman's family... Photo: Kate Middleton & Meghan Cheer On Serena Williams! In a series of reported tweets to her private Twitter account on Tuesday, Samantha went on a diatribe against Meghan's behavior towards Thomas over icing him out... and she also held Meghan personally responsible if Thomas died. Like, seriously, Samantha? WTF?! Ch-ch-check out screenshots of the tweets (below): Yeah.... First off, nothing like tweeting AT the royal family when you have a locked account and you (should) know they can't see your tweets. Get a clue!? But more importantly, WHAT. THE. FUCK. Can't help but feel bad for Meghan, who hasn't appeared to have asked for any of this brutal, self-serving, immature behavior from her family. Ugh. [Image via Twitter/John Rainford/WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle"s First Name Isn"t Really Meghan??

It's actually Rachel Meghan Markle. We assume like many actors, she chose to tweak her handle for more star power. Meghan Markle does have a nice ring to it (and speaking of rings, after the Royal Wedding she'll also be known as the Duchess of Sussex!). Funny enough, she couldn't escape the moniker as she played a character named Rachel on the USA hit Suits. Life is funny like that sometimes.

Meghan Markle Is "Still Hurt" & Hasn"t Spoken With Her Father In "More Than 10 Weeks"

Meghan Markle just celebrated her 37th birthday, is adjusting to her life as a royal, and has been elevating her closet, along with her life in every way possible. But one thing still remains clear — she hasn't spoken to her father Thomas Markle. Related: Meghan's Father Accuses The Royal Family Of Cutting Him OFF! Here's what one [...] Meghan Markle just celebrated her 37th birthday, is adjusting to her life as a royal, and has been elevating her closet, along with her life in every way possible. But one thing still remains clear -- she hasn't spoken to her father Thomas Markle. Related: Meghan's Father Accuses The Royal Family Of Cutting Him OFF! Here's what one ET source had to say about the status of the dad-daughter relationship: "She has not spoken to her father in more than 10 weeks since her wedding and is still hurt by her father, who has both staged the photos and continues to give paid interviews. The Palace is at a loss of what to do and is re-evaluating options, including a more aggressive strategy to stem the embarrassment caused by Meghan's dad, half-sister and half-brother." Luckily, the actress-turned-royal does have her new father-in-law to lean on: "Meghan has established a particularly warm relationship with her father-in-law and Prince Charles adores his new daughter-in-law. He pulled out all the stops at Harry and Meghan's wedding and Meghan was grateful to him for showing such generosity and support when her father pulled out of the wedding last minute." Well, there's nothing like a summer getaway with your non-drama filled side of the family to take your mind off of things for a bit! The insider continues: "Meghan's looking forward to spending time in the Scottish Highlands. [Prince] William, Kate [Middleton] and the kids [Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis] are also due to visit the Queen for their annual visit to her summer home. The vacation is filled with barbecues, hiking, and shooting, although it is unclear if Meghan will learn the sport that Kate has picked up from various visits." What do U guys think? How would U handle this? Let us know in the comments below! [Image via WENN.].....»»
