Royal feud


I applaud the Royal Family for jumping into bed with commoners and getting hitched to them but it is learning another brutal lesson about the potential perils of marrying outside the aristocratic club. And that is the negative headlines generated by the Duchess of Sussex’s father Thomas Markle who continues to get paid for interviews to various outlets.
In his third and what he claims is his final interview with the British press (yeah, right) he spoke about hanging up on Prince Harry. He is a loose cannon who’s playing out a family feud in public.

It’s what they did with Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary Goldsmith who made headlines in the past about various wild antics. If you don’t ignore these family members they tend to get on side.
