Meghan Markle was 'shortlisted' to be the next Bond Girl

She is about to become a high-ranking member of the royal family after all, who may want to avoid any public displays of nail biting, swearing, or having a few too many drinks in front of her subjects.

However, it was his next comment that has caused a stir with Meghan's family back in the US.

"He dedicated the majority of all his time and everything to her", Thomas Jr., 51, told the Daily Mail of his dad's bond with the Suits alum, 36, in an interview published on Friday, December 29.

Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, and father, Tom Markle, divorced in 1987 when she was 5. Nearly a year later it was a place where the couple spent a very romantic holiday together visiting a luxury camp in the heart of the African country wilderness where they camped out under the stars.

"Our household was very normal and when dad and Doria divorced, we all made it so it was like she had two houses", she wrote.

But Meghan's then-fledgling relationship with Prince Harry, 33, ruled her out of the role, as producers believed she would be unattainable.

Taking to her Twitter account, Samantha vented her frustrations at what the Prince had said, claiming Meghan has a large family who were "always there with her and for her".


In 2016 the actress revealed on her now defunct blog The Tig that she makes the same resolutions year after year.

Kensington Palace also confirmed that Meghan will be giving up her charity work with the United Nations, plus her role as patron at organisations including World Vision Canada and One Young World.

"She's getting in there and it's the family I suppose that she's never had", Prince Harry continued.

"Obviously, she had a family". She always did. Our dad is fantastic and completely self sacrificing. Now Markle's paternal half-brother, Thomas Jr., is speaking about the remarks and the effect it will have on their father, Thomas Sr.

"She's had a really good family".
