Another week, another chapter in the Markle debacle.
This time Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall has been dragged into the mix, and apparently the entire Markle debacle saga is down to her.
A “palace insider” has spilled the beans on Camilla, according to New Idea.
During an apparent phone call between Meghan Markle and her estranged father Thomas Markle, he let the cat out of the bag and revealed he had been talking to Camilla.
The 71-year-old has apparently been pulling these hearsay puppet strings for a while – since before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s wedding.
Camilla, being a major gossip queen, was reportedly hoping to “dig up some dirt that might cause Harry to break off the engagement”.
Hmmm. Regardless of whatever “dirt” she hypothetically could’ve dug up, in the world of the royals once you announce your engagement you’re kind of already married.
But the sensational claims don’t stop there, good ol’ Camilla has seemingly become rather fond of Thomas and vice versa, getting on “like a house on fire”.
So, what has Thomas gotten out of it all? Some “bottles of his favourite whiskey,” courtesy of Camilla. Seems like an underpayment if you ask us, if these claims are true.
As many will know, Thomas and Meghan’s half sister Samantha Markle have been regulars on the press circuit as of late.
Most recently Thomas likened the royals to “cult-like Scientologists” in an interview with The Sun. How charming.
We’re reckoning Camilla really wouldn’t want to be likened to a “cult-like Scientologists,” so our bets are she and Thomas really aren’t great pals at all – just a hunch.
