The Duchess of Sussex’s brother Thomas has become a contestant on the Australian show Big Brother VIP.
His appearance on the celebrity reality show will give Meghan a ‘taste of her own medicine’ according to one newspaper columnist.
Thomas Markle Junior has spoken out against Meghan several times in the past, The Mirror reported.
In the trailer for the show, he claimed: “I told Prince Harry, I think she’s going to ruin your life. She’s very shallow.”
Meghan is also estranged from her father Thomas Snr and half-sister Samantha, who have both talked to the press about her.
Meanwhile, since moving to California from the UK, both Meghan and Harry have given several interviews in which they have talked about the royal family.
In their bombshell chat with Oprah Winfrey, she made several accusations against the royals saying that a family member had questioned what colour their son Archie’s skin would be before he was born. She also said she had felt suicidal during her pregnancy but was refused help.
Appearing on the Daily Mail’s Palace Confidential show, writer and columnist Sarah Vine was asked if she “felt sorry” for Meghan given her brother’s appearance on the show.
But Sarah replied: “No, I think she’s about to find out what it feels like to have someone cash in on your family, which is what the Queen has been dealing with for the last 18 months.
“She and Harry have been cashing in on their Royal Family, by cashing in on all sorts of Netflix deals and giving interviews to people and saying dreadful things.
“It’s a taste of her own medicine I reckon.”
While journalist Charlotte Griffiths added: “The last thing she wants to be associated with is Big Brother.”
Meanwhile, just last week, Meghan’s dad Thomas Markle Senior appeared on GB News in the UK and claimed he had tried to make amends with his daughter.
The 77-year-old – who has never met Harry or his grandchildren Archie and Lilibet – says he sent Meghan a bunch of roses as he tried to mend their broken relationship.
But as of yet, he says he’s had no response from the former Suits star.
“I really didn’t expect to hear back but I tried nonetheless,” he said.
He told GB News presenter Dan Wootton: “I wished her a happy birthday and brighter days ahead but I’ve not heard back.”
He also told him: “I don’t know if he’s the one behind it, but I really think that Harry and some of her friends have changed her. I love my daughter, but I don’t always like what they’re doing.”
