In his latest press interview after his daughter Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, Thomas Markle says the Royal Family live like Scientologists.
In a new interview with The Sun on Friday, Markle said that the Royal Family ‘are either like Scientologists or the Stepford family’.
He explained, “If they hear anybody say anything they just lock the doors. They need to speak up! They are cult-like—like Scientology—because they are secretive…They close the door, pull the shades down and put their fingers in their ears so they don’t have to hear. Maybe they have a secret handshake too! You cannot ask a question of them—as they won’t answer.”
Critics of the Church of Scientology often accuse it of being a cult and hindering individual expression, which practitioners of the faith such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta deny. Neither the Royal Family nor the Duchess of Sussex herself has responded to these allegations.
Markle has previously voiced his criticisms of the Royal Family many times, talking about everything from how they shunned him to how his daughter looks scared during public appearances. He also told the press how after he talked to Prince Harry following the paparazzi photo scandal, he hung up on the prince after saying, “Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead…then you could pretend to be sad.”
He also said of Meghan, “I hope we reconcile. I’d hate to die without speaking to Meghan again.” Meghan has so far not said anything about the drama him and her step-siblings have caused, and it does not seem like she plans to address this in the future.
