He *says* it's from his daughter? Then it must indeed be from her.

I think she should reach a point in her adult life where she stops blaming her parents.

Have you ever heard those lyrics: "I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do"?

It's kind of like that. Yes, her father seems like a manipulative and egotistical man, but she is her own person now and she aught to make the right choices seperate from her father. She can't keep using him as a psychological crutch for blame.

This swings back to fathers. I believe men are deficit or lack in empathy, and that empathy usually comes naturally to a woman (though there are exceptions). The reason men run away from people: be it their kids, wives or responsibilities is because their inability to empathise means they don't care about who they leave behind.

It's interesting that now Meghan has come so far as a public figure and an appendage to a Royal, he wants to be associated with her. This could be narcissism, i.e. the idea that a narcissist must surround himself with influential people because it makes him look good or powerful.

Well you did ask ďare you sure she penned the letterĒ.
If you are okay with a father selling the content of his daughters private letters to the tabloids so be it.

This is the way I see it too. I don't follow "Everything royal" like I suppose some people do, but it's always seemed to me that her father and her half siblings have been childish, mercenary, and angry that they couldn't somehow cash in on the royalty train.


It's little wonder to me that she chooses to ignore them. What is she really supposed to do? She's a royal princess...is she supposed to get down and roll in the proverbial mud with these folks?

From what I know, her father actually has helped her out a lot in her life yet she continually cries like a little girl about him. I think Prince Harry made a HUGE mistake marrying this spoiled little princess who always wants to whine and cry like a two year old. A woman like Princess Diana makes Meghan look like a toddler and would slap her around from Zeta Reticuli and back in comparison.

That's just me though, which I would really like to hear opinions from parents.
Sorry, but unless you are part of the immediate family you have ZERO basis to draw any conclusions.

Assuming the letter is really from Meghan to her dad and he gave it to the press, then I blame him. Meghan's family is highly dysfunctional. They obviously want the publicity or they wouldn't be out there looking for their 15 minutes. Meghan may have her hangups too. I never heard of her before Harry and don't know much about her personality. Right now, it looks like her family is the biggest problem.

Except her mother who tries to avoid the spotlight, continues to support herself as a yoga teacher, and seems level headed and stable.

He only popped up once the engagement was official and then he proceeded to do every single last thing he wasn't supposed to do in preparation of the wedding to make a quick buck.
Meghan lived with Thomas for 10 years, during which time he sent her to private school. So he was there for her during her "formative years". He did not just "pop up" once the engagement was announced.
Furthermore, it was quite shabby of Harry and Meghan not to help him with arrangements. Harry still hasn't even met Thomas.

. This man isn't a parent. He's a mooch who is trying to find fortune and fame through a glorified sperm donation. He hasn't been there for Meghan EVER; even now he goes between trashing her and her new family to begging them to forgive him in exchange for attention. At best he has an illness of some kind that pushes this behavior involentarly.
You are incorrect. Meghan herself paid public tribute to her father in post after post on instagram and on her bloh, "The Tig." Many websites have screen shots of these posts. Let's put it this way: Meghan was either lying then, or she is lying now.

Not really , seldom is THAT what they chose .... but busy body day dreaming trash sells well to the masses.. How sad... Remember when the trash rags only sold well to the lower classes? I guess if you give it some thought they still do..
