Thomas Markle continues to give one interview after the other. With his confusing statements about the British Royals, he's getting more and more in a fiddle though. This time he even compares the British royal family to Scientology. What is the reason for the Royals being "cult-like" in his eyes?

In the most recent of his countless interviews, in which Meghan Markle's father already revealed a lot about his famous daughter, he describes the British royal family as "cult-like". Thomas Markle (74) explains this to the "Sun" and emphasizes especially the secrecy of the Royals. “They are either like Scientologists or the Stepford family,” he claims.

Thomas Markle: No contact with Meghan 

"If they hear anybody say anything they just lock the doors. They need to speak up!" This is how Thomas Markle describes his daughter's new family in the interview. In fact, the last time he had personal contact with Harry and Meghan was shortly after their wedding in May.

Thomas Markle also claims that the Royals might have a secret handshake. For Prince Harry's (33) father-in-law, his daughter's family, with whom he has little contact, seems to be full of secrets.

Since Duchess Meghan (37) had not spoken to him for so long, Thomas Markle now fears that he will never see his daughter again.
