Even though Thomas Markle promises to stop talking already, it doesn't look like Duchess Meghan's family's reign of terror is going to end any time soon.
Between her dad and two of her half-siblings, the Palace is at a loss for what to do.
This isn't the good ol' days when they could just throw people in the dungeons, folks. No, but in all seriousness, the Palace is having to rethink its long-standing policies to address Prince Harry's new in-laws.
A source spoke with Entertainment Tonight about Meghan Markle's family and how she and Kensington Palace intend to deal with this ongoing problem.
Speaking of Meghan and her father, an insider reveals: "She has gone through periods of difficulty with her father in the past."
That's pretty normal for most families.
"But," the source makes sure to clarify. "She does love him."
Of course, in this situation, loving the person who is constantly blabbing to any camera he sees just makes it more painful.
"That’s what’s been so difficult about this," the insider explains.
"The Palace," the source says. "Normally takes a firm policy of not commenting on personal matters."
The royal family is always going to be the center of rumors and speculation and conspiracy theories.
The insider reveals that Kensington Palace "is now considering a more aggressive strategy to deal with the situation."
Jokes about the Queen hiring assassins aside, this is a big deal.
The source explains that the Palace is considering how to deal "with both her father and her sister."
"No one wants to see this continue," the insider shares.
For anyone, having family members constantly embarrassing and badmouthing them on a global stage is an absolute horror.
However, the source does mention that the Palace is "less concerned" when it comes to Meghan's half-sister, Samantha.
They're less worried, the insider explains, "because she has never had a real relationship with Meghan."
Meghan was close with her idiot dad. Samantha, it seems, is just delighting in being cruel on any show that will give her airtime.
Entertainment Tonight had previously heard about how strained things have become between Meghan and Daddy Dearest.
"She has not spoken to her father in more than 10 weeks since her wedding," an insider revealed.
That is understandable. Especially since her father, by his own admission, hung up on Prince Harry a short time after his photo scandal came to light.
Meghan, the source shared, "is still hurt by her father, who has both staged the photos and continues to give paid interviews."
He claims that the interview that he gave on Sunday will be his last. We'll see.
"The Palace is at a loss of what to do and is re-evaluating options," the insider stated.
The Palace is condiering a lot of things, the source said, "including a more aggressive strategy to stem the embarrassment caused by Meghan's dad, half-sister, and half-brother."
What we're guessing is that the Palace will either give official statements to clear the air and discredit Meghan's relatives and some of their nastier claims.
Or they may use their considerable resources to counter Harry's in-laws in a less direct manner, perhaps with a media campaign of their own.
It's even conceivable that they could effectively bribe Meghan's family into silence, though that would set a very alarming precedent.
