Meghan Markle’s Dad “Disappointed” She’s Stepping Back From Royal Duties, While BFF Calls Her “Strong”

Perhaps not surprisingly, Meghan Markle’s estranged dad isn’t a fan of her decision to step back from her Royal Family commitments alongside Prince Harry. “I’ll just simply say I’m disappointed,” 74-year-old Thomas Markle told <i>Us Weekly </i>on Wednesday after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they’ll no longer take on many royal duties and plan to only live in the UK part-time. Meanwhile, Markle’s Canadian BFF hinted that she’s proud of her bestie’s decision by posting a quote on Instagram. “A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink,” Jessica Mulroney wrote, quoting a song by artist Gina Carey. <i>Page Six </i>also notes that Mulroney reacted to an Instagram post from Katie Couric about Harry and Meghan’s news by leaving nothing but a red-heart emoji.
