Duchess Meghan's Dad Blasts the Queen for Meeting Trump Before Him

  Duchess Meghan's Dad Blasts the Queen for Meeting Trump Before Him Thomas Markle says in a new interview that he is not happy about Queen Elizabeth II agreeing to meet with President Donald Trump before him. “If the queen is willing to meet our arrogant and insensitive president, she has no excuse not to meet me,” the 73-year-old told TMZ on Tuesday, June 26. “I’m nowhere near as bad.”The retired TV lighting director claimed the royal family put him in a “penalty box” after he blindsided them by appearing on Good Morning Britain. He told the website that he hasn’t spoken with any royals, including his daughter Meghan, since his June 18 tell-all interview.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's recent decision over the last couple weeks to be hands off at some events (like the Queen's Young Leaders Awards and Trooping the Colour) isn't because they have broken any rules being so handsy in the past or have to follow any new ones as a married couple. Myka Meier explains the expectation around royal PDA.: Why Meghan and Harry Have Cut Back on PDA © AP Why Meghan and Harry Have Cut Back on PDA When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived at the Your Commonwealth Youth Challenge Reception tonight, the two did not hold hands or show any real signs of affection, even though the Queen wasn't there to elevate the formalness of the event.

Their interactions were all very chaste: Meghan was just barely photographed touching Harry's arm briefly-a far cry from the very visible kissing, hand-holding, and generally cuddly PDA the two have shown previously, especially at events before their wedding.

But their recent decision over the last couple weeks to be hands off at some events (like the Queen's Young Leaders Awards and Trooping the Colour) isn't because they have broken any rules being so handsy in the past, or to follow any new guidelines as a married couple.

In fact, according to Beaumont Etiquette's founder and director Myka Meier, a British-American trained by a former member of the Queen's household, their showing affection is "actually encouraged [by the family]," she told ELLE.com.

"If you look at the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles they’re very affectionate. Extremely affectionate. If you Google them at any recent event they’re always touching, holding hands, giggling. So I think people are just comparing the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William [who do not show much PDA publicly] to Harry and Meghan. And it’s just a matter of style and comfort."

  Elon Musk says SpaceX is building a ‘kid-sized submarine’ to rescue trapped soccer team Just days after engineers from SpaceX and the Boring Company traveled to Thailand to assist with the rescue of a soccer team trapped in the Tham Luang cave complex, CEO Elon Musk says that they are working on a “tiny, kid-size submarine” constructed out of parts from a Falcon 9 rocket. Earlier this week, Musk noted that they were considering a couple of options, from drilling holes into the cave, to constructing an inflatable tube, to some kind of Kevlar escape pod.

"I always think the important thing to remember is that people forget that they’re working royals," Meier continued. "So when we saw them on their engagement photos and people were commenting at how roughed up they were, that’s absolutely fine because they’re not presenting a serious-natured event. They’re not walking into a ceremony commemorating death or something horrific by showing PDA. They would never be so disrespectful. But the ways that we have seen them have been really social, in terms of the engagement, the marriage, the announcements, just walking through very informal events together. I think it’s something that’s absolutely fine and a matter of personal preference and also mirroring the body language and protocol of the event you’re attending."

So if Harry and Meghan go to Wimbledon together (Meghan's expected to attend to support her friend Serena Williams), PDA is more likely, for example, Meier said. "If you’re going to a sporting event you’re going to be much more jovial and with [Prince William and Kate Middleton], we’ve even seen them kissing or hugging. We saw them hugging at [the Olympics]. But then as they go to a much more serious event, as if to commemorate a battle, they’re very solemn."

Meghan and Harry have been at fewer somber events. Tonight, as they were meeting with youth leaders at a reception to talk about to how address the challenges of the UK Commonwealth in the years ahead, they may have restrained themselves to reflect the subject matter.

"It’s up to each and every royal and royal couple about how affectionate they are," Meier concluded. "There’s no protocol that tells them they can’t hug or kiss or touch. There’s no rule book like that. Each senior member of the royal family is trusted to make the judgement calls of what’s appropriate and when. It’s all about being trusted to make those calls on their own.”
