Thomas Markle Says Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Don't Deserve To Be On 'Time' Magazine Cover: 'There Are Far More Influential People'
Thomas Markle didn't hold back when he was asked about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's recent Time magazine cover, in which they topped the Most Influential People list.
In a video obtained by Fox News, Thomas was spotted at a newsstand in Los Angeles, Calif., but looked like he didn't purchase the periodical.
"Well that is only Time magazine’s opinion, there are far more influential people, like the Queen," he said about the cover.
Thomas isn't the only person who criticized the couple's cover story.
"'In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the duke and duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know. They don’t just opine. They run toward the struggle,'" writes @chefjoseandres #TIME100," the publication tweeted on September 15.
In response, Piers Morgan posted eight laughing emojis.
Royal biographer Angela Levin also chimed in about the pair's recent accolade.
"Sure they did some good things, absolutely," she said. "But if you're saying they are the world's most influential people, you have to take into account the negative. I don’t see how you can crown someone as influential when they are so bitter and angry with her in-laws and his own family, while spouting out criticism which has often been found out to be a lie. It’s absolutely baffling."
She continued, "The lies, the disrespect they have shown to a woman of 95 — one of the most respected women in the world, who recently lost her husband - just because they don't like some of the things she's said and done. It’s absolutely appalling. The world’s most influential people? Surely not on the values of family."
Twitter users also couldn't help but point out the over the top snapshot.
One person said, “This photo looks photoshopped. Also, the way they are positioned is very revealing: it’s the Meghan show and Harry is just the supporting actor," while another added, “Not only does it look like Harry was photoshopped in, this is the most airbrushed photo I have ever seen.”
