I don’t like the one I’m seeing now. “This one isn’t even a stage smile – this is a pained smile”, Thomas said,.
“That might be just having a couple of bad days. I don’t know. It really worries me. I think she’s under too much pressure. There’s a high price to pay to be married to that family.” He went ahead to say.
The 76 year old also gave his opinion on the rules followed by the Royals especially the dress code “Meghan seems like something out of an old movie. Why in 2018 are we dressing like the 1930s? Why do they have to cover their knees?”
“I think Meghan is in deeper than I am. “I’m not blaming Harry or anyone but they are following rules that don’t make sense to me” he went ahead.
