Dear Dr D,
I understand that this is being published in the leading business daily The Economic Times. Here goes: My daughter is an actress recently married into Britain’s royal family. She refuses to talk to me, saying that I leak our private lives and her correspondence with me to the media. Nothing could be further from the truth.
She wrote to me suggesting that I only communicate with her through the tabloids, but as you can see, I am doing this through the pink papers as well. Now I sent her a note requesting a photoop with her, and she replied that “I’m telling you I don’t want to communicate through the media, and you’re asking me to communicate through the media. Did you hear anything I said?” It’s almost like they’re ships passing.
Dear T Markle,
Diana, the late princess of Wales, had a similar problem with a former lover. He was a soldier who the press called ‘Major Rat’. He put her letters to him on sale. On balance, I see it from your point of view. This is a family that is famous for being famous, and for no real achievement of its own. Wealthy only because of birth. Why should those related to them then miss out? Carry on, Markle.
