Thomas Markle Talks About The Family’s Favorite Restaurants

In Meghan Markle’s open letter to congresspeople to push for paid parental leave for all U.S. citizens, she highlighted how she “grew up on $4.99 salad bar” from Sizzler family restaurants.

Her father refuted the claim from his home in Rosarito, Mexico. He told The Sun: “She’s never, ever, ever had to worry about anything like that in her life.

“We’d do the best restaurants in town and we’d do Sizzler because it was convenient. We never had to rub our pennies together and just have the salad bar.

“She had the salad bar — but she had a meal as well.”

Meghan Markle On Her Poor Upbringing

Meghan Markle wrote to Democrats asking for policy reform in an open letter shared on October. In the letter, she recollected her humble beginnings and how her parents struggled to put food on the table, despite having gone to an elite private school and her father being an award-winning lighting director and photographer.

“I grew up on the $4.99 salad bar at Sizzler — it may have cost less back then (to be honest, I can’t remember) — but what I do remember was the feeling: I knew how hard my parents worked to afford this because even at five bucks, eating out was something special, and I felt lucky,” the mother of two reminisced about her childhood in a letter addressed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Meghan’s now-estranged father, Thomas Markle, won the lottery in 1990 and received $750,000 (the equivalent of $1.5 million today) when Meghan Markle was 9 years old. Before and after getting lucky with his big win, he was a successful lighting director on multiple television programs, receiving the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Design Excellence for a Daytime Drama Series for his work on “General Hospital.”

A portion of his lottery money went into paying tuition for Meghan Markle to go to Immaculate Heart, a private all-girls school in Los Angeles.

“And as a Girl Scout, when my troop would go to dinner for a big celebration, it was back to that same salad bar or The Old Spaghetti Factory — because that’s what those families could afford to do too,” the former actress continued in the letter published via Paid Leave For All, an organization that leads the fight “for paid family and medical leave for all working people.”
