Additionally, Silverstein, who is a professional performance artist and a teacher of the subject, spoke about how the relationship shared by Meghan and Thomas was as complicated and difficult as a relationship between a father and teenager was. Silverstein even shared that he was relatively closer to Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, and although the divorce led to the creation of tensions in the Markle household, Silverstein's interactions with Meghan Markle's father, who is a retired lighting director and a director of photography, were always cordial.
