Over the weekend Meghan Markle’s dad decided that he will speak to the media again and addressed those feud rumors between his daughter and Kate Middleton. He gave a very detailed interview to The Mail on Sunday, where he talks about how his life has changed ever since his daughter met her prince charming. He also defended Meghan and said that she can be ‘demanding but never rude,’ after reports that she had some feud with sister-in-law Kate Middleton.

Even though he is trying to help and asking her to talk to him, these moves are not making Meghan very happy.

A friend very close to the Duchess of Sussex told Vanity Fair that ever since she married Prince Harry in May, she has only spoken to her father once. In this conversation, she gave him a major ultimatum. “Meghan made it clear that they could only have a relationship if he kept his silence,” the friend said. “She told him that he couldn’t speak to the press, plain and simple. But he keeps doing that, and so she feels that she cannot trust him.”

“[Meghan] has also said if they are to have a relationship, then he has to cut off contact with the rest of his family, including Samantha, who Meghan blames for a lot of the problems with her father. The thing is, whatever Samantha has done, she is still Thomas’s daughter, so that’s a hard call. And as for speaking to the press, he says he doesn’t know how else to get Meghan’s attention.”

Two weeks ago The Sun reports that there was another awkward situation between the two Duchesses. Sources shared with the publication, claiming that Kate told Meghan not to berate members of her team at Kensington Palace.

Kate, reportedly told the former actress: “That’s unacceptable, they’re my staff and I speak to them.” The source added that: “She and Kate fell out when she b******ed Kate’s staff.” Meghan’s father says he is baffled by the reports. ‘I don’t recognize this person,’ said Thomas, shaking his head. ‘The Meghan I know was always sweet, kind, generous. She was always demanding but never rude. I don’t want to say or do anything to hurt my daughter but I worry she is going to hurt herself.’

Thomas admitted: “I don’t pretend to know what she’s like now. I’m not selling stories. People make things up and my daughter and her husband believe the lies, the one thing they told me never to do. They think I’m giving hundreds of interviews. That’s rubbish. I am not perfect, I made mistakes but my punishment does not fit the crime. Even murderers get visits from their daughters in jail.” Mr. Markle said he has repeatedly reached out to Meghan to try to heal the rift.

‘I have sent several texts. Her number hasn’t changed and they haven’t bounced back,’ he says. ‘I’ve pleaded with her to pick up the phone. I wrote her a two-page letter and sent it by certified mail via her representative in Los Angeles. I asked her why she was believing the lies. I also pointed out the Royals haven’t always been perfectly behaved. I wrote that I’ve never played pool naked, nor have I dressed up as a Nazi [a reference to Harry’s infamous pictures in Las Vegas in 2012 and the time that he wore a crude imitation of a Nazi uniform, including a swastika armband, in 2005].

‘I even hand-delivered a letter to Doria asking her why our daughter won’t speak to me.’
