Thomas Markle spoke to Good Morning Britain in a world exclusive interview where he stated his worries about the ongoing rift between him and his daughter, Meghan. In his interview, he said he hopes to meet his grandchild. He also mentioned how he has still not met his son-in-law Prince Harry and would like the Queen to help the rift which has left him ‘ghosted’.
Thomas called on Queen Elizabeth to help heal this relationship. “I would appreciate anything [the Queen] could do. I would think she would want to resolve family problems. All families, royal or otherwise, are the same and they should all be together – certainly around the holidays,” to told Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.
“I’m certainly hoping that everything goes well, and they produce a beautiful baby and I’ll get to see a little Meghan or little Harry. That would be very nice and I look forward to that happening. I’m hopeful. I think it should happen. I think she’ll make a great mom and maybe things will soften a little bit and we’ll connect again,” he continued. “There has to be a place for me. I’m her father, and I will be the grandfather to the children — so all I can say is that I’m here, she knows it. I’ve reached out to her and I need her to reach back to me. I love her very much.”
Thomas said he is “very disappointed” that his daughter is still ignoring him. “I’m not sure why it’s happening, and I’m waiting, I’m reaching out. I’ve been trying to reach out to her for several weeks. Every day I try to text her. I just haven’t received any comment back.”
Thomas also said that he doesn’t believe the claims that his daughter had been rude to staff. “I don’t really believe them,” said Markle. “She was raised on Hollywood stages and learned to respect the crew and learned to respect everyone. I just can’t see her being rude to anyone. It’s not her.”
“She’s always been a very controlling person, and that’s part of her nature. She’s never been rude. The ghosting I don’t completely understand. To my knowledge she’s always been in charge – that’s her nature – but she’s always been polite with it.”
“We’re very close. What’s happening I’m not sure of. I’d love to talk to her about it,” he said. “Here again, I think it comes back to the fact that so many reporters would pick up on one of the articles I’ve done and written their own stories and tell lies and say things I haven’t said – if they’re believing that, that’s unfortunate as they’ve always told me not to believe anything in any of the tabloids.”
“People are saying I should be quiet about this and not speak, if I don’t speak, they will speak to me,” he said. “That hasn’t happened. I don’t plan to be silent for the rest of my life. I love my daughter very much and she has to know that. I would really appreciate if she would just call me, reach out to me somehow, send me a text, just say you’re there and you’re hearing me.”
