Thomas Markle, the estranged father of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has expressed disappointment at his daughter’s decision to drag her husband away from the royal family..
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made an announcement on Wednesday that they will be relocating to Canada. They also revealed that they will be chasing financial independence.
Their decision is said to have left the Queen furious who stated that they are still having discussions on it.
Reacting to the development, Thomas Markle told Us Weekly: ‘I’ll just simply say I’m disappointed.’
Speaking in an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper last year, Markle pleaded for reconciliation between him and Meghan Markle.
‘I would like them to send me a picture of Archie so I can frame it and put it on my wall beside the one of Meghan. Isn’t that what any grandfather would want? I’d love to know if he’s got the famous Markle nose,’ Markle said.
‘Sometimes I get the feeling people think I don’t love my daughter. I do love her very much. I would love nothing more than to put a picture of Archie in a frame and place it beside the one of Meghan.
‘There was never any problem between Meghan and me until recently. I’ve stayed quiet because Meghan was pregnant with Archie but I’m speaking out now because they and their PR people are continuing to ghost me out of her life.
‘Of course, I’m disappointed not to see Archie. I had hoped becoming a mother would mellow Meghan and she would reach out.’
