Meghan Markle news: Has dad Thomas Markle been FROZEN OUT by royals since his interview? | Royal | News

The latest reports from palace insiders claim Meghan Markle and her new in-laws are “frustrated” by ’s dealings with the press. 

The insider claimed Meghan “hasn’t spoken to Thomas since the day after her wedding,” US Weekly has reported. 

The situation was further aggravated by an unexpected interview Mr Markle, 73, gave to ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

In it, he gushed about how much he loved his daughter, but also revealed some personal details and hinted at Harry’s political alignments. 

’s father – who is not a fan of Donald Trump – revealed that Prince Harry said Trump should be given “a chance” and Brexit was an “experiment” that “we have to try”.

He also said he “was jealous” of Prince Charles for talking Meghan’s arm at St George’s Chapel but added: “Thank God he was there … how can I ask for a better replacement?”

The interview came after Mr Markle’s last-minute decision not to attend the royal wedding, citing health issues. 

There was speculation the decision not to walk his daughter down the aisle could have something to do with the staged photograph scandal which emerged just days before the wedding. 

Mr Markle was repeatedly snapped by paparazzi in the run-up to the wedding, seemingly unaware the images were being taken.

It later emerged the pictures were an attempt to improve his public image after some unflattering publicity. 

Speaking to Good Morning Britain on the scandal, he said: “They’d take photos of me grabbing a beer, take photos of me getting into my car… they’d take photos of me making me look negative.

“I realised it was a serious mistake. It’s hard to take it back.”

However, in the same breath, he insisted Harry and Meghan had been “very forgiving” of the embarrassing incident. 

Now it seems this may not be entirely true. 

One source said to be close to the couple said: “Thomas is walking a fine line. This blabbing needs to stop if he wants to maintain any relationship with Harry and Meghan.”

A source close to Mr Markle told US Weekly: “Thomas adores his daughter and swears he never wanted attention from the interviews. 

“All he’s ever cared about is protecting Meghan.” 

In the Good Morning Interview, however, he expressed dismay that he was not able to be involved in “one of the greatest moments of history.”

He said: “The unfortunate thing for me now is I’m a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history rather than the dad walking her down the aisle. That upsets me somewhat.”

Mr Markle watched the ceremony on television from California.

He said she had “been a princess since the day she was born”, adding: “[Harry] made a good pick, didn’t he?”.
