Meghan Markle's father feels he's been 'ghosted' by his daughter
In a world exclusive Meghan Markle’s dad Thomas Markle told today’s Good Morning Britain that he’s “hopeful” he’ll meet his grandchild and wants The Queen to help heal the rift that has left him “shunned” and “ghosted”.
Speaking of their ongoing rift he said: “I’m very disappointed by it. 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.”
He added: “I just keep asking her to respond back to me. I haven’t got any response back. I’ve sent a letter as well.”
Despite being ignored by the Duchess of Sussex for several weeks, Mr Markle said he loves his daughter "very much" and is still 'hopeful' that the situation between him and his daughter will resolve itself.
He said “I’m hopeful that soon something will be resolved and we’ll be talking. This can’t continue forever. People are saying I should be quiet about this and not speak, if I don’t speak, they will speak to me. 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.”
