According to Meghan Markle’s close friends, the Duchess of Sussex has tried to repair the relationship between her and her father, but there’s a good reason why she has distanced herself from him.
“I think really she’s been incredibly hurt and disappointed by how many members of her family have behaved, but from what I am told, she’s moved on,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Fox News.
In February of this year, Markle’s father Thomas Markle released a heartbreaking letter the former “Suits” star wrote to him in the wake of her wedding to Harry in May 2018. The former Hollywood lighting director, 74, told The Mail he originally planned to keep the letter “totally private out of respect for her” until her friends “launched their attack” on him in a shocking tell-all profile for People magazine.
“Daddy, it is with a heavy heart that I write this, not understanding why you have chosen to take this path, turning a blind eye to the pain you are causing,” the 37-year-old wrote in a handwritten letter, dated August 2018, that’s over five pages.
“You’ve told the press that you called me to say you weren’t coming to the wedding — that didn’t happen because you never called,” wrote Markle. “I have only ever loved, protected, and defended you, offering whatever financial support I could, worrying about your health. So the week of the wedding to hear about you having a heart attack through a tabloid was horrifying. I called and texted… I begged you to accept help — we sent someone to your home… and instead of speaking to me to accept this or any help, you stopped answering your phone and chose to only speak to tabloids.”
“I pleaded with you to stop reading the tabloids,” she continued. “On a daily basis, you fixated and clicked on the lies they were writing about me, especially those manufactured by your other daughter, who I barely know. You watched me silently suffer at the hands of your vicious lies, I crumbled inside.”
