Meghan Markle’s Estranged Father Thomas Will Likely Never Meet The Royal Baby
9 April 2019 Entertainment
In a new TLC documentary, one royal expert is claiming Thomas Markle will never see his grandchild.
In a clip sent to Fox News, Duncan Larcombe said the chances of Meghan Markle’sestranged father meeting her firstborn with Prince Harry are nil.
“I can’t think for a moment that Thomas Markle will ever be able to meet his grandson or granddaughter,” said Larcombe, one of the experts consulted in the upcoming doc “Meghan & Harry: A Royal Baby Story.”
The former American actress, 37, became Britain’s Duchess of Sussex when she married Harry, 34, in May 2018. The couple is expecting their first child sometime this spring.
Markle’s estranged half-sister Samantha Markle, who also participated in the special, chimed, “You can’t hurt people like this and then turn around and flip the script and play victim.”
Thomas, a former Hollywood lighting director, has not spoken to his famous daughter after it was revealed he sold photos of himself to paparazzi ahead of the royal wedding.
Samantha, 54, insisted in the clip that Markle has “hurt the family” for not including them in her new life as a royal.
“Meghan & Harry: A Royal Baby Story” aims to shed light on how Markle’s first child will rock the future of the monarchy. It features interviews with Grant Harrold, former butler to Harry’s father Prince Charles; former royal protection officer Ken Wharfe; historian Kate Williams; and several other royal experts of the standing of Larcombe, who is the author of “Prince Harry: The Inside Story.”
In February of this year, Thomas Markle, 74, released an emotional letter the former “Suits”star wrote to him in the wake of her wedding to Harry.
UK’s Daily Mail confirmed the account Markle’s close friends have shared with People magazine concerning the rift between father and daughter.
Thomas 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.
“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,” Markle wrote in a handwritten letter that’s over five pages for the patriarch dated August 2018.
“Your actions have broken my heart into a million pieces — not simply because you have manufactured such unnecessary and unwarranted pain, but by making the choice to not tell the truth as you are puppeteered in this. Something I will never understand.”
