She doesn’t want to hear about it anymore. Cold for several years with her father, whom she had accused of talking too much in the press and of having used her notoriety to make paid paparazzades, Meghan Markle made a point of honor to her relationship with Thomas Markle , assuring no longer to recognize “the man who raised her”. But if it is no longer part of the life of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the latter has nevertheless made a nice gesture against him, after the birth of his son Archie.
In Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand reveal that a few hours after the delivery of Meghan Markle, her mother Doria Ragland announced the birth of her grandson to Thomas Markle in a text message. “[Meghan] did not want him to find out after the rest of the world. But she did not want to know if her father had replied to her mother’s text”, specify the authors in this biography, relayed by Buzzfeed, and which makes much noise within the monarchy for several months.
Meghan Markle called a “liar” by her father
An announcement that probably pleased Thomas Markle, who has never met Archie, however, and this in particular because his quarrel with the Duchess of Sussex dates back to shortly before the latter’s marriage. If she tried to reconnect with Thomas Markle, in a final text she expressed her disappointment, assuring that she had “done nothing but love, [him] protect and [him] defend”, offering him including financial support, but also vis-à-vis his health problems.
“And instead of talking to me, of accepting this help, you stopped answering your phone to just talk to the tabloids”, she had written to him before cutting ties with him. So much so that she skipped her 76th birthday last July. And the book Finding Freedom is not going to help their relationship, as Thomas Markle has already stated that he does not trust his daughter “and does not want to know this person because of lies, manipulation and deception” .
