Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, has openly shared his feelings of heartbreak towards his daughter and son-in-law, Prince Harry, for refusing him access to his beloved grandchildren.

Key Takeaway

Thomas Markle expresses his heartbreak and disappointment at being denied access to his grandchildren, Archie and Lilibet, by Meghan and Harry. He considers their actions towards him as cruel and believes he has done nothing wrong to warrant such treatment. Despite the existence of legal options, Thomas has chosen not to pursue them at this time. The strained relationship between Meghan and her father continues, with no signs of reconciliation.

Thomas conveyed his distress, stating, “I’m very upset about it as well because this is a cruel thing to do to a grandparent… to deny the right to see their grandchild.” He emphasized that he had done nothing wrong and that there was no justification for their treatment of him, claiming, “I’m a really loving father, and she knows that, and there’s no excuse for treating me this way… no excuse to treat grandparents that way.”

Although California law permits grandparents to seek court orders to ensure visitation with their grandchildren, Thomas has decided against taking that route, at least for now. The strained relationship between Meghan and her father began in 2018 when Thomas collaborated with paparazzi during the lead-up to the royal wedding.

Thomas further revealed that he shares a similar plight with King Charles, as both are currently unable to see their grandkids. However, it remains uncertain if any doors have been entirely shut in Charles’ case. Thomas believes that Harry is simply following Meghan’s lead, suggesting that there is no indication of any thawing of tensions between them.
