Meghan Markle news: Has dad Thomas Markle been FROZEN OUT by royals since his interview?

MEGHAN Markle’s father Thomas has made headlines repeatedly since his daughter got engaged to Prince Harry. But has he now gone too far and been frozen out by his daughter and her new family?

Meghan’s father – who is not a fan of Donald Trump – revealed that Prince Harry said Trump should be given “a chance” and Brexit was an “experiment” that “we have to try”.

He also said he “was jealous” of Prince Charles for talking Meghan’s arm at St George’s Chapel but added: “Thank God he was there … how can I ask for a better replacement?”

The interview came after Mr Markle’s last-minute decision not to attend the royal wedding, citing health issues.

There was speculation the decision not to walk his daughter down the aisle could have something to do with the staged photograph scandal which emerged just days before the wedding.

There was speculation the decision not to walk his daughter down the aisle could have something to do with the staged photograph scandal which emerged just days before the wedding.

Now it seems this may not be entirely true.

One source said to be close to the couple said: “Thomas is walking a fine line. This blabbing needs to stop if he wants to maintain any relationship with Harry and Meghan.”

A source close to Mr Markle told US Weekly: “Thomas adores his daughter and swears he never wanted attention from the interviews.

“All he’s ever cared about is protecting Meghan.”

In the Good Morning Interview, however, he expressed dismay that he was not able to be involved in “one of the greatest moments of history.”

He said: “The unfortunate thing for me now is I’m a footnote in one of the greatest moments in history rather than the dad walking her down the aisle. That upsets me somewhat.”

Mr Markle watched the ceremony on television from California.

He said she had “been a princess since the day she was born”, adding: “[Harry] made a good pick, didn’t he?”.
