Samantha Markle says Palace needs to do THIS to ‘sort out’ Meghan’s father Thomas Markle
Meghan Markle, 36, has not seen her father, Thomas Markle, 73, since her wedding day, it is believed. Thomas has conducted numerous interviews with the media before and after the wedding, which he dropped out of attending last minute following a reported heart attack. Samantha Markle, 53, Meghan’s half sister, revealed what the Palace should do in order to “sort out” her father.
Meghan Markle’s father Thomas Markle is a retired lighting director who lives in Mexico.
He did not attend the royal wedding, reportedly after a heart attack just days before the event.
He has since spoken to the media, including an interview with Good Morning Britain where he claimed to reveal Prince Harry’s views on politics such as Donald Trump and Brexit – despite the expectation that the royals do not get involved in politics.
Now Samantha Markle, Meghan’s half sister, has revealed what she thinks the Palace should do to “sort out” Thomas Markle.
Speaking on Lorraine, broadcaster Dan Wootton said Samantha told him Thomas wanted to meet the Queen

Dan told Lorraine Kelly: “Meghan’s half sister said to me: ‘Look, this is just a guy who needs a trip to Buckingham Palace.
“’He’s always wanted to go to Buckingham Palace, just sort him out guys because he’s not going away.’”
Dan also said to Lorraine that the situation needed to be “resolved”.
He said: “At the end of the day, you’ve got Thomas Markle this guy who’s over in America who wants to talk to the press all the time.
“He spoke to TMZ and said look if the Queen is going to meet Donald Trump why doesn’t she meet me? I’m not as bad.
“This is a situation which has to be resolved and it could be.”
He added: “Why don’t Prince Harry and Clarence House sort this out?”
Thomas is said to be “heartbroken” by the current dynamic with his daughter, a source told The Mirror.
“Thomas is heartbroken. He is at a complete loss as to why he has been excluded,” said the source.
According to the publication, Thomas is said to have told his friends: “I haven’t talked to Meghan and Harry for a long time. I think they’re shot of me now.”
Previously, in an interview with Good Morning Britain, Thomas revealed his secret nickname for Meghan Markle.
Thomas, who was a lighting director, revealed he called his daughter “Bean” through her childhood.
Explaining the cute nickname, Thomas said it was based on a fairytale. He said: “When [Meghan] was a child she loved Jack and the Beanstalk.
“Because she’s so small, I called her Beanie or Beanstalk. Now I call her Bean all the time,” he added.
Asked by presenter Piers Morgan whether he would now call her Duchess of Sussex instead, Thomas said no.
