But while Meghan is happy to throw herself into her new royal duties, her father Thomas Markle - who was unable to attend the wedding because he had to undergo surgery on his heart in the USA - is convinced she's really unhappy and stressed.

Cape Town - Thomas Markle is convinced his daughter Meghan is unhappy in her new role in the royal family and is planning to jet across to the United Kingdom in a few weeks time to meet her. Claiming that "I've seen her smile for years".

He continued: 'I've seen her smile for years. "I don't care whether she is pissed off at me or not". "I would hope she sent one - because every Father's Day before she has". According to him, it's a "pained smile". "I think she's under too much pressure", he said.

If that weren't enough, Thomas also criticized the way Meghan has adapted to royal protocol and even her new wardrobe.

"I would like to make this my last interview", he said. He added that he would book his own hotel room and attempt to reach out to the royal family.

Even if Meghan did have any worries on her mind, I'm not sure she'd be willing to tell her dad, just in case he spilt the beans to the press.

Meghan Markle's dad Thomas has gone against her wishes yet again and has spoken to the United Kingdom media about his Duchess of Sussex daughter.

On Saturday, Kate and Meghan showed the world just how close they have become as they made their first joint appearance together without their husbands.

"Does this make any sense to you or anyone else?"

"I have already expressed a message and that is for them all to shut up". I don't get it.

"Meghan seems like something out of an old movie", he said. "I should be regarded with the respect of any other father of the bride", Mr Markle said. He bemoaned the lack of Meghan's family members from the church during the star-studded ceremony.

The duchess has received backlash for showing off her shoulders at royal events.
