Meghan Markle's Father Shares Alleged Letter From the Duchess

It's no secret that Meghan Markle has a contentious relationship with her father, Thomas Markle and her half-siblings, Samantha and Thomas Markle Jr.

"Daddy, It is with a heavy heart that I write this, not understanding why you have chose to take this path, turning a blind eye to the pain you're causing", the letter began. "Please stop lying, please stop creating so much pain, please stop exploiting my relationship with my husband", Meghan continued.

Five of Markle's friends appeared in last week's issue of People magazine, including one of the former actor's Suits co-stars, and refuted Thomas Markle's claims that he has been unable to reach his daughter since she tied the knot with Harry, Duke of Sussex, in May 2018. Mr Markle has since threatened to release more of the letter which has been published across the world.

The source also added: "He knows how to get in touch with her".

The duchess further went on to say that he didn't even tell her he wouldn't be attending the wedding, despite telling the press he had, that she had "only ever loved, protected, and defended" him and that she was distraught to hear of his heart attack the week before her wedding from the tabloids, not from him directly.

It seems, by releasing the letter, Thomas Markle has not internalised his daughter's pleas.

"She's like, 'Dad, I'm so heartbroken". The letter has now been confirmed as real, with the duchess's father sharing the five-page letter with The Mail on Sunday. "I love you, and I'm scared.' It was endless". However, he denied Meghan Markle's claims that he hadn't tried to reach her and showed the publication texts to prove that he has tried to contact Meghan Markle and his son-in-law.

"To me this is the ultimate betrayal, and what a tragedy", she said. He says, 'When I opened the letter I was hoping it was the olive branch I'd longed for, ' he said last night.

"You can hate me if you want". I worked it out and if I'd taken all the offers I've had, I could have made $600,000. He told Mail on Sunday that he choose to leak the letter because of what he viewed as his daughter's friends attack against him.

Taking the family row to a whole new level, she tells Daily Star Online: "If pointing out that she is nothing like Diana breaks her heart, too bad it's true".
