Meghan Markle’s Dad Thomas Makes Big Statement About Her Son Archie and Daughter Lilibet Aftre Their Pictures Controversy

Thomas Markle, father of Meghan Markle, has expressed his heartfelt sentiments about his grandchildren, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, and his regrets about not meeting his son-in-law, Prince Harry.

In an interview with New Zealand Woman’s Weekly, Thomas Markle shared his sadness over the fact that Archie and Lilibet are growing up without the opportunity to know their cousins and participate in royal traditions such as Trooping the Colour.

“It struck me as very sad that Meghan and Harry’s kids are being denied the right to know their cousins, who look like fantastic children, or take part in things like Trooping the Colour, which is their birthright,” he expressed.

Thomas, who is turning 80 on July 18, also pondered about the future emotions of Archie and Lilibet as they grow older. “They are getting to the age where they will start to ask questions, as all kids do.

I find myself wondering how Archie and Lilibet will feel in a few years’ time when they realise all the things they have missed out on,” he shared.

Reflecting on his relationship with Meghan, Thomas expressed his desire to hear from her, especially on his upcoming birthday, although he acknowledges the unlikelihood of such contact.

The rift between father and daughter dates back to Thomas’s paparazzi scandal and his absence from Meghan’s wedding in 2018. Since then, reports suggest they have not communicated.

Thomas Markle’s poignant comments highlight the complexities within the royal family and his yearning for reconciliation with his daughter Meghan and her family, underscoring the personal and familial challenges that persist amidst public scrutiny and estrangement.
